That's a beaut! I would to love to add a 10/22 with the International stock to the stable to match my 44 carbine with the same stock. Now to start looking, it never, ever ends.
that is funny and sounds familiar. About 6-7 years ago I bought a WWII M1 Carbine and made the mistake of taking the wife to the range to shoot it. Of course she loved it so much, I ended up buying one for her. Happy wife…….I told him I would let him shoot it from time to time since it was his birthday present. He claims the fun thing here is if he buys something new I just ask, what brand, model and caliber he got for me?
I too hated the plywood stocks. I bought a gray laminate stainless No1 - just to round out the collection. Now I like them. Too bad they made the ones on the 450 Bushmaster No1s so dark it ruined them.When I first saw the laminate 10/22's, I thought they were the ugliest thing I'd ever seen. They've since grown on me. That was a great find.
Not sure how you can know that…the serial number range encompasses approximately 3600 numbers plus the clean-up guns.
The laminated Sporter was manufactured for Faber Bros, my notes state 796 was the total number for the run.
I almost bout one of those about 15 years ago. I didn't and regret not buying it.The 10/22 was a firearm we kept in the going to get one mood, but something else always seemed to come up. I picked this one up for my husband for his birthday a number of years ago:
We both quite like the Mannlicher stock it has.
