might have to see about joining that cult, going on the if a good one pops up list for me
They command some pretty crazy prices these days. This one belonged to my grandfather. Rear sight has been gone for a long time and I was never able to find a replacement. The rear sight rivet provides a decent aiming point though.
Maybe I'll snap a pic or two, if I remember to.
Yep. Still got mine, bought in mid--1960's in upstate NY on our way out to Colorado. Bolt rifle, detachable magazine, Short, Long, or Long Rifle.
I THINK mine was the Model 11, not the Model 66, which was a semiauto, but I haven't reviewed the model designations lately --like in the last twenty years.
Lifetime guarantee on the stock, could use another new stock, but I don't think anybody at Remington would remember these, let alone know where they're kept to honor the guarantee.
I remember being "inspected" by a Game Warden in the late 70s and him getting to be a bit aggressive ("felony,","Leavenworth," "N years," etc) about it not having a serial number..
He took it back to his truck and called HQ about it, finally, about ten minutes later, came back and was gracious about not knowing that those .22 pre-1968 rifles (and shotguns) did not require serial numbers.
My son shot a couple of mags out my buddy's FN FiveSeven too!
The non-22s were the Ruger Single Seven in 327 Mag and the S&W Model 66 357 Mag.
The Savage was in the bag, but we didn't shoot it.
Yep, a great day for .22s.
Love the Anschutz! One of these years I am going to get a running boar rifle like that .
Its a Anschutz 64 MS R walnut. A discontinued model that I saw in my Lgs a few years back. I traded in my old Brno CZ that was a great hunting rifle but too long and light for the running boar range and field target shooting. I'm very pleased with the Anschutz and it shoots CCI standard round really accurately. I liked the look of the Anschutz MPR first but when I handled one and then the MS the MS won.
Like the Remington 66
My cousin was given one by his neighborhood friend back in the mid 1960's.
Kids mother hated guns. Always remember that gun.
He and his sister would come up to our farm in Idaho in the summer. They lived in Los Angeles. Boy did they have fun on the farm.
At Walmart if you can find out when they get their deliveries and show up at that time you can ask if they got any ammo in and find out if some of it is 22lr. It may be hit and miss but if you have a Walmart close it may be a option to find cheap 22lr.
Recently I have a purchased 4 to 5000 rounds of 22lr this way in the last couple months.
Hope that helps!
Around here you can find 22lr @ $ .07/ round about half the time you go looking for it.
The problem now is you can only buy 1 box at a time ( but the "problem" is also the reason it is available....)
Hopefully the water will recede soon and you can get back out there.
I've been shooting a lot of .22s lately, actually sold almost all of my centerfires and gave up reloading.
Here's an example of my Black Mamba shooting from a rest at 25 yards. I like the accuracy.
Yep. It’s a Cricket. It belongs to my daughter, but I enjoy playing with it.
