    That is something....I would bet it would be indoors....there is a great deal that goes on in 100yards outside....the slightest wiff of a brease would have effects.

    I shot small bore sillhoutte and the first time I did it I was amazed just how long it took a 22LR to go 100m

    We've all got that target we managed to create once.

    I just picked up a remington597, I wanted something cheap to shoot 9mms and 223s are going to get expensive. As far as ammo goes what is the best to shoot in these semis. I have a savage single shot and a 1953 ruger single six that will shoot anything, but today I shot 50rds through the new remington and had 6 fail to fires. ammo was remington golden. $6 per 100 dont mind paying a little more for better ammo.

    CCI Mini Mag copper jacket 40gr. I find it from $6 - $7.50 per box of hundred. I shoot it in my 10/22. About 700 rounds not a single FTE or FTF. Picked up some Winchester last week that I haven't shot yet but it was a bit cheaper, got it from Dick's Sporting goods in a bulk package. It was 2000 rounds for something like $98.00. 40gr also.

    Just picked up these two from a friend of mine, along with 1250 rounds of 17 hm2

    17 Hm2 Volquartsen ; not many of them like this out there:

    I read through some of the posts here and did a search , I could not find anybody with a Polish M48 . My local gun shop got 5 of them a year ago, all in excellent condition, each time I went in I would note one less in the display cabinet and I think, I want one of these. Well, Saturday I went to get some supplies at the gun shop armed with some Christmas money I seen that there was just one left in the cabinet and thought its now or never.

    [​IMG]

    What I really like about it is its size, It is as large and heavy as a Mouser 98 or Mosin-Nagant 91/30 but shoots .22lr.

    After getting it home I tore it down and found it to be all numbers matching and in near perfect condition, I found some wear in the feed and extractor assembly that cleaned up nice .

    I only ran two rounds through it, but it is just sweet to shoot.

    The bitch is, the snow is way to deep at the range for some distance shooting. :huh I plan to use this gun for a .22 league next summer. :D

    This is the first pistol I bought on the day I turned 21. I'm actually shocked that I haven't sold it, like so many other nice guns that I've had.

    Thank You...

    After posting that I went to the beginning of the thread and went to post 1700. What a cool thread.

    I want to also put up that I have a CZ 452 FS in 17HRM that I enjoy greatly.

    This fun this gun has given me pushed me over the cliff :rofl on buying the M48

    I did get some raised eyebrows when asked how much i paid for it, I got $25 off MSRP and was happy about it, But when you see and shoot it, It is incredible !

    [​IMG]

    A very accurate sight :deal

    [​IMG]

    Now it might come up in later posts, I had a friend when I was a youngster, that had a Winchester 94-22 I have not seen one here or at gun shows, Are they that Rare ?

    I have that rifle in the 455 .22 LR version and I like it a lot.

    [​IMG]

    I also have the 452 with the 28-inch barrel and the military sights...

    I am a big fan of the rimfires. I was on the range at sunup this morning with the two above rifles and I had a great time. I really like that Polish trainer you have, though. If I could find one like it I would buy it. Yours looks to be in exceptionally good condition. I have the Springfield M1922 (a Springfiield training rifle in .22 LR) that is is another awesome military trainer.

    I don't know about the relative scarcity of the Winchester 9422, but in general, I would take a Marlin lever action (not the new ones, but one actually made by Marlin before Remington bought them) over a Winchester.

    I wouldn't worry about others' opinions of what you pay for a good rifle. Prices continue to climb on quality firearms and yours are definitely in that category.

    I like the Mannlicher style a lot. This is a much older 10/22 some might think I paid too much for but when I saw the wood, price became relatively unimportant. This one is very accurate.

    [​IMG]

    I bought a barreled action .30 06 S&W (Howa) about 30 years ago and stocked it myself with cherry wood. I did a Mannlicher stock with a copy of Ruger's Alex Henry fore end. This one sees a lot of use. I bedded the action and floated the barrel, and it is extremely accurate just using the iron sights.

    My next project is going to be a Howa .375 Ruger action with the short 20-inch barrel (if I can find one) and I will stock it in the same style. I will probably go for a medium grade Circassian walnut if I can find a blank at a decent price. I am very impressed with the .375 Ruger cartridge and Howa makes an excellent rifle. It will make a great hog gun (although the .30-06 above does pretty well, too).

    Thanks for your kind words.

    I believe this particular 10/22 is from the 60's. I will dig the M1922 out of the safe in the next few days and post a photo. It is a pretty cool rifle.

    I just recently seen a 10/22 in a full stock, It was a new gun and I had thought that it was a new model, I did not know they had been making them for years now.

    Ruger made the Mannlicher (or International) style for a period back in the 60s/70s (or thereabouts) and then stopped. The one I showed in the photo above was manufactured in approximately 1975. They reintroduced the line recently; I think for special runs for Walmart and others. They did a laminate stocked version for Walmart, and different walnut variations for others. You could build up a sizeable collection of Rugers focused just on the 10/22 if you wanted to; there have probably been at least 70 variations of that rifle. Maybe more. There are 35 currently-available variants listed on Ruger's site today (http://www.ruger.com/products/1022DE/models.html). Ruger has produced over 6 million of these rifles and it is described as the highest production volume rifle ever made (although that is obviously not true, as there have been something on the order of 75 million AK 47s manufactured).

    Here's an interesting article on the 10/22: http://www.shootingillustrated.com/index.php/22082/ruger-1022/
