    Thanks To Whomever.

    By the way, for those of you who visit here. Please, don't be shy about posting your thoughts and questions concerning .22 firearms. This forum is, and not like many of the others, who childishly act the way that's done around the inter-web. As for me, every question concerning the use of .22...

    Thanks To Whomever.

    Thank you for your efforts and the results you've achieved. Being that this is somewhat of a "Boomer Forum" , I'll bet there are a bunch of members here who started their shooting experience with a .22 rimfire of some sort. Let's read about those first impressions and how it has influenced your...

    Thanks To Whomever.

    I shot off my BIG mouth, so here it is folks, the ".22 Rimfire Forum", and I'll do the first post. I shoot mostly .22 rimfire handguns and rifles, for testing and for fun, so I own a bunch of these. Most of my .22 rimfire pistols are Ruger Mark versions, and I've also worked on a bunch of those...

    It Would Be Interesting If..................

    We had a "dedicated" .22 rimfire forum here. I grew up with my very first rifle being a .22 Winchester Model 67A single shot, and from that very beginning, it grew into an almost fanatical journey to learn the most I could glean from the shooting of this caliber and the rifles that were produced...

    Your Fondest .22 Rimfire Memories

    How sad! No one else has any good memories involved with learning to shoot a .22 at a young age. My Dad and two of my "Unc's" all served in World War II and were very instrumental in teaching my cousin John and myself on how to safely handle the first firearm we ever laid hands on. Too bad...

    Dang It! Ruger

    It's too bad you've had such bad luck with your 22/45. with a little bit of "tweaking" of the factory parts and they run really well.

    Next level stress

    No doubt about it, that does [email protected]@K really nice. $3,000.00 for the set-up, does create SOME pause though. :rolleyes:

    What Makes Anschutz Rifles So Expensive?

    Lucky kids!

    What Makes Anschutz Rifles So Expensive?

    Maybe I just don't get it, but what is so dang GREAT about the Anschutz 1710 and 1712 .22 Long Rifle caliber firearms so blasted expensive. I mean, $2,300.00 to $2,500.00 for a bolt action .22 rifle, that sucker should be able to shoot through the eyeballs of a squirrel at 150 yards. OK, they...

    Ruger Wouldn't Do It

    I'll get a call now and then from an exasperated Ruger Mark pistol owner who tried to get Ruger to do some work on their pistol. Ruger just doesn't do some of the things that an owner will want done. Not even some things that will in no way jeopardize the safety of said firearm. Sending any...

    Steel challenge pistol upgrades

    Just about every town up here has a gun club of their own. For those that do hold steel challenge shoots, one can observe just about any brand of semi-auto .22 Long Rifle pistol that's ever been offered. Many of these folks who "shoot what they brung" do right well at the job at hand. Distances...

    Steel challenge pistol upgrades

    I'd suggest that if you have any "speed-steel" events near your area, that you visit a couple, if only to see what the top contenders are using for a base pistol and then, if they have any gizmo's bolted onto their rig. That will give you a more finite idea from what those folks learned.

    Cleaning for open gun comp - carbon build up

    I got the formula from an old "reenactor" who shoots nothing but black powder firearms, and lives in a tee-pee when he goes to those rendezvous, cooks in a cast iron pot, and does what he needs to do like bears do, in the woods. ;)

    Cleaning for open gun comp - carbon build up

    It's 50% hydrogen peroxide and 50% white vinegar. And no, it has not removed the bluing after a 15 minute soaking from my compensator, for those who might ask. I've used this formula on a Smith & Wesson Model 27 .357 Magnum revolver barrel, so if anyone knows how "pretty" the bluing is on one of...

    Cleaning for open gun comp - carbon build up

    I guess the compensator on my Ruger Mark II didn't get that memo about expelling all the nasty .22 rimfire debris involving lead dust and carbon, out of itself. Some, usually most, .22 rimfire ammunition, and I shoot tons of it, is quite dirty and it certainly does buildup to some extent in the...

    New Ruger Mark IV Style

    Was perusing the Ruger.com web-site I got a bit excited over a distributor version of the Ruger Mark IV. This newer version is like the Ruger Mark III I looked for, back in the day, for almost 2 years before I finally found one: The funny thing is, Ruger didn't make many of the Mark III...

    Dang It! Ruger

    Don't know if my note to the CEO actually worked, but just the other day I've seen 22/45 & Ruger Mark III 22/45 sear springs start showing up at some of the distributors that I was receiving those from. OK, I'm happy now. ;)

    New Build

    That is a very SERIOUS lookin' rifle, good job! Would like to read as to which caliber you decided upon and how it performs. Always cool to read about projects like yours and then seeing what it will do.

    Let's See Your .22 Rimfire Rifles

    Bet those CCI Quiets would be great in that long barrel Marlin.

    Let's See Your .22 Rimfire Rifles

    Nice! Love that Marlin. Hope Remington brings those back out again, now that they've bought that company.
