Rim Fire Rifles
Magtech .22LR semi auto outfit
A .22LR Magtech semi auto rifle - Model 7022. It comes with a Simmons 3-9 x 40 scope and a Parker Hale Moderator. It is all in good condition with only the moderator showing some faded bluing. I have shot the rifle and it feeds and cycles very well.
Pietta PPS50 .22LR - Soviet Sub Machinegun look alike
The Pietta PPS-5- is a .22LR semi automatic made to resemble the Soviet PPSH sub machine gun. The rifle came with the 50 shot drum magazine, but I could never get it to feed reliably. I therefore purchased a new 30 shot stick magazine to go with the rifle. The drum magazine comes included in the sale. You may be able to make it work properly, but if not, and 30 rounds is just not enough for you the drum magazines are available from Henry Krank. The rifle is in good shape all through with excellent condition wood. Superb fun for adults who have not yet grown up.
ERMA Mauser K98 DSM-34 Training Rifle .22LR
A .22lr rifle made in pre war nazi Germany as a training rifle. These rifles were made by ERMA - Erfurter Maschinenfabrik -and were made to copy the characteristics of the Mauser K98 service rifle. They were used for training troops and were apparently also used by the Hitler Youth. Germany was obliged to be discrete about it's weapons and rearming activities and these obvious service rifle copies were all stamped " "Sport Modell". The rifle is in a serviceable but unrestored condition. The exterior has surface rust in places and discolouration on the stock. The stock is sound and hard. The exterior finish is still present and would greatly benefit from gentle cleaning. The bore is remarkably good. A rare and useable collectors single shot rifle.
Browning BL-22 Lever Action Riifle
A Browning BL-22 lever action rifle. Considered by many to be the best lever action design. This example was made in Japan where Borwnings were made under licence by Miroku - to the usual high Browning standards. The iron rear sight has been removed but the receiver has scope rails. The muzzle has been screw cut for a moderator and the rifle has London proof marks. The rifle has been used and has some minor scuffs and dings to the wood and the bluing has worn in places. It does work as it should and the bore is in goos condition. One of the joys of these reliable rifles is that will happily cycle any make of .22LR ammunition and also deal with .22 Shorts, and even the tiny .22 shot shells.
CZ Model 452 .22LR Outfit
A classic reliable CZ Model 452 bolt action rifle. All in good shape and working properly. The barrel is screw cut for a moderator and still has the knurled thread cover. It comes with a metal 5 shot magazine and a metal 10 shot magazine. The scope is a Tasco World Class Plus 4x44. Leather sling
Rhoner Sportwaffen .22LR and 9mm Shotgun combination Gun
Made by Rhoner Sportwaffen in Weisbach in Germany this useful combination gun has the top barrel smooth bored for the 9mm Flobert or Garden Gun and the bottom rifled barrel for .22LR. A thumb operated catch breaks the gun and the hammer manually cocks the gun with a selector on the nose of the hammer determines which barrel will fire. The gun has not seen much use and is in very good condition with little more than handling marks. The barrel is cut at the breach end to accept scope mounts. A practical vermin gun.
BRNO CZ .22LR semi Auto with sight and Moderator
A BRNO CZ .22lr semi auto. The rifle is in a used but sound condition. The walnut stock has marks from use, but not appearing abused. The box magazine is present and it cycles sub sonics and high powers rounds reliably. It has a sling and a Bushmaster 3-9 x 40 telescopic sight fitted. It also has a moderator fitted, but this can be removed if you do not have a variation for one.
BSA Model No 8 .22LR Rifle
A classic .22 LR target rifle from the extensive range of BSA. The Model 8 was introduced in 1930 and has the narrow 1" action - usually referred to as a Martini, but actually a Francotte with the cocking indicator on the right hand side of the pivoting breech. This is a heavy barrelled version. The rear sight is a BSA aperture sight and the front sight a flip sight with a post or a aperture inside a tunnel guard. The bore of this rifle is good and the action is tight. It has a few marks on the barrel bluing and the stock, but nothing serious. The scratches on the lock are not very obvious and my flash photography has made them appear far more severe than they really are.
Marlin .22 Bolt Action Model 25N
A bolt action .22lr Marlin rifle. In a used but tidy and presentable condition. It has a removable 10 shot magazine, and is screw cut for a moderator.
Fabrique D'Armes St Eitenne RAF Model 52
A semi automatic RAF Model 52 .22LR from the French Armoury at St Eitenne. I cannot find out much about these French weapons. My guess is it is from the 1950s or 60s and that the RAF designation has noting to do with the Royal Air Force! It cycles well and shoots straight. The barrel is screw cut for a moderator and it come with a 4x32 scope of serviceable quality. The detachable magazine holds 10 rounds. An interesting vintage .22 worthy of a bit more research.
Ruger 10/22 Walnut Stock outfit
A Ruger 10/22 walnut stock fitted with a moderator and a Hawke 3-9 x 40 scope. All is in good condition and in proper working order cycling both subs and hi velocity ammunition. It has the standard 10 round Ruger magazine and also comes with a Bulter Creek "Banana" magazine for those who need to get more rounds down the range in a hurry!
Gustav Genshow Model 37 .22
Retailed by GECO in Berlin this rifle was made by Gustav Genshow who was based in Spandau, Berlin. This rifle was made under the direction of the Nazi officials who wanted a training rifle closely replicating the characteristics of the Mauser 98 service rifle. This one has a civilian or sporting style stock, and is marked "Export Model". The production of a sporting model and the labelling as export may be just political efforts show adherence to the international restriction supposed to prevent Germany from re arming. By 1939, when this rifle was made, such lip service would seem to have been unnecessary. The rifle has the standard Mauser rear sight, is in good general condition with a good bore. A useable and hand some classic .22 with an interesting history.
.22 LR "Mosin Nagant" Polish WZ M48 Trainer
An interesting .22LR rifle: made after World War Two as a training rifle for Polish recruits and reservists, it is closely based on the Mosin Nagant rifle - then the Polish service rifle. The only real differences being the calibre and the fact this is a single shot rifle without a magazine. This .22 model is slightly heavier than the original. This example was made in 1954 when the Cold War was very frosty and the mass conscript armies were a major part of the Warsaw Pact strategy. It comes with a canvas sling with leather attachments which are both supple. The bolt and the receiver have matching numbers.
FN Browning semi auto take down rifle
The classic .22 rim fire. Made in Belgium to a John Browning design these little rifles were first made in 1914 and were the first design of semi auto .22 rim fire. This examples is in good order and had a permanently fixed moderator (and is proofed as such). These little rifles are very well made and are a delight to use.
