rimfire rifle collection

Yesterday, it occurred to me that I had never taken a photo of my .22 rimfire rifles all together. I gathered them up and putzed around a bit on the deck with the camera. From left to right, the rifles are a Winchester Model 67 (1936 I believe), a CZ ZKM 468 (1950), Marlin Model 39A (1952), Mossberg 250CA (circa mid-60s?), Ruger 10/22 (1988) and a Marlin Model 60 (1992).

The Mossberg rifle is just like the first rifle I owned. My parents gave me one of those at Christmas, around my 11th birthday. Sometime in the early 80s, it was stolen from my pickup. I found this one on Gunbroker a few years ago and bought it then.







I'm just experimenting with Imgur and trying to get the hang of their system. It looks like choosing "huge thumbnail" gets the size I need:

Beautiful and arguably, all classics in their own right.
