What Year Is Your Rommy Marked?

If I've got the location (behind the rear sight) for the manufacture date of my Rommy correct, it was manufactured in 1971 and does decock when the trigger is held back while closing the bolt.

Every thing is excellent on it.

I'm not sure about the spiral barrel - it's, um, unique, maybe turned on a coarse set lathe? - but the barrel is in prime condition as is the rest of the rifle.

I say I got lucky.

I think mine is dated 1985 and decocks as described above as well. I mounted a old Weaver V22 (2-6x) 7/8" tube scope on it - its good to go. Here is a picture, along with a Brno 468 .22lr single shot.


I think for the price, the M69 is hard to beat. :t

Mine is stamped 1972. I have a Tasco 3-9X32 scope on it.

How is that Tasco working on yours? Any mods to the rings? I've read a lot of negative stuff about Tasco of late, and I held off buying that very same 'scope you have.

Yes I had to modify the rings to fit the dovetail. I haven't had any problems with the scope. I made a mistake on the brand, it is a Daisey Powerline scope (probably still made by Tasco??) Here is a link to show how I modified the rings, it's the fourth post.

Mines a 87 model. To me for the $$$ best shooting 22 made for its class.
