Default we're a dying breed

Not many of us are left who remember going to a fair/carnival and actually shooting a Winchester pump 22. To me at least, nostalgia equals the Winchester 61 or 62. This Rossi 62 pump is a tasty piece of cake given those Winchesters are getting hard to find. A 22 rifle, in my feeble mind, is a pump. (Like the pump BB guns.)

My dad has a Winchester 1890 in 22 short.
Guy he got it from said it was a gallery gun. Its well worn but still pretty accurate.
The problem is the chamber is worn out so when shot, the case bulges and it fails to extract.
Id like to get the barrel sleeved or replaced, but you know how it goes.
Another project on the list.

There were two things I did at the carnivals, The first was immediately go to the shooting gallery. The second thing was just walk around after spending all my money shooting. Those days feel like a million years ago.

My Marlin Golden 39-A I purchased new back in 2000. Before the "Remlin" takeover. Best .22 I'll ever own!

That's a pretty rifle! Mine was made in 1962, the year before I was born.

Sadly, some of the newer Marlin 39-A models have very poor quality control, like this video shows. Can you imagine buying something like this, that is supposed to be considered a premium heirloom .22 rifle?

My favorite 22 is a Winchester model 90 WRF I picked up at a gun show last year which is a twin to the one I inherited from my Dad, in fact, they were both built in the same year. I don't like shooting Dad's because of a cracked and repaired stock and the overall sentimental value. This one however shoots like a dream, shinny bore with good grooves, tight action and lyman peep sights.



My best shooting 22 is my Marlin 60SS which I picked up at Wally World a few years ago miss-marked at $158. I added the CNC'd trigger group and McCarbo spring set and it will flat out shoot any 22 I own including my 10-22's. This and a Speed-e-loader makes for a great afternoon.



I just finished upgrading a Remington Model 12a with a Williams peep sight and a Lyman front Globe sight to use in a Steel Match they hold once a month. Hopefully I'll get time to take it out tomorrow to test the new sights. It could unseat my Marlin as my go to rifle.

P.S.Yes, Ruger makes good stuff I have many of them,flawless and accurate.Like you say!
After I got my .30-.30 Henry with an Octagon Barrel, I inquired about an Octagon Barrel in .22 Mag. Alas, the material for the barrel is not conducive to an Octagon. Eventually, I am thinking of getting one anyways, then switching out the barrel with a new one from 3rd party. I just think the Octagon has the really cool factor, but in addition in regards to my .30-.30, after firing it, the heavier barrel comes back down on target quite quickly, though I have nothing to compare to. It works for me!
