Gun Tests, I think, carried a small article on a smooth barrel .22 rifle for improved shot patterns vs a rifled barrel. I'd like to purchase one. Does anyone know of this rifle and where it could be obtained? I have e-mailed Gun Tests this question as well. I could not find it on their website.

Hey Osprey21! Thank you. I may have spent hours trying to locate that smoothbore.

Model 572™ BDL™ Smooth Bore

Specially designed for our #10 shot 22 Long Rifle shells, often called "rat shot," the Model 572 BDL Smooth Bore is the perfect gun for shooting rats, snakes, small birds, and other small targets. The shotgun-like smooth bore barrel prevents damage to the shot and helps improve patterns downrange.

This traditional pump-action rimfire rifle is nearly identical to our classic Model 572 BDL Deluxe Fieldmaster except for the barrel. Traditional features include a high-gloss Monte Carlo walnut stock with cut checkering, blued metalwork, a shotgun-style front bead sight, and a positive cross-bolt safety. This smooth bore rimfire shoots shorts, longs, and long rifle cartridges interchangeably from its easy-loading tubular magazine.

The Model 572 BDL Smooth Bore will only be available in limited quantities. Have your local dealer contact Zanders Sporting Goods for ordering details.

My buddy has a Remington Fieldmaster smooth bore .22. We had it at the range this last weekend it was not very accurate. I had the same but with the rifled barrel when I was a kid and I remember it to be very accurate. My eyesight is also much more poor now as well.

for yalls accuracy comments and such. duh it will be less accurate with a smoothe bore. i mean from my knowledge rifleling is much more accurate thats why it was made right?

Gunboy, you missed the point. Rifling is for bullets. We are discussing shot pellets and the improved delivery with a smoothbore vs. rifling.

My Grandpa gave me a Remingtom 121 smooth bore for my 8th birthday(1956), what great fun!

Wish now I would have been smart enough to keep it.
