bolt action .22
Bolt action is a type of firearm action where the handling of cartridges into and out of the weapon's barrel chamber is operated by manually manipulating the bolt directly via a handle, which is most commonly placed on the right-hand side of the weapon (as most users are right-handed). When the handle is operated, the bolt is unlocked from the receiver and pulled back to open the breech, allowing the spent cartridge case to be extracted and ejected, the firing pin within the bolt is cocked (either on opening or closing of the bolt depending on the gun design) and engages the sear, then upon the bolt being pushed back a new cartridge (if available) is loaded into the chamber, and finally the breech is closed tight by the bolt locking against the receiver.
Bolt-action firearms are most often repeating rifles, but there are some bolt-action variants of shotguns and a few handguns as well. Examples of this system date as far back as the early 19th century, notably in the Dreyse needle gun. From the late 19th century, all the way through both World Wars, the bolt-action rifle was the standard infantry firearm for most of the world's military forces. In modern military and law enforcement use, the bolt action has been mostly replaced by semi-automatic and selective-fire firearms, though the bolt-action design remains popular in dedicated sniper rifles due to inherently more rugged design, and are still very popular for civilian hunting and target shooting.
Compared to other manually operated firearm actions such as lever-action and pump-action, bolt action offers an excellent balance of strength (allowing powerful cartridge chamberings), ruggedness, reliability and accuracy, all with lighter weight and much lower cost than self-loading firearms. Bolt-action firearms can also be disassembled and re-assembled for maintenance and repair much faster, owing to their having fewer moving parts. The major disadvantage is a slightly lower rate of fire than other types of manual repeating firearms, and a far lower practical rate of fire than semi-automatic weapons, though this is not a very important factor in many types of hunting, target shooting and other precision-based shooting applications.
I have decided to list this CZ 457 Pro Varmint to help make some space and free up funds for other projects. I purchased this rifle and accessories at the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021. I fired one 5 round magazine through the rifle to function check after purchase, but it has not been...
Some dodo cut the barrel off at 18 1/8" (but it was done well, with a good crown), but I happily had a scope mount to fit the holes. Put a vintage Weaver K4 on it. Also replaced the firing pin spring, so the trigger pull is going to be heavy until it is used a bit. Take $40 off if you don't...
Over the last six years or so, I have purchased three bolt action .22 rifles from three different manufacturers (Ruger, Marlin, and Savage), ranging in price from $180 to $400. All three of these rifles have come from the factory with either having the sights canted, or the holes for mounting a...
Have a Savage 22lr that I’ve never shot. Bought as a Christmas gift for myself and never got around to shooting it, and don’t see myself shooting it any time soon. Still brand new, unfired. Bought at Sportsmans Warehouse just before Christmas of 2020. Will upload photos soon. Or can send photos...
Lightly-used for target shooting. I no longer have a need for this beauty, and I'd like to get it into the hands of someone who does. Other than minor wear on the bolt finish, looks and works essentially as new. Please note: does not include a magazine, it was lost during a move.

Yes I bought a budget rifle.... figure a lot of cost savings is usually quality control and fine tuning hand work. I’m new to bolt action and just purchased a Savage mod 93 in .22 WMR. I have a 22-250 savage that’s smoother and an old mouser that’s got a glass finish on bolt.
Looks kinda bead...
Just got gifted a Remington model 582 .22LR bolt action rifle. I have no need for another .22 rifle and am thinking about selling this one. I have looked online at prices but they fluctuate quite a bit. Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Here is a really neat .22 bolt action. This one was made in 1947 or so. It has. 22” barrel, the bolt dust cover is still in place. Bore and chamber are in great shape.
It is a .22 short, long and long rifle
It has a Weaver C4 all steel scope on top with a nicely mounted Weaver side mount...
For sale is my Rare Remington Nylon 12 in .22 short, long, long rifle. It has a meiji 4x20 scope on it. I've never shot it but got it used. I don't believe its been used very much however. Rifle has minor handling marks, bore is in great condition. The only detractor is its missing its iron...
