My oldest .22 is a Savage 29. It's a take down pump gun made in 1929. I bought it from my gunsmith about four years ago. I bought it because I like the octagon barrel and the natural balance it has. I've shot it off the bench to check the sights and test ammo. I'm constantly amazed at the accuracy and the reliability.
I have several rifles and handguns made in the 40's and 50's and although I'm always scratching the itch to see what the new stuff is like, I find myself shooting the old guns more.
