Not mine, and not a rimfire... But a 22 Hornet conversion that Clint Meyer recently worked on... It's too nice not to share

That rifle is definitely a `keeper`, a lot of craftmanship has gone into the finished product.!!!

I may be wrong but I think this is a W.W.Greener as the take down lever is just like one that I have and also I can see the take down notch just above the take down lever and the bottom of the reciever is split to allow the reciever to release the barrel on removing the lever and allowing the barrel to be unscrewed from the action. This has got to be the most beautiful one of this type action I have ever seen.

Hi SillyMike's Rifle was in fact a rifle, an early non Francotte action small frame Greener which has been expertly refurbished. TJ.

Martini Mk X Left Hand

Pictures of my homemade lefthand Mk X. Not a real martini but might be interesting to some. Wayne
The cone breech works very well.






This is what this rig looks like now.

When I see a Martini action target rifle, I get aroused. I'll leave it there since there are TOS considerations with this family friendly site. Obtaining a nice .22 Martini is on my 'Bucket List'.

That is beyond a doubt the most beautiful Martini I have ever seen. I have two Martinis now, a Vickers 22 LR and a Cadet 218 Bee. I see the Cadet as a being like 22 Magnum for which I can make my own ammunition.

Szumi;
No link to my project. It was sort of design it as you go along type of thing. I've been a machinist for about 40 years so I can read blueprints but can't draw them. A long way from TBR's class when it comes to that sort of thing.

MARTINI SHOOTER;
I used a left hand trigger group and breech block I bought on ebay about 7 or 8 years ago thinking I would be able to find a left hand receiver. It has no serial #s on it and the mounting hole and pivot pin dimensions are about .035 different than my Mk III. I found that out the hard way. It was listed as a Mk II.
It has a Broughton 4C barrel. It shoots really well but no real way to tell for sure since the wind is usually blowing at least 5 mph or more and switching all the time. Looks like it will outshoot my Mk III.
