    I used to buy and sell a lot of guns during the 90s but I do not at all consider myself a collector, rather a shooter on the search for the perfect gun.

    Even though I have accumulated a few guns, the ones that did not get sold had to have some special appeal to me. In general, I was looking for shootability. From that era of buying and selling is an old Marlin Papoose left over that I bought for $40 and found very accurate.

    Now that I am older, I choose my guns differently. I want traditional firearms of higher quality - and that from me who has a dozen unkosher Glocks!

    Finding quality firearms on a budget can be quite a challenge but then, if it is a rimfire, the cheaper ammo will make up for the purchase price. Or so do I justify it. Since I had no luck so far in finding a Hämmerli 212, I fixed my frustration with the purchase of a nice 1974 Anschütz 54 Match rifle. The stock shows nice grain and the metal is 98%, the trigger amazing and the accuracy outstanding!

    Quite different from the "tactical twentytwos" that the crowd is after. Are there more guys like me on this forum?

    Come on, show off your best traditional .22s!

    Yes, they qualify.

    Those Rugers are nice. I skipped a 77/22 around 1993 and got a Winchester 9422 XTR that I sold later, I should have gotten the 77/22 instead!

    From when is your 10/22? It seems to have a walnut stock. Mine is an old one with walnut stock and aluminium buttplate but the stock is refinished. But hey, I paid only $50 for it and it works well now.

    Nice guns, Salvo.

    I want to post a pic of the Hämmerli 230. It is chambered in .22 short and is rather "sports equipment" than a weapon but it does shoot unbelievably smooth!

    It's from 1977. It's a factory DSP, or Delux Sporter. The difference is in the checkered walnut stock mostly. I've got a couple others, but that's the nicest looking one of the group.

    I'll toss in a pretty nice handgun too. Nothing really special, but nice.

    1971 Smith & Wesson Model 17-3.

    Clem,

    the quality of the rifle is displayed in the 100 yard group! I consider it great.

    Salvo,

    the Anschütz Exemplar got me thinking. How does it shoot?

    Nice target pistols, Deadite, but do you also have .22 plinkers?

    It's a tack driver PzGren, shot the first of many 40x40 scores when I shot IHMSA.

    Here's a couple more .22's

    bcvojak,

    are those M1 carbines in .30 carbine?

    Salvo,

    the Buckmark looks like another serious target shooting machine!

    My highest quality handgun, and favorite shooter, happens to be a .22; my beloved 1969 Korth:

    A couple more nice revolvers I suppose.

    Dan Wesson 22. Year unknown, but it's a Monson, Mass. gun.

    [​IMG]

    Colt Frontier Scout, convertable, from 1967. It's been fired, but not much.

    [​IMG]

    I'll add this one, just because I like it. It's not a fancy gun, it's actually a "boys rifle" but I wanted one when I was a kid and never got one until a couple of years ago. This one is as nice an example as I've ever seen.

    Ithaca 49, falling block Single shot. (The magazine tube is fake.) When I was a kid they sold these at Sears and Roebuck for I think for less than $50.00 bucks, but my mother was scared to death of a rifle so I never one. Shotguns were ok, but no rifles.

    Probably my two most accurate .22 pistols, although my Ruger MkII 10" and Browning Medalist are right up there as well.

    Mine didn't start quality.. it was the cheapest .22 at the store. It's getting there slowly.

    Ruger MkIII 22/45
    -Pac-Lite 4.5" Threaded Receiver
    -Pac-Lite Compensator
    -Clark Hammer Bushing (removes magazine disconnect)
    -Volquartsen Target Sear
    -Wolff Firing Pin Spring
    -Wolff Reduced Power Trigger Spring

    I have these parts that haven't installed them yet:
    Clark Target Trigger
    Volquartsen Exact Extractor

    Maybe one of these days I'll add a can.

    Nice guns, gents! Morgo, where's your 622?

    I only have a blued Single Six, Ruger 10/22 and MKIII 22/45.

    Well, the GSG-5 and the Henry H01 and grandpas old Winchester 72.

    I love .22's!
