IMO , some CZís are beautiful Guns .
I just recently picked up a 457 Lux in 22 magnum . Even though the stock isnít as nice the 457 Lux in 22lr I bought last year , itís still a beautiful rifle .
The lines and shape are a piece of art .
And they can be made into a single shot with a magazine adapter .

Single action revolvers are pieces of art too . Ruger Single Sixes , and Ubertis.

Iíve seen and handled quite a few. Nice rifles. The company that made them was in the Atlanta area. I was going to buy one in a .22 centerfire (like the CCM) that never materialized. They were bought out by Dayton Traister. DT advertised the Varner but never produced any rifles to my knowledge. Iíve seen them from time to time at reasonable prices for the Hunter versions.

.22 Westley-Richards Single-shot Rifle

Hi there,

I posted this link a few hours ago on this forum, but thought it should be posted here, too: https://www.theexplora.com/a-very-ra...in-22-rimfire/

As the old expression goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so it will be a very subjective thing, especially in firearms, but my vote for most beautiful single shot will go to the Dakota Model 10. Severely elegant and extremely rakish in lines, there are no visible pins or screws in the action. This, my second, is still in process, as I bought it as a .17 HMR barreled action years ago, made and then screwed up a stock for it, decided to have Dakota do the initial inlet and shaping work on the next stock, and it remains in this state. Every mating surface is still proud of the steel by at least an 1/8", but inletting was perfect as it came from Dakota.

The stock is made from a black walnut Bastogne blank I bought very wet many years ago and set aside to dry and stabilize. Most Bastogne is a cross of claro and English walnut, usually found growing where English walnut trees were grafted to native California claro walnut trees decades ago in that state, but a black walnut/English walnut cross somehow emerged and survived to produce this blank. Very rarified wood.

I have tried, and tried, and tried to photograph the beauty in this wood, but I just cannot reproduce in a photo the color, the contrasting mineral streaking, and the deep and vibrant fiddle back that is so clear in person with the naked eye. Outside, inside, flash, no flash, in direct sun light, in shade, at every possible angle this blank is just camera shy. Part of it may be the as-machined roughness in the wood obscuring to the camera its beauty. The second pic is probably closest to how it appears to me in person but still falls far short of its real beauty...strangest thing in the world :
M10 Bastogne 1.jpg

M10 Bastogne 7.jpg

M10 Bastogne 3.jpg

M10 Bastogne 4.jpg

M10 Bastogne 5.jpg

I probably would never buy a new one from Dakota, given its current price, but I have much less than half the price of a plain-Jane new one in each of mine, one bought as a barreled action, as mentioned, the other a very well-worn .35 Whelen I grabbed for a relative song that I just rebarreled to .218 Bee and reblued.

Anyway, the Dakota Model 10 is my pick, and I'm sticking to it.

TBR

A few more attempts. Each pic shows some elements, but none shows them all:

M10 Bastogne 6.jpg

While I've never seen a Dakota Model 10, I agree (from the pictures and reputation) this is the top of the heap for me. I'm waiting on one to become available in .22LR.

Those pictures are enough to show me that you have a truly beautiful piece of wood. Please post some pics of it here when you are finished.

What is the function of the double triggers I see on some of these single shot rifles?

On muzzleloaders I've owned the front trigger is a set trigger, it is pulled to set the back trigger. Then the back trigger fires the round with a much lighter pull.

Itís usually the other way around, and the rear finger piece sets the front, but there are exceptions. The front can usually be used as a normal non-set trigger.

It will probably be the Winchester 1885 .22 LR Hunter,,,

Yep, so far that's my first preference.

Buds had one two days before I decided on it,,,
I went back with the MasterCard in hand,,,
The dang thing had already been sold.

So I'm in limbo waiting for a gun made of unobtanium.

One good thing tough,,,
I met a man at my rifle-pistol club who owns one.

We are going to find a time when we can meet at the range,,,
He's graciously offered to let me shoot his rifle.

Our range is closed for major berm work all this week,,,
But as soon as we can get together I'll get to "sample" his rifle.

Until then I'm just sitting on the allotted money.
