I would seem that as far as the OP goes there has not been much input as far as 60s thru 80s 22 are concerned. The Remingtons are a good choice, Winchester,yes, H&R,you bet. Lots of Mossberg talk, and that's where I fit in. Well Mossberg and Stevens. This is my Mossberg collection stsrted two years ago and I have around $800 in all of them. They are, from left to right.
42MB w/ British Proofs. 51M Spegiel, 46B(b), 44US, WWF version of a 46A,
46, and a 46A proper. The gun on the far left obviously isn't a Mossberg, its a Weatherby Varmit Master, JP Sauer manufacture I inherited along with the 42 MB which got the whole Mossberg infection going.
