One of the hardest 22’s to find is a nice M1906. Considered a Boys Rifle, these are usually found with cracked stocks, no finish, and bad bores. I searched for a couple years to find one nice enough to put in my 22 collection. I found a real nice 95%er last year. It was an (06) model made from a M90 receiver. Couple months ago, I found another 95%er, a M1906 from 1909. These little rifles are really pretty in better conditions. Very well made, right down to the fancy buttplate screws. I really like mine. The newer one is very accurate, and I will get out soon to shoot the older one. Big Larry

I agree! The 06 was always a little harder to find, in any condition! Occasionally, you’d find a worn down one at a gun show. I got lucky yrs. ago on a couple, and one being an expert, with that custom looking slide handle. Like you said they were built pretty well!  

Just a cheap M1890, but could handle 22 S-L-LR which the M1890 could not do. Experts are very, very, hard to find. Big Larry
