Does anyone recognize this .22 rifle?
 
I am 99% sure this is the rifle I am looking for, but I can not find it anywhere.

If this is the rifle, it is a .22 LR, bolt action.

It had a wood stock, tubular magazine.

If anyone recognizes this gun, please let me know what it is.

I know there is not much to go on here, but this is the only picture I could find that matched the gun as I remember it.

Thanks!

Lets see...Savage, Stevens, Springfield, Mossberg, Ted Williams, Western Field, Remington, Winchester, Marlin, Glenfield, etc. Tube fed .22 bolt action rifles are so numerous such a description is like saying you are looking for a white car with 4 tires.

I don't want to sound rude, but there is no way to get any more specific than that. Wild goose chase would be the understatement of the year.

You can scratch newer marlins off the list-they have brass inner mag tubes.

Updated Information about the .22 I am looking for
 
Here is everything I can remember about the gun.

Why I want to find it: This was my dads gun and a shell exploded and cracked the stock below the barrel. I had someone try to fix it, but they never returned it. I would like to replace the gun for my dad.

I thought it was a Remington, but couldn't find any matching photos.

The sight at the end of the barrel is exactly like the one in the picture. It is not adjustable and is permanently fixed to the barrel.

There were no patterns or grooves cut in the stock. It was smooth and had a dark cherry finish. There were two attachment points for a sling.

My best guess for the year of the gun would be a 60's or early 70's model.

The butt of the stock was black rubber/plastic with white accent line and was removable with two screws.

The inner tube of the magazine may have been brass, but was only visible after pulling unlocking and extending the "cover?".

The look of the gun was extremely similar to this marlin:

But I have not found a picture of this model with the same front sight as the one I had. I also believe the safety was different on my gun, but I do not remember enough to say what it was.

The picture I posted originally was the closest thing I could find that accurately matched the memory I had of the gun. I searched many pics to find who where every aspect of what I saw matched.

Thanks for any help...and I know it's like finding a needle in a haystack, but I've spent hours searching on my own and have been unsuccessful.

Another update
 
Also, If I remember correctly, this rifle only shot .22LR.

Thanks for the response, I know it's going to be tough, and I was hoping someone may recognize the picture. The two main factors in this pic are the length of the tubular mag and the type of front sight. Both were nearly exactly what I remember. No other pic I have seen of .22 rifles have had a (almost) full length magazine under the barrel and a fixed front site like that. I did another post with more info that I could remember and a pic of a marlin that is very similar....in fact, if I could find that marlin with a front site like the one in the pic, I would have thought it was the gun.

I believe it was 60's or early 70's model.

Thanks again for any help you can provide.

That still narrows it down to ?

who did you know that owned the rifle?

maybe they could tell you?

maybe someone you know has some pictures of it?

foreclosurefish 01-21-2010 08:57 PM

I posted more, but I don't think its live yet, because I added a pic. If it doesn't show up soon, I'll post again, but without the pic.
