Finally got the 72 to the range, awesome day for it! Funniest thing, this little rifle is a hoot to shoot and it really likes the cheapo Winchester 333 pack ammo. Groups of the cheap stuff are half the size of the groups it shoots with the Norma match ammo; now there’s a rifle after this old tightwad’s heart, lol. I could keep groups right around an inch @ fifty yards with the tiny semi-buckhorn sights, that’s about as good as my old eyes could shoot today. Took a few rounds to get the magazine feeding smoothly but now it works like a champ.
These Winchester 22’s will grow on you. Just ask JWA who has about 300 of them. I am just a rookie with about 50 of them. Big Larry

I don’t think my 22 collection will ever number 50, let alone 300 but they are indeed growing on me. Main draw is the much-needed economical trigger time with a quality rifle.
