Default Sears and Roebuck model 43

I grew up shooting a J.C. Higgins Sears and Roebuck .22 bolt action tube feed. I also had some other .22 rifles like a Rem. 552, but the Sears was always the best shooter. I got that old .22 from my dad who's past away. Always kicked myself for selling it.

I've been gunless for a few years now. Had a few bucks so i stopped in this little gun store/pawn shop. Just wanting to p/u another little .22 to play around with. Nothing is really clicking as he hands me rifles, then he hands me this S&R 43. I was in love immediately. Brought back so many memories and from my experience they are a very good shooting .22 cal. This is not a J.C. Higgins like my original was.

So here it is anyways, nothing special compared to what a lot of folks have but they hold a special place with me for some reason. I love being able to fire S,L, and LR. This rifle is very tight and cycles extremely well, I don't think it was shot very much in it's life.

Looks nice
The DL (deluxe) version had a hooded front sight instead of a brass bead.

btw, that's also known as a Marlin model 81 if you ever need spare parts.

Thanks, yeah, I thought they were made by Marlin. Great to know I can get parts for it if I ever need to.

I gave $135 for it.
