Default Stevens Model 86C

Does anyone have any experience with this gun? I recently ran into a fair deal for one but didnt want to throw down the cash because I didnt know anything about it and have not heard that much.

Here is a link to one like it

stevens mod. 84c by savage 22 rifle : Bolt Action at GunBroker.com


Any help would be great!!

I had one these years ago, they can be amazeingly accurate.
at 20 yards I could off a bench make a ragged hole with .22shorts and stack them in one nest on the back stop it was accurate enough that others wanted to buy it.

These were decent "hunter grade" 22s. and a lot of fun. Recently picked up one of the 22 autos for chump change. Now the drawback- most have been out of production for some time, and parts are scarce. Never real high dollar collectables for the most part, but fun inexpensive shooters- what I think of as a working man's gun.

In the era these arms were mfg parts can be fabricated if you live off the grid & have some hand tools, fireing pins can come from a sicle section off a combine for flat ones or from a #5 machine bolt turn down on a power drill useing a file or 4" disk grinder for round ones. I find if they have stamped sheetmetal parts (extractors) its best to find a source and lay in a couple spares (store in cavity behind the butt plate, if no cavity make one)
i had the 84 for 10 years and traded off for a Rem pump .22 my best trade!
had a 81 Marlin bolt that was awesome as well. them old .22's were put together pretty good and were accurate for huntin.
