    My Dad had one of these and it was the first semi automatic pistol I ever shot. It was "borrowed" by one of his brothers after he died and I never saw the gun after that. Sure wish I had it today.

    I've got a High Standard Model A that looks very similar from 1939 that was my grandfathers. A very smooth gun. Mine likes the low velocity rounds vs. the newer HV stuff.

    Don't have an APV but I do have an Eradicator in silver and like it allot, very clear. I may move it to my 22 hornet and buy an APV for my 10/22. Have never heard a bad report on them.

    TexBiker,
    That is a very, very nice gun! What a beauty, when guns have a history it makes them all the more special. I hope you and your family enjoy it.

    That is beautiful, I'd say he must think very highly of you to hand that down to your family.

    The woodsman is a fantastic pistol....take care in shooting it however....some needed upgrades (springs and such) to fire modern ammo. I have a pre-woodsman...colt made the guns for a time without "the woodsman" printed on the side...they are usually called pre woodsman, but they are the same gun....in my gun I only shoot sub sonics in it....be careful you can damage it even shooting standard vel. 22 ammo if it has not been upgraded.

    There are also several different series of the gun, and while a mag may from a series 3 will fit in a series 1, it will not work real well....you can usually tell the different series of mags by looking at the very top...some have little fingers, as well as a few other changes.

    This and things like high standards are just of such high quality...nothing modern can come close to these.

    My lightweight 10/22 plinker, for wandering the woods hunting pine cones and pop cans, and maybe the occasional 4-legged or winged target. Pretty much gutted and rebuilt with aftermarket goodies to minimize weight for all day toting: Barrel - Magnum Research MagnumLite Carbon Fiber barrel. Stock - Choate pistol grip, I skeletonized the butt, and chopped & filled in the fore end, then painted with Krylon “Make It Stone” spray paint in blue Lapis (weird name, decent color). Trigger Group: Clark Custom Upgrade from Magnum Research - Deluxe Trigger Kit, Tuned Extractor and Bolt Release. Thanks to a mixup on the part of MR or the distributor when I purchased the gun, it came with the Clark Upgrade when I didn’t order it, so my local gun shop gave it to me at no charge. Bolt reworked and various aftermarket internals added. Bedded the receiver block and 2 inches of barrel bedded with epoxy putty. 3 pounds 11 ounces, and more accurate than I'll ever be.

    I was at my ammo dealer this weekend, He had a video playing from CCI about how they make rimfire rounds. Then I heard what the daily production numbers were......

    7 million rounds per day :eek1

    I did a search of all ammo manufacturers, they are near 1 billion rounds per week for all calibers.

    And I can not find a single round :cry

    That barrel is sweet. I sort of wish I had gone that route. My Green Mountain 18" Bull is almost too heavy to carry. Granted the gun is scary accurate, but if you cannot shoulder it to knock rats out of the tree, what good is it.

    I'd love to see a long term review on the barrel and how well the gun stays true. With a heavy gun like mine I think it would take a seerious beating to knock it out of alignment.

    It's all pretty weird.

    I was looking a few days ago to see if there might be some CCI Mini Mag available yet. Only thing I found was a box of 100 for $35.

    That's more than I paid for 500 rounds last year.

    Matt,

    The photo is from 2005, and I've had the gun a year or two longer than that. It's been knocked around and used plenty, and it's still as accurate as when it was new - with the right glass, 1/2 inch at 50 yards (at best, in my hands anyway). Somewhere along the line, Magnum Research quit making the barrel with the compensator, which probably makes no difference at all. I'll never have the refined technique and shooting savvy to appreciate any meaningful difference between a noncompensated and a compensated barrel in .22lr.

    I picked up 100 rounds for $8 a couple weeks ago. The store I buy from had 6 cases of 1600 rounds of mini mag about a month ago. Sold them at $100 each.

    I got this little rifle back in January because I wanted to try my hand at refinishing a gun. Thought I Better practice on something cheap, so I found this M-69 online for a $109 shipped .

    It was as rough as I expected but was also very good where it counted, in the bore. And bolt

    It came well preserved

    I sent all the metal to a local gunsmith who does great work, Just need to be patient He had the parts for three months, They polished and reblued the metal . I did the stock on my free time.
