    Poking around in the gunroom and saw it sitting there. Three generations of my family learned to shoot on that little rifle. Now shes all worn out with not a bit of rifling left and pitted metal. Lots of good memories with that one. Wouldnt sell it for a million though. Anybody else have an heirloom rimfire they love?

    I looked mine up online it seems it was made in 1938 IIRC. Grandfather bought it at a hardware store I remember him telling me that. Wish it could talk!

    Another Remington Model 41 Targetmaster :)

    Plus a Remington 550-1 tube-fed semi that shoots shorts, longs, and long rifle.

    I have a 1909 Remmy model 12 from my grandad.

    It's lovely and shoots well. Will never get rid of it.

    I've got a 41 Targetmaster I would love to shoot but it's missing the bolt.

    How do you like that rifle? I've always shot Marlin tube autos but that Rem 550 always looked good to me. I wondered how it handled shorts.

    I'm starting a tradition... at least I hope so anyways. My mother never was one for guns, took my BB gun away when I was 16 actually. So I'm hoping to pass along a few classics to my son. Mosin Sniper, M1 carbine, M1 Garand, etc. He'll have a henry 22 at some point to hold on to as well once he gets a bit older. Hard to wait but the little guy just turns one next week so it'll be just a bit.

    Remington M34 that was my grandfather`s. Frosty bore with 2 rings, no bluing left, stock in decent shape. I`ve killed a ton of squirrels with it, lol

    If anyone is near Hickory, I`ve got a 41 on consignment at Ledford`s Trading Post, and he just got a beautiful 41-P in today.......

    I've got an old Winchester Model 62A pump action that was my grandfathers, and then my fathers. It became mine when my father passed. Not a bit of bluing left on it, and most of the metal is pitted. But the internals are clean, and the bore is good. Grandpa kept it in the barn for shooting rats, hunting squirrels, and teaching his boys how to shoot.

    Also have the K98 Mauser and Luger that my Great Uncle brought back from Germany during WW2. Neither is for sale.

    Have my father's Thompson contender pistol, with 22 and 357 barrels, and his his winchester 30-30. Its an odd model, with flip-up tang sight, 24" barrel, and a hooked metal buttplate. It took me ages to actually shoot it because I was terrified I'd put a mark on it. Dad kept it perfect. Even today, when I hold it, I don't feel like I'm handling one of my guns, I feel like a little boy, getting to handle my dad's rifle. I feel his presence every time I touch it.

    I actually like it a lot. I am debating refinishing the stock. The sights are peep sights; I'm fixing to turn 50, so they are starting to be harder to use. having a 24" barrel helps, though. A shallow grooved dovetail is on there in case it gets too bad :)

    Disassembly and reassembly for full cleaning of the floating chamber can be challenging, but it is not much more so than the Marlin 60. I have one of those too.

    This particular one handles everything fine. I have not had longs to put in it, but I have put a box of shorts through it with no issues. I have not yet mixed the two in the magazine. I inherited this rifle from my grand-dad, and shot it without a detailed cleaning...and the shorts cycled fine. I was surprised by my accuracy with it :D I think it's great.

    Oh, and shorts are VERY quiet out of a 24" barrel...

    I have a target master, killed numerous groundhogs with it. all f a sudden last year started not firing, it snaps but sounds weak. I just put it in the closet dad gave it to me many years ago.

    Have you cleaned the bolt?
    It may be full of crud stopping the firing pin.
    Or the firing pin may be worn down or broke.

    I'll post up for a friend/co-worker. He allowed me to clean his grandfathers Winchester model 67 single shot bolt action rifle. The bore was/is clean with good rifling, with a few small spots of bluing starting to wear through, and the stock has some handling marks (which it should for a 1935-36 era shooter). He brought it out during a recent time at a friends house. It's still has a smooth trigger, and is a very capable shooter.

    Later, T.J.
