    Ive got a remington speed master that breaks down, model 241, for shorts only, can i replace the claw that holds the shell in, and get the barrel reemed out to .22 LR to convert it to this?

    Or is there a browning design like this for .22LR?

    Does anyone know how much this gun is worth in current configuration, it also has the shell catcher.

    There is the Browning Semi Auto 22. A beautiful piece, takedown, shoots shorts, longs and longrifles.

    .22 semiauto guns for shorts only are really different from .22LR only guns. Usually the whole bolt needs replacement, and definitely a few springs. That assumes it would feed .22LR through the receiver.

    22nd edition blue book says $250 for a 95% gun.

    Not sure how close that is to reality though, it's not real accurate on some things.

    I don't think I would try to modify it. Usually better and cheaper to sell that one and buy one you like that fits your needs.

    There is a Browning takedown in .22 and for a while the Chinese made a copy of it.

    Did remington ever make a .22 LR version of brownins design?

    Not that I'm aware of, however, not an expert in that AO.

    Also, im having a few FTE's. Is there an extractor, persay on these rifles, im guessing with age it may have to be replaced.

    Again, not sure about the extractor. Would think it has one. I had a Speedmaster once, but can't remember the extractor deal.

    However, usually the biggest thing I see with older .22's is that they are filthy. A good cleaning (if you haven't done that already) might be the best thing to do.

    yes, i just cleaned it throughly. I love how simple the action is on this. (Well, most all brownings designs are simple, but work :)

    Remington 241

    I used to own a 241 and it was a 22LR. Good little rifle. Someone wanted it worse than me and made me and offer I couldn't refuse, so she is long gone. The 24 and the 241 which followed were indeed John Browning designs with improvements by C.C. Loomis. I'm not sure what he added or changed as I have never owned the original Browning version of this design. Visually I don't recall any differences. I guess an exploded diagram of both would help here. By the way I got $375 for my 241 when I sold it about 4 years ago. It was about a 98% gun though for condition.
