    Mate of mine loaned me this rifle.

    Without much instruction:

    I'm a shotgun kinda guy & have not had much time with 'rifles'.

    (Shot targets with a .303 on my uncles farm when I were a lad.

    Shot Roo's in OZ with some sorta .22)

    ________________________________________________________________

    Any idea what type of .22 this one is?

    Any tips?

    Questions comments welcomed

    1. there a safety?

    2. how do you get the bolt out?

    Looks to be a Savage Model Sporter 23A. Here's a link to a gunbroker auction of one that looks just like it.

    With most .22 rifles, you make sure the rifle is EMPTY, then pull the trigger back to release the bolt. Pull it again to slide the bolt back in. Some rifles use the Mauser-style bolt stop on the left side of the receiver.

    Actually other than the schnabel fore end it looks nothing like it. It looks to be a Mauser to me but I know next to nothing about .22 Mausers. It should be marked on the receiver if it is indeed a Mauser and the safety would be at the rear of the bolt. The pics aren't clear enough to tell if it has the Mauser style bolt release.

    The semi bull barrel has an interesting taper to it and the whole rifle says German Garden rifle, although most are single shots. Better pics of the action would help, and appears there is an screw/ bedding screw? missing. Does it shoot well? Good luck.

    better pics

    Thanks for the info

    The bolt slips on out when I push the trigger 'fwrd.

    See better Pics.

    Says BRNO

    and "SHILEN .22 LR"

    ? on the rear end of the bolt is a lever ; circled in red in my photo.

    Seems to have some slight movement.

    Any suggestions what it for be?

    thanks

    Does it shoot well?

    Original asked "does it shoot well".

    HHmmmmm ..... ...

    How on earth do one tell?

    I was gonna print me off some BAlls eyes; head out to the river and set 'em up pretty close by.

    Lay down & Shoot me some shells. If'n I got most in the middle ring(s)

    I'd move me back and do again.

    repeat

    etc

    until I was mostly missing.

    Any body got some more rational method of deciding "does she shoot well"?

    or is this the topic of well-flamed threads?

    I daresay it's a BRNO model 1 that has been shot to pieces and rebarrelled with a new Shilen heavy barrel. I'm pretty sure the lever locks the bolt, you flip it around to the right when the rifle is cocked and it will prevent the bolt from dropping when the trigger is pulled.

    If that rifle doesn't shoot well there's something wrong, between the Shilen barrel and the (CZ) BRNO name, it should be capable of MOA and under at 75 metres at least. BRNO rifles are legendary in Aus for their accuracy and reliability.
