Here's a few:
1. Marlin 81DL. My first rifle, dating from about 1946. Can't estimate how many bricks i's fired over the years.
2. Springfield M2 and Remington 513T, both tack drivers. I shot a Springfiel 22 on the ROTC rifle team, 50 feet, indoors, 4 position. It taught me how to shoot a target rifle
3. Winder Musket. This one in 22 short, although they came in 22 LR too.
4. Action open on the Winder Musket.
5. Top is a French Scholar's Rifle, for military training in secondary schools after the War of 1870. Not exacly a 22: it's in 6mm Bosquette, but shoots 22 shorts after a fashion. The bottom one is a Ross single shot, 22 caliber, straight pull militay training rifle. It's stamped with many units that has it on their books.

As much as I like the Marlin 39A, I think that realistically I will need to get the Henry for a rimfire lever action. I would probably buy most of the bolt actions posted here for their looks.

My father bought my 39A in about 1952. Might have been '51. I wouldn't trade it for a new Henry even if there were no family connection. Now, if I were buying current production, the Henry would likely get the nod. I'd really like to have one of their .357's, but dang they are heavy. I keep my eye out for an old Marlin.

Here's one you will not see every day. It's a Ruger 77/22 RSP made in 1990. The 77/22 has rear locking lugs and has a very fast lock time. This particular model combines the composite stock of the stainless guns with a blued receiver and barrel, which I prefer in the field. It will accept 77/22 or 10/22 rotary mags, and the banana magazines made for the 10/22. Its 20" barrel gets the most out of hi-speed 22LR rounds.

Not liking the 1" dangly swivels it was equipped with, I substituted 1.25" QD swivels - these fit my preferred GI sling arrangement.

I'm not sure if this variation is made any more. I picked it from a large batch being sold at a large gun show in June of 1990 as the one having the best trigger pull. Great gun, and extremely accurate.

It would be hard for me to nail down a favorite .22LR rifle. I just looked in my vault for a quick look and counted nine .22LR rifles.

The flavor of the month right now are my two Ruger 10/22's. The one on the left is my new 10/22 Takedown LITE and it is so much fun to shoot. The one on the right is my 30+ year old 10/22 that just went through a major overhaul including a new 16 inch steel threaded target bull barrel and all new trigger guts in the original aluminum trigger housing. With sub-sonic rounds both of these are my go to Silent 'Possum Slayers for varmints that slink around the hen house at night.

Rick,

I know the manager of a nice shop nearby which had two 39s the last time I was in. They weren't the real old ones, but I'm virtually certain they weren't the newer ones about which everyone complains. Both were in nice shape and, as I recall, were priced between five and six hundred dollars. If you want I'll give him a call Monday and see if he still has them and if he sells online. Let me know.

Regards,
Andy

Andy, thanks, very tempting in this case, but I do not buy what I cannot hold first. It cannot hurt to ask though if you want to. Some more good looking rifles, keep them coming, please! Thanks!

Although I'm an avowed pistolero, even I recognize that one .22 rifle is not enough. For plinking, I have my grandfather's old Remington Sportsman 341. It's an oldie, but a goody, easily ridding the world of English Sparrows at 50 yards with regularity. Next, for more serious work is my father's Winchester Model 75. Another oldie, complete with a 10x Unertl scope, it very accurate and has accounted for scores of the little plastic green army men at 100 yards. My tack driver (literally) is my Savage/Anschutz Match 64, with which I can shoot the staples or tacks holding the targets off at 50 yards. I believe with the proper person behind the trigger (not me, I'm a pistolero remember), I believe it would put every shot in the X ring at 50 yards with the proper ammo, no problem.

Now if you ever want to talk about hand guns, I'm currently at 11, including the .22 barrel for either of my TC Contenders.

New Henry lever action carbine ($300) I gave up on the m39.
Late 1800 single shot 22 rifles, early 1900 single shot and pump 22 rifles.
Savage, western field, Remington, Winchester 1890, Hopkins & Allan, ect, so many great buys out there like the Stevens. They all belong to the grandson.

