When I was a kid my first .22 was a BSA Martini (Model 8 I believe). For some reason I can’t seem to post pictures right now. These were commonly used for cadet training around WWII. Foolishly traded it for a semi-auto years later, although the aperture sights would not work well anymore with these older eyes!
God save the Empire!

Hi Ed,

Used to have an FN Trombone which is a pump action .22lr.

And I do have a 3" heavy duck Winchester M12. 1955 I think.

Scrummy

Model 12



FN Trombone




And here's a comparison of the takedown between it and the SA-22 - maybe showing a change in thinking between the 2?


ATB,

Scrummy

My wife had a Browning 22 Grade II that I got for her.....we shot a lot of rabbits with it up in Wyoming. It had super fine sights...that was the gun that used to eject hot shells down the cuff of my sleeves!   Bucky

Good .22 ammo cost $0.80 or so per 50 rds, and i rarely missed.  I also got 3 hogs with it.  I kept the family supplied with meat for 4 years.  Must have  have been 800 rabbits or more. All of them cleaned and cut with a Swiss Army Knife that i still have. Wife cooked it in 100 different ways. When i left i cleaned and oiled the rifle and returned to owner.  Also sent many thank you cards to ranchers who allowed my shooting.  Some of them may be reading this. Thank you again and again.

I ate a lot of huevos rancheros in Lamesa years ago while working on a rig south of there....yummo...

Hi Ed,

Those SA-22s are great. Tempted to try and get another one. My father used one growning up in the Kalahari as a snake rifle. Nice and accurate.

If you're talking about the .22 Martini that looks and works like the Martini Henry, my brother has one. I've shot it, and it's a great rifle. I can't get my brother to trade with me for it.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.
