Can't forget the Colt Lightning!
I've always liked the pump rifle. As a boy we had Winchester 61.
(not ours, just a random internet picture)
We called it 'sideways sally' because it would key-hole all the time. It wasn't very accurate. It's barrel was in such rough shape it just sounded different from all the other 22s, I figure it was letting a some gas pass around the bullet.
See, my Grandfather bought it used at a farm sale when he was a lad of 14 or so, in the middle of the great depression. He would hunt jackrabbits with it. (They used be as thick as locusts here, but were all but wiped out) You'd get a few penny bounty from the government for every jack in addition to a the meat. He'd hide the gun in the fields and go to any farm foreclosure sales. Back then the rules of hospitality were such that even if your farm was bankrupt and the bankers were forcing you to sell off every possession you had, you were expected to feed your 'guests'...i.e. the people who would bid on
the bank's goods. So the farm-wife would hand out bun sandwiches and glasses of water to all who were there. Of course the idea was you'd only invited the people who were honest buyers, and those were the only ones who expected to get fed. So Grandpa could hide his rifle and pretend he was there with plans to buy. And sometimes he DID buy a tool or so that his Dad's farm needed, but if he had his rifle he'd have been chased off as simply a guy looking to get a free meal (which he was, but in reality that meant he'd skip the meal at home leaving more for his brothers and sisters. Tough times for all parties involved make what is morally right and wrong not be so clear)
Anyways he'd buy the cheapest 22 cartridges he could find, by the handful not by the boxful. This was often off-brand 22 short cartridges which had to be single-loaded as the'd not feed well out of the magazine. There were frequently squib loads and when that happened he'd have to use a long piece of stiff wire to drive the bullet back out of the barrel by just tapping on it a few thousand times. That's why the barrel is so rough.
In the 1910s and 20s it really seemed like pump action rifles were getting quite popular (along with more modern lever actions like the Savage 99) guns like the Remington 14 for the deer woods and PLENTY of pump action 22s.
I've always wondered if the depression years put some stigma on this design in the eyes of people for the next 20-30 years, and if that had anything to do with them fading away.
I used to say I'd love it if someone reintroduced the Lightning modernized up a bit, in 357 or 44 magnum. Same basic gun just don't bother with the case-hardened finish and the metal butt plate, basically modernize it the way a lot of lever actions are.
Some Israeli firm came out with the 'timberwolf' which I was really excited about but when I actually laid eyes on it I was not impressed.
oh well, maybe someday there will be another company who has a better eye for lines who can just take the basic lightning design and modernize it and charge about the same as Marlin does for their lever action rifles.