Not sure it fits the rifle category, but I have a couple Anschutz Exemplars, as well as a couple knock off Exemplars. I just saw an Exemplar sell on another forum for $650 and I'm still trying to remove my foot from my rear-end for not seeing that one sooner!

I have some other 22 rifles: Remington Voelker 541-T - still not sure why I bought that, but it's nice, haven't fired it. Savage American Classic, ditto. Some Remington 581s. CZ trainer, then there as the whole, 17 Mach 2 craze I went through.

I have the Thompson Classic in both 22 LR and 17 Mach 2. These guns are similar to the Ruger 1022, but superior in quality (IMO) and superior in accuracy - in everyone's opinion ; ) They aren't anywhere near the 1022 when it comes to the ability to customize, but when you can shoot gnats out of the box what else are you looking to do? I guess you could call them boringly accurate.

I'm going to host a table at an upcoming gunshow and unload some of my long guns. I just don't get out with them and it's time to cull the dwindling herd.

As far as the rest of ya... it's embarassin' for me to post pics of my few, piddly .22's. Wow... this thread has been a real pleasure to read... really, really nice firearms... I applaud all of you for sharing.

But... here's mine... four out of six, insurance pics. The two that I don't have here... a Rem 541S... my horse-ridin' rabbit gun. And an Remington Nylon 66 (Apache Brown)... my Dad's final squirrel rifle.

Here are the other's...

My first 10/22... I keep it simple with iron sights... a great plinker... always carry it on my tractor with me...



My squirrel gun. A Rem 541T... with Leupold 14X fixed scope. We hunt squirrel's for meat... off of horseback... and have a friendly competition while doin' it. The winner is the one with the most through-the-eye shots. (I have won that competition two out of the past six seasons.) There are usually ten or more of us... and we cover a lot of territory in a morning (we generally hunt on 300 acre tracks, or better, with permission). FYI... the morning-after ('cause we got to clean 'em in the afternoon)... the breakfast-meals cooked-up by the wimmen... are out of this world. Fried squirrel, fresh sliced tomatoes, squirrel gravy, big cat-head bisquits, fried potatos...



A Volquartsen Custom .22LR... blackened stainless... McMillan thumbhole stock. It now sports an Aimpoint 2MOA T-1...



I bought this 10/22 takedown as a truck bug-out. Keep handgun, knife and ammo with me at all times. (This insurance pic taken the day I got it... still has the tags on it...)



Man needs plenty of ammo... and since I shoot a lot of .22LR... here is my preferred brand... CCI Mini-mags. Just a few rounds that I keep stored...



You know... I have been asked... "Why would you disclose that ammo and guns?"

It's because I am no longer scared of confiscation. If my ammo is confiscated... that means I will be gone, beforehand.
HR
May I ask where do you get that ammo? I could use a box Thanks

Here's my lever action .22's. (Not the top one, that's a .357, but it's the only pic I have right now).
Middle one is Marlin 39A Original Golden, bottom is obviously a Henry Golden Boy.
I have Skinner peep sights on both .22's. Maybe also on the .357, I'd have to look! I don't get it out near enough.


Here's my wife's Smith 15-22 with a .223 suppressor, replaced shortly after with a dedicated .22 suppressor.

HR Thanks for the reply. I would love to buy 5k at a time lol.. But .22 are popping up alot more lately, I have been gettin 500/700 at a clip when I see them,, I am all most out down to 2k rounds :O , But I agree we do not know what the future will bring, So I will be trying to get 22/3k more this year. Thanks again

Yes, I agree with you guys, and while we can reload our centerfires over and over, what rimfire ammo we have is all we may depend on getting if push comes to shove. Once we shoot it, it's gone. I don't shoot a lot of rimfire, but I have 6 or 7K squirreled away. Nothing like Hellraiser, though... Wow!

