Nice rifles!
I have a pretty old .22, an 1887 Swedish Nagant revolver

I was out shooting some of my old .22s today.

Brought out my Remington 513S, a Mossberg 151M(b), and a winchester 1902.

They are all surprisingly accurate, but the 513 will shoot circles around most other rifles.

I am also a fan of old 22's. I've only 3, an old Mossberg (no serial number), a H&R Reising m65 trainer and a Prewar German Mauser training rifle.

I really like shooting the last two.

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.

Nice I have that same on picked up one day for $75 I love it

Yes I do shoot it, it actually shoots quite well for having a relined barrel and cylinder; it can shoot around a 2" group at 10 yards offhand for me. Not as good as a S&W K22, but lots of fun.

Apparently back in the early 60's a company imported a number of these revolvers and converted them to .22lr. I think it's an interesting piece of history.

I have OLD .22s. A Colt Lightning small frame pump .22 made in 1898. A Model 1897 Marlin .22 Lever made in 1907. A Marlin 1891 Lever .22 made in 1895. My newest one I would consider old is a Remington 12c. Made in 1930. I shoot them all and they all function and shoot nice..

I sold my old Winchester 1890 Pump several years back so am looking for one of those now.

All have Octagon barrels. I really like Octagons..

My grandpa has a colt woodsman, but I don't think it is that old, the one thing I like about the woodsman is that it has a "real" mag release and not a european style mag release like the Hi-standard

Your Woodsman is certainly old enough for this thread! Amid all the tactical 22s that are currently in fashion, I am just trying to call attention to all of the fine older 22s that are still out there performing well for for their current owners---just like fine musical instruments are passed down thru time becoming even more valuable to their owners---think of all the kids that are shooting today as adults because they started on the "lowly" 22!

Mosinnagant, I just got a 1955 Remington 513S (it's in "gun jail" for a week more....). How's yours shoot?

I'm not a collector and only bought this one because it has been drilled and tapped for a side mount for old 3/4" scopes. The Weaver B4 on it is trashed, but I have a new, unused Weaver J 2.5X that will fit the same mount, so should be able to shoot it when I get it (my ancient eyesight requires a scope now). These Remingtons cost EXACTLY what a Winchester Model 75 Sporter cost in 1955, according to my old 1955 "Gun Digest"! The cost is VERY different now, tho. The competitive Winchester model will bring about twice what the Remington will. I actually prefer the Remington 500-series action to the Winchester.

I also love C&R .22s and have a bunch. Some of them were new when I bought them. Does that make ME a "curio and relic"? My wife and MD would readily agree to the "relic" part....

You easily could be both a curio and a relic, but thats just part of the fun of growing older...

Mine runs flawlessly. I have never had any issues with it. It will fire any ammunition (22lr) and always cycles smoothly. I used some M-Pro 7 products to get the action working again since it was in a closet for 30+ years.

Older Mossberg 22 bolt rifles are currently hot on the collector-shooter market, there are shooting clubs for old Mossberg 22s---if you're real nice, they might let you sneak in with an older Remington 22...

Even though I have plenty of modern rigs, my grand-dads' Remington Model 33 (with rifled bore) gets out at least once a month for a shoot at the range, where it still is the one I shoot best with open irons. Also love the tack-driving capacity of my pre-war Model C Hi-Standard. Cheap, accurate, and one of the best ways to work on technique and good habits.

Cool Thread! My Dad bought me & my Brother a Remington "speedmaster" model 552. We shot it so much we warped the Barrel, literally. I`m guessing before 1974. Some great looking .22`s here, I like the Pump Savage shown!!! My Stepdad is supposed to give me an early Mossberg Pump .22 someday. Has an Octagon Barrel as well.

I thought i would add a couple photos of two of mine I mentioned earlier.Top one is a Colt Lightning Pump 22. I had to put a new repro forearm and a work on it for a month to get it working properly. It was all in parts when I bought it for 125.00. Left it pretty much the way I found it other than the new forearm and reassembly. Metal on the Colt is all original finish. I did clean up the stock however. It was made in 97 or 98 according to Colt.

Second one is a Marlin 1891 made in 1894 that I am just finishing up. It was a project for sure. Was only a Barrelled action when I recieved it. No sights,wood,buttplate,or magazine. Also was a missing a couple small inside parts. Has a great bore and chamber.

Wood,sights,magazine and buttplate are all repro stuff on the Marlin. Still a good looking rifle now. I like it anyway.

Both actually have very nice bores and I do shoot them both. I had to put a chamber insert in the Colt as it was loose. Left the rifling alone however as it was good. Thanks

I wouldn't say they are all beat-up, grabbed this one off a guy on C-list. 151m(a). No rear irons on it, still has peep, I added the scope, just needed a good cleaning and oiling.

I recently picked up a 1960 Marlin Mountie from the estate of a WWII fighter pilot, by no means pristine, but has become my favorite...
