Hello Daniel,

Can you provide clear close-up pictures of the various parts of the rifle?

Easiest way is to register so you can do it directly or email them to a member so they can be posted.

As a Guest on the WACA website, your only option is to post a link to a photo host website. We do this to eliminate Spam from being posted on the WACA website. All WACA members in good standing have full access to all features, and can directly post pictures and other files. You can send the pictures directly to me, and I will post them for you.

Hello,

I purchased the Model 56 serial number 510, what would like to know about it?

Hi Daniel, thanks for posting!  

Is your rifle chambered for .22 Short or .22 Long Rifle?

Does it have a receiver mounted peep sight or just the barrel mounted open sight?

Best Regards,

Great looking Model 56! I saw that one sell last month on Gunbroker and it was a deal in my opinion.

Thanks again for sharing.

Thank you very much for the photos, that is a great looking Model 56.  It is already in the survey as it was formerly owned by another WACA member.  I am glad it found a good home.

A question if I might, would you like information of rifles when I come across or see them on gun actions? Example, there is currently a very nice M56 #11629 with a Lyman 42 rear sight. Just let me know.

Thanks,

Daniel

Yes, please post any that you happen to find.  Is serial number 11639 a 22 Short, or a 22 Long Rifle?
