    It followed me home Ma! Can I keep it?

    Well, I had a table at this weekend’s gun show and brought home a new toy!








    A Remington 341P 22LR, tube fed, bolt action rifle. Build in May of 1936. That was the 4th month of production of this model. The 341 was made from 1936 - 1940. About 136K were produced but only 10% were the P model with the target peep sights. This one is just about immaculate. It was calling to me! Cost me $250. Gonna be heading to the range as soon as the rain stops.

    To be realistic that probably is my favorite caliber. It'll take down almost anything....sometime it takes a while to bleed out, but it'll do the job. It's quiet and you sure won't go hungry. Easy to carry beaucups ammo also.

    I think we were still using those at our Boy Scout camp in NC in the '70's!

    NICE find!

    They replaced it with the 500 series. The 341 is the predecessor to the 512.

    That's sharp! Just something about those old bolt .22's make you grin. I got Dad's old 514 single shot out last winter and found an old Weaver scope for it. Made me do something I haven't done in 30+ yrs, I bought a hunting license a couple weeks ago. Tree rats beware lol!

    Like those old .22s. First one I shot as a kid was an old bolt action (make?) single shot I found in a barn in Iowa. Who knows how long it had been there or last
    service/cleaned, but it still shot (LOL).
