That would be the Browning SA-22.

I happen to own a semi auto Browning grade 1 take down 22. It's a sweet little gun. I also have a Remington model 31 I think, in bolt action that may be from the 20's or 30's.

After loading nine or ten of the rounds, you pushed the tube back in and screwed it in tight. Can't remember for the life of me the manufacturer make or model.

Anyone have any clues???

Sorry guys! It was a Winchester Model 63. What tipped me off was remembering the way that you depressed a button past the forearm to load the round into the chamber. Found a picture last night on one of Winchester's web sites. The "other side" of the family has the rifle - but not the memories. I guess I'll have to hang onto those for a while.

I wouldn't mind adding one of the win 63 models to the vault.
