A Guy was talking at work about an old 22LR he had and didn't care much for. I told him if he didn't want it I would take it from him. Well he brought it in and I put it all back together.

I did a search and found this rifle to be made from 1932 to 1936. Sears was the distributor but the manufacture in not known. The only numbers or markings on the gun are (Ranger 101-16) It is a single shot bolt rifle. It has a mag tube and you rack the bolt back and then push it forward you have got to lock the bolt handle in for the rifle to shoot. It is a neat looking little rifle.

 

If anyone else can find out any info on this just let me know.

       Bd,according to the blue book,that is a Savage model 6,87. I've got an old NRA firearms assembly handbook with the Model 6 in it. When my wife gets home I'll see about posting it for ya.

I believe a number of these were manufactured by Marlin usually under the brand name JC Higgins, will have a look for you.  Any other stamp marks?
 
Have a look at this site in the meantime:

     Bd,if your rifle is the one I mentioned,and from what you described it is,working the bolt in and out(not back and forth) controls the semi-auto/manual modes of operation. I'll get this article to you this evening.

Thanks guys.
Dose any of the book have a round about value on it. If i'm not mistaken I seen it sold for 15$.
 
300,
You might be right. the bolt work back and forth like normal but the bolt handle slides in and locks the bolt closed for a single shot.
 
Dogger,
The only other number/marking are 22LR,22SR  Other than that nothing.
 
 
This gun has been taken care of.No rust the wood has not been reworked and not any big marks on it.
 
Thanks again.

            Bd,according to the Blue book,99% of Sears Roebuck and related label guns get priced by their shootability factor,not collectability. Even under the Savage section a 100% pre war model is only worth $150(maybe a little more now since my book is the 24th edition).
             According to the NRA book your rifle will only work in semi-auto mode when using .22LR and with the bolt handle pulled out. For manual mode with .22Long,short,and evidently Long Rifle,the bolt handle is pushed in when the breech bolt has been moved forward to the closed position with a cartridge in the chamber. To cycle another rnd you pull out on the bolt handle,retract the the bolt to extract and eject then either feed one by hand or through the mag tube. The book also says rifles designated Savage Model 6,Stevens Model 87 and Model 87K,and Springfield Model 76 are essentially identical. The book has an exploded view and picures w/directions for disassembly.

 I have an old model 87 Stevens that my Dad left me.  He had a dim old 3/4 inch tube .22 scope on it, a Weaver, I think. I am going to restore it someday, as it is a bit beaten up.
 As a young boy, I watched that big, strong farmer lean into the doorframe of the front porch on our old farmhouse, take a deep breath and squeeze that looooong trigger pull, picking a starling off the tip of a big old hickory tree 170 yards away! It fell like a brick.
 Instant hero!
 ( Not that he wasn't already one in my eyes....)

Thats the one.
 I took her apart yesterday and gave her a good cleaning. I shot it a fre times. This is one accurate little rifle. i was shooting the caps off a coke bottle at 50 yards in no time.At 100yards i was hitting the inter ring of a pie plate.This was with the iron sights.
 
Thanks a ton 300,
I printed them off for easy referance later.
 
 
Ronk,
Thats pretty neat. Sounds like you had a great father.

 I think they made pretty good barrels. The reciever is pinned to the barrel, not threaded, so that needs to be tightly fitted for it to shoot well.  Also- keep in mind  that the safety works backwards compared to many others. (I assume yours has a sliding thumb safety on the right side of the receiver that is "SAFE" in the FORWARD position, unlike Remingtons, etc.) You just have to keep that in mind when you are hunting, etc.

The trigger is pretty bad, though. It has a stamped linkage with a lot of pins in it that get worn over time, making for a long pull.
 
 You're right about my Dad. He was the best. Gone 18 years now, and I sure miss him.
 
  Enjoy that little rifle. It needs to go squirrel hunting occasionally.

Oh yeah it will be taken no doubt. My 9 year old is jumping up and down wanting to shoot it.So he will be the first to take it hunting. I snaped a few pic's of it.

 It looks so much like mine it's scary, right down to the degree of gloss in the finish of the stock.  The metal on mine is all disassembled and "in the white" at the moment though. A project in the works, if you will...
 It's  been on hold for about a year now. No TIME!  Sad
