Let’s see all the .22 rimfires. Here’s my Henry small game carbine.
I have had that in my want list for a while
22m and 16” version plz!!
It’s really nice though it doesn’t like lead ammo, I’ve read that it may because I’m holding gun at a slight angle when working the lever.
Not liking “lead” ammo is a bad thing for a 22 RF!!!
It’s not often, but every once in the while it goes to jam. I haven’t bothered to call Henry because I think it’s something I’m doing wrong and it’s a simple fix and I mostly shoot Remington Goldens. I know Henry would deal with it if I called but I’ve made some memories with it, so I don’t want them just to replace it.
I love 22s.
If I could only have one gun it would be a 22. Seriously.
Which one? Oh man I dunno!!
Mine are all run of the mill. My 10/22 TD sees the most field use. But I think this year I'm going to switch it up a bit. I wanna hike more so it'll be a toss up on my little badger or my 22/45.
Love my 10/22's, one is my 1st 22 rifle from 40 years ago.
That said, this little Browning BL-22 is about as much fun as a man can have with his clothing on. Likely the same for a woman, unless she's married to me.
I shoot mostly shorts and CB's through it.
A little shooting from the back porch.
That’s a beautiful rifle. I’m kinda ashamed to admit it but I’ve never even held a 10/22 let alone shoot one. Though I happened to pick up a savage rascal the other day for my godson, the deal was too good to pass up even though he’s just 6 months old. I’m working on a basic survival kit in case he ever gets separated from his dad or me while roaming the woods.
I have a takedown 10/22 setup with the Magpul X22 stock, it's pretty cool. I like that it holds 3 magazines in the butt. Everyone should own one 10/22
Well I guess that’s one more gun to buy
My mission is complete for the night.
These are wonderful lil 22 lever rifles!!! I had a grade I since forever!!! It was one if the first rifles I bought for myself. It was used. I bought it with a paycheck I got the day before heading up to deer camp sometime about 1982.
I remember because that next morning I was headed up to the outhouse. (Of coarse I had the rifle!) and as I rounded the bushes... There sat a snowshoe! The ground was patched with snow so mother nature failed this poor guy. I had never fired the gun before. I took aim and fired and he simply tipped over as if a cardboard cutout. As I walked up he started the death tbrows but with a hole thru his noggin... it was all “nerves”... He went into the pot that night with the dinner stew!!
Stupidly I sold that rifle off sometime in the last thirty something years. But I inherited a Grade II just like yours and this one aint goin anywhere near a boat!!
Thanks for the memory!
Here’s a picture of the little squirt’s .22. I’m planning on making a paracord sling and putting the cut down Mylar blanket and a orange garbage bag in the sling to make room for some hi vis glow sticks and possibly a signaling mirror and some water purifying tablets. I’m also thinking about trying to make an extension for the stock using aluminum or stainless that can be used like pot or cup.
My S&W M&P 15-22...
My Ruger 10/22 is my favourite gun. I love it. We had a couple growing up and then by luck I came across an old one NIB and Ive slayed alot of critters with it. Great gun and its the standard by which I measure all carbines. Ive done a few simple yet functional mods and its a beast.
Best lever action .22LR ever made --- Marlin 39.
If I had a "grail" gun. It's a 39. Why I never bought one is beyond me.
With a peep sight. I don't think you'll find an nicer gun to carry.
Tube full of 22short HPs would be near perfect for a day of squirrel hunting.
I agree about the 39A. But I know why I never acquired one. They were high end for a .22 when I was young, and they're high end now!!
Too many grail guns...too little money!!
@slysir Yup! I think that was it. Money!!
Ehh, maybe one day it'll all fall into place
I had a nice 39. Pre rebounding hammer. Those are the ones I like best.
I also had a 39TDS. that too was a nice take down with its 16” bbl.
Many i really hate boats...
Nice rifle. But I’m curious as to what that animal is and is it tasty?
Looks like a possum.
what animal isn't tasty??
Between BBQ and crockpots we got it covered!!
I believe so. Brushtailed Possum.
Eta. New Zealand
Reminds me of pouldeau (that's coot for those outside LA) recipe.
