Looking for an old .22 bolt action or semi auto .22 rifle with a department store or hardware store brand on it. (i.e., JC Higgins, Ted Williams, Coast to Coast, etc...) these are usually rebranded rifles from the large manufacturers and often feature lower end stocks and fittings, etc... Trying to locate within the Olympia/Tacoma area. Thanks!

I could put a sears sticker on my marlin 80dl. lol.
Why a branded one specifically? (out of curiosity)

My dad has a JC higgens but I doubt he wants to sell it, it is almost exactly the same as my marlin 80dl just tube fed instead of mag fed. Neither of them have serial numbers.

Because I want one with a store brand name on it, that should suffice.

I've got 4 vintage .22 rifles, adding another variant to the mix is interesting.

So back to the original point of this whole post. Who has a store branded .22 in the Olympia-Tacoma area they want to sell?:D Only reply so far is out in Arlington, with demands I make phone calls, not casual email.

FYI



There were guns bought and sold for a couple hundred years before 'e-mails' ever came along ....

best of luck

And since you couldn't even be bothered to give me even the most basic information about your rifle (like the model number) why should I waste a phone call to you? Presumably you would have been just as incapable of articulating over the phone what the rifle is, as you were via email. Marketing fail.
