Nice rifle. My check is in the mail.
I have my grandads 06. The stock has been repaired several times. It retains little bluing and looks like it was left outside all winter. It's accurate and cycles like butter.When I was a kid, a friend of mine's dad had a Winchester pump .22 rifle. It was a Winchester Model 1906. I shot it as much as he would let me and fell in love with it. They command some pretty serious prices these days. Henry makes a similar model, the Pump Action Octagon. They're not too expensive and seem like a well-made copy of the Winchester. They're no Winchester, but still pretty nice. I need to start a "Go Fund Me" account on account of I don't have any money to spend.

I've had Winchester 1890's and Model 62's, always traded em off for something else though. I have an old Rossi 62 carbine, works as well as a Winchester, but not very accurate, (maybe it's just the carbine...). They are fun and do have a purpose, I think I paid $175.00 for my Rossi NIB.Find one of the Rossi clones . Model 62. They work well .
If that bear shops there, I ain't going close to that place!There is a LGS that had a whole display of "used" Winchester rifles. At one point they must of had 20-30 on the racks. Anyways, it took some doing and here is a screen shot of that display. Not sure if these rifles are the 22 version you guys are speaking of but i remember them not being budget friendly. I need to stop in and see these guys again ... View attachment 198321
The main display rack is right behind the bears head.
I think the operative word would be he USED to shop there ...If that bear shops there, I ain't going close to that place!
