    Default Tir Reduit French Vichy 22 trainer

    Just wondering if anyone here has one? I have one that I'll try to dig out and show for those interested.

    I would like to see it, I am a fan of trainers in general.

    Here's mine. The black paint looks to have been refinished, I guess to make it purty.

    I only have the one cartridge that takes the 22 round. I don't know if this is original, probably not.

    Are any other trainers done this way? 22 barrel with original sized rounds modified to hold 22 cartridges?

    The Hoffer-Thompson rifle was a modification of the Model of 1903 (if memory serves correctly) that the United States used for gallery practice. Only one I can think of. Have only seen one or two of these for sale in several years. Would love to have one. Nice! dj

    I want one myself. Ian beat me to one recently with I believe 10 cartridges IIRC. All matching. Price was $1,100. Cartridges alone made it worth it.

    I am not surprised. They are pricey! A recently came across a .22 Krag. Would have loved to have it, it was in super condition, but again - very expensive.
