    I was in a gun shop yesterday that had a good condition Winchester 67 for about $170. Is that about right for one nowadays? Nice rifle.

    I cannot pass buy any kind of old 22 single shot without buying it. really like the old ones, have 2 old stevens favorites, Winchester 1904 and 67, Remington 510 and #2 rolling block, Anschutz 1361 garden rifle, and a few old wards western fields. these are some fun guns to shoot, real simple and very high quality for what they cost back then.

    I got this old savage single shot out of the junk pile at a pawn shop.
    But on line, some Savage collectors were impressed, as they are hard to find.

    Back around 1960 my grandfather was given a single shot 22LR as a thank you for your hard work by the local threshing crew. The thresher was replaced by a combine the following year. I now have the rifle. It's marked Hawthorne, Montgomery Wards, but it is a Colteer.

    A fine, vintage, Savage Model 3D from around 1949. Learned to shoot with it. Walnut and steel.

    Many memories,

    Looked at a Savage 120A in a shop today. Rifle looked new. Asking price is $100. I liked it and was surprised it was grooved for tip off mounts. It's one that has no safety, you have to pull back the cocking piece when you're ready to shoot.

    Anybody know about these?

    Wow! Thrashing(local pronunciation) gang in 1960. Was it steam yet, or belt off a tractor. In SE Michigan virtually every one was using either a pull type combine or a self propelled. My dad was using a 1956 Massey Harris SP80. That's what I learned on. It had be an Allis Chalmers pull type before that.

    Still like Winchester M-67, (keeping thread on track.....)

    ..............Picked up the Winchester M67A at a local indoor range for $225. It's in at least VG condition with a mirror bore. According to details, it was built in 1936. It has 2 common hiccups. It was D&T'd for a sidesaddle scope mount at some point, and the bolt handle was filed and polished to clear it. It is a very fine shooting rifle for what it is, and it's intended market. Quality was simply 'There' in those days, but $5 really WAS $5 in the 30's

    Nice rifle, those early stocks wernt as fat as the later ones. Do you have the cocking knob assembly, seems to be missing in the pictures?

    Years ago I bought my boys a Daisy .22 rimfire s/s. The buttstock is adjustable for LOP and it was scary accurate. I believe all of the boys possessed it at one time or another, handing it down as they got something different. The thing looks like a bolt action pellet rifle, plastic stock and all, but is a .22 rimfire.

    Anyone else have a Winchester M47, its a single shot version of the 69A. Last of the "fine old single shots" that Winchester did as field guns. My opinion ,FWIW anyway. Slick gun, full size and the safety is "automatic" , mine is a very good shooter.

    While not "old", my grandpa was gifted a Savage Cricket that was a little worse for wear. I took it home, stripped the crinkle finish, polished the rust spots and refinished it. Came with a nice set of peep sights and the bore was pretty good. He's happy with it. Pretty accurate for such a short rifle/odd fit for adults.

    I've a Mauser 'Trainer' .22LR that was a victim of Katrina. The finish was badly pitted, and the wood was mildewed black.
    I tried bleaching out the wood, even using some strong chlorine to no avail.
    I ended up bead blasting and parkerizing the metal, and coating the stock with truck bed liner.
    The bore is perfect, thanks to a neglectful owner who never cleaned it.
    It's a great shooter, capable of more accuracy than I can wring out of it.

    I just picked up a nice Winchester Model 67 this afternoon for $100 out the door. I shot it a little offhand at 25 yards this evening and it groups well, but high and right. I'll need to round up a taller front sight as the rear sight is as low as it can go, but that's easy enough. I like this little rifle.

    HA! Yes it does. This was the evening of the day I'd picked it up and had it all apart cleaning and checking it out. Wanted to get some pics, but wasn't ready to put it all back together yet.

    Both my 67s shoot hi with hv ammo. Both will shoot subsonics just above the front sight with the rear elevator removed. Put it in a safe place, they are sneeky and will hide from you

    100$ is a good buy, i gave 50 for one 15 years ago and 200$ for a pristine finger groove almost 10 years ago, good deal!
