Got a BL22 that I'm very happy with. Was tempted to get another when they released them with maple stocks.

Winchester/Browning/Olin/Miroku should release a pump 22 again. The old Winchesters are commanding Python prices these days.

Hope to update this thread in the near future with pics of a pump 22 (likely a Remington).

In one of Hickok45's earlier videos, he shares a special 22 LR pump action rifle, the Remington 572 that he bought for his son on the day of his son's birth ...

Henry makes a very nice pump action .22. I have the golden boy in .22lr and 17HMR. My next Henry will be the pump action.

Also have an old winchester 1906 that was my grandfathers. Functions perfectly.

Buy every Rossi pump gallery gun you can find at a reasonable price. Especially carbines. Used to be able to snag them from $150 to $250. Pricing now is closer $350/$400

I love my Henry "Evil Roy" .22 lever action.
I got it at the Chantilly show for a good price.

Throw up some pics of the Model 61 when you get time on the weekend. Also check out the prices on GB. That's a nice heirloom.

Apparently, John Browning was a 22 pump fan and the earliest designs come from him that the 61 is derived from. Winchester agreed to produce them as long as he went back to designing lever actions for them. As Jimbob2.0 mentioned, these were frequently called gallery guns, given their ubiquity at carnival shooting booths (even at Disney for many years). They often used a special frangible bullet in a 22 short case that didn't require ear pro and disintegrated on contact.

I'm attracted to the Henry 22 Magnum pumps as well. They're practically the only affordable 22 Mag pumps available, and Henry seems to have gotten over a quality control problem they had with these 22 Mag rifles a couple years back. With a rear Skinner peep sight, one has decent range and power comparable to a 9mm PCC, but in a very innocuous package.

1st gun I ever owned was a Winchester model 250 lever 22 that my dad bought for me, probably came from Western Auto. Sill have that gun today some 45-50 years later. It would be the last rifle I ever parted with.

Will do! Ill dig it out of the back of the safe. One day when I have time I plan to sit down alone and go through it and clean it up proper. I have never shot it. I will when the time is right.