Best Regards, Les

I just got my weekly email from TargetsportsUSA.com, they have 5000 rounds of Geco .22lr at 10 cents a round. OMG, when Targetsports has third rate .22.r at a dime a round, it's pretty desperate. Free shipping...big woo!
Glad I have some stash.

Until recently I owned a large .22 rifle collection, a change of job and a need for cash forced me to sell off my eye candy shooters and keep the affordable tack drivers.

Rifles which went to new homes included a beautiful Remington 521T Junior Scoremaster, Remington 541T HB, Winchester 94/22, CZ-452 Training Rifle (most accurate of the whole bunch), Browning T-Bolt, Marlin 39A (most fired, however it had become a safe dweller), Ruger 10/22 standard, and a Henry. The least accurate by far was the pretty little Winchester.

By now, you probably wonder what I kept. Well, three Marlins made the cut, a 881 tube fed, poly stock bolt model, a J.C. Higgins branded (44DL) version of the late, great model 57 Speedmaster lever action and the single best shooting rifle of any kind I've ever owned, a first year of manufacture 880 SQ Squirrel Rifle. Yeah, the SQ is butt ugly, however it will put almost any good standard velocity ammo into tiny little groups at 50 yards.
The other two rifles I kept are Lipsey's exclusive Ruger 10/22's. One is a slim profile sported with a Schnable tip stock, the other a medium heavy 22 inch barrel walnut stock target spotter. I replaced the trigger groups in both 10/22's which made them into seriously accurate little semi autos.

It sounds like you tweaked the heck out of what you had. Good for you.
However, the thought of getting rid of my 39A is frightening. But, then, I don't have the other Marlins you speak of. I believe that is the difference.
I haven't been able to make myself invest in a 10/22 yet. I know, I know...it will happen, eventually. But I know I will have to tweak the heck out of it!

Geco, Gustav Genschow & Co is around since 1887 and it is pretty ignorant to consider them
third rate, they are owned by Dynamit Nobel/RUAG, who also owns RWS and are either made in Germany or Hungary.

The 39A was my first "more expensive" .22. I ordered it and was unfortunate to get one with a very nondescript walnut stock and no checkering. I put at least 50k rounds through it in the '80's and 90's. Still showed no real wear. If I had a child to pass it down to, I'd have kept it.
Ruger 10/22's, well I've owned five over the years. Two were configured with all the tacticool toys and I made one into a mini clone of a ranch rifle. Got bored with the silly toys and sold them to friends. I will keep the pair I have now. My wife owns the Schnable stock version. People who see it are surprised it is a 10/22.

You just beat me to it! Yes, the Geco company has a long and distinguished history. They may not have been well known in the US, but they have been making ammo for a very long time, and their products are considered very good.

The only blot on their history is not their fault, either. The cartrige cases found at the Kaytn Forest massacre, where Polish Officers were killed, were Geco branded. Many historians believe that this was done by the NKVD, however, and they used German ammunition to deceive the world opinion into believing that the Germans committed the executions.

This is certainly not the fault of the company that made the ammunition, though, but someone might bring it up, and to be truthful, it popped into my head when I read the above posts.

Best Regards, Les

I appear to be accumulating .22's. At least I have a problem passing up the odd & unusual ones. The Serbian C99 is my favorite field .22 & the Custom 10/22 is now a bench queen. Don't know if it counts but, I also have a Savage Model 24 that's .22lr over .410, that's my current project gun.
Here's a few of the most used.

Lucked on to this one -
Marlin 39A Golden (recently scoped w/Leupold 2-7x28)


Browning/Midori AS-22


MAS-45


Custom 10/22


CZ-452 Special (scope removed, VG stock sights)


Charles Daly/Serbian C99

My Stevens M56 shoots the Geco Rifle 22's equal or better than The Eley Tenex at 1/4 the price. I have had four five shot groups average around .219 inches at 25 yards.
If I had a little extra jingle in my pocket I'd be all over them at that price.

