    222 Varmint Special

    Howdy. Thought you would like to see a very nice 1958 Remington BDL 222 Varmint Special. Gun is flawless and not only beautiful but shoots good. 22 grains of H335 and some Dogtowns from Midway. To my knowledge this is the only Rifle Remington made with a heavy barrel.

    1978? I have one in 7mm-08. Sweet rifles for sure. Up until recently, they were the only heavy barrel Remington made but for the .22RF 541Ts. I'm not fond of nor have kept up on the recent models.

    Nice, I have an almost identical model dating from 1970 that I bought new in .223 when I was a fairly new Lt in the USAF, so I could shoot military ammo, and at least get brass for reloading. It still has the 4x12 Redfield scope I mounted shortly after receiving it.

    Yep sorry 1978. It came with a Simmons 24x target scope on it. Reminded me of London on a foggy day. Guess that was the scope the Bench Rest guys used back then. I will be shooting Coyotes with this one. Would hate to put a ding in it though, it is flawless, but I don't own safe queens. I use all my guns.

    Very Nice,

    I had an early 70s model BDL Heavy Barrel Varminter in .22-250. They still have heavy barrel models like the Targetmaster and the VLS, but in the classic older style I think that was the only heavy barreled model.
