Here are a few pictures of an old pawn shop .22 I found for $40.00. The action and bore were amazingly good given the rough exterior of the little .22. There were many thousands of these made and they can be found very cheap. Look at the picture of the little .22 “As found” in this projects gallery.

Here is a little example of what you can do in your workshop to give new life to an otherwise “unloved toy”. I fix them up and give them to new shooters or kids (With parents permission of course). A friend of my wife’s 10 year old son has this one and it is his prized possession, this is priceless to me and we have taught another young man gun handling and safety at the right time in his life.

I reshaped the pistol grip and narrowed the forearm a little, adding an ebony tip, grip cap and butt plate help dress it up a little. The ebony faux cross bolt plugs give it a “Big Game Rifle” look. Silver Gun Kote baked on the bolt and a cold blue touch up completed it. My cat approves..

Enjoy

Very nice work. I learned to shoot a rifle with a single-shot Winchester model 67 .22. Good post Jerry!

Great work on the rifle and the new shooters. Sounds like these kids are getting taught the priorities in order, safety first. Thanks for handing down several traditions and skills. BTKS

Thanks for the comments fellas, I did take it to the range before giving it away to sight it in and test fire it. It shoots wonderfully, I like that you can load all flavors of the .22 in it. Shooting the little CB caps or shorts out of it is like shooting a pellet rifle and you don’t need hearing protection. I used wiping poly for the finish and am very happy with how it works on old gun stocks. I probably should have filled the grain in a few spots but its not a safe queen, it was meant to be used and loved. Best regards to all who commented.

I thought I would also add that these little projects give you opportunity to use rasps, rat tailed files, patching techniques for dents and dings that wont steam out, lessons in filling grain (Walnut is the king of open grain), inletting and countless other wood taming techniques. What fun!

Hi. Total newbie here, both to woodworking and to guns. I have a .22 that a family member gave me a couple of years ago, when I was learning to shoot (funny to read about how it’s the best way to teach kids—grownups too!). Not much of a gun guy, probably never will be, but I do slaughter and butcher from time to time (pigs, goats, sheep), and once my aim gets good enough for a reliable kill, I’d like to start hunting. Once I’ve successfully bagged a few rabbits and such, I’ll probably add a deer rifle to the collection.

I’d like to put a new stock on my rifle, since the current one is just cheap black plastic. Should I work with a single block? Or would it be OK to laminate a few pieces together? And then… well, what then? Any pointers would be appreciated. Got a few projects going right now, so for the time being I’m just going to be hunting down some decent wood, and doing research.

Have your say...
