Hairtrigger,
you have been able to acquire a couple .22 rifles that I really wanted, over the years, but never acquired. the Browning in this picture is one, and the little gold embellished falling block rifle shown also. Can't even remember the brand of it now, but a obscure little gun store in northern Ohio had one at one time, and I made several trips there from central Ohio to look at, fondle, and try to justify buying it. I kept the trips up until the shop had sold it. I'v been sorry I didn't buy it ever since.

Default Walnut & Steel

http://smith-wessonforum.com/attachm...1&d=1472224190
Here are my walnut & steel Rifles. Made to use every day, and then pass on down through, two or three generations that with proper care, will never wear them out. That is true if you are fortunate to have a next generation that wants them, or believes that we should be permitted to own them. Thanks for sharing.

Here are the .22 rifles that I have, that bring big smiles to my face every time I see, handle, or shoot them. I only wish I was able to pass them on to family that would enjoy them for what they are.

Default Personalized .22 rifles

http://smith-wessonforum.com/attachm...1&d=1472226092
Here are some .22 rifles that I customized. The little Remington youth rifle that belonged to my deceased Son, that a dope head, and peddler killed on his motorcycle. The size fit my Wife's size, and proportions so I customized it, but, she didn't want it, and wanted the customized Marlin 39 Mounty shown that I made into a Scout rifle, a rage at the time. The Ruger 10/22 shown is a highly modified action, and wears a Fagen thumbhole stock, that fits, and suits me to a T. Again no one that cares, to pass them down to. Thanks for sharing them with me.

Default .22 Target Rifles

ahttp://smith-wessonforum.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=248248&stc=1&d=1472240893
I now own the two Anschutz 54 action, mod.1410 Target rifles that belonged to my two Sons. I inherited one when my youngest Son passed away, and bought the other rifle from the oldest Son, when he needed money for more important things. I'v installed scopes on them, but still have the complete set of iron sights that came with them. The same as the other rifles, no one will appreciate them when I'm done with them.

Photo 1: top: French MAS 45 training rifle. Actually a late war Mauser design taken over by the French. A real tack driver. Bottom: Berthier 8mm M 16 carbine modified in the 1930s for Balle N, then transformed into a single shot 22 caliber training rifle.

I have always been a Browning fan I have a Belgium made TBolt that had salt wood and had rust before discovered, reblued and new wood adds to the character, it shoots very well
Here is a Wall of my Browning family pic

Top is A-Bolt then a Model 52 next a BLR with a 1968 SN, production started 1969 below it is a BAR then t-Bolt from Belgium then a BPR. I do have a SA but it was not in this pic
The bottom one here is odd

Default BAR?

Hairtrigger,
That unnamed rifle on the bottom Two rifles, also looks like a BAR, but the action is a little bit different shaped. I am not up to date on the Browning .22 BAR, but They are on my wish list, along with the T-Bolt. Don't suppose I'll ever get to fill that order. Nice batch of .22 LR rifles.

Ky wonder,
A Mossberg target rifle similar to yours was the second rifle that I ever owned, around 75 yrs. ago. I had earned, and saved the money to buy it, and the store was out of town, my mother went with me on a bus, to buy it. I removed the large pivoting peep sight, and had an inexpensive weaver scope installed. I still have that large peep sight, stored away in my gun stuff. It proved to be a very accurate shooter, but, way to large, and heavy for me at around nine yrs. old, I was used to a small light rifle that was easy to carry in the field, and could only afford one rifle, so, it went the way of so many good old guns. Thanks for letting me share an old, long winded, true story.

Where do you find all those nice wooden stock bolt action rifles? All I have been able to find is the CZ99 which I have been warned from buying.

I own a CZ99, and like @BB57 mentioned, there's a good chance you might have to do some work to it in order to get it running smoothly. Only had to polish the chamber and tweak the magazines, but I also refinished the stock. I like to tinker a bit, so it didn't really bother me. Especially considering the $169 price tag for an all metal and wood rifle (with the exception of the buttplate) with excellent blueing, a nice walnut stock and an adjustable trigger.





Here are a few of my other 22's...

Obligatory 10/22


Mossberg 44US (my personal favorite)


Mossberg Model 35


Two semi-auto restoration/rescue efforts. A Mossberg 151M(a) and a 151K.

I was shipping some to a friend and took them to my local dealer who was going to ship them for him, they were very popular with visitors to the store until he put them away.

If you want something more modern with an increasing amount of aftermarket support, you might consider the Ruger American Rimfire. They take regular 10/22 mags. I think they go for about $350 (cheaper with the plastic stocks). Pretty sure it'll work well right out of the box.

[QUOTE=Ed Fowler;139132863]My last purchase, Remington #4 Rolling Block. Identical to my first 22 rifle given me by my grandfather when I was about age 10, except with much better sights, a lined barrel and trigger that has been worked on by a true pro. She is light, handy and shoots with my best target rifles but I have to do my part. Picked her up at this springs gun show for $350. Someone had her built and never shot her. Now she gets shot almost every day.
...There you go I know about shooting from a Remington model 4 rolling block 22 lr mine was made in the later part of the 1800s. wonderful guns.

My much loved Marlin 880SQ heavy barrel .22 LR in its latest form with Hunter green stock, Rifle Basix trigger, CenterPoint 4-12X40 AO IR scope in Millett Angle Loc mounts with a UTG bipod and Midway cheek rest. I can't wait to get to the range and try out the Rifle Basix trigger. The rifle shot .400-.600 five shot groups at 50 yards with a creepy 5LB trigger, I should be able to do better with a crisp 2.5LB trigger. I bought the rifle used at a gun show in 1998 for just $115 and I wouldn't sell it for $500 now.

This is my dad's Winchester Model 67 single shot .22 rifle. When I was less than 3 months old, my mother gave my dad this rifle for Christmas, 1946.

I hadn't shot it in over a year and a month or so back, I took it to the range for some plinking. Just to make sure it was still shooting to point of aim, I set a target up at 25 yards. I lined up the sights and took my first shot (please see photo below). Do you blame me for not taking another shot on that target?









I first learned to shoot on this rifle. Killed a whole lot of rabbits with it as a boy, teenager, and man. Dad gave me this rifle when I turned 16 years old. Do you think it's for sale?

Thanks for taking the time to look at "Dad's .22 Rifle"

God bless,
Birdgun

Many of those old rifles really shot well, was a time when accuracy and workmanship were in demand. Thanks for sharing!

I have really enjoyed this post. I will be on the look out for some of the great rifles that I first saw and then researched from this thread. My 22 rifle starter kit is below. Thanks again!

This is another thread that never seems to die. Whats not to like about a .22 rifle of any type? A couple Marlin Cowboys, a 1897 in .22 and a 1894 in .45 Colt. Accompanied by a few S&W's.

I have only one .22 Rifle now. Been through many, loved them all but the one I retained is my late Father in Laws Remington 513T MatchMaster.
Very accurate rifle even with iron sights.

I'm amazed at the number of Rem 66 lovers. While they were
dependable and low maintenance, I never found them to be
extremely accurate. The "action housing" is a sheet metal cover
containing the grooves for scope mounting. The action uses the
Nylon stock as a built in rail for bolt. I have never broken one
but have seen several with cracked stocks in action area. This
can't really be held against them because any rifle that had the
force necessary to do this would be seriously damaged also. I
don't own one at present, I use to keep one around for the kids
because of light weight. I will say it's tube feed was a lot better
than other similar priced 22s of the period. I put them in the
class of a dependable plinker.
