    New to me Sears Ranger 101.16 .22 Cal with scope

    Hello Milsurp Friends!

    Just wanted to show my recent acquisition of a Sears Ranger 101.16 .22 Cal "Garand" look-a-like.

    I wish to thank all the forum members who contributed a wealth of information about these, as I had never heard of them before.....and, frankly, do not even remember how I came across them....was doing a Google search for something and looking at images.

    Cannot give details until I hold it, see it and shoot it. It comes with the 4X scope in the photo on a TO3 mount, according to the description. I have a T1 at home, if I need to change it. The rifle appears in very nice condition. It really has no place in my milsurp collection other than it kinda looks like an M1icon. I already have a JC Higgins .22 with a scope. Hey, it's an old gun, so I guess I like it. It is unique. Maybe I could use it in a Rim Fire Sporter match?

    Anyway.....it will soon be enroute to my FFL, who will hold it until I get home from Afghanistan. It's nice to have a dealer do that for you. I had become a regular customer and have a good rapport with them.

    Based on prices I have seen in the completed listings and from those commented on the forums, I think I did average at $500.

    Nice little rifle, we see them occasionally here too. Very nice catch...I'd love to try it out.
