I have a like new M42b with mossberg scope, mount and scope box.



The only thing missing is a hang tag.

Er, yeah. That one.

But I'd want a thumb hole stock and a real butt instead of the metal plate.

You don't want a thumb hole, your thumb goes up against the rear pad on the action, which allows you to push it closed with your thumb, so pointer/thumb flick. If you had a thumb hole you couldn't actuate the action with out releasing the grip.

The metal butt hook has a whole variety of rubber or wood butts you can bolt to it.

Anschutz catalogue is huge, full of stock accessories.

Nice to see that old ad. Here's mine:



I'm not much of a gun guy but I inherited this from my grandfather and have enjoyed shooting it since I was a kid. I currently use it to ventilate propane bottles before I take them in the recycling bin.

Not bad. It's getting smoother as it breaks in. I haven't tried any modifications to lighten it up or anything.

i kinda want marlin model 60.

im not the kind of guy that is going to build a $500-$700 rifle from a 10-22 or anything like that.

id just like a nice rimfire that shoots where i aim it, doesnt cost an arm and a leg, and is dependable.

any other recommendations?

Marlin 60s are pretty low on the totem pole as far as accuracy and dependability go. You can do some things to a 10/22 that don't cost too much and have a fine rifle. Just an aftermarket hammer on a 10/22 goes a long way toward making it a fine shooter. It is better than the Marlin out of the box.

It's inside the trigger assembly. The hammer is what strikes the firing pin. Looks very similar to the hammer of an AR-15.

I knew that. I meant what hammer? What replacement? Who do you recommend? Sorry. I should have been more specific.

Actually, I know many people that have had 60's and 10/22's and prefer the 60's, particularly in the tube fed configuration.

The trigger on the 10/22 is woeful, and the recoil buffer from the factory is a metal pin making it a very jarring gun to shoot. Plus being more expensive to begin with, it leaves many buyers with a sour taste in their mouths (unless they bought the 10/22 specifically to modify it) And the new 10/22's are hideous, plastic bits everywhere, this horrible looking paint on the reciever and barrel which they basically aren't finishing the machine work on (rough so more paint)

The 60 from the factory is a shootable gun. Reliability wise I have never heard of one that wouldn't reliably cycle atleast a few varieties of ammo (unless it needed cleaning). But there is a lack of aftermarket parts for them, although you can tweak the trigger with the normal gunsmithing route, lightly retouching the engagement surfaces as well as replacing springs.

Of the two, if you told me I could only have 1 .22 rifle, and I couldn't take it apart and tweak it other than cleaning, I'd go model 60.
