.22 Short is a variety of .22 caliber (5.6 mm) rimfire ammunition. Developed in 1857 for the first Smith & Wesson revolver, the .22 rimfire was the first American metallic cartridge. The original loading was a 29 or 30 gr (0.066 or 0.069 oz; 1.879 or 1.944 g) bullet and 4 gr (0.0091 oz; 0.2592 g) of black powder. The original .22 rimfire cartridge was renamed .22 Short with the introduction of the .22 Long in 1871.
Developed for self defense, the modern .22 Short, though still used in a few pocket pistols and mini-revolvers, is mainly used as a quiet round for practice by the recreational shooter. The .22 Short was popularly used in shooting galleries at fairs and arcades; several rifle makers produced "gallery" models for .22 Short exclusively. Due to its low recoil and good inherent accuracy, the .22 Short was used for the Olympic 25 meter rapid fire pistol event until 2004, and they were allowed in the shooting part of modern pentathlon competitions before they switched to air pistols.
Several makes of starter pistols use .22 Short blank cartridges. Some powder-actuated nail guns use the .22 Short cartridge as a power source.
Found a box of 50 rounds of 22 short have no use for them and probably never will.

Remington 341-pSportmaster in decent condition. I would describe it as shooter grade. I enjoy this rifle a lot but have too many bolt action 22s as it stands and need to make room in my safe.
This rifle was made between 1936-1940, making it C&R eligible. I would be more than happy to sell this...
This is a Remington 514 22 Short, Long or Long Rifle Single Shot Bolt Action Rifle. The rifle is in great shape. Buyer pays $50 USPS Shipping or local pick up $10 OSP Background Fee. The owner is not interested in trades.
For sale is a Winchester Model 1890 in 22 short. I don’t know much about the rifle or it’s round count as it was recently inherited. I believe Mfg date is 1899. It’s in fair condition.
Price is negotiable. Thanks for looking.
This is a nice Model 90 pump from Winchester. The steel has some minor patina and the stock has some discoloration but no major dents of cracks. The rifling's are pristine for a rifle of this era. Manufactured 1918-1919. The action is tight and the rifle appears to be all original...

NO LONGER AVAILABLE I started a project some years ago to put together an early Belgian Browning 22 short Automatic Rifle. I've since bought one and I'm no longer interested in completing the project.
These guns are one of the best 22 automatics ever made and do not come cheaply if you can...
