Suggestions for a rimfire ?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Well awhile back I got an 1885 Browning 45/70 and now Im thinking a simular rolling block rimfire with octagon barrel would be sweet. I liked my small bore muzzleloaders but cleaning them stinks. So a nice little single shot rimfire would be great for squirrels and plinking.Any ideas without costing a fortune ? Anyone even make one ? Thanks.

In recent years Winchester has been turning out low-wall 1885's in rimfire calibers. You might check Gunbroker.com or one of the other auction sites to find one.

Thanks Red Pepper,I just looked and yikes $1,000+ for a rimfire is a bit more than I wanted to spend. Maybe one of those Uberti's or something will be cheaper. I'll keep my eyes open for used ones too.

It is quite a bit of money to spend on a firearm designed to shoot $.03/round ammo! :-)

My 10/22 was $1600. Built it myself out of the best components to be had. I'm so proud of it, I never shoot it...

My Uberti single shot .22rf was 695.00 in Alaska. If it is for you or older teen aged person you might want to look at the Winchester for the weight. Mine has a 131/2" LOP, so too big for the little folks, but the barrel is very light and quick handling. It is very accurate, but suspect the buckhorn sights are a handicap compared to the Win Low Wall. If I had a do over it would be the low wall Win.
I forgot that the Uberti is a baby Rolling Block.

While not a rolling block, I really like my Stevens/Savage falling block .22. Fun super light and great learner for kids and ladies. Started my wife and daughters out with it. At my dealer from Davidson's it's $342 out the door tax and delivered. 8)
