    So cool. Semi-auto with detachable magazine has been around now well over a century. Only seems to have become a problem recently. This rifle was one of the most successful of the first half of the 20th century.

    Honestly, the first time I remember discovering this rifle was in the 1912 Sears catalog. Not cheap. $22.40. See page 903.

    I think it sold until about 1959. I guess blowback was pushed off the market by gas guns.

      What else do you remember from 1912? Are you still upset about the titanic?

        The Winchester 1903 22 Winchester auto was a lot of fun to shoot

            Nah. I got done up in drag, so I was able to get in a lifeboat.
