Well yesterday a neighbor called to ask if I wanted to look at a rifle her late husband had. Of course I said I'd be right over, she directs me to the back bedroom and under the bed I spot a black leather case. I pull it out and unzip the case, a beautiful rifle is in my hands. I start to look it over and see Weatherby on the side with the XXII. I still not sure what I'm looking at until I pull the bolt back and see it's a 22LR. It is wearing a Leupold gold ring scope has 2-10rd & 1-5rd mag with it. I'm standing their looking this rifle over when she come back into the room with a box it has a Weaver marksman 4x scope in it that looks new, 2 cleaning kits, 2 sets of Jay Scott custom Ruger SA grips and a bag of SA parts. She has a slip of paper with $100.00 - $150.00 on it, said she spoke to someone and they said that was a fair price. She asked if I wanted it first, I gave her 160.00 for the lot.
Have done some checking on the rifle and the serial #J-335XX seem to indicate a 1967/68 Japan build. Anyone know of these, are they shooter's. Stopped to buy some 22LR this morning at wally world, no dice. Wont be able to shoot it til this week end. Any thought's men?
