Default Winchester 1890 22 WRF or LR

I have an opportunity to purchase an average to good condition Winchester 1890 in 22 WRF for less than $600.00. All things except price being equal, would you buy a WRF caliber or hold out and pay more for a LR version?

I think it would be cooler to have the WRF. But are you going to shoot it alot? Or is it intended as a occasional Hunter or Plinker? WRF is quite expensive for just Plinking..

If you are going to shoot it more than just a collectible. I would go regular .22

600.00, if in decent shape, does not sound like a bad price for a WRF. Heck just buy both models.

Now why didn't I think of that

It would be an occasional range rifle and not a hunter since I don't have that option in the urban jungle.

I don't really like the idea of more expensive and hard to find ammo but the octagon barrel is calling out to me!
