Winchester 1897 DoM 1910

He, & all others, I hope will stay away from M52s; the competition is already too strong for me.

My only .22s are Remingtons.  I did not think it polite to post them on a Winchester forum, but since you brought it up ...Wink

He’s already on the edge, Jeff! Don’t push him...looking at his R-words he would probably appreciate a good Model 69. 😉

Nice! 

Shhh....Don't tell anyone but I have a "R" 41P and 34 also.  We just need to lure you over to the dark side and get you hooked on Winchester .22s now.  As Mike suggested, a Model 69 might be a good start......

We'll leave the 52's to Clarence though, they are out of my price range....

My first gun was my father's M. 24, which I still have; an expensive .22 at the time, but not the best choice for most 10 or 11 yr olds; I wasn't "most."  However, it was a Short, so some years later I bought what I still think is the best designed of all the slide-action .22s, a M. 12.

Regarding Clarence and the Remington model 12, I've always had my eye on pump action 22s.  There is a live auction coming up near me with two model 61s and two model 62s.  They have model 12s also, but they have issues.  I might be inclined to bid on one now.  More on this in the rimfire forum.

Never had a problem with mine, & it was made before WWI.  For the price of a 61, you can buy 2, maybe 3, 12s!

No, I meant those particular model 12s in the auction have issues: heavy corrosion, broken wood, metal damage ...
