Thought I start a thread for pics of our .22 powder burners.
Found these two from Laval Quebec.
1942 Cooeys 82's.
I'm sure the bottom one I used in Air Cadets in the early 70's :mrgreen:

I'd like to get a full wood 82 someday. I had many 22's From Ruger 10/22 with various length barrels ( 8" to 22") Marlins 70HCs, Lakefields MKI, Henry Lever, Pistols ( Ruger 22/45 MKII/MKIII, S&W 422, GSG 1911's) GSG STG 44, Belt fed, Mossbergs ( 151M 46BA )

Yes I said Belt Fed. I used to have a 22LR belt fed upper for my AR15.

I just got a Eaton Ranger AKA Cooey 78, and my Marlin HC I bought from CT when I was 17.

I sold my Ruger 22/45 and picked up this Browning Buckmark.

I included 2 .17 HMR's as well, the bottom 2. The Martini has an 18 1/8" bl. 6.5-20X44mm scope and does 2,584fps with 17gr. Hornadys, it's preferred ammo.
The Marlin on the bottom, same Simmons scope bit with turrets, prefers 20gr. HP's by WW and runs them just over 2,500fps, way over their advertised 2,375fps.
The top 2 .22's are model 60's. The bottom M60 with the turreted .22 scope was bought by my dad in Regina during the second war. I refinished it 30 years ago.
The turreted 4X scope is my addition.
Next one down is my Anschutz .22LR - a nice find at a bargain price & it loves 22 Browning 40gr. HP's at 1,475fps.
My 10-22 Ruger, with very few Ruger parts left, the action body & bolt is about it. Everything else is replaced, trigger group, stock and barrel.
The Steven's favourite was originally .32 RF with a rotted out bl. and no chance of finding ammo, so I converted it to shoot .22 LR.
It did not shot as well as I'd hoped.
I also have an 1968 J.Weeks and Sons Constabulary Revolver, originally .442 RF. Someone converted it to shoot .44 SPL - for some unknown reason.
Since it was destroy collector-wise, I bored out the bl. and cylinders and lined them and chambered the cylinder for .22 LR. some where along the line,
most of the parts went missing. Yes - it is registered as a prohibited handgun, under my 12/6 P.A.L. Very dangerous - wish I could find the parts
that went missing in my house move 11 years ago. Got some of them. :drinkers: :lol:

Oh, forgot to mention, the actioned stock, was a .17HMr Savage that I wasn't happy with the accuracy there-of. I pulled the barrel and was going to chamber
up a .224 blank I have for .22 WRM, but haven't gotten around to that yet. Maybe I'll round up another .17 bl. and try that- I also have the .17HMR chambering reamer
that I used on the Martini.
Incidentally, that .17HMR Martini has made 3/8", 5-shot groups at 100 meters and killed gophers at 282 to 284 yards every year I've taken it.

Huskydude - we used converted #4 Enfields in the Air Cadets in 1966, I think it was. Wed evenings was drill, and Friday evenings was shooting. We were situated at
Wolsley Barracks in London, Ont. The Armory downtown is where we drilled and shot on it's basement-range. I remember how sweet the air was. That's lead dust. There was
a Sherman M4 with the 105m Derp gun in the Armory, guarding, with gun facing the front doors.

The Armory is now a restaurant - go figure. Likely did not know about the range. lol
That old Husky is familiar. There is a fellow at each of our gun shows here in PG, who always has 3 or 4 of those for sale. Octagonal bl. .22's are pretty cool.

BTW- if you hold the control button down and repeatedly hit the + key, the picture will enlarge.

To return it to normal size, hold the control key (CTRL) and push the 0 (number) key and the picture will return to your pre-set size.

for PC's only, likely

Yes - but after you click on it, try holding the CRTL button down and clicking on the + button - increase the size again.

It used a modified 1919 feed system, scaled down. I guess I was suppose to soak the belts in WD40 and that would helped pulling the round out of the belt. It was one of those guns that was fun when it worked. But pissed off alot of people. Being that most people just dumped 10/22 25rd mags, Well this was 300rd belt. And I had an spare and a 50rd belt lol

Yeah- had 3 of the steel lipped 25 round mags. Was handy when shooting gophers.
