Tac Op's Green Hornet is my favorite rim fire to shoot, sadly I don't own one...

I don't have one anymore, but my favorite was the Remington Nylon 66 my dad had. It disappeared after he died and I've never been able to track it down. Lots of stuff disappeared during that time. I'm hoping to track one down at a gun show sometime.

For me it's my weatherby Mark XXII. Whatta tack driver! She's an oldie but goodie bought in the late '60s, semi auto, clip fed with the weatherby scope. I knocked down many a grey squirrels and cottontails with it in my yute.

I mowed lawns raked leaves and shoveled driveways starting the winter of '68 and by the fall of '69 I had $75. The gun was $90, and my dad kicked in the rest. It was used but pristine when I got my mitts on it.

I look at it today and wonder why the heck didn't I take better care of that beautiful stock! But hey, I was just a kid in the woods and enjoying life. markerdown

Default Marlin .22 Mag

My little marlin .22 mag bolt gun is my favorite. The .22 mag is cheap and has more pop than jsut .22 lr. A lot of unf to shoot, a tack driver out to 100 yards. I threw a rimfire scope on mine and I love shooting it, I can go for hours!

[QUOTE=M14sRock;100827]Hmm...I have 3 top contenders. A Lever, a Semi-Auto and a Bolt.

1.) Marlin 39. I have a carbine (39A Golden Mountie) from the late 40's, and a rifle (39AS) from the early 90's. Here is a pic of the rifle.
2.) Thompson Center arms TC Classic. A semi auto with match grade accuracy, graceful lines, and beautiful walnut stock.
3.) Anschutz 54 Sporter. Sleek, graceful and amazing accuracy.
4.) Gratuitous pic of my late 60's vintage 10/22 with beavertail forend. I'm not a big 10/22 fan, but have a couple.
5.) Added a 70's vintage Belgian Browning Take Down .22. This one has the original Browning hard case.

I have a couple, Ill put them in order.

#1-Marlin 39a. My dad gave me his years ago, he borrowed it back one winter, and it was stolen. So the one I have now is a "replacement". Its a 1978.

#2 Colt New Frontier 22 s-l-lr-mag. Dad bought it when he was 14, at a hardware store in Johnstown PA for $63. He gave it to me on my 14th b-day.
Round count would be impossible to guess, id say near 500,000(literally)

#3 Marlin 60 with 4-12x40 scope. Dead nuts accurate, reliable, cheap.

#4 CZ452, with a trigger that breaks when the wind hits it. Its a Brooks trigger, MIGHT be just under 2# or less.

and I have two more, another Marlin 60, and a Marlin 80.

Had a Winchester Model 150 hammerless lever rifle in the early 1960's. Absolutly loved that rifle when I was a kid. After reading this thread a week ago I started looking for it. My brother has it and the extractor is damaged. He said he had it to a gunsmith quite a few years ago and was told it couldnt be fixed. I think it can be fixed. I'll have to look at it closer and if I need a part I can't help to believe that someone somewhere has what I need.
