    Here's one you don't see every day. (Any Hal Swiggett fans here?)

    Charter Arms Pathfinder with a vintage Hutson Handgunner scope. Hal Swiggett wrote about just this combination years ago, and I've been intrigued by it, especially after getting the chance to handle Hal's gun.

He found several original Hutson scope mounts, but none that fit the little Charter Arms, so he machined the bottom half of the mount from scratch!

    Thanks, Gentlemen. This little scope mount is a real thing of beauty.




    I've got a soft spot for the old, odd, and unique. One of these days I'll post the gun in my avatar -- completely impractical, and a huge leap backwards in technology, but it makes me smile.