I was relating my experience with Geco 9mm ammo. I have not tried their .22lr. I found their 9mm to be acceptable plinking ammo, but not superior. Their ammo comes from factories in various countries, and I've found that the quality varies from factory to factory. With all the glowing evaluations of threir .22lr, I'll have to give them a shot.

If we are talking accuracy, then this is the .22 I will put up against any other. At 50 yards, it will routinely shoot cloverleaf groups.

This is the famed Winchester Model 75 Sporter. While many talk about the Model 52 Sporter, this one is a lot lighter for field work, and is fully the equal of its big brother as far as accuracy is concerned. The chamber and the rifling are exclusively for .22 LR, and the bolt is hand-headspaced and marked with the serial number. These are rare today, and I was very happy to find this one before it came on the floor at a gun show back in 2003. I did some of my best negotiating to obtain it.

I call it my "flea flicker" for being probably able to flick a flea off a dog's posterior! My only modifications have been to lighten the trigger pull to about 3 pounds and limit the trigger overtravel with a trigger shoe.

It will go toe to toe with any other .22 on the planet for placing precision shots, and is one of my personal favorites.

Thank you for your assistance, I bought my first 22 rifle last night, the Henry Model H001. Not a pretty as the Golden Boy, but as capable.



Next will be a Ruger 10/22. I like the woodsocks, but I also like the chrome (?) barrel. Any expertise on the difference between the models of Ruger 10/22 are welcome.

Took my new Henry to the range. It was great shooting .22 lr out of that gun.

I have not seen any of those nice looking bolt action 22s around, but much of the fun is in the hunt. Thank you.

I have developed a taste for bull barrel target guns, but ones that have a somewhat normal stock. I have a Remington 40XB that I love. I put a 40X scope on it. I can go to the range with less than 100 rounds and be tired by the time I'm through them. Appreciate every shot. I have a yearning for a CZ455 Varmint.

By the way, I will rant that I am tired of watching German guns and German .22 ammo out performing American stuff. Disgraceful. Nothing against the German products, but we are the shooting nation, the gun nation. Our companies need to rectify this.

A left handed one, too! Very pretty. I have the right handed version and have no complaints about the accuracy with CCI Green Tab.

Default J.C. Higgins 44DL-AKA Marlin Model 57 LeverMatic

There are quite a few great .22 lever action rifles, the Winchester 94/22, Browning BL-22, Marlin 39A, the Henry .22 however none of those can boast the 22 degree lever throw of the late, great Marlin 'LeverMatic' models 56 (box mag) and 57 (tube mag).
These overbuilt, adult size and weight rifles were eventually chambered the .22 WMR, .356 Winchester and .30 Carbine. The centerfire versions are rare and very expensive as the standard .22 LR models are fetching $350 to $550 when they pop up online.

Several years ago, I happened upon a rather homely looking example of this fine rifle in the form of the J.C. Higgins Model 44DL at my favorite gun store. The finish was peeling from the walnut stock like skin after a bad sunburn. The rear sight was damaged and the bluing looked a bit splotchy. Her action was slick and the bore looked fine so I asked for his best deal on the gun. $115 out the door, tax and all.
One trip to the range was all it took for me to realize the Levermatic is a keeper. Typical Marlin accuracy with blazing lever speed, nearly as fast as my 10/22 since you just flick the lever with you bottom two fingers. A good detailing of the metal and strip/oil refinish of the stock was definitely in order.
The finished rifle is pictured below. Forgive the ugly scope mounts.

Ahhhhh, those were the days, when we could walk into Sears and buy a nice rifle. I had a Winchester 94 when I was young, (still have it), but I remember going to Sears with a buddy who bought the Sears version of the same rifle. I can't remember, but I think it was made by Winchester, but marked Ted Williams or J. C. Higgins one or the other.

Those were certainly the days, and I applaud your very nice .22 version.

