Early 1423


later 1423, still pre-1958



1422



another 1422



at the bottom is a picture of the 1420



What a great opportunity to show of my lovely ladies!
Wow! That's an amazing collection, I didn't even know they made them in a fullstock. The second is a wmr? I am truly envious

The gun was like new, I got it the same day it was put up for sale, I shouldn't feel guilty because they set the price but still.....
Here's an interesting aside, I believe the quality is slightly better on the 1422's than on the current 1712's. When I shot groups with it last summer it clearly grouped better than my 1712 {2003} as well as several others at the range that day.
I can't even begin to keep up with all of the 14XX. I am partial to the older guns though. They just seem to be made better IMO.
I really appreciate the pictures though. I love to see all of those straight tubes it just goes with the sporter look. The rifle I had bought was owned by an old man that took it on safaris all over the world. It was a special gun and even with the 2 3/4 power redfield it would outshoot anything I've ever touched. I don't deal with bench guns though they just aren't my niche.

The first gun is a 1712, I just put the McMillian stock on it last week and bedded the action. The light is bad in the picture but it's one of those McWoody stocks with the simulated grain, yea I know synthetic stocks have no soul but the gun is specifically for silhouette and is basically a tool, I don't want to worry about a wood stock. It's hard to explain but if you shoot a gun alot in competition you almost forget that it's a gun because it's like an extension of yourself. After a while it's your performance i.e. score is what matters, the gun is a distant second, after all the gun racks are full of 1712's at silhouette matchs, no one is impressed.

Oops, you were not talking to me.

That's a thing of beauty. If I didn't have a big mechanics bill coming it'd be on its way to my FFL.

You have that set up really nice. That's a very pretty piece of wood she's wearing. I'm sure it shoots as good as it looks.

Those are all .22 l.r. I still have to get a .22 Mag and a .22 Hornet eventually. The fullstocked 1423s with the 54 action are very rare. There are two other members here that have one and one of them is from France.

My first 54 actioned Annie was a German military training rifle. I had shot one in the service and when I found one for sale, sentiments took over and I bought it.

Next was the 1423 with the reddish stock. It probably will only end when the funds are all depleted.

Blame it all on this rifle:

I paid $1200, 1000 and 900 respectively for my three, don't feel bad about a penny of it, two were NIB and one well treated, the blond having been professionally refinished. As you see there is a lot of variety in the 54 sported line up over the years, some beauties shown here.
