WTK what .22 I have. Picked this .22 up broken and filthy but I like it.

I can't find Brand or model markings on it anywhere. Anyone know what make model this is?

Thanks for the help!

Looks like a Savage model 6. They made a ton of them for everybody, Sears, Montgomery Ward, Western Auto.

Really crazy, it is not in my assembly/disassembly rimfire book under any make/model.

Someone said it is in the nra book though.

Yep, Savage Model 6A. As stated above, had many different company name it was sold under. Also known as the gill or fish gill 22. Numrich's has a schematic showing all of the parts.

Enjoy it while it still works. Years ago, I got one of those for short money but it soon developed a problem in that it did not want to stop shooting. I ordered some parts that I thought might fix it from Numrich but no luck. I got another one for cheap because of the severe rust on it and swapped parts with no success. Then I was at an auction and whatayaknow, they had bundled three of them together to sell as one lot. All had issues, rust, bent barrel, busted stock, missing trigger guard but I thought there must be a good part in the pile that will fix mine. No such luck. The problem is the bolts have a near knife edge ridge on the bottom that operates the disconnector. Once the ridge wears out, there is no stopping them.

I got one... a fun gun to shoot.....either as a semi-auto or lock the bolt in and use as a single shot/bolt action. Cant hardly run away if you push the bolt knob in to lock it for a single shot. :whistling:
