Not that these are bad or inferior cartridges,,,
Just not what I would have expected.

And,,,
Why no .22 LR?

There, fixed it for you.

And I'm guessing that the reason for those calibers is they are some of the more common conversion calibers for the original Henry and Cadet Martinis.

The rimmed cartridge comment is right on. It's possible to make an extractor for a rimless cartridge in a Martini, but it's much easier to do it with a rimmed cartridge.

My guess about why no 22lr version is that there are still lots of original 22 Martinis around in good shape.

You will have to wait for pix , but , it arrived today ! I am impressed . The quality of "fit and finish " is very good , and , it has a pretty stick of wood . More later .

They may not have 22LR listed as one of the available calibers on their website, but they do offer it. I ordered one with peep sights, side mount scope, 26in barrel, and upgraded wood. I had a hard time deciding between 22lr and 17hmr.

Any guess what the possible accuracy of one of these in .22lr might be?

Damko martini pictures

I have tried to post pictures here, but Photobucket is not cooperating. However, I have successfully uploaded pictures to ASSRA websight, rifle pictures . Please look. I think it is worth your time.

I use/prefer Imgur (https://imgur.com/). Photobucket has been nothing but problems for me for several years now.

If you want I can post the pics for you.

I would be very interested in a .22 LR model,,,

I would be very interested in a .22 LR model,,,
It could be the "retirement" rifle I have been looking for.

But I would want to see some verifiable accuracy tests before I bought one,,,
How sad would it be to spend 2-grand on a hand built rifle,,,
And not have it shoot any better than a $200 Savage.

Not to disparage anyone's personal choices of what to buy and how much to spend, but I firmly believe you'd be much better off getting an original BSA; either a 12/15 if you're looking for a lighter all-around rifle, or one of the Internationals if you want a heavy, pure target rifle. You'll get proven quality/accuracy at a fraction of the cost of the object of this thread.

What a beautiful rifle, I'm going to have to save my pennies. I now think that I "need" one of these.

That's a very handsome rifle. I would like to have one, but when I called to inquire, they told me that they were not offering a pistol grip and having to restock a gun you just bought new, along with bending the lever, is a bit more than I'd want to do. I am impressed with your end product and wish you the best with it.
