Start The Week Off With A Puzzle!

So, after my Friday Gun Pr0n #300, where I invited everyone to guess my .22s, AJD sends in his three .22 rifles in - from the UK - to be ID'd:

Mystery 22 rifle #1:


I'm pretty sure that's a Browning receiver, and it feeds through the side of the stock like their takedown 22, but other than that, I'm stumped...


Mystery 22 rifle #2


My only guess is some sort of training rifle for one of the Enfield series.


Mystery rifle #3


This one looks an awful lot like my Remington 511, so I'm guessing something in the Remington family.


AJD, let us take a few more guesses before filling us in please!

That is all.

from the looks,I would say that they are all .22LR. As to which brand they are..I only have a 10/22,a Winchester 69A and Winchester 72 in .22LR by which to gauge.

The top one looks to be a Winchester 63, but there's a remote possiblity that it could also be a Winchester 1903.

I think the top one is a 1903 Winchester, wasn't that chambered in .22 Auto? I I believe it is a JMB (pbuh) design.
The middle one might be an Italian rifle, like I remember seeing years ago.

Ancient Woodsman said...

WAG here, but middle one is a pre-war Mauser and the bottom one is a CZ?

Old NFO said...

Concur with AW, and I 'think' the top one is a 1903...

Mu said...

The middle one looks like a bubbaed German 1888.

#1 Is a Winchester 1903. My #1 Son and I fought our way through the crowds at Cabela's and came up with that. Interesting gun.
No, really Cabela's in Owatonna was a Zoo, anywhere near the guns! Rest of the store was empty, well as empty as Cabela's can be on a Saturday...
The other ones? Bottom Remington of some sort....

I have to go with Winchester 1903 for the first one as well. It's almost identical to my Winchester 1905.

Ancient Woodsman said...

Third guess: Sticking with Winchester 63 for the top one, pre-war Mauser for middle one, and Mauser ES350-type for the bottom.

In most of the IRL groups I hang around, I am the gun guru. This says significantly more about the people i hang around rather than me though. I have no idea on any, other than a vague agreement that the bottom looks remarkably like a remington 511. (I learned to shoot on a Remington 511, alongside a Kimber 82.) The problem is I am gunny-racist. All bolties (apart from the major military players of the early 1900s) look the same to me.

Libertyman is right, #1 a 1903 Winchester and is shoots .22 Auto, which is very hard to find. B.E.L.L. Laboratory was loading some many years ago but the rounds were over $3 per.

The center one is a Walther Model I or II. You can see the release button for the box magazine in front of the trigger. There appear to be after market scope bases mounted fore and aft of the rear sight.

It has an interesting action in that it can be used as a bolt action or a semi-auto. There is a detent that locks the bolt handle up in the unlocked position. When the gun is fired with the bolt unlocked it functions as a blowback type semi-auto.
