Re: Anyone know anything about 22-3000 Levell R-2

The stock is nothing special and the barrel was drilled for the old scope mounts. How much are hi-wall actions bringing these days?

Re: Anyone know anything about 22-3000 Levell R-2

Thanks Guys, I think I'm going to pass on this one. It's priced too high ($2000) to put more into and the brass availability and cost is giving me pause.

Thanks!

Anyone know anything about 22-3000 Levell R-2

Local shop has an old custom SST 1885 HiWall relined to 22-3000 R2 by CC Johnson of Thackery, Ohio. Original barrel was 32-40. Initially thought cool, 22-3000 would be nice but since have learned this is an old wildcat based on the 25-20 single shot case and even if it was very popular prior to WWII...

It's an aftermarket, but I don't know who did it. Looks like the pattern that Rogue River used to do but this rifle doesn't have any of their other refinements.

1894 Winchester SRC and a story

Always wanted an old 1894 Winchester src and brought one home today. The outside is pretty worn, but the bore is bright. Made in 1910 and came from the family that inherited Emmett Dalton's estate. The local shop tried to tie it to Dalton but there's no paper trail. Good story though. https://adobe....
