Sounds like you chose wisely in many areas.
I have a Henry in .22WMR with an octagon barrel that is my favorite rimfire. I also have a .22LR that I regret not getting without the octagon barrel.
One thing I just might have to get is a 17HMR. That's the only ammo (besides shotgun) on the shelves right now.
Ruger 10/22 take down model? Any reason not to pick one up vs. the regular 10/22? Thanks
The sole reason I can see is price. They have drifted the servicable 10-22 into the medium fine (CZ etc) price category.
But that is the only reason I can see. I haven't checked "street pricing" recently. Only when they were brand new.
I'm picking mine up tomorrow morning
It costs a bit more, but I like the packability of it. It's like the grown-up version of the AR-7 I had as a kid.
I'm partial to this:
The next upgrade are Hornet trigger, Kidd checkered block, and firing pin!
My Hogue 10/22 already has the best Hornet trigger, but it could use the checkered block, firing pin, and pull handle... maybe magazine release...
Money pit :)
So, being a take down version, it wouldn't be any less accurate than a non take down version?
Its .22LR; i have not noticed any difference...
Very cool money pit.
Is that hinged forearm something that you built?
If so, do you have pics of how you built it?
If not, do you have a link to the mfg.?
Never mind......I found it.
Sometimes me don't search before me ask dumm questions.
The Henry .22 shot low and left but grouped nicely at 25 yds. The Ruger 10/22 shot low and right at 25 yds also with a decent group . The Model 36 chief put 4 of 5 in an 8" bull at 25 yds. Fun times today.
Two salesman who sold it to me are also gun smiths and they were scratching their heads, off to remington I feel i should get a new gun, I know how these factory fixes go.
Out of the box at 25, 50 and 75 yards (I ran out of gravel pit), mine killed a shit ton of navel oranges this weekend. Best fun money I've spent in a while.
We had a "plinking" session at the range Saturday. Lots of fun. The two hits of the day were ice and full pop cans. For the ice, we froze red beer cups full of water and placed the ice on the berm, which is about 60 yards from the shooting positions.
That's exactly what I was thinking about doing next time - thanks for the tip!
Just bought my first handgun (Ruger LC9) a couple of weeks ago and have spent way to much at the range on 9mm, so figured I would buy an inexpensive .22 to save some cash on ammo - if I can find any, but that's a different thread..
Have a couple of options I am looking at. First is a used Astra Constable at a LGS. $250, seems in decent enough shape, some patchiness on the bluing, and mild surface corrosion on the plain steel parts (hammer,trigger etc) but a real neat looking gun. All functions seem to work as expected. Shop policy is they will fix any problems that arise within a reasonable amount of time after the sale.
For the same price though I can get a new Beretta NEOS from Academy - although the local store only has the two tone ($300) at which price point opens up the Browning Buck Mark and S&W equivalent option.
I used to shoot a Ruby (Llama) .22 revolver with my dad way back in my early teens, but never have used a .22 semi auto.
So, what do the experts here think?
The Browning Buckmark and Ruger 22/45 always seem to bubble to the top when folks ask for opinions for their first .22 pistol.
Or the Walther P22, which some people say can be fussy but I love mine.
I'm still hovering over the "Buy Now" button for one after weeks of research.
My Romanian M-69 came in. This gun I am putting together to do an upcoming Appleseed event in my area.
This is how it came out of the box.
I plan on spending a little time working on it...
Like getting all the Cosmoline off ... Then going to try and refinish the stock....
