    In the hunt, so to speak for a good basic target .22 pistol. I had a Mark III back in the day, and I'd like another. Is this a good way to go for the money? My wife is also interested in getting into pistols. A .22 is definitely the way to go here. A Mark III? I'm thinking a standard bull barrel in satin stainless. Thoughts?

    Sure thing...there should be some better (not cell phone) pics in this or the general gun thread, but this is the one I found off hand.....I was out with it and my new (year old) CZ and shooting them both....I really like both rifles and both are dead on balls accurate, but the CZ has just a tad bit better sites for my old eyes.

    I wanted to add for some reason the mauser LOVES sub sonic ammo....with other stuff, and I tried lots it tends to send one off to never never land once and a while....with subsonic everyone will be right were I want it to go. And if you thing normal 22 takes a while to go 100yards you should try a sub sonic.....first time I shot I thought I missed all together....but then ting.....oh I did hit it.

    Man I love that mauser....I just need new eyes.

    Some people may poo poo them but I bought a beretta neos and really like the thing. It is made for people with smaller hands like myself, so if you have big bear paws you may not like it. I also bought the carbine kit (little spendy) but man did that make it into a super fun gun.

    I shooting (and I suck) can hit 12 6" plates in a row off hand at 50 yards with mine in the hand gun configuration..and do it pretty darn quick...plenty good enough for me. It also has the rail built into the top so it is easy to add a red dot or something else if you would like that.

    And let me tell you if you are trying to get your lady intrested there is nothing better than shooting and hitting what you are aiming at....and a red dot or laser after you get it setup is great for that.

    I love mine. Added a holographic sight. works great. I have several thousand rnds through it with no issues. Not picky about ammo, disassembly is easy, rail is a big plus.

    I like Mark IIIs too, but this one felt better to me. About the same price.

    LOVE my Neos! The rail is great - I have a big Mall-Wart red dot on mine sometimes and feel like Han Solo. Pretty accurate IMHO. What do you think of the carbine kit? I heard it was a bit small for adults. I've been hankering for one for a year, but the thought that it'd be too small makes me leary.

    Got a chance to go camping this past weekend. Took the #71 and some targets, and my 13 year old son.

    Great shooting gun, it's a light, accurate and a nice looking rifle.

    When he has a auto loader in his hands it can sound like a war zone...this is a bit of a change: the drop lever action and manual hammer is a "one at a time" deal...he learned quickly how to be smooth and accurate. Ammo lasted a lot longer too!

    The carbine kit is on the small side, but it is very shootable for a bigger guy, my neighbor is 6'+ and finds it just a hoot to shoot.

    I think it is also a little spendy....you can get a pretty good 22 rifle for the price of the kit, but man it just doubles the fun.

    Great tip about the subsonic ammo. :thumb

    Just sent the paperwork in, I hope to hear in a few days about a Romanian M69 in .22lr I found. :clap

    That commerative "Crackshot" would have been produced during the 71/72 time period based on my memory from that time period. A scoped take down model is on my "bucket list".:D

    They come up quite often on Gunbroker and Auctionarms. Keep an eye open on your local auctionarms site, good chance of snagging one locally. :deal

    I like to see the guns in person before buying, I am very selective about what I get, so I rarely buy on auction sites or online without great pictures and documentation. That being said, I will start to monitor those sites and see what comes up and go from there. Other than that, I will continue to search the tables at gun shows and, when I get sent on the road for work I have a network of cool little gun shops that have interesting stuff for me to check out in my travels.


    Ride safe !

    800 is actually not too bad....mine was actually a tad bit more than that. That cell phone pic does not show it but it is in real nice shape with nice color....That CZ above it is fresh out of the box....I almost did not post up the pic as it looks like total hell.

    Got one.....you are going to love that thing. I bought mine about 10 years ago box fresh....then the bacement flooded and I lost ALL the boxes to ALL my rifles....talk about pissed. The guns all OK, but to lose the boxes that really ticked me off.

    Yep it's a single. Very accurate even with the cheap glass on it. I think the rifle is from 1929.

    My new collection. The target is my dickin around with the new Savage. First day at the range, haven't shot in a few years. Standing, supported on my elbows. Not great, but I'm happy with it. A little more zeroing with a proper rest and it'll be a tack driver.
