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.??...

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,
jim

"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.
