    Hy Hunter was an importer and often assigned product names locally. Some of the guns they sold were made by several different makers.

    That's what I thought too! How would I find out who manufactured the pistol?

    This is a Bienlein conversion and they used to be very common in Germany, mostly made by Lothar Walther. Installation of the barrel insert is pretty fast and easy after fitting the insert to the barrel's forcing cone. Loading the ammo into the large shells and unloading them is tedious but the accuracy is surprisingly good. Yet, the POI is a little off. The cases are self centering, so that the rim will be hit.





    The barrel insert consists of several parts that are inserted from the front and back and screwed together, this photo explains it pretty well.

    As to the question, why we don't see more photos of that Colt. I bought it in Chicago back in 1985 and gave it to my son last year when he graduated police academy. I got a replacement, unfired from 1972. This one isn't a rimfire but I hope that you guys still enjoy the photo of this beauty. Even I do not shoot it a lot and I shoot all my guns.

    Need to show the Walther PPK/s 22 I recently added to the stable. I've owned several PPKs over the years and every one of them was simply a slice-n-dice; left the web of my shooting hand bloody. Never had a problem with my Manurhin PP but the PPKs jess did me dirt. So I finally decided to test the PPK/S to see if the longer grip was a web saver and so far it's been great. So maybe a PPK/S in 32acp might be on the horizon.

    I can share a few pictures.... I have been collecting .22 firearms for a long time. I try to rotate them but some may only be fired once a year or so. Others, due to no parts available if I break them, don't get fired at all. My "favorite" .22 changes frequently.

    The guns I am posting here get fired often. I enjoy shooting steel plates as well as bowling pins. I wish I was better at it but am happy doing it at my level.

    The first picture is a S&W Victory that I have modified for steel plates. I used both Tandem Kross and Volquartson parts....

    The second gun is a .22lr 1911 from Kimber's Custom Shop...

    The third gun is a custom plate gun which I put together on the GSG 1911 platform. I used parts from CW, Volquartson, and Tandem Kross....

    The last picture is a Rock Island Armory .22lr 1911. It is a very nice does everything well gun and I get a lot of enjoyment out of it. It also has the benefit of being easily converted to .45 acp....

    Nice set of .22s; those grips are stunning. Wow.

    And Andy, that is a gorgeous example of Colt craftsmanship.
