I have a Winchester 1890 .22 with the special order nickel plated receiver and crescent butt plate. I'm not an expert on this very popular .22 and someone told me it was only available in only .22 short. Mine is .22 LR, could it have been factory made that way? It is not a a high grade gun, but in very decent shape.

They were made in 22 LR and 22 WRF also.


I learn something every day, and a lot of times it's that what I learned the day before was wrong

The majority of guns were .22 short then .22 Winchester Rim Fire and the fewest in .22 LR. Because the cartridge carrier was only set up for 1 cartridge they are not interchangeable. The later designs included a stop on the end of the carrier allowing the use of S-L-LR . The WRF is similar in size to the .22 Magnum Rim Fire but not interchangeable and quite a bit les powerful. They made take downs and solid frames. My gun was my Grandfather's. He died in the flu epidemic of 1918. Mine was re-barreled to LR. As for original finishes I'm really not sure. They were used a lot in shooting galleries.

A nickel receiver deserves a Cody letter.

To get the Cody letter you write to the museum in Cody Wyoming?

Carl,
Yes, The Cody Museum.

There are lots of the shorts, I think, in part, because they were often used as gallery guns.

I have one as well. Mine used to be shorts only, but it was converted to LR. Many a mile and many smile from that gun. It was passed down to me when I was very young. I used it well, and still do.

I see no one has mentioned the .22L, I have one from 1904 marked 22L, octagon barrel. Maddis states more 22L's than .22LR's but less than .22S and .22WRF.

I see CCC and Winchester still make .22 Long, have you shot either?
