    Rather uncommon Soviet block youth training rifle - .22 rimfire single shot manual cocking device bolt action rifle...

    FEG marked rifle numbers matching and no import markings...

    Femaru Fegyver Es Gepgyar Budapest on a military training rifle in .22 lr

    That's a keeper and nearly a unicorn...

    Took me how long to id that rifle. Think its the 2nd model of it. Was a lucky buy at last show. But came with tons of junk.

    You know I cannot work or drive...

    I would be happy to help research some guns and their histories for a select group here...

    Locust fork and Mark Christian and savage and trapp and Ricci and bravo and probably most of the nicer active members...

    I try to do some of that on my own - I like to support the good guys here - the same way I always try to respond to your threads a generate some interest and response and keep the thread active and on page one...

    I humbly hope that about a dozen folks here would admit to having received such assistance from me and appreciated it...

    Several items I assisted with brought higher than expected returns as a result.

    I am always willing to help your guys out - I hope that's been recognized.

    And yes the front sight protective hood and the pattern on the cocking knob look to me to indicate a second model - perfect companion or display piece of you have a frommer pistol or collect military .22 trainers...

    I would buy it were I still buying - that's a must have item for me as a useful tool and a "I've never seen one before - what the heck is that" range day piece...

    I hope my remarks I'm the past have been helpful and we'll received.

    Mike I would like to add that you always have an interesting bit of knowledge about most if not all models of manufacturers not seen or as ordinary. I am intrigued at learning about subjects that may ordinarily seem mundane or forgotten.

    I am right now reading on the Korean War as my uncle was in the 2nd ID 23rd RCT. I just finished the Book The Coldest Winter and now reading The Korean War by Mathew B. Ridgeway. Interesting perspectives. I read action reports of Heavy Bomber Groups over WW2 Germany and read the names of the casualties for the sake of remembering. Then match up the downed aircraft crash reports by the German Luftwaffe.

    I apologise to mmppres for bollocksing his thread.

    In a word S.L.A. Marshall - perhaps the definitive word...

    From a fictional standpoint W.E.B. Griffin

    I would call the works of both authors must reads covering the Korean War...

    And thanks for the compliments - a life long hobby and once in a great while if I impress Mark Christian or trap55 or rufe snow or no-nonsense I feel content.

    Of note is the service of the bloody bucket brigade Pennsylvania national gaurd taking the heat off of the marine corps at the chosin reservoir...

    They are the only non marine Corp unit authorized to were a marine Corp unit shoulder patch and they have an honor streamer hung alongside the corps colors...

    I try to contribute here and share knowledge and engage in debates and learn new things but lately I have felt that there are far more members here who wish I was absent than those who enjoy my posts...

    I know...

    But for every 10 members here who consider me a friend or peer or nice guy or an expert there is. Nasty cold hearted troll who not only hates me but seems to thrive on actively pissing on me - a misanthropic leper with delusions of grandeur madly typing away from him moms basement keyboard commando bunker control center...

    True friends and colleagues and comrades help take the sting away but it does get to me some times...

    J.C Higgins Model 103.16 .22 Rifle.

    Assuming that a good cleaning and inspection and lubrication and test firing clear up any potential bolt tolerance issues...

    This is not only a perfectly good range day .22 rimfire bolt action rifle for fun and practice and plunking and training kids and newbs...

    Already drilled and tapped for a scope.

    Burt plate and magazine and trigger guard easily addressed - the stock would clean up and refinish nicely - would be a nice entry level wood working project.

    For under $60.00 it's hard to see a downside

    Endless hours of cheap fun - a brick of damn near any .22 ammo and targets at 50 and 100 yds

    Great gift for a young boy or girl - or to be kept at uncles or grampas for their exclusive use

    Oh BTW do you know how many of these are entered into an FFL bound book with the model number being mistaken for the serial number - infamous Sears issue.

    Wards Hercules Model10 Shotgun Project .410 gauge single shot break open

    Another perfect range day fun project gun very simply and cheaply restored - terrific training piece or boy / girls first gun

    And of course the model number is the key to compatibility and parts

    Another sub $60.00 steal

    Most guys think that the model number is the serial number, makes you wonder just how many that have that same number :?:

    MrMike
    Just put a crazy rifle up you might like to look at.its amazing  what i go hiding in the boxes an cases in my so called shop  :)
  • mrmike08075mrmike08075 Member Posts: 11,828 ✭✭✭

    While you gents frequently enjoy some jokes at my expense - that's socially OK and reasonably amusing amongst friends and peers....

    But taking it to far is poking fun at my penchant for rifle accessories from the golden age of customizing and sporterization of captured and confiscated military weapons of our enemies and improving their performance whilst adapting them to our needs...

    Yes I like to have a California rollover cheek piece or a trigger shoe - a single or double set trigger : an integral compass or timepiece?

    Secondary wood embellishment - optics - scopes - holosight - red dot or green dot - Warner swahzee optics - long eye relief s out scope...


    Mike

  • mmppresmmppres Member Posts: 2,555 ✭✭✭
    Mike I have some of those item in my stash. these young guys dont have a clue what they are or how the heck to even use them.
    hell they wouldnt know the feeling of holding a custom stocked wildcat made with some wild wood with a roll over check piece with a flared pistol grip. with super fine hand cut checkering. Feeling the firearm's warmth as you look thru a flecker or unertial scope watching your heart beat  
  • mmppresmmppres Member Posts: 2,555 ✭✭✭
    Will keep adding more items I find hidden in shop daily
  • mrmike08075mrmike08075 Member Posts: 11,828 ✭✭✭

    It's kind of like "where's Waldo" for adults...

    Tell us more about the gun and it's now integral mechanical device...

    Can it be removed and fixed or is it stuck their for eternity...

    And you do not want my opinion on frankenmauser - possibly made In. China or Vietnam or it's.current status...


    Any item you would like examined just let me know...

    Mike

  • mmppresmmppres Member Posts: 2,555 ✭✭✭

    You have I think a star model D type 2

    Here is a link that cover's this gun data wise.

    Mike

  • mmppresmmppres Member Posts: 2,555 ✭✭✭
    The Winchester is a later model due to short barrel. Not exactly sure but looking into it.
    Thanks Mike yes it is a D-series nice little pistol for some one to bring back to working order.
    This being locked down has me finding more fun items to list.
