I have just had the good fortune to have purchased an
IVER JOHNSON MODEL X .22 RIMFIRE BOLT ACTION RIFLE. Serial #4886.
Overall the rifle is in very good condition. The stock has been redone sometime in the past . But has no dents or cracks that I can notice.
The metal is also in nice condition with a few specks of surface rust and some very slight pitting.
Overall i am a very happy camper.
One issue that I was aware of , and was brought to my attention by the seller was that the bolt/screw that keeps the trigger assembly attached to the receiver is slightly stripped.
I think the screw would turn into the hole if I used a little force but i don't want to booger it up any further.
Other then tapping the hole to accept a larger screw would there be any other way to fix this issue?
Thanks in advance for any ideas and suggestions.
I will post some pics shortly
