I didn't see this until today-I got a Savage model 23A Sporter a week or so ago, and I'm going to the MAAC show here in Mich. tomorrow-I should be walking out of there with some kind of .22-I have my heart set on a Winchester 52, or a Remington 37.

I would like one in SS, on a proper walnut stock, with 18.5 or 20 inch barrel.
I'm not one who likes to tinker and do all the mods myself. I prefer to just buy it done already. I figure to buy one, then do all the mods to it, I would be in to it for almost $800. I expect I can buy one done fairly close to how I want for around $500.
There's one on gunbroker right now that is about a 9 outta 10 on my personal want scale. I might just buy it, change the couple of things I want and call it good, but I'm in no rush. Shopping is half the fun.

Glad to see this livened up. The only trouble is, I want to buy something now.

Hey! I have one of these! I wish I could find original sights for it. Mine has a period-correct weaver scope on it. Cool, but not as fun to shoot really. My grandpa gave it to me, said my great grandpa bought it new. My dad shot it a lot as a kid.

The original rear sights are rare and expensive-someone long ago put a Redfield peep sight on mine,and so it will probably stay. One interesting thing about these '20s-'30s vintage Savages is that the barrel and receiver are all one piece,making them very accurate rifles.

Here are a couple more of mine. The first one is kind of cheating. It was born a .45 Colt Combat Comander but I have the Kimber .22 conversion on it right now.



And this is my Remington Fieldmaster 572 it is a great game getter. I've always liked the way the old remington .22's looked and felt Sorry about the crappy pics.My gun room is also my game room not the best lighting for pictures.

I have the same rifle without the checkering. Love it. Bought it new back in the early 70's. Shoots very accurately with open sights.

The remington iron sights I always thought were the best with the "ball" on the top like on these and the speedmaster autos.

I won't torture you with a pic of my vintage Tornado fooseball table. Actually I would if it didn't have shit pilled on top of it because moving stuff around. come down South and I bet a nickle I'll win.

Anyone know anything about this little guy? A rancher gave it to me about 20 years ago for trapping some coyotes off of his land. It is what my little boy shoots now. It is a single shot lever action. Looks to be cheap made so probably not worth anything. Still a neat little gun I use it for shooting shorts around the house. It says Agwam arms made in USA on the barrel.

Ruger 22/45 MkIII

Got this last week. Going out tomorrow to give it a go. Really like the Marlin 917VST, but wanted a pistol. Anyone done anything with the sights on Ruger? They're just plain black, anything to bring out the forward sight (visibility wise)?

I've used white fingernail polish on a lot of my working guns. Not pretty put it works and it is not permanant.
