It wouldent be fair to ask just about .22's so chime in if you got a favorite.

For the original price, you will never beat the Winchester Model 310.....a single shot, bolt action, modeled after the Winchester Model 70....pistol grip, checkered, sling brackets and accepts a scope. Mine had beautiful bluing and just great looking all around. It sat, alone, on its rack in a Woolco Dept. Store (long since gone out of business) in Richmond, Virginia and I would go there and look at it for several weeks before I purcased it. Afterwards I added the sling and a Tasco scope and thought it was the most beautiful rifle around. But, to also answer the question, I bought it for squirrel hunting. Never did like the idea of hunting squirrels with a shotgun. It was so accurate that the single shot was all you ever needed for this hunting. I once amazed a nephew by shooting a hole in a tree, then take the spent shell, stick it in the bullet hole and with another single shot, drive the shell out of sight into the hole. I also took my daughter into the woods to squirrel hunt and she could knock them from the trees at the distances I was shooting. But, at that time I owned a Volkswagen Superbeetle into which I had installed a CB radio and had the rifle in the boot from a trip to West Virginia the weekend before. At that time CB radios were great theft items, and of course they had to break into my car and steal the radio. And the worst part was that in the glove compartment was the lever that released the boot. I guess it is self explanatory what happened to my rifle. Every since then, I always look for them at different places, but have never found one that looked as good as this one. I would like to find one that is in this condition. The gentleman that said he found one at a gun show and was able to purchase it for $100, I could hardly believe. He definitely got a great buy and will enjoy shooting it for the rest of the time. If you tire of it, just let me know and I'll take it off your hands

Default 513t

Why, because it is a rifle I wanted so bad as a kid. It is super accurate with of all things CCI mini mags. I put a old K6 Weaver on it. Out to 100 yds nothing better pop up.

The 513t is a good looking gun.

I need to order the heavy barrel for mine. (It is really a 511 Score Master in a 513 stock). So once I get the money I am ordering the barrel for it. Thought about ordering a SS Kreiger barrel and having it fitted to the gun.

I'd really like a Ruger 77/17.

Default Favorite .22

My favorite is my Marlin Golden 39A. Bought it new(with my Dad's signature) in "68", with paper route $ for $89.95. Sent it back to Marlin in the late "80"s" for the tune up program they had going, had it factory re-blued+new gold trigger installed at that time, and now it still looks as new+shoots very well.

I love my Marlin Mod 60. "Marlin Mod 60?" Yes, my Marlin Mod 60. Unlike very many others, this rifle has never givin me a lick of trouble. Never jammed, isnt loose. Shoots as stright as the day I got her...and shoots for cheap.
