    Is there a .22 single shot club yet? There seems to be several other "clubs" here but I haven't noticed one dedicated to the relaxing pastime of single shot rimfires.

    I get my old Remington model 14 and a box or two of CBs and head out back where my spinner targets are set up and I'm good for most of the afternoon.

    Does anyone else still enjoy the slow, easy and economical pace of .22 single shots?

    I have a Savage Model 17 Favorite. Not exactly my favorite, but it is a fun one to bring to "Rotten Egg" shoots. My kids like it.

    The Doc is out now. :cool:

    old Remington Targetmaster. Real fun for shooting gongs at 150 yards. Makes a nice little ding instead of the big clang you get when you hit it with something high powered.

    Of all the .22s my kids have shot, the 1904 is their favorite. They even prefer it over the 10/22. It doesn't get much simpler (or accurate) than that.

    I have an old Savage 24 that has .22 on top, .410 on the bottom. It was my granddad's rifle, year of manufacture is probably late '60s.


    Shoots surprisingly well, I enjoy it. Single shot doesn't bother me like it does some others. I don't take it out much though, since I consider it an heirloom.

    I gave my wife my Winchester Model 67A, and my kids have a savage cub. I personally between single shot 22s right now, but am looking for fill the void with a Remington Model 33 when a good one presents itself.

    There's some mighty purty rifles shown up in this thread. Y'all are making me want an old Stevens now.:cuss: and I'm playing like I'm trying to reduce my firearms inventory temporarily.;)

    This old 514 I have has a loose front sight that I use for "fining" it in depending on how I'm shooting on any given day.

    The ol' eyeballs ain't what they used to be even with spectacles and I have had to figure out how to accommodate. But it's real good cheap practice for your breathing and trigger functions when you're trying to spin that little quarter-sized hunk of metal that's a way out yonder.

    Especially when it makes you a little mad.:D

    But I sure love to shoot that old gun and I'm glad to see there's a bunch here who enjoy the old single shot .22s.

    BSA Martini Model 12/15!

    It arrived just a while ago from Thad Scott, and my first 5-shot group with iron sights at 50 yards could be covered with a penny (if you discount one called flier).

    Shoot, I forgot about my WZ-48 which is a darn accurate single shot 22 with standard velocity ammo. :)

    Can't believe I forgot that.

    Would love to see a single shot club. In the last couple of years I have been picking up 'vintage' 22 rifles, mostly repeaters, either clip fed or tube fed. But lately it seems that most have been single shots. Acouple weeks ago I kinda went through the gun safes and took a short inventory and here's what I came up with....

    Remington model 6
    Remington model 33
    Remington model 41A with a base for a Redfield 102 receiver site and globe front sight
    Remington model 41P
    Remington model 510
    Winchester model 1904 with the cresent buttstock
    Mossberg model 320K with S330 receiver sight and globe front sight
    Stevens model 26 crackshot in nickel (I think)
    CRUSO model CB
    * NEW addition, Mossberg Model B
    I have been keeping my eyes open for just the right Winchester model 60 or 67.

    I would love to have a scope on some of these oldies but goodies, but I keep finding them un-molested without extra holes in them. So far I haven't hunted with any of them, just punched paper at the vintage distances of 50 feet and 25 yards.

    may i? i just bought my niece her first .22. its a Savage model 3B. That 9 year old can pop cans with it at 30 yards first time she ever shot a gun. it saves me from an angry rattler that same day.

    Loner, let me talk to my father. Since the first rifle he came into contact with was my great uncle Tita's Stevens Marksman that I rebuilt, he's taken up collecting them. I'll get back to you shortly.

    Yep, Remington 510 here. That's the only .22 single I have currently, but I do normally single load my bolt actions. :)

    Added photos of Martini 12/15 to original post

    And before somebody else says it, "Yes, it was a real pain to find a fake penny that big." :)

    I would definately be interested in the club if it were formed. I have a Mossberg model 25A that is pretty awesome, I also have a Savage Anschutz Mark 10.

    PS: Loner you lucked into it with that Model B.
