Last one tonight. Catching up on sharing.

Some of the guys already saw this on Facebook but I thought the rest of you would like to see the .22 rifle equivalent of a double horned albino unicorn.

A Steyr Zephyr .22 LR. Less than 4,000 made from 1959-1970 and even fewer in this configuration. Elk Ridge texted me that he got one in his buddy’s gunstore and I bought it sight unseen because I trust him implicitly. Topped with a vintage El Paso TX Weaver K4. Thought I’d share.


While I was at the gun store picking it up I found an minty all original including sights 144 so what the heck.  It was a .22 kind’a day.

    Thank you gentlemen.  Could not have happened without the help and eagle eye of our own Elk Creek!  Got a text while I was in NOLA with the wife and she looked at it and asked if I’d like it for an anniversary gift.   Did I mention in LOVE my girl!

    Between the stock and the double set triggers it was love at first sight.

    Spent time looking for an original Zephyr but none were to be found. Broke down and bought a Zephyr ll which is a very nice rifle in it's own right. As the others have said a Hoover has nothing on you! :D

    There has s ONE poor example on GB that is priced well beyond that condition it’s in.  The others I’ve found are priced like oil leases in Texas.  If it wasn’t for Elk Creek and the fine folks at his LGS this would have never happened!  And the great news is that it came with FIVE original mags.  Those are made out of Fairy farts and Leprechaun gold! There are NONE to be found anywhere.

    The new Zephyr is a heck of a gun! I’m glad Steyr got back into the rimfire business!  They are worth every cent they charge for them.
