serial #19462, 22 LR, 24 1/2'' Springfield Armory barrel with a bright excellent bore. This very fine rifle appears very much as though it is the work of either Griffin & Howe or perhaps Seymour Griffin himself, given the architecture of the stock, the contour of the ejection port, comb flutes and the stock embellishments. The metal surfaces of the barreled action retain perhaps 95-97% very good quality blue, the loss due to even fading and some toning to plum. The front portion of the bolt body remains bright with nice cross-hatched burnishing as-is seen on both G&H and Sedgley rifles of the period and the bolt knob has been neatly checkered on its top face, the underside flat and just slightly and checkered as well. The action races have been neatly honed bright and the edge of the receiver nicely engine-turned. The bottom metal retains perhaps 85% quality blue with flakes of light oxidation on the front extension and the bow of the guard. The checkered American walnut pistolgrip stock remains in the near excellent condition with just a few scattered light handling marks from the years. It features a G&H-style bone forend tip, blued steel pistolgrip cap and checkered steel buttplate with wraparound checkering patterns at both grip and forend. The rifle is sighted with a nice banded sporting ramp front with knurled hood, Lyman 48 rear and Carl Zeiss Zielklein telescopic sight mounted by a G&H single lever quick detachable scope base; both front ring of receiver and barrel are drilled and tapped for steel target blocks. The single lever base was very short-lived, replaced by the double lever in 1929; the scope has a post and crosshair reticle and very fine optics and rates excellent with only very light wear. The rifle is fitted with G&H-style quick detach sling swivels and a single original blued magazine is included. Looking very much like the depression-era ''remodeled'' rifles, there is a very neatly filled hole along the toeline just ahead of the sling swivel stud (as seen in Mr. Petrov's books on the subject) and a penciled number in the barrel channel which unfortunately is no longer legible. Serial numbers listed on both sides of this were NRA models, this serial number however was not located in any of S.R.S. records. A fine man-sized 22 rifle which no doubt shoots as good as it looks, clearly built by a maker who knew their business.
