Default Info on a Armscor Model 1600 22lr?

If anyone can tell me about this rifle I would be grateful. I have had it tucked away in the safe for about 15 years and it is in need of some TLC. I would like to have an idea how it breaks down so I can strip it for a good cleaning. I did shoot it a few times when I first got it but its been sitting ever since.

Its blurry but the writting after model 1600 is -cal. 22lr

I see a few on gunbroker.com for sale for around 200 bucks. Not interested in selling, just looking for info on it.

Thanks in advance,

TD

I have one that I am in the process of turning into an "Evil Black Rifle". Not too bad to tear down, you have to take it out of the stock and unscrew the back of the action to remove the firing pin and spring assembly. It's a neat little .22, mine works great and is pretty darn accurate, magazines are dang expensive. No real need to tear it down, hose it out with gunscrubber and give it a shot of CLP or remoil on the bolt and it's kinda like a Marlin 60, just keep shooting it.

Here's the latest pic of mine, still waiting to get a bipod and a weaver rail to mount a light on it... yeah, it's a lot of time to put in on a .22, but like I said, its a neat little rifle! I milled the inside of the carrying handle to take a standard AR weaver rail adapter, mounted a Center Point 3-9x32 adjustable objective scope with red/green illuminated mildot reticle, a barrel shroud and upper handguard that I fabricated.



barrel shroud



scope



handguard (crappy iPhone pic, sorry)

Wow, you are really tricking yours out. I really like the handgaurd, great job. I have two mags for mine so I dont need to worry about buying another for a while. I am going to take it out to the range next week and run a few rounds out of it to get a feel for it.

The handguard is actually a piece of regular PVC pipe, split lengthwise then a taper put on the front, the holes are just drilled out on a drill press then sanded a bit to oblong them with a dremel drum sander. Couple of coats of automotive sandable primer then a few coats of satin black. Uses velcro strips to hold it on, had to make it so it comes off as the carrying handle slides forward to be removed.

For ammo make sure you use a high velocity. I messed around a bit with several different ammo types, it ate everything except for the regular velocity Remington from walmart, it really liked the CCI Blazer and Stinger ammo. It did fine with the Remington Thunderbolt too.

Good info and thanks. I am looking forward to cleaning mine up and running some rounds through it when it stops rainning down here.
