    fuzebox, you have the A1 closed bolt, not sure what version, but they all took the same mag. The mag is the same one the Model 80 bolt action uses.

    What Lanzerac was saying about the "semi-smokeless" and "smokeless", was critical in the open bolt Mod 50, not so much in the closed bolt. The open bolt had a part you could change inside the receiver to cycle either round. It was the early version of "Standard velocity" and "High velocity" today.

    Did you get your a1 together? Beautiful berch stock. I have a mint A1DL myself. Bought it without a clip but bought the model 80 and a quick clip mod i was in business.

    Could you please explain how you modified the model 80 magazine to fit the A1? My father found an A1 in my grandfathers house a few years ago, but he could not locate a magazine for it anywhere in that house and no one seems to be selling them :(

    As to the 'greased' part, Peters made tons of .22 ammo in the OLD days. I have shot many bricks through three different rifles back then. Peters ammo did make comment of 'greased' on their boxes.

    The projectile had a coating of what I would call wax or parafine (sp?) on it. This was to lube the bore.

    It was fine to shoot, but if you carried rounds lose in your pockets, as we all did back then, you got pocket grit, dust, etc. on the ammo. It felt 'ickey' then, and we usually wiped the rounds to clean them off before loading.

    Just saying....

    You have a Marlin A1C, it featured open rear sight and a bead front sight. The A1DL featured a hooded ramp front sight,a short base Marlin 12R receiver sight and sling swivels on the stock.

    I lost one just like the one in picture about 40 years ago in a boating accident in Tobesofkee Swamp. Guess it is still at the bottom of the creek.
