.22 Pumps from long time storage

Picked up a couple of .22 pumps the other day. Both guns have mint bores and seem to be in unmolested condition. Thought I would post for members to view.

Road King
Real nice 22's. Shooting these old 22's with a hammer made it seem like you were back in the older days. (I was shooting these back in the mid 50's) The only thing more fun was shooting a model 63. They cycled so fast that it was like having a full auto 22.

Very nice Winchesters, and the bore condition make them all the better!

I don't think I've ever seen a rear sight quite like the one on the 1890...close but different. What type of sighting notch does it have and are there any markings on it?

A close up picture or two would be very interesting.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Looks like some nice .22s. The condition on the 22 WRF 1890 with a mint bore besides is really nice. The woodwork looks like it's in real good shape.

The rear sight is marked PAT. JAN. 1901

I take this sight to be a 30B. This gun was manufactured in 1907. The modification to these sights was made in 6/24/08 by cutting the longitudinally slot through the adjusting screw hole. ( The Sight Book - George Madis - page 88 )
The little washer has likely been added by a previous owner ❓

Serial number applied on April 29, 1907
Type: Rifle
Caliber: WRF
Received in warehouse on August 10, 1907
