I wasn't aware of the "sling" feature in the 31......had to go dig mine out and take another look at the butt plate to see if I had overlooked something...
Here's a photo to prove the "short/long/long rifle" mix feature.....
Did "High Standard" make the "J. C. Higgins" for Sears, Roebuck and Co.??...

Here's a photo to prove the "short/long/long rifle" mix feature..shot it with the flash, so it's a little light......
Wow- That IS light

My Model 30 has the red nylon retractable sling too, and the cocking handle on the LEFT side in front of the bolt. Makes a good companion for my CETME, as it is left-side cocking too!
I had also refinished the stocks, as these old twentytwos are so often beat-up after thirty-forty years!
The old rifles will generally outshoot today's rifles. This old Model 30 and my Springfield 87A will both easily outshoot my 2001-produced Ruger 10-22 and Marlin 60SB!

What type of scope mounts did you use. I haven't been able to find any that fit the small grooved receiver?

thanks,

"What type of scope mounts did you use. I haven't been able to find any that fit the small grooved receiver?"

Those came with the scope as it was made just for a .22. Here's what you need if you want to use a 1" scope.
1 Sport Utility 22 Rimfire Airgun Rings Low Matte
Many companies make these in slightly different styles. The link above is just a sample.

Thanks for your response but the j.c. higgins has 5/16" dove tail and the 3/8" are too loose.
