Dee My 60 year old marlin Golden 39A is one that has been around the tub.
I got it used several years ago to finally replace the one my grandpa had given me many years ago
. It was stolen about 6 months after he died.
I remember him cleaning it, and and his single shot shot gun the same way.

DEACONLLB I have my late uncles Remington 22 mod 6 that has been in the family for I know 80 years still shoots but has been well hunted, lots of Rabbits and other small game, helped feed the family during the great Depression. I can remember him cleaning it with a heavy cord tied to a piece of cloth and a hair pin tied to the string and a little cleaner on the cloth, drop the hair pin through the barrel and pull cloth through a couple of times in those days you made do with what you had because there was not much money for anything but food.

Rushcreek Very nice. The Winchester equivalent had impressed checkering IIRC. Thanks for the pics. You stole that one!

gemihur My Dad bought one very much like it from Sears in St.Louis, Mo. around '63.
Used to shoot it in the basement into a coal bin filled with boxes of newspapers.
I bought it's mechanical twin from a Western Auto in Roanoke, Va. around '81.
It was a Revelation 110 but built exactly the same mechanically, but with slight stock variation.
Our models have tubular magazines.
Always felt they were Marlin products, tho... could be mistaken.
They both shoot like a dream, even to this day.

pastorp Iíve got a JC Higgins, sears brand 22 bolt action rifle that my dad gave me when I was 14 years old. Mine was mfg by Mossberg and is very accurate. Itís the tube fed model. Guess daddy bought it for me in 1959. After thousands of rounds itís just like a extension of my arms.

Iíve owned a lot of more expensive 22 rifles. But for years I shot a brick of 22 Lr ammo through it every week. So I always seemed to shoot it the best of all my rifles.

bugeye I love the older rifles.
My own favorite is a model 511 Remington.

My wish, if I were younger, would be the sporting model 52 Winchester.

Interesting rifle. I'd say you got a very good deal on it!

Made from '67-'73. Mine must be a 1967 as it has no serial number. Only .22 I've seen with controlled round feed. It's pretty dang accurate so far. Been shooting "gumballs" in the back yard with subsonics.