Pluck bird, wash, sprinkle with salt/pepper/paprika, rub with butter, fill cavity with apples and onions and place on a cedar plank in 450 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and throw out the bird and eat the board.
It looks tastier than possums in the us that’s for sure.
You should see their women....
One of the few animals I can't bring myself to eat! Skunk too
I’ll eat a skunk way before a possum, last possum I killed smelled like it was rotting in the sun for 2 weeks right after I shot it.
I've had possum in a sauce piquant, same with nutria. But you could throw a bucket of aholes in a sauce piquant and it they would taste good.
My slightly tweaked 10/22.

This has got to be my next purchase. I almost bought one at the last local gun show I went to, but a Ruger PCC in 9mm caught my eye and came home with me instead.
I currently have a Ruger American bolt action and a Henry GoldenBoy lever in .22......both see a lot of use when we are at our rural property over the summers.
ETA: I also have the CMMG .22 conversion for one of my ARs......lots of fun for pennies per round!!
Older 10/22, walnut stock with an Olympic 20" sporter taper barrel, extended mag release, bolt release mod, aftermarket bolt buffer, 4X USA Weaver Rimfire. Shoots like a house-a-fire with Dynapoints and Winnie PowerPoints.
BL-22, cerakote and tung oil finish, Williams peep and Marbles ivory bead front. CCI Quiets for backyard varmints.
MK II Standard
Lost em all out of a canoe...
I’m sorry to hear that. It seems a lot of 22s are lost in boats.
They look alot like the possum
Pretty tasty xD
Winchester 74, last year grooved receiver.
My favorite, and very uncommon, Mossberg No. 51
And a very picky, but superbly accurate Marlin 88.
Here are a few of my favorite .22 rimfires along with meals they put in the pot.
Here's mine from the other "Let's see your .22s" thread.
#11 <-- LINK
Oops I didn’t see that
No foul, as far as I know. I used to admin/moderate other forums; if you merge posts someone gets angry, and if you leave multiple duplicate posts someone gets angry. As long as this forum has been around, I'm sure there are multiple "show us your [insert toy here]" threads, and I haven't seen anyone here get angry yet!
[EDIT] Pic added for thoroughness.
High Standard Model H-D Military from 1947, with 4.5" barrel (My father's bought in 1950)
Bottom one Ruger.
Ok thanks and that’s a beautiful pistol
Top is a .44 mag, second a .45.
Thanks, it is special because it was my Dad's. But the Trophy (in the linked thread post #11) makes this one pale by comparison.
Maybe but a family heirloom is always better in my eyes even if it’s beat up. They just have so much history.

I’ve often complained that most .22lr pistols are too big, clunky, awkward, and ugly.
But this one is just right.
It’s lightweight and slim, with a classic aesthetic appeal. Small, but not too small to shoot well. Here’s a size comparison with a Benchmade Griptilian.
It’s quickly becoming my favorite .22.
Then I have this old thing, a Ruger 22/45 mk3 that I’ve put a bazillion rounds through.
It’s killed more critters than all my other guns put together.
I use it all the time, but...I don’t really like it.
It’s heavy, and with the suppressor attached it’s long. It disassembles like one of those horseshoe-and-nails puzzles at the Cracker Barrel, and the trigger doesn’t reset right even after a trip back to the factory.
Oh well. I’ll just keep it strapped to my little tractor and I’ll just keep whacking rats and skunks with it till it gives out.
Firmly in the Marlin camp for semiautos. Doesn't need much out of the box, and DIP/MCARBO have you covered for the few things you might want to change.
My Model 60 will almost keep pace with my CZ 452. Maybe examples are out there, but I've never seen a factory 10/22 barrel do that.
Rifle with a group shot seated (!) & slung at 25 yards with CCI Standard (yes that's a called flier):
Not a great pic, but my 452 Varmint is probably my favorite rifle, not just my favorite .22 LR. I scrimped and saved as a broke kid out of college to buy it, and it 100% delivered. A rare instance where something in the gun world lived up to its billing.
Slapped a V16 on top, dropped in a Rifle Basix trigger, and the result was flat-out money. Made Rifleman at my very first Appleseed with it (shot a 220... last time out it was pushing 240).
