Re: Keystone rifles have sort of snuck up on me ......

I see they also have the rights to the Chipmunks. Those were designed and first manufactured in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon some years ago. Good little .22s.

I've had them in both .22 Hornet and .30-30. Couldn't quite fall in love with them, but deep respect for their utilitarian qualities. A man with a 340 is well armed -- and he can load Ballistic Tips in that .30WCF. Mine like the Nosler 125s.

Re: Just for fun lets kick around this question ..... What was the best 22 rifle you have ever owned and why?

My first .22 was a used-hard Winchester Model 1890 pump that cost $30. Dad agreed to put up half if I could raise/save the other $15. The stock had been repaired but it seemed in decent shape. However it turned out the bore was too rough for any serious accuracy, so we traded that in at the Bon Marc...
