I was a fan of Herter's after it was cool...and before it was cool again.

About the year 2000, my wife bought my first "real" rifle for me - a Herter's Model J9 in .308, manufactured by Zastava in Yugoslavia.

Now, 17 years later, she has bought a second rifle for me - also a Herter's. This is a Model U9 in .22/250, the action looks to have been manufactured by FN in Belgium and it was finished in England...I'm still learning the history on this one a bit, but I believe by BSA.

The two could nearly be a matched pair, in spite of the subtle differences. The rifle comes from a good friend of mine in Tennessee, and I am committed to giving it a good home.

Anyway, after the purchase of my first rifle, I found myself quite interested in the Herter's brand, and did quite a bit of reading up on it, as I could. I read a few of George Herter's books, and thumbed through the outrageous catalogs. I bought a few odd Herter's products here and there as I could find them, and also received many as gifts from friends.

Today, I came across this article, and figured I would pass it along.

Follow the link....

Herter's catalog is long gone, but not forgotten
