View Full Version : Got some old 22s, need some info

so i recently inherited some old 22s from my grandpa. one is a single shot bolt action 22lr. it says Ward Western Field Rifle 35A. i need to try and find some parts or repair it, the bottom of the bolt and the trigger catch seem to be worn, and my grandpa said it would fire by itself and was dangerous :eek:. also got a J.C Higgins model 28 22lr, with the charging handle on the left side and a jeweled bolt. and a tiny 22short revolver "Vest pocket" that barely fits in my hands. ill try to post some picks on the revolver for some laughs. the revolver was the loudest one too :D
Heres the Ward western 35A

The Bolt assembly, very worn the trigger is in bad shape also

after some searching on here, looks like its probably a Mossberg 30, and that they have problems with the bolts. cant seem to find any parts tho :(. so if anyone has an old Mossberg 30, 34 that they feel like selling the bolt out of... :)

The models 28, 29 and 30 JC Higgins semi auto rifles had a left handed charging handle but ejected to the right. I think that they were made by High Standard originally.

Numrich has an astonishing selection of parts for older, uncommon guns. I've had luck fixing several of my old 22s.

If you post pics then it would help id the rifles. Try Rimfirecentral, great place for info on .22. Lastly, for Mossberg rifles Havlins sales has parts for many older models.

The big Papa. if anyone has any info on this little thing would be awesome, all i have found is that it is probably german made and was very cheaply made :)

The thing barely fits in my hands. and was loud enough to require ear protection :D
