With the variety of rimfire disciplines, from cowboy action to Olympic level three-position, there are a host of different rimfire designs on the market. These may shoot the same ammo, but they certainly vary in looks and ergonomics. This is testimony to human creativity. I'll start this picture thread off with two very different guns.
The first is a FR Gemini 703 from HPS Target Rifles Ltd. in England. As shown below (fitted with Anschutz 54 match action), it is a 50m smallbore "free rifle". However, it is designed so that you can switch in a centerfire action (most commonly 6mmBR) for 300m matches. With an adjustable handgrip, it's wild looking to say the least. HPS calls this an "An unashamed ISSF derived stock for both 50m smallbore and 300m fullbore shooting."
The next gun is likewise accurate, but designed to shoot from the bench. The proud owner is David "Stump" Newsom. Rifle is a LB/RP Turbo built by Bill Calfee. FUDD Tuner is by Scott Hamilton. Stock is McMillan Edge painted '04 Cadillac Escalade Pearl White w/ silver flames. Trigger is 1.4 ounce Jewell. Scope is Leupold 36x mounted in BKL rings atop Davidson bases. Barrel by Douglas. Gun weighs in at < 10.5 lbs. The handsome rest was crafted by Laymon Loggins. (Photo courtesy of our friends the UK Assn. of Rimfire Benchrest Shooting. Check out their site, Benchrest22.org, it has lots of interesting info, plus free targets.)

Three generations of my family have used this good old Win 52 and the equally old 20x Lyman. Nice old rifle that I still enjoy shooting.

Gorgeous 52 do you have any more pics?
Here I'm posting a pic of my Cooper LVT 17 Mach 2.
I'm really pleased with the rifle. Accurate and attractive what
a great combo!
Have Fun, Scott

Gary, nice job. But you need to build a repeater. That way us Tubb shooters will have a rimfire to practice with indoors.

Thanks, there's been lots of intrest among the T2K shooters on it, mainly as a prone gun, have had a few requests about a repeater, have to wait and see.
