    I have a Whippet Model C, Bolt action single shot .22 lr. I think the sear is wore too far, When I pull the cocking mechanism back it won't stay.. but if I lift the bolt up a little it will stay cocked until you push the bolt back down.. I know this is a very inexpensive rifle but I have fond Memories from back in the early 60's with my Grand dad and Dad lighting stick matches with the .22's , this was one of them, I also have the Marlin 39A.. (1945) they used as well. Is there any other Rifle that parts might inter change with the Whippet? whippet.jpg

    I’m no expert on part interchangeability but could you manufacture or get a friend to manufacture a new sear? If not, Gun Broker and even eBay are good places to find parts.

    You will have better luck in getting an email from a REAL Nigerian Prince that wants to send you money. Find a gunsmith- a real one. Right now before hunting season may not be a good time. If he can identify parts that are worn beyond safe, he MAY be able to do a bit of wire welding to the worn section, file it to shape. Don't think that rifle actually HAD a sear as a separate part. Looks like hook on trigger catches the striker.
