I can think of right now. Some more but need to reboot.
In tube-fed .22 Magnums I have a Kodiak 260, Rossi 59, and a couple of Winchester 275s.

My .22 Magnum rifle that gets the most use is a Marlin 982S with an old Leupold Vari-X IIc 2-7x28 installed. I prefer the 4-round magazines, as they fit nearly flush with the bottom of the stock and make for a better balanced one-handed carry than the 7-round magazines.

My adopted brother is a "back to the Earth" subsistence farmer, hunter, fisher, and gatherer in northwestern NH. The rifle that he carries constantly is a well worn Marlin 783S OR 883S, I can't remember which one, but it is the rifle that he uses most often to shoot muskrats, rabbits, and squirrels for food and varmints and predators that may be bothering his garden, orchard, or livestock. I think that he shoots Winchester/Olin ammo, but I don't know what style. I gave him some Fiocchi 40 grain JSPs back when rimfire ammo was hard to find, but he didn't care for it and horded his Winchester/Olin ammo.

Thanks guys! Unfortunately, you're making me want one of each and every one of them mentioned. Actually, that's not quite true. I don't think just one of each will do. LOL

Keep 'em coming!

henry

Henry pump in .22wmr.
Seems to like CCI HP+V and TNT the best.

Haven't tried any poly tipped ammo.

If I ever stumble across a NIB XT-22 tube fed magnum I'd snatch that up fast.

I have the same exact rifle - I love it.



I love tube fed guns, even if it isn't as quick to load as a mag fed. I always liked Henry's and other, mainly cause they look cool, but you can get larger capacity (I live in the peoples republic of Massachusetts) so I can only get a 10rd magazine... but mag tubes, hold a lot more. I have only shot CCI through mine yet, and not for accuracy...

After 18 years, I finally got a detachable magazine .22 rifle to add to my tube feds.

I do not think I will be adding many others.

I simply like the lines and balance of tube-fed more.

Also, I live in California, where tube-fed is the only way I can legally have more than 10 rounds in my firearm.


Bolt, Lever, Pump, Semi: I have one.
Rem 34, Marlin 39a, Rem 570, HighStandard 1041 [sears labeled].

I would like to get more, but can't shoot them enough to add siblings.


This inspired me to get a Remington 783 22mag and a Winchester 9422M. That is probably all I will do in 22mag in tube. [oh- and HK300 in detachable mag fed].

I have a Marlin 783 .22 magnum and love it. Bought it used in great shape for 125 dollars. The tube magazine leaves the bottom of the stock flat so much easier to carry when hunting.

Hey- do you notice any significant differences in the accuracy or trigger 'feel' between the 883 and the 783?

I have the 783 and like it, but was wondering about the 883.

Also, any idea what the weight of pull is on the 9422m?

I am picking one up later this month.


That will give me 2 tube-fed and one magazine fed [HK 300].

I haven't did any serious head to head testing on the 783 vs 883. I do think the 783 is a bit more accurate than the 883 using the cci ammo that I have . Trigger is better on the 883. I have no idea on the trigger pull poundage on the 9422m.

Not long before Taurus dropped their line of rimfire rifles, one of our LGS was selling the heck outta the Taurus pumps.
I picked up a model 72 stainless steel carbine.
The only plastic on it is the butt plate.
For a .22 mag its one the most accurate .22 mags Id seen.
They do some sort of counter bore crown that I think adds to its accuracy.
