I am going down nostalgic lane and looking for the manufacturer/brand/model of the 22 caliber rifles we used in Scouts to get our marksmenship merit badge.
Seems they were all wood furniture, bolt action, single feed.
I spent a lot of time at Camp Tallaha near Charleston (no longer exists) but would like to acquire a similar rifle, just can't remember the brand/ / model. Give me some idea of what I need to be looking for.

I think the ones we had at Camp Tiak were either Stevens or J.C. Higgins. Basically, the same gun. I have the J.C. Higgins model 41. I bought from my cousin for $15 when I was 12. He was also in the Scouts but was 4 years older. I'm pretty sure the Higgins was the same rifle as the Stevens, made for Sears by Stevens but branded J.C. Higgins.

I wanted it because of shooting at Tiak the year before and that year too.
