Anybody heard of these? Good bad? Don't see much on them
Never heard of it. Do you have a photo?
Looks like it would be a model spr22, imported from Russia.
Back about 1978 or so there was a company sleaving Savage and Springfield (mainly the 311) and other double barrel shotguns to make double rifles or cape guns (combo rifle/shotgun) out of them. As I remember it cost around $300 per barrel and they offered .30-40 Krag, .30-06, and .45-70 calibers with the -06 costing a little more because the extractors took more exact fitting. I shot a 12 gauge / .45-70 once and it worked pretty good...the sites were set for the .45-70 at about 75 yards and the 12 gauge hit close enough to be useful hunting deer or hogs with 00 buck shot. I would assume that this is one of these if its on an American-made action.
I also recall Remington importing some double rifles made in Russia in either .30-06 or .45-70. I put in standing orders for one of these in .45-70, but never was able to get one. They were supposed to retail around $1,000.
Those russian guns are being imported again, i think the company that brings in wolf ammo is doing it. I saw something about them in shot show coverage but do not remember the specifics.
I'll have to check again! I've ALWAYS wanted a double rifle, but could never afford one of the really good ones!
Well I have a guy I was wanting to trade a 9mm ar with. Have $200 worth of mags but he claims his is 1200-1300 new and thinks it's still worth it. I found a couple for 750-800. He said he is having trouble selling it because nobody knows what it is and if you can even get replacement parts. Wanted me to throw in $200 and I just don't see it.
