Legends | The Perfect Gun For Jammin’
Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Image

In the 1950s, the sounds of rock and roll were filling the airwaves across the nation. Transistor radios were all the rage and one innovative shop at Winchester came up with an idea—why not combine two great American classics? So in 1955, they took a prototype .308 Model 70 and built a transistor radio into the right side of the buttstock.
While a novel idea, this Winchester Model 70 with a radio in the stock was never mass produced. Photo by Michael Ives

A series of holes were carved in a trademark “W” outline that allowed the sound to be heard. The inset radio was fitted with matched wood tuning and volume control knobs. The builders completed the look with a flashy chrome finish and marketed it at trade shows around the country.

Unfortunately, the radio received better reception than the radio rifle did, as sportsmen realized that “Hound Dog” blaring from a tree stand would scare off the deer. Others felt that the heavy recoil of some cartridges might quickly render the radio useless. Thus, Winchester decided not to go into full production with the concept, and this single prototype rifle was the only one ever made.

I can't imagine the impulse from the recoil would be too friendly to solder joints and components.

For as many deer as one sees on public land around here you might as well have something like that . Maybe outfit an AR with a DVD player and a coffee pot , refrigerator and microwave .

Well, I've seen deer en mass show up while a farrier was hammering horseshoes on the anvil. The joke was he was going th carry his anvil deer huntin and beat on it.

If I wanted to hunt deer I could probably just jump on one in the driveway and wrassle it to the ground, although I'm not sure I'd win.

Deer hunting is fairly big out here. Lots of hunters come to the island during deer season. Between the ticks and the collisions, the herd needs to be thinned. :shock:
