Marlin 781, 783 & WesternField 807a

As you can tell, I've been on a vintage rimfire buying spree lately

Pictured below are a Marlin 781 .22 S,L, LR, a Marlin 783 .22 WMR and a WesternField 807a single shot 22

The WesternField is a Colt Colteer that was made for selling in Western Auto & Montgomery Ward stores. How many of you remember going in to a Western Auto or Montgomery Wards back in the day and looking at firearms ??? I bought my first shotgun at a MW store.

I'm now working on pairing the Marlins with period correct scopes like the Weaver steel tube El Paso made scopes

Tejun, looks like you need to spend some time over on Rimfire Central considering your new rifle interest. Lot's of old Rimfire rifle fans there that share your new love of those neat old rifles.

Good place to lighten that wallet too.

I am a member on RFC and kept Tejun as my handle. Lots of great info, just doesn't seem to be as lively of a crowd as here, but that site covers a S'load of rifles so I'm sure there are some sub forums that have more action than others.
