22 Rifles

Post by papabear » April 20th, 2013, 12:15 pm

Something that is rarely mentioned here is 22's period, handguns and rifles. With the price of ammunition getting more and more expensive, the .22 is a round that's still not expensive to shoot, and for some of us fun to shoot, either in plinking or target shooting. I personally enjoy taking my 22's to the range for both.

Here are some of my 22's

top to bottom:
CZ 452
Marlin 60
Winchester 290


All .22lr's

Recently added to my .22 collection is a Wards Western Field model 80A Take Down pump in 22 S-L & LR.

Some nice ones there.

I still have my Ruger 10/22 I got back in 76.

Shot thousands of rounds thru it, you can't kill em.

I don't have any .22 rifles, although I've had an itch to get one. My father has an old tube-fed rifle which I believe is a Marlin 60, but I can't bet on it. I haven't seen the gun since the early 90's. I do have a Sig Mosquito which has been a blast to shoot. It and my new (to me) P64 are my two pistols.

In the form of Rifles, I've picked up a couple of Mosin-Nagants, as they're inexpensive to purchase, and about 0.18 a round. (Or it was when I bought my 1.5 cases...) I've tacticalized one with a thumbhole Boyd's stock, a really nice rear-sight replacement rail (not one of the $10 cheapos you find all over ebay), and a decent scope. Shoots 2" groups at 100 yards if I can take my time. The gun's far more accurate than the shooter! I also maintained one in original condition and have a M44 carbine version with the folding bayonet. The M44's the only one I've taken a photo of, so here's a pic.

Welcome to the forum Flatland.

Tough to find Mosin ammo for .18 around now due to the hoarding.

Running more like .28-29 a round.

I have several 22 rifles. I think everyone should have at least one. My first gun was a Ruger 10/22 purchased in 1977, I believe. I still have it. I also have a Marlin 60 & a Remmington Fieldmaster pump. I have a few single shots too.

every time I see a photo of a CZ 22 rifle I can not help but think "I really need to get one of those"

Have to add some Polish flavoring to this thread,got some pics of the Wifama, she's a little bit rough but for 23 years old I guess it really is not that bad. Picked this up back in early October of 2010.

Figured I'd best share this here first, being it is the Polish Pierogi Pistol sight. Found this on E-bay the other day

Perfect match for the 22!

Forgot to update the unfired Wifama that found its way home back in September of 14. It's a little later production 1990 version. Had plastic trigger guard, since updated to an aftermarket steel, and a front sling mount on bottom instead of the foregrip.

I own 3 .22 rifles. The first is a Remington 514, a single shot, bolt action rifle that will shoot .22 short, .22 long, or .22 long rifle. I bought it back in 1971 when I was in the Navy. Back in the day, .22 short was quite cheap, cheaper then .22 long, or .22 LR, and a great plinking round for general practice. I have put thousands of rounds through the rifle, and always enjoyed shooting it.

My second is a Remington 581, a magazine fed, bolt action rifle. It shoots .22 long rifle only. Again, a nice weapon that just keeps functioning flawlessly.

My last is an Anschutz "Woodchucker", a youth sized, magazine fed, bolt action rifle I bought to teach my stepson to shoot. It is also very accurate, and a pleasure to shoot.
