Wonderful old Remington .22 bolt action rifle. The shop I bought it from a few years back said it had been stored away for 50 years or so, taken out only for periodic shooting and cleaning. With the exception of some scoring marks around the mounting area (it appears someone mounted a scope at one point, then went back to the "peep sight"), it does indeed appear to have been in a time capsule. Original wood finish, 25" barrel, 43" over all length. Comes with two six-round magazines. Thumb safety. This would be an excellent rifle to learn on, or for general Saturday plinking. There is no serial number; but a few people have told me that it's from around the 1950's.
