Two new rifles

Postby Once a Marine....... » Fri Jun 13, 2014 7:37 pm

I picked up two vintage .22 rifles today for a song.
One is a Remington model 550-1 (1956) and the other is a Winchester model 69A (late 30's early 40's)..... both have nice Weaver B4 scopes. :thumbs up:

A lot of people think "old" guns are not as good as new ones.

When in reality, the old saying "they don't build them like they used to" can usually be applied liberally.

I geek for .22s, roughly half of my guns are .22s and most of them are old.