Best Regards, Les

I like my 10/22, though not a huge fan of the zinc receiver and plastic bits. Someday I'll build one up with better materials.

Highly recommend the Rimfire Technologies charging handle/mag release kit.

This is outstanding .22 porn in this thread. I tend to go old school in my rimfire choices and I still prefer bolt action and relatively slower shooting. While I too will sing the praises of the CZ-452 line, do not overlook the Savage Mark II G series. For about $200 you can get into a drilled and tapped wooden stock accurate bolt action with a free floating barrel. The G series also comes with Savage's patented Accu-Trigger, which easily allows (and encourages) the novice layman to safely set their own trigger pull weight anywhere from 1.5 to 6 pounds. Both the CZ-452 and the Savage Mark II G bolt action rifles are offered in left handed versions for all us wrongsiders.

I love my Henry Golden Boy. Not only is it a great shooter, smooth as glass, but it's a looker to boot! Also, I can shoot anything from high velocity hollowpoints to CBs and BBs for use in my back yard.

This particular model combines the composite stock of the stainless guns with a blued receiver and barrel, which I prefer in the field. It will accept 77/22 or 10/22 rotary mags, and the banana magazines made for the 10/22. Its 20" barrel gets the most out of hi-speed 22LR rounds.

Not liking the 1" dangly swivels it was equipped with, I substituted 1.25" QD swivels - these fit my preferred GI sling arrangement.

I'm not sure if this variation is made any more. I picked it from a large batch being sold at a large gun show in June of 1990 as the one having the best trigger pull. Great gun, and extremely accurate.

John

I'm not usually a composite stock fan, John, but that is one sleek outfit. I think it looks tremendous just like it is.

As far as my sense of esthetics goes, I think the Ruger International model (full-length Mannlicher-style stock) is far and away the most elegant of the bunch. This one has an absolutely beautiful stock with a polyurethane finish, and was a special run for TALO distributors in 1995. It was produced in November of that year.

To tell the truth, I was worried about accuracy, because the bedding of that full-length stock would be absolutely critical. I should not have been worried. The target pictured with the gun was fired from a rest (my shooting bag) at 25 yards, rapid fire with Remington Golden high-speed hollow point ammo.

Zastava CZ99 Bolt Action Rifle, 22LR, 22'' Barrel, Yugo Import By CAI, New.
I like my CZ 453 American and CZ 453 Varmint a lot, but they were both $450 rifles. In comparison, the CZ 99 Precision (the "other" CZ, made by Zastava) is an excellent bang for the buck - probably the least expensive good shooting adult sized .22LR I've ever found.







Remington imported them for quite awhile with a laminated stock as the Remington Model 5, and this particular CZ 99 Precision has a laminated stock from a Remington Model 5 on it. I got the stock when Stocky's sent me a Model 5 stock rather than a Model 799 stock (for a Zastava M85 Mini Mauser) I'd ordered, and just told me to keep it since they never knew they had one (they bought all the new old stock Rem 798 and Rem, 799 stocks from Remington when they cleared them out, and they apparently got a Model 5 stock mixed in with them). Since I had a nice stock for it, I went looking for a CZ 99 Precision and got one for $199 new in one of the local gun shops.

The CZ 99 Precision receivers are thick walled and very stiff, giving the rifle very good accuracy potential - not CZ 452/453 accuracy, but still very good - on the order of 1.5" to 1.75" 5 shot groups at 100 yards with SK Standard Plus ammo. It would no doubt do better with a higher end match ammo that it liked as some shooters have reported 1/2" 50 yard accuracy their CZ99s, but 1.5" at 100 yards and 4" or so at 200 yards has been plenty good enough for the field and 100-200 yard steel plate shooting I do with it.








The metal polish and blue on the CZ 99 Precision is very nicely done, however, the stocks on the current CAI imported CZ 99 Precision rifles have a rather flat finish and the checkering pattern has a partly unfinished appearance. That's a trait shared by the CAI imported Zastava M70 Mauser and M85 Mini-Mauser rifles as well, and reflects CAI's specs rather than Zastava quality overall.

