    A Bit Different Then Our Current WWII Theme

    How about a Remington Model 37 22 Target Rifle. This gem came in the other day and now resides in my collection. It is a Heavy Barrel all out target rifle designed to compete against Winchester Model 52s. They are considered to be a top shelf gun of their day and still very desirable today. First gun for 2020!

    "Top Shelf"...ain't no doubt about that! Winchester M-52's I see quite regular, Remington M-37's...hardly never! Is it U.S. stamped?

    No US Stamp. There were only a little over 12,000 of these made compared to a much larger number of Winchester model 52s.

    A Not seldom seen rifle but a real work of art. Nice even with out checkering. Is the trigger guard housing metal or plastic? I have one of the Mossberg Target rifles in 22lr, forgot model number but the trigger guard was made of plastic otherwise a fine rifle.

    I have owned a couple of the Remington Model 37s and they were really great shooters. As good today as they were all those years ago. A very knowledgeable gunsmith friend of mine once told me that these guns had a very slightly tapered barrel (a little smaller internal diameter toward the muzzle) and that was the reason they shot so well. He developed his own technique of "taper-lapping" .22 rimfire bores like the 37's and many of his custom guns were top winners in bench rest .22 matches.

    Remingtons and Winchesters were all steel. Mossberg used a lot plastic and stamped parts to keep the price low. While they were not the quality of a Remington or Winchester they were still fine guns and better then most stuff you can find on the market today. I have several Mossberg Target rifles and a couple are US marked. There are metal replacement trigger guards made for these guns. The plastic Mossberg used was an early one and it often shrinks and causes a poor fit.
