Nice! I've been looking for a Rem40XHB to convert to a tactical trainer to complement my Rem700, but maybe I should do the same thing to the Rem513T I already own...

That one looks quite special, how did you rebarrel it and how does it perform?

Spare me no detail...

A couple of mine

This is my first visit to this site in some time and I'm pleased to see a military trainer forum. I think it was long overdue.
Pattern 14 No.2, almost identical to the later No.2 Mk.IV*. John Wilkes sight forward and a funky folding Parker 9G aft because I can't see open sights any more. Also a Brit. No.7 cobbled together from spare parts and a repro scope mount with an old Weaver. This one is on duty by the kitchen door all summer for backyard pest control.

I think I may need to read up on picture sizing or something.

ive never taken 'separate photos' of my trainers so please forgive the centerfires they were designed to train for being included here , i must one day shoot a new sequence -

the second from the top is a 1945 canadian Cno7 22cal




the top one here is a 1944 canadian cooey M82 , it has both a rear ramp sight and a rear peep sight [please excuse the scope i put on it]




the middle one is a 1910 BSA mkIII converted to a no2 mkIV 22 trainer in 1921-26 ,




the bottom one is a shortened 1892 magazine lee metford mkII converted in 1912 to a Cond II 22 trainer for the navy



this is a webley mkVI [would have been a 455 - unlike the mkIV i see posted above that would have been a 380 ] 6 shot 22 cal trainer ,







while not officialy a trainer this is a 1967-69 M16 [in semi auto] with 22 cal conversion unit ,




and this is a conversion to 22cal i did to my M1903A3-4gery with a custom made insert and M22 bolt ,







and another of the winder muskets , US marked 22 cal trainer low wall winchester ,

Take care,
Rob

Because it's stamped M1922 on top of the receiver..but it's been modified because it's also marked MII next to M1922

JoeFriday,

those are very nice rifles! I am sure that the US513 is still able to do its job against modern match rifles.

A gentleman who has been researching this model for several years says it has the correct Lyman rear sight and all the stampings. The only mystery is the meaning of the large initials GS overstamped on the US.



When these were released for sale to the public, shooting groups and various businesses would buy a number of them for their members or employees to practice with. It was common for them to stamp their group's, or company's, initials on those guns they owned. I like to think mine was once part of the Girl Scouts' private arsenal.



In the photo just above is the Ordnance Flaming Bomb stamped just below the US mentioned before.

This is one of my favorites in the collection which is made up of ONLY .22rf single-shot firearms made in US or Canada.

And, just for kicks, below is an ad from a 1917 issue of Arms and the Man, which was the NRA's official publication, prior to The American Rifleman.

Government surplus so they could sell it?
