Subject: Lets talk "OLD" .22 Rifles, pistols, and revolvers
I just bought two older .22 rifles one is a Winchester model 62, I found a website that told me it was made in 1947, being post WW2 make it a little less value, but mine looks like it was taken excellent care of. It uses the .22 short, long, and long rifle ammo, fed by the tube under the barrel, and pump action.

The second .22 rifle I purchaced is a Western Field Model M-830 put out by Montgomery Wards in the 1950's and 60's, and later in the 70's and 80's. The one mag I got with this rifle adjusts for .22 short, long, and long rifle ammo, and bolt action.
Look at the second photo: http://www.ammoclip.com/Numbers/340_350.htm
they sell replacement mags that will work in my rifle equivilint Mossberg 340/350 mags.
The origional mags are NOT EASY to find!
I am taking a break from the "big" guns and working with my collection of .22 pistols, revolvers and NOW rifles. Less expensive to buy and shoot! Lets hear what you guys have!

I will speak of my .22 pistols, revolvers later in this thread.

Hmmm... Ok I have a 1960's Winchester semi-auto (can't think of the model # at the moment), a Remington Fieldmaster pump early 60's, a 70's Charles Daly Field Grade semi-auto w/scope, amd one of those Romanian .22 bolt-action training rifles that I refinished, turned out real nice and really accurate with a scope on it.
I guess my favorite is the Remington, though I shoot the Charles Daly the most.

I also have a Winchester Mod. 62. It was my very first rifle. When my father-in law passed away I was given his Marlin Glenfield Mod. 75 with the original 4x15 scope and the original box. It was a gift to him from his kids and he fired less than one box thrugh it.
For those who fight for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

I got a Romanian M-69 training rifle .22lr . I've shot at rabbits with it from at least 400-500yds. and hit dead on with a scope. And taken shot almost 300yds. without a scope. The scope is a Tasco 3-7x20mm.

Have 2 rifles in .22 caliber.
One old one a SAVAGE pump I thiink is a model 29
One newer one a REMINGTON 572. This one i use the most. Its nice and smooth action is a pleasure to shoot, and never get tired shooting.

Just one revolver.
Its a RG 24. Don't shoot that so much cause I hear its a cheap gun and could fall apart while you are using it.

Still not enough info on the .22 to tell.

Also the Enfield I'd need to know more about, is it the long-barrelled, long-stock or the short-barrelled carbing with the flash-hider on it? It's a .308 right?

Dang you people gotta learn how to post more information if you wanna know what gun you have.... :shock:

It's either a #5 or a 2A, either way $225 is a fair price.

If it has a rear peep sight on the receiver and a round-cornered magazine it's a #5.

If it has a ladder-type military sight on the barrel and a square-cornered magazine it's a 2A.

You really gotta post more information when you are trying to ID a gun. Every detail and characteristic is important.

Your .22 training rifle may be worth more than the Enfield but I can't tell you without a more DETAILED description.

I have an old Mossberg 142-A that has the fold down plastic forearm(used as a monopod?). It also has the original peep and some nice walnut. This little(35 inches long) is a blast and is very accurate. I bought it from my boss, who still had the directions and an extra mag with the adapter to convert it for .22 shorts.

In a deer camp full of Brownings, Dakotas, Winchesters, etc., its fun to see these guys line up for their turn with this rifle.

TheMajor-My Dad has a single shot 22 he got for his Birthday in 1935. Stevens "Springfield" Model. Great shototer still> I have a .22 Stevens single shot "take down" rifle. I had the keeper (finger tightening screw) redone by a gun smith because it was a little loose. It is in beautifull shape. It has 1913 on it but was sold with no serial # from factory. I have been told that Savage took over Stevens!? With the small (culey cue) type lever. It's like a small model 94 lever. I gets some nice comments on it. I also have the Winchester pump ( grew up as a kid on one) model 62 or as it is called a lot "shooting gallery gun". Remember the good old days of the fair is in town or going to an amusment park? It has a scrape on the medal on the right side but the rest in real nice shape. I also have all four Winch. model 94's (9422). I do not have the "custom" though and there was only 94 of them made. They are are still new in the box. I am looking at a Ruger .22 "Luger" right now and thinking about buying a new Ruger "Blackhawk".22 &; .22 Mag. To wheels. Those are two I sold in Texes in the 1969 or 1970 in and of cource regrate it. I think thats it.....Sage

