My favorite 22 rifle

I've have or have had a bunch... CZ varmint, Remington 581, Rem 541X, several marlins i forget the models, a Henry, a Savage, and a few others I can't recall at the moment, but my absolute favorite is my Winchester 69A. Nice and worn and has that vintage "look" and accurate as any of the others..

The only drawback is, its an early model and not grooved for a scope.. If i see another one around that grooved, i'm buyin it.

Like you, I have so many, 22LR and 22WMR. They're so much fun. Maybe my top 4 are a Browning BL-22, a CZ 512 in 22WMR, a Tikka T1x in 22LR, and a Winchester 9422M XTR in 22WMR.

I only have three, a Ruger, a Glenfield, and a Winchester. None really do anything for me, but they're nice to have.

I have a few but the Marlin 39A is the last one I would part with. 1962 vintage.

I sold a member on MD Shooters a very nice grooved 69A a few years back, very nice rifle.

Of all the 22's I have this Cooper Custom Classic is my favorite, not only looks good but is very accurate, the target is 5 shots 50 yards, equaled factory test target.

I have a thing for .22's with my favorite being my Kimber 82 Custom Classic, it's a close second my BSA International MK III or BSA model 15 Centurian or a couple of others. I really can't choose an absolute favorite.

Ruger 10/22, unnecessarily modified but it's a shooter. Chipmunk with a beautiful walnut stock, it was my first gun and will go to my son or daughter. CZ 512 in 22wmr, had some cycling issues but fixed by polishing the extractor and channel. CZ 552 in a chassis, super accurate. I had a Win 48B but I sold it. Browning T-bolt in 22wmr, the straight pull is so much fun. Marlin 68, my only lever gun and very fun to shoot. Then a few pistols obviously. If I could only have one it would be the 10/22 because it's as accurate as my bolt guns and is semi auto.

One of the things I miss about growing up in Nebraska was the ability to easily go out and plink around with a .22.

I had so many to 22s to choose from as a kid. I don't know why my Dad had so many - probably because he'd pick them up cheap at garage sales and that sort of thing, so there were about 20 or so 22s lined up on the big gun rack along the one wall in the basement. I used a little Browning 22 initially because it was such as small gun. It ended up breaking - those were notorious for having the tube magazine outer tube break off in the stock. They ended up replacing the stock on it, but it was never as nice as when it was original - the metal to wood fit just isn't great. (I still have it)

I started using another 22 for a bit - a Western Field Model 59. It was ok, but it would jam if it got dirty.

At that point I gravitated to another 22 on the rack - I didn't even know what it was at the time, I just liked it because as a lever action, it had a certain aura of cool about it. It was an early 1950s Marlin 39a. Unfortunately, that one is no longer with the family.

I guess of the 22s I have now, my favorite is probably my Winchester Model 1890. It's old, (Manufactured in 1913) but not particularly collectible - the barrel on it is a generic replacement so it has multiple dovetails to attach the tube magazine and the repair wasn't done particularly well. At some point the stock had been broken as well, so it was fixed with a bolt through the stock - it's round on one side and square on the other. It's a family gun though, and my Grandpa specifically told my Dad that it was to be mine when I was old enough to have it.

I've thought about seeing if it could be restored, but it would cost more money to do that than it's worth - I'm just not sure if that juice is worth the squeeze.
