I have a Stevens Model 30 with a full octagon barrel in 22 LR. It is a great "grab and go" rimfire. I put a piece of universal scope mount on it with a 4X scope on it so I can see the target. I had the twin to it in 22 Mag, regret selling it.

I really like everything about my Savage Rascal except the LOP. I lack the skill to make a longer one, but I keep it around hoping I'll figure something out.

I've always had a thing for the highwalls and lowwalls. I don't own any originals but have a few Miroku made Brownings and Winchesters. One of my favorites is a B78 I've had about 32 years with a heavy round 26 inch barrel in 22-250 with a fixed 12X Leupold. If you can see a groundhog, he is pretty much yours. For rimfires I have a Winchester lowwall that I think was made around 1999. It has a very heavy half round half octagonal barrel. I just had to remove a beautiful buckhorn rear sight and mount a scope due to old eyes. I have a lowwall in 17 HMR with a case colored receiver that is just a beauty. The highwalls and lowwalls have a unique and quality feel to them that for me is just awesome! Hell, they even feel good just carrying them.

Limbsaver slip-on pad will do the trick.

They don't make one that's small enough for the Rascal stock and 4" thick. I'm thinking maybe some creative JB weld, arrow shafts, and dreams. Or finding a friend with a 3D printer.

Dad gave me a Remington 33 when I was 11, he had bought it in the 30's used for $3. That was 55 years ago this year.
No telling how many critters I have shot with that gun, so I would have to choose a Remington 33.

Some fine single-shots being shown here,,,

Some fine single-shots (SS's) being shown here,,,
I think most people believe that SS's are cheap intro level guns.

Granted, a lot of them are,,,
Even I was somewhat surprised to find out,,,
Most (or is it just many?) of the high-dollar precision rifles are SS's.

At one time I was considering buying a high-dollar precision SS,,,
But I finally decided that at my age with my poor eyesight,,,
I probably won't approach the limits of the ones I own.

So, I'll just keep plugging away with my Henry,,,
I don't think I've even approached it's accuracy limit.

This spring though,,,
My WZ-48 and my Mauser will get a good workout.

Nice guns! I have 6 Ballards in .22RF, and love them! Have a Stevens 49 Walnut Hill on the 44 frame also, and in .22RF too. It's a sweet shooting gun, and factory engraved. But it may have to go soon. Got a lead on a Pope Ballard, and I'm guessing the blood letting will force me to sell some others I love!

It's a shame to hear that you may need to let the 44 go. I may know someone who might be interested

i would love see that Walnut Hill in a picture here on this thread.
My good friend use to collect them pre WW-2 German Schuetzen single shot .22 Rf target rifles & 8.15 X 46R lead bullet CF target rifles.

I would have to say my Swindelhurst is my favorite of the single shot 22 rimfires I own, it may not be the most accurite or the prettiest but it sure is smooth and easy to load. After that it would be a toss up between several others. My 52D's are a bunch of fun, but so are my Anschutz and Suhls. When my grandson is out to play its all about the old Ithaca 49 that by the way was also my sons first rifle, so there's a real soft spot in my heart for that one.

My favorite general purpose single shot rimfire is my Model 12/15 Martini. Superbly accurate, great trigger pull and easy to handle since I shortened the barrel to 22 inches and installed a scope. With that said, I still think Ruger missed a bet by not bringing out their No. 1 or No.3 in rimfire.
