Default Christmas came early!

An acquaintance I know through my motorcycle activities contacted me and said he had an old Westernfield .22 he had inherited but not being a gun guy didn't want and would give it to me free. Well what could I say except thank you! Appears to be about 90% condition. Based on the Savage Model 6.

Can't beat the price!

My dad had the Stevens version (forget the model number) of that rifle and killed a bunch of squirrels with it.

I've owned a couple of the Savage model 6's over the years and they're a good shooting gun.

Nice, I have one in 22 short only and it's a fun little rifle.

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.

This one says S-L-LR single shot Auto LR only. Weight wise I would not call it "little rifle". LOL!

No, they are beefy in size. I like the click-clack action. If you hold the trigger after a shot the bolt stays back until you release the trigger. Neat rifles. Some people complain about reliability but mine runs fine.

Cleaned it up, no rust but a lot of old gunk in the lower part of the receiver and barrel that was in the stock. Looks great! Finally got to shoot it today using CCI 40gr. solids. One failure to feed out of 75 shots.
The target shows that I still need to drift the sight a bit. It was shooting about two inches to the right so it appears I drifted it just a bit much. The pictures target is 15 shots offhand at 60'. Trigger is a good as my 76 Marlin 39A with a trigger job. I am pleased.