In addition to being sold as the CZ 99 Precision, the rifle has also been imported and marketed as the Remington Model 5, the Zastava MP22, the USSG Z5, and the Charles Daly Superior II - all were basically the same rifle, but with different stocks.

However, the CZ 99 Precision's stock cleans up well and a few coats of Tru-oil on top of the original finish gives them a much more finished look, and you can knock the gloss finish of the Tru-oil down to a nice semi-gloss or satin finish with 0000 steel wool and then a rubbing compound. If you have the tools and a little practice, you can also finish the cut checkering.

I went straight to the Model 5 stock with mine, but below is a picture of a Remington 799 (right) and a Zastava M85 (left), both in .22 Hornet, showing the Zastava stock after a few coats of Tru-oil and some rubbing compound. The CZ 99 Precision stock lacks the rollover comb, but the finish and lines are otherwise similar, as is the end result with just a little sweat equity:



Now...the semi-bad news is that my CZ 99 Precision was by no means perfect as the left and right side extractors were identical with both being sharply hooked. The end result was that it did not want to eject the spent case.

It was however a simple fix as I just had to take a file and re-profile the left hand extractor a bit to shorten and round the sharp point on the hook so that it would release the case when it contacted the ejector. Once that small bit of metal work was done, it functioned like a champ.

John,
Your choice of a 75 Sporter is a good one, I have shot one, and the othet rifles that you compared it to, but I only wish we lived close, so that I could let you run a fiew rounds through one of my Anchutz 54 1410 match rifles, or a 54 Sporter, or even my Cooper Mod. 36 Classic, for a little wider field of comparison. It sounds like you are really satisfied, and impressed with your 75 Sporter, so it probably would not sway your opinion at all. Good choice!

My "favorite" .22 rifle has to be my Model 62A. It is just like the one my old man used during the 30's and 40's to feed the family. He would go hunting with it and come home with a trunk full of anything he could get. Mom would figure a way to prepare whatever he had!!




When he died in 1991 I found out he had sold it years before. So I went on a quest to find one just like it. Mine is a 1946 model.

I have many .22 rifles but this is my Favorite one.

Road Rat,
I admire your choice of .22 rim fire rifle. Many years ago I set out to acquire one of every model .22 hunting rifles that Winchester made, and got most of the ones that I truly admired. back then if you had a Mod. 97 shotgun the Mod. 62 rifle, was the companion to it. The style, and actions being exactly alike no change of shooting style was required, when using one or the other.The 62 is one of the few that I never acquired, as The mod. 97 shotgun that I have came along a lot later in my life. It was promised to me when I was around three years old, by my favorite uncle. Because of it I learned to spell my first word, Gun. My uncle, said that when I became 21 yrs. old the 97 was mine. Well, by that time I had acquired my own shotgun, a mod. 12 Winchester 20 ga. , and a mod. 61 Winchester rifle, as it's companion .22 rifle. When I became 21 yrs. old my uncle was still an active hunter, that I hunted with regularly, and I told him to use the mod. 97 as long as he still hunted. When he passed away, my aunt could not bear to part with the mod. 97, and I didn't get the gun until she passed away many years later. I still have that old well used mod. 97, used by many family members. I never did acquire a mod. 62 rifle as a companion to this old favorite shotgun, something that I really regret, now that I'm to old to do it. Pardon the long winded, true story. It brought back many old memories from around 1933.

I also have a model 62A, manufactured in March, 1946. Interestingly, the buttplate is grooved steel - it came from an inventory of Model 55 buttplates that Winchester was "cleaning up," as was often their postwar practice, using leftover parts as much as practical.

The current issue (Sept 2016) of the Blue Press features an article I wrote on the Model 62. I'm pretty sure Dillon would send you a copy and get you on the mailing list if you call them at 1-800-223-4570.
