Historic Bolt-Action 22 Rifles: Remington Versus Winchester
For a test of vintage bolt-action 22 rifles, we pitted the Remington Nylon 12 against a Winchester Model 69A. Are these worth considering even today? Our testers say absolutely.
For this test of vintage bolt-action 22 rifles, we had the loan of two old-timers, a Remington Nylon 12 and a Winchester Model 69A. We tested with three types of ammo, Wolf, CCI Velocitor, and Blazer, all in Long Rifle persuasion. Both rifles were supposed to handle Shorts and Longs too, so we also tried a few of them. Both rifles fed Long Rifles, Longs, Shorts and also CB caps perfectly. The Winchesterís longer barrel made lots less noise with Shorts and especially the CB caps than the Remington. The report of CBís out of the long-barreled Winchester was just a click. Are these old rifles worth looking into? Letís see what we found.
