    How about some rare, limited production,old or unusual .22 rifles.

    Lets see you what got.

    I have a H&R Single shot long rifle only Model 365 Ser 4xx Lyman 55-H rear sight, made 1946-47. Some were marked Ace or Reg'lar. Mine has neither marking. It has no feed ramp cartridge fed into chamber. Some say it was designed by Reising who was working for H&R at that time. Bolt is large enough to be a center fire way over built. 22" Heavy barrel.
    The value is a little over $100 but a real tack driver.

    I also own a 365 REG/LAR. Bought it in incomplete condition w/broken rear sight at a gunshow for $15. Numrich had the needed parts. Found a new Lyman rear sight on Ebay. (At a great price too. Got lucky on that one.) Refinished the stock.
    Usually these projects are sold or traded to get other projects. But when I took this one out to shoot, it was WOW! You ain't a woofin about it being a tack driver. I kept it.

    I have a Winchester Model 55 .22 single shot semi-auto. I believe it was made for about 3 years between 1958 and 1961 about 45,000 were made .The rifle functions flawlessly. :) Cliff

    I have a HEYM single shot .22. Looks very old and simply made. Havn't been able to find any information re model, age, etc.

    Actually, Winchester marketed it as a single-shot automatic.
    What it is is a basic single shot with automatic ejection.
    Kind of a neat little rifle but seldom seen these days.

    Here's a link to the manual for the 55.

    SWEET LOOKING RIFLES! I had a Winchester mod 52 with a 4 digit serial number. My eldest son borrowed it and I haven't seen it in a year. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the pictures.
