    I was comparing my 1970s 22LR WesternField to a new 22LR Model60. The steel and machine work today cannot be compared to guns of yore. The magazine springs in the Marlins been changed twice, no to mentioned the cracked trigger housing. The Wards is solid and made to last generations. I dare say were the Wards 22lr still made it would be a $1200 gun by today’s prices. I forget what. My dad paid for it. Prolly idunno $100? It still has a shiny bore and with that 24" barrel it could split hairs. Sure there are tool marks on the bolt but tolerances are lock tight. The stock is probably ash? It’s a hard white wood, pallet? The barrel mounts to the stock with a single. Steel screw and stamped steel inlay. Oh and the trigger, crisp and short . It came from the factory that way, I didn’t have to buy springs from mcarbo to get it there . I might do a video. Wish I saved the weaver 4x scope but the focus knob rusted and I put a freebie scope from a Howa on it

    The trigger guard thing in my opinion upgrades the gun appearance wise. The inlay part took some commitment. Trainer, or squirrel rifle? The cheek piece seems unusual for that vintage. They must have had scoping it in mind.

    They hold twenty rounds of .22lr, 23 of .22 long and 30 rounds of .22 short. They have a 26" barrel. Adjustable trigger. (Lowest weight I have been able to safely set it at is 1.75 lbs before the sear will not hold the firing pin back.) The only difference between the 46, 46b, 46b(a), 46b(b) is the arrangement of the types of sights. They had a couple of swing away rear peep sights, a couple of mid barrel types of adjustable open sights and a few types of front sights. The combination of any of these sights dictated the model number. These were high end target guns back in the day. The barrels were lead lapped for smoothness. These are full sized rifles that small statured people may have trouble shooting if not from a bench. My personal favorite guns for target shooting. Load it up on Sunday, and shoot it all week.

    Got mine when I was 7 and Dad taught me to shoot. Killed many a squirrel with it in the mountains. Mine has a rear peep on it. Your bolt is not original. Many changes to yours.
