Just picked up the CZ 452 over lunch today...box is sitting in my office calling me.

Going to have to get a scope mounted and everything ready....hopefully friday I will have everything ready for sight in....then next weekend is the next match.

Fit and finish looks darn good, I will be intrested to see how well it shoots.

I have 11mm rings on the way.....now I am looking for scope options. If my back pasture has dried out I may get a chance to see how it will do tonight.

First real outing will be in two weeks when the small bore match is again....don't think I will have everything ready for practice this friday.

10/22 experts....

OK, I just got my 10/22 back together and it wont cock itself.....

It cycles any ammo fine.... ejects fine.... but when you fire one round, it wont fire the nexts. ejects the spent round and loads the new round fine but not cock. pull the trigger and nothing.....

I can cock it by hand and it works fine..... I have tried alot of different ammo..... cheap to target...all the same. it has a new target trigger assembly and match bull barrel.... first time shooting it with the upgrades.... its factory clean plus some oil i put on it to start.....

any ideas??????


Thanks.

The guys at RimfireCentral.com can probably provide more info, but it sounds like the bolt isn't coming back far enough to reset the hammer when you use a round to cycle it. Did you change the bolt springs?

What trigger assembly did you install? Did you try polishing the hammer and lower surfaces of the bolt? Sometimes that can help.

What kind of rounds? Subsonic/match? Some 10/22s can get really sensitive to subsonic rounds since they don't transfer as much energy to the bolt after firing. Polishing the hammer and bolt mating surfaces can help as can radiusing the back of the bolt to give it some more curve, which will cause less drag as it rides backward and forces the hammer down.

I've had that issue with my 10/22 and sub-sonic ammo. Standard or hi-speed LR works fine.

22 ammo is some funny stuff, you have to try different things to see what your gun likes.

Looks like it may be a while on the CZ test.....hurt my shoulder again....not sure when I will be able to shoot again....right now it is looking like it may be a LONG time for centerfire, hopefully rimfire will be able to come back quicker.

A customer I'm doing a kitchen for has an AR-22 (AR-15 chambered for .22) with the standard 20 rd mag and 2 40 rd mags he's offered me for $400.
Any opinions?
I see that Gunbroker.com has several in that price range, so I'm not squiffy about the price.

Just picked it up from CA quarantine. Ruger SR22. Took forever for my FFL to track one down, but it's finally here. Now I need to free up some time to take it to the range.

I'm contemplating shooting my 89 year old 1890. It hasn't been fired in probably 40 years. My grandfather bought it back in the 70s, and it was well worn, so he had it blued. And it's not been fired since. But I've never been convinced these are worth anywhere near as much as some people ask for them, and I don't plan on ever selling it.

Would you shoot it?

All original other than the new bluing? HELL YES.

Bought some ammo for my Ruger MKIII, and being a tight ass I shopped for the cheapest deal I could find. Walmart Federal value pack 375 round for $11.00. Got two boxes. These are copper plated hollow points. First ten rounds had two that didn't want to eject. They fired, but the brass didn't want to eject.

Previous ammo was a box of 575 round for $17.00 but were just lead. Never had a problem with them. Apparently Federal doesn't make my gun happy.
