Remington 513 Sporter 1953
Savage/Springfield 187S my pop gave me
Ruger Single Six 1974 Pre Warning
Ruger Pre MK I (Standard)
early Browning Buckmark
I'm looking to add to my Remington collection with the 5teen series.
When it comes to rimfires I'm kinda fussy...It has to go bang when I pull the trigger They all outshoot me with the right ammo and are just plain cheap FUN !!
Gosh I don't know if I can remember them all....
Ruger MK1 6 7/8
Browning Buckmark 5½"
American Arms PK22
Jennings P22......that goes everywhere I go
Marlin 883....that was given to me
Ranger 103.8....same as Marlin 100
2- Savage MK2 for my boys
Stevens 87A....that is very accurate
Oh my I didn't know I had that many
some are safe queens and others get the workout
Marlin 60, (first gun, easily outshoots the Rugers, though)
Marlin 17V HMR
Remington M24 gallery gun (.22 short only, made in 1922)
I've owned two 77/22s, a Remington 552, a wad of other 10/22s and Mk IIs, a couple of 22/45s, a Single-Six, an old High Standard Marshal (revolver), a Jennings J-22, and a couple of Smiths, a M18 and a POS 622, a Winchester 61, and last and least, a High Standard .22 pump.
A potload of them. 25 at last count, ranging from pistols to target rifles. All get used occasionally, but the most used are a 5.5" Buckmark HB Field model with an Ultradot, a 10-22 with a Kimber fluted SS barrel and Hogue stock, and my silhouette rifle which is a Kimber M82C SS Classic. The most fun are probably the Buckmark, a Win 9422 and a Walther G-22. The oddest might be the Kintrek bullpup. No 17RFs, and only one 22WMR - a CZ American.
No true hunter has no rimfire's. My love of shooting stems from a Winchester 67 that unfortunately someone in 1981 needed more than I did. To this day I would recognize that rifle and still dream of hunting with it. As you can see below it sparked an insatiable desire for rimfires
6 10/22's- 1 carbine, 1 DSP, and 4 as far from stock as you can get (one in 17M2)
Marlin model 20
10" and 23" Contender barrels
Rossi Gallery model
Noble 275 lever action (mention action due to the oddity of the brand)
Glenfield model 60
Stevens model 15 (this is the training gun and proudly wears the name of the kids who it taught to shoot written on it)
2 Savage 93R17's
Charter Arms AR-7
Charter Arms Explorer
2 Ruger Mark II's
Ruger Single Six (Three screw)
I am about halfway to enough, just 20 or so more and I can die happy
And luckily I have 2 kids to help make sure they are used and my ammo doesn't expire ( I know ammo doesn't but they just want to make sure).
Marlin 782 .22mag
Stevens 414 Armory - sometime in it's history someone built it to look like a Walnuthill - amazingly accurate too
Remington 513-T (Current project gun I am trying to build a custom bench stock for this one.)
Mossberg M46(b) b
Ruger MkII Govt Target Model
Beretta Neos 6.5" w red dot