I have a Stevens lever single shot .22 Rifle made in 1913 in real nice condition. It does not have a serial # on it as it came from the factory like that. It is the "take down" model. I a Winchester pump to mod. 62 or what we call a shooting gallery gun that is about 1932 I think. I have to look again. I also have all four Winchester model 9422's new in the box still. I do not have the "custom" one though. They only made 94 of those. I sold my .22 Ruger Blackhawk (two wheels) one was .22 mag. and my .22 Ruger "luger" in Texas in the late 1969 or 1970 that I might replace. As most of us I am sorry I sold them and a lot others. Oh well, enough for now.........Sage

yeah my RG 6 shot after i cleaned it because it had been stored a while i took it out and for some reason the firing pin was hitting the very outside edge and rim of the bullet and on the 4th shot it misfired and a round got lodged in the barrel so i took it to the gunsmith who removed it so i went back &; reloaded and the next shot did the same thing, getting lodged in the barrel so my step-dad decided to leave it in there and take it all apart and leave it like that in my safe he said it probably could never be fired again. anyone have any idea it could be doing that. and also the sight a permanetly fixed but before my bilogical father gave it to me(who got it from my grandad) he dropped it and the front sight is bent, so the accuracy sucks. should i just leave it put up and never shoot it again or is there something that could be done about it????????????????????????????????

I got me 2 M-1969 Romanian Trainin Rifles, goin ta get nother one in a few weeks and pick up a extra stock so I can screw around and make me a short one, gonna cut the butt off up ta the grip and sand it ta make it look nice then try shortinin the barrel and recrownin it, git a pistol scope and see what I can do with dem rabbits. Thought it'd be a good project ta try, if it works out how I'm planin I'll use it for rabbits and target shootin at the range

I have a Remington 514 made in December 1956! My Dad bought it for me in 1962 when I was 14. I have shot thousands of rounds through it. It is a great shooter. They made two models in 514, a full size and a boys model. I have the full size. Never put a scope on it. It will go to my oldest son when I pass. My daughter is the best shot with it, beating my son who was in the 82nd Airborne!!!

Old .22's are right up my alley. I'm one of those strange birds that has little interest in new shiney guns. I like OLD GUNS. I used to collect milsurps and specialized in Japanese Arisaka's, but nowdays I'm into old .22's. I usually try to find old "project guns" in need of minor repair and TLC. And I've got a bunch of them.

to Kendall: I know that gun sounds like a basket case, and it may be. I would not leave it around with a round stuck in the barrell without dismantling it, someone will try to fire it someday.

personally I would have it checked out by a competent smith and see what the deal is, then you may decide to "retire" it based on what he says

Subject: Remington 572 BDL front sight problem
I have a Remington 572 BDL Fieldmaster .22 Pump that has a post sight mounted with two screws that are 2" apart. I want to remove that sight and install a 3/8" dovetail tunnel/target sight but can't because there is no 3/8" dovetail cut in the barrel to recieve that kind of sight. Remington made two barrels for the 572. One has thes BDL 2" front post sight like mine and the other barrel option has a 3/8" dovetail cut in the barrel. Does anyone know where I can find a barrel for the 572 that has the 3/8" dovetail cut? My only other option is to cut a dovetail into the existing barrel.

Thanks

IMO your best bet is eBay. I bought a 511 awhile back that I got cheap because it had a bulged barrel. It's still seemed to shoot accurately, but I wanted to replace the barrel anyway. Tried all the parts vendors, including those listed on the Remington website as specializing in Remington parts. No Luck. Watched the various gun auction websites. No luck.
Meanwhile I saw saw about a dozen pass thru eBay. Most went higher than I wanted to pay and I got sniped on a couple. But finally not only did I get one in my price range, but it is a good one of a close vintage to my rifle w/similiar patina.

Monday, January 16, 2012.    My Wife has an old 22 rifle,I can't be sure (not enough info left on gun), I think its a Stevens  #14 1/2 little scout . I can't find a breakdown of it , I think it is missing springs ? only the trigger spring is working. The rolling block and hammer are loose & floppy, I have sent a couple e-mails out looking for parts ,& have not  heard back.  Any information anyone can share with me about this gun would be very helpful. Thanks

I am a newbie to the forum, but have bought from CTD for years. I,m too old to so fisticuffs anymore, so I carry my protection.  
Gotta go with the Ruger 10-22, next is the old 550Remington with a brick or .22 shorts 400 to 500 yards or was that feet?? I work that from a hot air balloon at 1500 feet AGL. pistol would be a Double nine .22 or my fav. Colt frontier scout single action, that I often shoot 3 or 4 times per week.@import url(http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/Forums/CuteSoft_Client/CuteEditor/Load.ashx?type=style&file=SyntaxHighlighter.css);
