Found my Birthday present

Local Store has a "Ranger" target rifle - looks to be a Stevens/Savage
5 shot bolt action repeater with heavy barrel and peep sight with
military sling and blocks for one of the old style Lyman scopes (#5 I think they were)

Pretty good condition - soon as I figure out how to host and post a picture I'll add it to the thread.

Nice! I just got one of my birthday presents, another* H&R M12. Heck, everybody needs three big heavy single shot .22 target rifles right? The other two "birthday" presents were another T/C Renegade .54, and another Stainless Ruger Old Army**. Really, I can quit any time.

*I just happened to have a front/rear set of Olympic sights and needed a place to park them, might as well be on a rifle.

**They are not making M12 rifles, Renegades or Old Army revolvers any more. The chances of them starting again are slim and even if they did it would be at two or three times the cost I paid for these.

If they were to begin making them again would be polymer. While I can tolerate polymer pistols the new breed of polymer wheel guns just seem like sacrilege to me.

My dad has a "U.S. PROPERTY" marked Stevens 416 target rifle with a circled X barrel. It's a nice 26" heavy barrel with a walnut stock with a 5 round magazine (interchanges with Win and other magazines).
