It's too bad you don't have some WW2 era 22lr ammo.  I really get a kick when I run an en bloc full of 1940 something ammo through my Garand.  Hearing the sounds, feeling the recoil, smelling the smells, it actually gives me chills.

I have NEVER seen US ammo 22 from WW2.

I pulled my mossberg and remington book - that picture is a Remi 40X - the wrong image loaded LOL

 

BEAUTIFUL RIFLE !  

 

I love my 513 - but always wanted a 40X

Now you are talking !  :)  Missing the sight hood as they all are - what's the serial range?


Would like to compare it to mine....

 

Well - if that 40X is yours - AND you want it to go someday - it would fit VERY nicely in my .22 collection LOL

 

:)

what would be the purpose of a .22 rifle issued to soldier in the USMC?

Most recruits need training right?

There is a collecting niche of .22 military trainers...

New recruits off the bus for training. Why waste 30-06 on newbies!

I Know somebody with 1930, 40's & 50's rimfire ammo in collectable box's. No guarantee it will fire as well as new, or at all. 

Betcha 20 it does...  ;)
