Any nice .22 lever gun would do, how about a Browning?

Yep, how about a used but in great condition Winchester 9422. Some would even opt for a used but in great condition Marlin 39a. Many might opt for a Henry but personally I can't stand pot metal. Check them out there are plenty used in great condition 22 lever guns.

Agreed, 100%.... gotta keep the nostalgia vibe going. A modern rifle would throw the balance right off!!!!

M41 S&W with Herrett's trainer 45 stocks. I've been shooting this almost daily the last 3 years.

I second the Winchester 9422. I bought this one with my paper route money circa 1978. Great rifle.

At this years SHOT Show I ordered a Geissele Mk18 rail. I had it coated Magpul FDE and then stuffed in my Compass Lake Engineering rimfire guts. The barrel is a Douglass or a Lilja with an old JET titanium integral suppressor. I have mainly been shooting my Vudoos lately, but sometimes a semi-auto is so much fun. And being able to toss it on my tri-pod anywhere is pretty cool as well.

S&B 3-20x50 in a Spuhr mount on top.

I also had the barrel modified to a "cone" breech face to give more room for gunk to go when shooting suppressed.

I searched for a 9422 for awhile, but all I found were ones that spent a lot of time being banged around and ill-treated, and yet people were still asking $700+ for them. I finally decided to take a chance on a pot-metal Henry, based on their low selling price and excellent reviews from other owners. I'm glad I did, because it certainly doesn't feel like a cheap pot-metal .22 when I shoot it. The action is as slick as snail snot, the trigger is crisp and the accuracy is excellent. For the money they are definitely worth it.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Great looking M41. Mine just returned from S&W from getting a tune and new slidestop. I havenít had a chance to shoot it yet due to weather and closed ranges because of covid 19.

Roddy Toyota did the stippling. He also installed the Kensight rear sight, Clark steel trigger and set it at 2.2 lbs. Great gun for the CMP .22 Distinguished Match.

.22

For a long time I pretty much ignored .22 lr weapons

My very first gun at the tender age of 20 was a S&W 422. The head of the local bureau of arms recommended it for a beginner. I never warmed up to it, and I traded it for a S&W 66 six months later; it didnít look like the pistols in the movies, was not pretty, didnít have an external hammer, and shooting .22s was unimpressive for the young guy looking for a thrill.



Only later did I realise that many .22s are very nice and well made, shooting them can be a lot of fun, itís obviously very cheap, and itís fantastic practice.

So ten years after the 422 (which I donít miss) I got a few .22s and enjoy them now

2002 - Beretta 87 target
A nice and simple sport .22, nicely balanced, great for target practice and plinking





1973 - Colt diamondback
Mini Python anyone ?





1990 - S&W 17-6
Bought this cheap at an auction, opening bid at $ 480, very precise revolver and great looks to boot





1922 - S&W perfected target pistol single shot
Another auction purchase on a whim, a very interesting gun

1968 - Beretta 950 b .22 short
Of all the guns I own, itís the only one from my birth year.
I wonder what that tells me ?





1979 - Colt service Model Ace
This one had some honest wear and an extended threaded barrel so it was reasonably priced at an LGS at $ 600. I already had the Parker-Hale silencer





1978 - Ruger Mk I target
I wanted a Mk Ruger with bull barrel for a long time, I ended up with two. I really like this one without the lawyers warning on the barrel





1990 - Ruger Mk II target
I had committed to buy this one from a private seller retiring from shooting, and won the mark I at an auction the same day. Oh well, they were cheap at $ 320 & 350

.22

Undated - Hšmmerli 215
Bought this in a package deal. The trigger is amazing and I thought Iíd practice one handed shooting but didnít have much trigger time since I got it just before the Covid-19 confinement





Undated - FN Browning trombone
A nice little NIB pump action rifle found in the attic of an acquaintance






1965 - Unique X51
I received this semi auto rifle from a friend who stopped shooting for health reasons. This was a very popular rifle in France, sold in department stores.





1992 - Ruger 10/22 shorty
The 10/22 is also very popular here in Switzerland. I bought it at an auction at the opening bid of $ 430, the silencer was included and that sealed the deal for me




Undated - SIG P210 conversion

Nice collection you have there.

Personally I see 22s as an important part of if not a fairly large part of my collection. I guess I'm just cheap but I always crack a bit of a smile when I arrive earlier and leave much later than those firing larger caliber munitions. By the way I maybe a bit cheap with some of the ammo but definitely not with my 22 guns. A great gun is a great gun and great guns can cost a bit more but they are more than worth it.

.22s are important because they allow super-cheap practice, plus when your accuracy with centerfire guns starts to suffer you can go back to the fundamentals with a rimfire and iron out acquired bad habits like flinching. I agree that .22 rimfire firearms aren't very exciting by themselves, since they are rarely ever used for anything other than recreational shooting and usually have little history to them. However they're still incredibly fun to shoot, especially when you're able to set up interesting targets that react to a hit.

If you get a chance, and if the grips fit somewhat well, try a Feinwerkbau AW93, a Pardini SP or a Matchguns MG2 if you'd like to see what the F1 versions of a 22 can do. The Hammerli 208/215 are prized for their triggers but the three pistols mentioned handle rapid fire better.

What sucks in the US is a Hammerli 208/215 sells used for $1.5 - $2K USD and in Europe they sell for less than an X-esse. (and then there are times when I spot a Sako Triace set on a European sales site...)

Then there are 50 meter pistols if you're willing to humble yourself. The 50 meter international target is a tough target.

Edit: Ever get a chance to shoot Field Shooting competitions? It sounds like a fun pistol format.
