So here is the conundrum. I'm looking for a military trainer to practice with. Generally I shoot and collect Lee Enfields, so the nearer to a Lee Enfield in terms of weight etc the better. So I'm looking for advice on getting the following :
- bolt action
- .22LR
- Repeating rifle (5 round magazine/clip at least)
- Solid wooden stock in military confiuration if possible.
This is so I can really work on the basics of shooting cheaply. Either a receiver mounted aperture sight or barrel mounted V rear sight is OK. Ideal scenario - a Lee Enfield British No.7 which is the No.4 Mk1 but in .22 and has a 5 round magazine - but these are around $1500 - $2000 even if they're available and I don't have that kind of money. So I'm looking for suggestions here from the .22 experts please

I think the CZ 452 Military trainer sounds like what your looking for.

Maybe they will get more of these in. Sold out right now.

The older Remington 512 or 591 (I think that's right. Verify!) rifles are excellent rifles as well.

I have one of the old Mossbergs witn the full stock. Have not shot it in years.
After looking at pictures of the M44, thats not it. I'm not sure what I have. I was told by my uncle that it was a military trainer.
It has a full length stock, bolt action. Heavy barrel.

Tough to beat a CZ 452, and they have a trainer model.

A Mossberg 42M or 46M may be something to consider. Bolt action, 7 round magazine, full stock, rear aperture sight and around 7 lb weight.

Yep. Many of the old Mossbergs were used for military training. What model do you have?

I just might have to clean it up and try it out.
Could have a tack driver and not know it.

I second the CZ 452... Excellent rifle - Zero bad things to say about it. -Steve
