Hi,

What .22 pump has the following attributes:

1. Minimum 20" barrel (longer is OK, probably better for what I need).

2. Shoots s, l and lr.

3. Either a grooved receiver for scope or else comes drilled and tapped from the manufacturer or is easily drilled and tapped.

Thanks.

chim's choice is an excellent one, but since the question didn't state that it had to be currently manufactured, I will pick the Winchester model 61.:D
Also the Belgium Browning Trombone which is sometimes made in special runs. It is basically a similar design to the Winchester, by original John Browning patents.

The High Standard Flite King/ JC Higgins 33 had those qualities. Noble/H&R made one as well, more difficult to find. The Winchester 61 was grooved from '55 on, but expensive to acquire. The Remington 572 is probably the easiest to locate. Maybe the new Henry?

I never owned a Browning Trombone so I don't know if it was designed to feed all 3 types of 22 rimfire rounds. I do know that the Winchester 61 was designed for all 3 and it was made with a grooved receiver from sometime in 1955 until it was discontinued.

IIRC, the Browning Trombone is/was L.R.-only, and the OP specified all three lengths.

Here's a Remmy:

The Savage Model 29 was made from the -20's up to 1967, and all would meet your requirements excepting the scope grooves - which one of the later-made ones will have.

But - if you catch a deal on an early one, it's a snap to attach a Weaver one-piece base on,

The Savage model 29 is a piece of junk, soft metal, doesnt wear well at all, if you want a great gun, get a Winchester 61, second best is a Remington 121,

Good to know someone had a positive experience, but Im curious, if its like new, could it have been shot much? 100's of thousands of rounds seems a little optimistic

Like a well-loved woman, they never get older! You ask an old guy who's really in love if his wife has aged, and if he's a gun guy he'll tell you she's better'n 99%--MINT! Same with your favorite shootin' iron I reckon. LIKE NEW! :p

..........but if I could only keep one of my 22 pumps, it would be the Win 61. In the pre WW2 days I don't think any manufacturer ever put out junk. There were some designs that buying public didn't like, but nothing was "junk".

that is so true, sometimes I forget about the emotional side, it can turn a road apple into a passion fruit!
