Default Old 22 Firearms, Lets Post Them

I posted the old Savage I just bought, I'm sure lots of you have some really nice old rimfire rifles.
Please post them for all to see.
If you think about it, most of the modern rifles, pistols and revolvers we have today are based on many of the designs from 50 to 100 years ago.

I for one love the craftsmanship in the old firearms.The gunsmiths of old just had crude lathes and mills and did a lot of the fitting and making of parts to make the old firearms using files and stones.
Much of the work done on them, the old methods are no longer used, but the Gunsmiths who made these old guns had so much talent. The craftsmanship was nothing shot of amazing.

If you have an old firearm, please post it for all to see. Many younsters have never even seen, let alone handled a firearm make in the 1930's 40's or even earlier.

My old Savage shot a 5 shot group of .376" @ 50 yards. The shooting conditions were some of the worst I have shot in.
I have no doubt it will shoot even tighter groups.
Many newer 22's won't shoot groups that tight. I've been told my gun was made in 1917. It amazes me it shoots as well as it does, but why shouldn't it, the firearm was made by some of the most talented Gunsmiths that ever lived.

Come on guys, lets see em

My Best, John K

Here's a Remington Field Master Model 121. It was made somewhere between the late 40's to mid 50's. I found one on gunbroker that had a much higher serial that was supposed to be made in 47. It don't matter too much to me. It looks damn near new and It shoots like a dream.

It'll chuck brass like nothing I've ever seen. I'm talking like over 10 feet and sometimes as far as 15-18' I hit the caps off water bottles at 50 yards with it. So I'll say ti works quite well. I have an AMT Lightning that was my fav rim fire for a while but this one is just too beautiful and will shoot as well as any 22 I've owned. I've shot bench guns that where not any better at 50 yds. At 100 it will still group under 2" with my poor shooting when not leaned out on something to steady myself.

Unfortunately, I don't have a pic, but my dad has a nice old Remington 33 in pristine condition. I fired it a bit back in January when I brough tmy 10-22 over for some shooting. I almost preferred the Remington!

January 1942 Remington 512:

Both guns have been in my family since they were new. My Dad gave me the Rem. 512 when I was 10 y.o. for my first firearm. Many squirrels and rabbits have been served for dinner because of these guns.

Fantastic, I love the Remingtons and those Mossys are beautiful.
What is fantastic is how accurate the old guns are. I don't know if it's the metal they used along with rifling being done with such quality or what, but they sure do shoot well.
You guys should be proud of those guns.
The two kids who will be getting those Mossbergs are really lucky, many kids will get a new rifle, but nothing like what is waiting for them, those Mossbergs with the target sights and the old scopes will teach them good shooting habits. They will be the envey of the other kids.

I wish sometimes I could go back and have got my son into compitition shooting. We shot togather, but I would have liked to have really seen him get into the shooting in a more serious way. He liked old cars, and you can't force them, but those two kids who are going to get the mossys are very lucky.

Keep thos old rifles posted, I love looking at them as I'm sure many others do.
You will never see quality mass produced guns like those again.
Those Rems are fantastic, look at the wood on them, fantastic !

Thanks Guys, John K

Marlin/Glennfield Model 80 with it's factory installed scope, my great grandfather bought it new.

dsc_0277.jpg

I've also got 1/2 of a Remington 41 Targetmaster....it needs a bolt. Sorry, no picture.

When I get a chance I'll take some pictures of a single shot 22 pistol that my Grandfather has. He got it when his brother passed away and I believe it belonged to their grandfather so it would be my great, great grandfather. I think they were produced around 1860-1870. It's a break action but it opens to the side.

Vey nice rifles and revolvers.
I love the old Win target models, they just don't make them like they used to.

Anyone who has one or more of these old rifles should consider themselves very lucky, anyone can buy one of the new one's, but the quality and fit of the old rifles is a thing of the past.
Not to say the new rifes are not good, many are very good as far as shooting, but the beauty of the old rifles have been lost.

My Best, John K
