    Hey folks, I'm looking for a plinker .22 rifle that I can buy with my C&R FFL. I wanted a Romanian trainer, but it's not eligible.

    I know there are a lot of old .22's on the used market and auction sites, but I'm wondering if anybody knows of a .22 rifle that's being sold through an importer or wholesaler (like Aim, etc.) that is C&R.

    I've seen some Enfield training rifles, but the cost seems a bit... excessive... for a .22. Anybody have any tips?

    P.S. I couldn't decide on whether to post this here in the .22 forum or the C&R forum. If it needs to be moved, feel free.

    Hi Sniper....why not put it in both places. Double your pleasure, double your fun.

    I know that at one time there were a bunch of Mossburg WWII training rifles around. They should be C&R. I don't know if any other U.S. manufacturers made .22 trainers during the War, but any that were made should all be C&R.

    Also, there are a lot of old pre-war .22 plinkers out there. They should be eligible.

    Thanks Xracer, I'll post it there too.

    I'm a little surprised and disappointed that there are not more trainer rifles available from wholesalers. I keep seeing large influxes of full-fledged battle rifles, but not a lot in the way of trainer rifles. I guess it's because they were never really mass-produced for issuing to soldiers.

    There was a small batch of Polish 22 trainers available a year or two ago, but they seem to have rapidly disappeared.

    Yes I believe the Polish ones were C&R. Does CMP still have the old Mossberg trainers for sale?

    Yes - the Polish trainers were C&R. They are a single shot 22, and from outwards appearance looked like a Mosin Nagant. SOG was selling them for $89 each when they had them.

    Ok, I found a Polish trainer at J&G Sales.... $100 each, or $90 if you buy two. Looks just like a Mosin Nagant M38 to me, but without the magazine. Are they all carbine length?

    Hmmm, I might consider this model, but I want to see what else is out there. Single-shot doesn't excite me too much. I wouldn't mind if it were a higher caliber, but for a .22, manually loading each tiny cartridge would get old real quick.

    I really like the looks of the Enfield trainer, but I just can't bring myself to spend that much on a freakin' .22.
