Caption: Winchester's new Wildcat 22 continues a long tradition of Winchester rimfire
semiautomatics, but this is the first design that adds the economy of injection-molded polymer manufacturing, producing a lightweight package for both kids and adults.
Upon its introduction in I960, the .22 Magnum-more properly the .22 Winchester Rimfire
Magnum-created a splash among shooters on a par with the more recent introduction of Hornady's .17 HMR in 2002.
I have a Remington Model 12 chambered in .22 Remington Special (.22 Winchester Rimfire
) in my shop for repair.
The Pathfinder is the miniaturized version of the Bulldog Pug with the same sights, grips, and enclosed ejector rod and available in either .22 Long Rifle or .22 Winchester Rimfire
Boy Scouts are provided free Winchester rimfire
ammunition, .22 rifles and targets to use on the range.
This year, I'm using my custom Model 52 Winchester rimfire
with a 27X Nikon scope.
The Model 1890 was a Browning design, originally chambered for .22 Winchester Rimfire
. The 1906 was a less expensive version with a round barrel; both the '90 and '06 were replaced with the Model 62 in 1932.
A few years ago I had a pair of Charter Arms fixed-sighted Pathfinders chambered in .22 LR and .22 Winchester Rimfire
This latest Taurus sixgun is actually a 9-gun with two 9-shot cylinders chambered in .22 and .22 Winchester Rimfire
There's something magic, though, about the year 1890 and the introduction of a new cartridge with the impressive title of .22 Winchester Rimfire
. Known to us as the .22 WRF and also loaded by Remington once upon a time as the .22 Remington Special, this long-cased .22 rimfire appealed directly to hunters who were probably not exactly overwhelmed by the introduction of the .22 Long Rifle in 1887 or '88, loaded with 5 grains of black powder.
Winchester still turns out .22 Winchester Rimfire
Is the.22 RS the same as the .22 Winchester Rimfire
? My Remington doesn't seem to eject the Winchester cartridges very well, so I am wondering if they are the same.
