Anyone want to post up pics of their Zastava made rimfire rifles? Marked as a Charles Daly, Remington, MP22, CZ99, etc.??

It might be nice to see them all in one place here at Rimfire Central. :cool:

Here's my entry that is current as of May 2017.

My Zastava MP22 in .22 WMR and my daughter's Remington Model 5 in .22 LR.

Weird. You have to be logged in to see? :bonk:
I changed to to [pic] to show the syntax.

I'm logged in and I can't see 'em. Best bet is to upload to a hosting site and link to the pics there, rather than uploading direct.

I think you're right. I tried to host the photos on Rimfire Central instead of my usual way, but that didn't work.

Okay. Maybe they are visible now.

Any other Zastava owners?

Details on the forward scope mount and peep sight, please!
The rear sight is a Williams WGRS-54, which is made for a 3/8" rimfire dovetail. I had to use a small triangle file to re-shape the bottom of the Williams to fit the round top 11mm dovetail on the Zastava. There is a photo in this post.

The forward scope mount was hand modified from a Picatinny rail blank. Some photos are in this post from the same thread.

Coouple of years ago I bought a CZ-99 from a friend, Was able to get an extra magazine from JnP in Prescott, AZ for small bucks. The stock was typical muddy finish & the rudimentary checkering looked as if it had been done by a drunk beaver with bad teeth. No raised diamonds at all & it appeared to be 15-16lpi at the finest. Also the lines werent evenly spaced. The rifle shot well with S-K Std + but I just couldn't abide that stock. I'd intended to strip & re-finish it and use my dremel tool with tiny dental burrs & attempt to stipple the checkering but never got around to it. A few months ago a member here on RFC told me that Stocky's stocks had some of the Remington #5 laminated stocks in stock for what I considered a reasonable price so I ordered one. The laminated stock had a small 'swipe' on the left side of the buttstock just in front of the buttplate where the finish had apparently missed a spot or it had been 'hit' with sandpaper. A couple of quik 'fingers' of Tru Oil took care of that. The laminated stock is a couple of ounces heavier than the factory stock but that is of small moment. I still intend to strip the original stock & stipple the checkering patterns but there's no hurry now that I have the model 5 stock. I'll get around to it one day, if not...

Nice. That's what I did for my daughter's gun.

Her Model 5 originally came with a pink painted youth stock. The stock I got from Stocky's was "blemished" to the point that I just refinished the whole thing. I never knew how hard it was for laminate to take stain evenly until I messed with that project. :p

Yeah, trying to get laminate to 'take' stain is a very difficult (nearly impossible) task. That's why I just used a couple of fingers & 'wiped' on the Tru Oil & let it dry. It had a little more gloss than I wanted so I just used a very fine synthetic sanding pad to 'de-gloss' it a little. The Tru Oil I'd had setting on the shelf for a few years so it was thicker than the last time I used it but it worked OK for the small area I had to re-finish... I think I'd thin it a little if I was doing an entire stock?
