I would think for sure it's a Remington 522 Viper. It was just plain silly to even insert a magazine in the hope the gun would fire more than once.Can any one guess which 22LR I am referring to?
It was my 1st gun at age 11 and you can still drive tacks with it.
Sounds like it might be easier to load , the H&R is easy after you learn to tilt and lean it just right and they fall in but have owned it since the mid 60's so I've had a little practice.I used to have a Winchester Model 55, 22 LR Rifle that was a "single shot automatic" ... not to be confused with the lever action centerfire Mod 55. You manually inserted one cartridge in the chamber then after the cartridge was fired, it would automatically eject the spent case out of the bottom of the receiver. The top of the receiver had a spring loaded hinge plate that served as the manual loading mechanism.
They were nice rifles and you're right about being tack drivers. After all the years, yours has held it's age quite well.My thread is a little misleading the gun is a Harrington and Richardson model 760 it is a single shot with auto eject, don't see that very often as a matter of fact its the only one I have ever seen. Has a beautiful walnut stock it is a youth model. That gun has killed more squirrels and was always the favorite gun to carry by everyone in my family because it is so lite and easy/accurate. I will try and figure out how to post a picture.
