Wow, that is something. In this part of the country the humidity is so high there would be nothing left of it by now.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

The tape was put on by the team that recovered it to keep the stock from falling apart. The butt of the stock was actually sunk in the ground 3-4 inches. It had been there for decades. In the USA Today link above, there's another link to the parks Facebook page that has more pictures.

No warranty on this one lol
But it's interesting. 1873 Winchester wow.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
