I was certainly curious about the 222 caliber designation on the worthen and inquired via phone and the only thing I got back was that it was indeed a triple deuce. Worthen died in 1940? And the 222 was born in 1950? Not a lot of knowledge about any of the rifles it seemed.

Im a novice at best but was that really a Minar? All I know about him is through reading OConnor. The sukalle barrel spiked my interest. Mine is super accurate.

I was pretty surprised at the high prices and I came home empty handed. Many guns there brought two or three times what I felt they were worth.


Hi Shane,
Is this someone I know that attends the Tulsa show?

The Worthen definitely looked like a collection of parts.

It does appear that someone got a Linden for $775. Likely refinished.
