Is a Tradewinds Husky 311A a Krico 302?



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently came across a Tradewinds Husky 311A, a detachable magazine bolt action repeater. Tradewinds imported the firearms that they sold and this one appears to be a Krico product, but I'm not sure what Krico model this rifle is based on.

I have been told that it is the same as the Krico 302, but all of the Krico 302s that I've seen have hogback style stocks and the 311A has a monte carlo style stock with a raised cheekpiece.

I'd appreciate anyone who knows Krico's product line and can clarify this for me.

Below is a rifle described as a Tradewinds Husky 311A.



It looks remarkably like the German-made Krico Model 302, which appears to have been made with several variations of stocks, some with Schnabel-style forestocks, some without, some with hogback buttstocks, some with more classic styling. The bolt also seems to have undergone a change, but I'm not sure if it was across the board for the sporting bolt action .22LRs.

Here's a Krico I had, which I believe was a Model 302.



And another with a stock of a different style.

Although I wouldn't extend a guess about what version of Krico it is...it certainly has many aspects that strongly suggest Krico heritage. Another possibility might be Vöere as there was a period in which Krico and Vöere seemed to cross over on a number of product lines.
