Thread: Sportco Model 40 .22

    Sportco Model 40 .22

    For sale or swap for another interesting project.

    This Sportco Model 40 single shot .22 had been at the back of my gun cabinet for years.
    I fished it out this winter as a practice piece while learning to do cold rust bluing.
    So it's now maybe has the nicest metalwork of any Model 40 in NZ and maybe even the world.

    @Tentman and @T.T have both seen it ( and others I have done ) and liked the finish.

    The woodwork is still all original despite the metal work being almost perfect.
    These are a basic single shot that some young boy might love for Christmas and have some good cheap fun ( with a bit of parental supervision ).

    Happy for it to go to someone handy for only $100 if in Christchurch or close at hand.
    Or as above always looking for interesting gunsmithing and re finishing projects.

    Free bump for a neat wee rifle, as mentioned I've seen the restoration job completed by David and its very nicely done
