    I found a 1942 manufactured Win 74 chambered for .22 long rifle. I have had an interest in one for quite a while, and am keen on war era civilian arms, so when the lady behind the counter handed it to me...

    I took it to the range today and am pleased with how well it shoots. What a neat old semi-auto .22.

    As an aside, that old speedmaster shot great too. Another neat old rifle.

    YouTube has some tutorials on the Win model 74. Audio/Visual.
    Could be helpful if you want to give the old puppy a bath( Clean up.)

    I'll do that. It surely needs it.

    Wood could use some TLC for sure. Might look new if cleaned up and done correctly. Am sure the manufacture on that 74 was awesome back then. Thanks for showing.
