22 cal semi automatic rifle - help identify

#1

Post by cprems » Thu Apr 12, 2018 10:47 pm

Guys,

I purchased a few guns at an estate sale and need some help identifying this .22 rifle, It doesn't have a serial or any manufacturer.

I also purchased an 1871 BSAC Snider-Enfield rifle,
1 - chinese 93 Norinco SKS,
2 -1954r Tula (has the russsian star) russian (matching numbers) SKS

Any help with either pricing for the rifles or identifying the .22 is greatly appreciated.

Looks like an old Mossberg to me... perhaps a Model 352KB?

Thanks for the reply. I believe its going to be the 151-M-B. It doesn't have a serial number which is curiously odd. After doing some more research, apparently this was made sometime before 1957. It has a Weaver scope on it. i'll take it in to my local gun store and get them to look at it.

I think you found it! Looks like that one is tube fed where the 352 has a removable magazine. The finger grooves is what pointed me to Mossberg... have a couple of bolt action shotguns that have the same finger grooves!

Those SKS rifles should bring a pretty penny. I wouldn't be surprised if you pull $400 for the Norinco, based on prices I have seen.

Yep, have a very similar Mossberg, though off the top of my head I can’t remember if it has the band on it as well. Regardless it shoots fine and is a fun little rifle. Loading via the tube makes it easy.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

The Norinco is the SKS-M Paratrooper.It accepts the AK-47 mags in original form, no conversion. It's a nice one for sure.

Prior to the GCA of 1968 serial numbers were not required on many firearms, .22 rimfire rifles were among that category.

I'm actually looking to part with them all. I purchased them at an estate sale. There are 2 Enfields left, 1917 & 1947 or 43. Shoot me a PM and we can discuss!
