    I took some of my older .22 long rifles out to the range just to show that the older guns are a great value. Good accuracy and can be had for dirt cheap most of the time.

    I brought out my
    Mossberg 46M
    H&R sportster 250
    Ruger 10/22
    Winchester 67A
    Savage arms model 74

    All very nice guns and very fun to shoot.

    I never fail to take my trusty old 1942 Remington 512 Sportmaster to the range with me when I go to do some shooting. My dad got it when it was new for around $12 and change, then gave it to me when I was 10 y.o. for my first rifle. It's still dead on accurate, but I confess I needed to scope it a few years back to help with my aging eyesight. It's really hard to beat the old .22's for cost effective fun! :cool:

    love the old .22 rifles, a lot of the bores are bad in the ones my father has still but some still have pristine barrels in them and still shoot plenty accurate. My favorite is a springield/savage 1909 clip fed pump, tang peep sight. 100 years old and works perfect. Killed lots of squirrels with that gun.
  5. i also take along some of my aged ones but i think they still shoot so great is because of the uniformaty of todays ammo.i think years ago it wasnt as good as today. old semperfi

    If I could keep only one rifle it would be my Marlin 39A with no safety, no rebounding hammer and no holes drilled in the receiver to let evil spirits out.

    I'd like to have some old rifles like a 40X among others. Now that rifle is a shooter. I have a Savage 15-B, which is a single shot, bolt action .22 and that thing shoots as well as any rifle I own. But it doesn't have any way to mount a scope. If it did I'd be using it in competitions.
