First semi was a marlin I got for my 12th birthday. Got from our local Western Auto for $48. 55 years ago this month. I had it refinished and gave it to my youngest daughter.

JC Higgins Model 30, 1952. Sold by Sears. It's the original rifle myself and my 6 younger brothers learn to shoot.
That poor rifle went though hell and back with us kids. I can't ever remember cleaning it.
I got a hold of it a few years ago from on of my brothers who had it. It was trashed. Took some work but it shoot again and looks great.

I have two Febiger No 3's marked "22 CAL LONG RIFLE CRIMPED SMOKELESS CTG." from late 1910, these have a small box on the right side of the receiver which allows them to be switched from Semi-auto to pump for shooting something other than 22 Long Rifle.

Also Savage Model 1912's

...and these that are not 22 Long Rifle -
In 22 Short - Febiger No 1 from late 1910, Batavia Automatic Rifle and Nitro-Hunter (house branded Batavia) from 1911~1912
In 22 Long - Automatische Repeitier-Teschings, System Schmeisser, Mod. 1912, siebenschüssig

My oldest semiauto is a 1920’s-30’s Marlin Model E-1.

It uses the same 7/8 round detachable magazines as the Model 80,780 series. Since I have those bolt guns, its a great match up as they can share mags.
