The .22 rifle this picture bove is a Remington 550-1...this gun is very interesting to because a friend of mine gave me one yesterday which was surfaced rusted and light pitting .It shoots shorts, longs, and long rifle, and cashoot the nes subsonic rounds..so I got to know the barrel and tubular magazine very well today as I cleaned it and getting ready to Wonder blue it....it has a walnut stock also..

no! look up Remington 550-1....underneath the barrel is the ammo tube...look at the knurling of the tube magazine at the end the pic you showed has it...look at the band in your picture also...the tube and the band is the exactly like one I have

A couple of things are distinguishing about the rifle you are looking for if it is as the picture of the one leaning on the railing:

The magazine tube is very nearly as long as the barrel but is supported well back from the muzzle with a high quality dovetail bracket. You should be able to scale the muzzle overhang to the distance from the bracket to the end of the magazine tube.

The knurling on the magazine rod is quite pronounced and rather coarse judging be the apparent ease with which it picked up some paint on a fence or something.

The front sight has no provisions for a hood, so you should be able to eliminate quite a few rifles of the carbine variety.

Were you to go to a gun show and do a walk through during a slow afternoon, you just might see something very close if not exactly matching your photo.

I suspect that you're looking for a semi-automatic, which is what you have found as the closest matches to your memory but have the wrong front sight. I believe you specified that 22 LR was the cartridge, which would fit some semi-autos that wouldn't handle shorts or longs.

On those presumptions, I would suggest you look at the Savage, Savage/Stevens line such as the Savage Model 88, the Stevens Model 87 or the Savage/Stevens Model 88. These three semi-autos have magazine tubes very close to the muzzle, support brackets well behind the end of the tube and blade front sights and were widely available.


At the risk of sounding like a smart _ _ _, I might suggest that if neither your dad nor you remember the brand, model or features, you might just buy him something you think he'd like. In any event, I applaud your efforts in finding a match, and I hope you are successful.

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!

Judging from the way the magazine tube is attached to the barrel, I can say it's NOT a later winchester .22, such as a 190, 250, 270, or a 290.I think the clue will be how that mag attaches to the barrel...Also, all the winchester .22's I've mentioned are either semi, pump, or lever action, not bolt.

Guys, the provided photo is not the gun, it's what he thinks the gun was.

Way too many variables here!

Seems to me you arent going to get much help, or find what you're looking for with this information.


Go buy your dad a nice new .22, or a used one that's similar. You cant make up for thesentimental value lost, but atleast you can return a gun.

Or....get it back from the person you gave it to?
