I have a semi-automatic, tube fed, Western Field .22 rifle.
A quick search shows this to be a re-branded Savage model 175R I believe. The firing pin busted and I ordered a replacement from Numrich.
It showed up and didn't fit due to excessive bluing. I filed it off a bit and then found it was slightly bent. I sent off an email saying "Thank you for the fast shipping for a part, that I suspect, was made in the land of "Almost".
I also thanked them for now allowing me to purchase a new .22 rifle.
Mean while the old .22 is together and works with a forward assist on the bolt action.

I am looking at a semi-automatic Marlin model 60 currently. Any other ideas?
I am not too much into spending $1400 bucks to whack squirrels either.
