I think you will enjoy shooting an 1885. One thing to remember, they are as bad as potato chips.. can't have just one! That is what happened to me!

not sure if Dakota will still make a 22Lr as the demand was very low in this caliber. The one I have was made when the founder was still alive. I also have one in 264 WinMag even earlier make. At this point I'm still trying to ascertain whether the RoundHill Group purchase of Remington long rifle factory also swept up Dakota. If anyone knows I would love to know the status of Dakota in Sturgis.
Thanks

I’ve talked to Dakota a few times in the past 4-5 weeks. They are working on a quote for me now. They have advised that the bankruptcy is impacting things right now though. Another dealer has several .22lr on order. I’m on their list as well.

But, who knows for sure.

This is one from Belgium.

It is from before the Great War.

I LOVE that handgun,,,

A matched pair of those nestled in a lined wood case,,,
Would make me so happy I'd probably wet myself.

A few of those were absolutely beautiful!

Thanks LtCrunch:

I'm an absolute sucker for boxed sets.

Well here you go. Post war Hammerli model 100 free pistol with original box, all the associated paperwork, and other accessories.






When you pick up one of these pistols, it's like putting on a glove, however no double handholds allowed:-)

I've never held a pistol with grips like that,,,

I've never held a pistol with grips like that,,,
I imagine it would either fit perfectly,,,
Or not fit well at all.

Thanks for posting it.

Well gentlemen, I might have to go in another direction.

Well gentlemen, I might have to go in another direction,,,
What that direction could be is anybody's guess at this time.

I have had three dealers scouring the entire nation for a new 1885 in .22 LR,,,
Apparently those guns are unavailable for who knows how long.

I was perusing the Henry website,,,
I got all excited about their new single-shots,,,
I even like break-open actions but they don't come in .22 LR.

Why would Henry not chamber a model for .22LR,,,
What are they smoking there in New Jersey?

But I'm in no hurry at all,,,
I still have that first stimulus check money tucked away.

One member suggested that I take one of my best or favorite rifles,,,
And then have Teddy Bear Rat make a custom stock for it.

If I were to do that there would be just one choice,,,
My es340B Mauser.

But still, that wouldn't completely satisfy the desire for something totally new.

Please keep posting those pics for me,,,
One of you might just show me the path to "The One".

I agree .
I too looked at the Henry single shots and was disappointed to find no rimfire offerings .
I’d love to have one of the brass Henry’s in a 22lr .

If you’re in no hurry, I would stay the course and continue the pursuit of the 1885. No reason to compromise now. I really believe you won’t find anything of comparable fit, finish, and build quality in a new rifle for the price. I say that with renewed conviction as I have been dismantling, stocking, machining, and closely examining the one I just rebarreled.

Ruger #1

If you like the beauty of a Ruger #1, send it off to Penrod Precision for conversion to 22LR. They are classic!

EABCo BF single shot pistol

These single shot pistols have caught my eye, you could buy a pair of them in
22 lr. I have heard they have a nice trigger and are very accurate.
