The iron sights are adjustable. At least they are on my 10/22. The rear has an elevation adjustment. Left/right is more difficult, but I recall you can drift the rear sight side-side?

I bought a remington 597 back in dec and the iron sights were so far off I returned the gun, I got it back and they saiid it was fixed, been super cold so I havent had a chance to shoot it. I feel like the barrel was crooked when it was drilled. I have a feeling I got a lemon.

I'm going to add a bipod and call it done for a while, might do some trigger work in the future, the stock trigger is stiff....stiffer than my 870!



Blackhawk R/F Axiom stock
Sweet 22 scope (which lives up to its name....very nice for the $$)
Stock clear mags with Shadyrascals tri-mag adapers...very cool!
Weaver shoot-through 1" rings

Minor rant....much as I like the tri-mags, the reason I have to run them is the hi-cap restriction in CA. All it does in this case is costing me major $$. Those tri-mags (I have 2) costs a total of about 120$ and holds 30rds each.

So 2 30rd mags (essentially) for about 230 bucks.

At least the gunrest was cheap, found the design idea on Google, 5 bucks in supplies later.....

Few questions:
1: Got the scope sighted in pretty well, but I have problems with eye relief/deflection/distortion. (not sure if that's the term I'm looking for) Basically, the distortions your eye creates by looking into the scope...does this get better with practice? I noticed if I am really disciplined and stay still, control my breathing it's not an issue.

2. The sight is zeroed for 100 and 25yds, but the iron sights are off, it shoots high and to the right. This is concerning, to say the least, as they are fixed to the gun. I checked it a few times from a gun rest to be sure. It's off.

Thoughts?
My thoughts are: WHy would you pay $230 for two magazines???? Would have been much better to spend the money on an aftermarket trigger group or better scope.

It's 2 "groups" of 3 mags.

6 Factory mags total=60 rounds=2 tri-mags.

With the current insanity, the clear ones were about 30 bucks each on fleabay and Shadyrascals tri-mag runs 12 bucks.

I'm sure if I drove around I might have found some, but I'm an impatient bastard.

5 for 150

1 more to make 6, 30 bucks

2 tri-mag adapters= 23 bucks shipped.

So 203 dollars exactly.

I stand corrected. Still, too friggin much but I hate reloading.

Could be a couple of things. If the scope is mounted outside the eye relief range you won't see a full view and it will change as you move side to side and up and down. Move the scope forward and back in the rings until you get a full view in the position you like to shoot. Could also be the focus. That ring at the back should be focus ring. Look into the scope for a second then look away and turn it one or two full turns. Look through the scope again and see if it the view is better or worse. If better, keep going in that direction. If worse, go the other way.

Drift the rear sight the direction that it needs to shoot. Get a nylon drift punch so you don't mar the finish and use a hammer of an appropriate size. For vertical I think that sight has a small screw on the rear face that lets you move the center part of it up and down. If not, you can change the front sight to a higher or lower as appropriate.

My latest addition - a LH Savage Axis in .25-06 that's going to be the focus of several project build articles on my website site this year.



Modifications will include:
Timney Trigger (done)
True & Time Action
Flute the Bolt Body
Customize Bolt Knob
Shilen 7mm 1-9 twist barrel in .284 Win - medium sporter contour
Custom Stock (either laminate or walnut - haven't decided yet)
DNZ GameReaper Scope Mount/Rings

THe plan is to keep the total cost of the build under $1300 (what a Surgeon action runs) just to show once again you don't have to spend $3,000 plus to have a tack driving, full custom rifle. That price includes the price of the donor rifle, but not the scope. I should come in about $150 under my target price - but I do still have to get an actual price on the bluing or parkerizing work as right now I just have a rough guess-timate.

Just passed the NRA Basic Pistol Instructor's Course after three days in the classroom and on the range. Nine guys, including four Army vets of various vintage and two LEO.

After the last range session for the course we got to bring out all our POW. Wow, what an impromptu gun show! But the winner was a broomhandle Mauser. Similar to this one.

Does the front end look extra chunky because it's got a laser built in?

I like the sight - that's an interesting variation.

Hope you can find 9MM for it. I was at two gun stores today, found .40 but not a round of 9 to be had.

Nice case.

Nah, it's just thick down on the front to accommodate the rail.

The barrel also sits down lower than most pistols so the frame needed to be deeper to fit all the mechanics down lower, which is the reason for the weird grip angle. All to lower the bore axis.

The only 9mm they had was blazer Al case, so I grabbed a couple of boxes.
