Looks very nice Whittlin'. As the guys said...a little cleaning up and it will look brilliant mate.

I get a lot of enjoyment from refurbishing my old .22 rifles...the timber in the stock isn't top grade walnut so you can make little mistakes without doing any real harm.

Cheers, Vince

I did notice that it had a unique safety feature.The first cartridge will load from the follower easily and pain free .But if the gun isn't fired the next round won't chamber into the follower.

I think I'll try to refinish/restore the stock and then maybe add a cheap old scope .It already has grooves for a scope.

PostPosted: Sat Jul 18, 2009 4:30 am    Post subject: Nice looking rifle at a decent price Reply with quote

I am looking at a similar rifle at a local gun shop for $59.00. It does not have a grooved receiver for scope rings, but is factory drilled for a side scope mount. The problem with the rifle is a bobby pin protrusion at the top of the receiver over the closed bolt that helps to feed rounds into the chamber. When that bobby pin breaks, it costs a lot of money to replace it. Take care...
