It was about 1952 and after going to the fair I developed a love for the gallery guns.
I must have been about 12 years old.
My neighbor asked if I were to get a rifle what would it be.
I said a Winchester pump gallery gun.
Weeks passed and the same neighbor asks me again. I say a gallery gun.
He says he knows where one new in the box is for $45.
Well, I got the little beauty,
I kept it until I needed money to buy my wife's wedding ring.
I have always missed it and last week I bought a used one at the gun show.

That's nice little rifle. I was always a sucker for .22 pumps too.

Picked up a 1936 Remington mod. 12 a few years ago.

I have owned two pump 22 rifles. One was a Winchester and I think it was a Model 275 and a Remington Fieldmaster. I eventually traded them both off for something else I had to have and kept my Marlin Model 80 which is a bolt action.

Those gallery guns are a neat looking package. Congrats and enjoy it.

I guess I'm too young...o_O... to have seen actual .22s at any fairs. What I remember looked to be real rifles, but shot BBs. They had an air hose attached, and the guy refilled the BBs with a funnel. Had a table full of paper cups of pre-counted BBs. God forbid if you got any extra shots.

I've only shot one pump, an old Winchester a buddy had in high school.

@joe45c:
You are correct, and I do not like it either.
It is out of character.
I bought another 1906 on Gunbroker with matching serial numbers.
Just for the hey of it, I switched the stocks.
Worked fine.
I contacted Homesteadparts.com and worked out a deal for a swap.
I sent the cheek pad stock to them for exchange.
The new unfinished stock should arrive this week along with some parts I needed.
Here is the little 22 after I swapped the stock:

Now if I can just get the new unfinished stock to look like that I will be go to go.

Looks good, prettier grain than the first. It looked more like a safari rifle with that big cheek. Glad it was an easy swap.
