    Hey guys, i've had this rifle hanging above the fireplace in my house since i was a little kid. My father never told us the story behind it but i assume it was my grandfather's. When we renovated the house, the rifle came down and was put in a closet. Now my brother has always loved this thing and i'd love to clean it up and get rid of all the rust and get it in shooting order for him for when he comes back from iraq (or maybe i'll keep it for myself, i've been in the market for a .22). The rifle is beat up. tons of rust and what not. It has no markings or numbers on it, so i've taken pics of it if any of you see anything you recognize. Its a .22 bolt action with what looks to be a 10 rd. removable magazine. Any of you have any idea of what i've got here?

    The government passed a law in 1968 that required all manufacturers to put serial numbers on guns.

    You may want to check out AGI's Stock Refinishing video, it has a lot of good info on getting an old stock back to brand new looking. It's hard to tell from pictures but it looks like the barrel could be really corroded so keep in mind that there are companies that make barrel liners for less than $70 which may be an option for you.
