I'd you want the closed style, Bushnell TRS25 gets decent press, PA micro if you want something that will take a little more abuse.

One of these.....

....with a pinned 3 prong FH, so it makes the 26" OAL.
Cool...

Is swapping barrels on a 10/22 much of a chore? Is it a gunsmith job?

I've also just realized what a pain in the ass it will be to properly clean this thing. Have to take it out of the stock to do a proper job...

Nah. You just need the appropriate size Allen wrench to remove the two bolts holding the barrel wedge, then just pull the barrel out of the receiver.....and don't torque the bolts back on too hard, or you can crack the wedge. :crazy:

Question for the Sig 1911 owners on ZS.

I bought a Sig 1911 mag today and I'm curious if these mags are designed solely for Sig built 1911s or if they're designed to fit in any standard 1911. Sorry for the potentially dumb question, by the way. I've never actually bought a magazine for my 1911 until today.

It should theoretically fit any 1911, but like some aftermarket 1911 magazines it may or may not function 100%

Thanks, Ausher.

I'll go to the range sometime this week or coming weekend and see if it functions 100%.

If it doesn't work in my gun, I'll try and trade it for another 1911 mag.

1911's can be picky about magazines. My TRP liked the metalform mags and chip McCormick magazines.

It's a pretty simple affair. Just mount the new barrel and smoke test it.....erm....sight it in. When you bolt the barrel wedge back on, it's shape & the way it fits, should line the extractor up with the extractor groove on the right side of the barrel.

ETA: whenever you have the stock removed, lock the bolt back.....and that should put enough tension on those two pesky trigger group pins to keep them from falling out of the receiver.

Has anyone here ever built a bolt action?
I'm thinking about doing a 700, looks like it's doable, just curious if anyone here has done it before.
Anyone have experience with 700 clone receivers? Remington doesn't make ti receivers anymore, and I'm a bit of a titanium whore. I've seen a few 700 knock off receivers in ti, or receivers with a 700 footprint ... Still in the consideration phase, might jump on something in the next month.

Can anyone tell me what kind of bolt action .22LR rifle this is ?

I'm trading another .22 rifle for it and I'm needing info on it before I order parts for it (all it needs is a magazine tube assembly).

The guy I'm doing the trade with says it's a Marlin, but that's all he knows about it. It looks like a Marlin Model 81, but I'm not entirely sure.

Image

ETA: That's not my photo, by the way. It's one the guy I'm trading with sent me.

ETA 2: Ok, so I got a phone call from the guy I'll be doing business with and he tells me that it's not a Marlin, but some model of Savage brand .22 rifle. Still kind of in the dark here, but I guess it helps a little.

Well, I got the rifle and it's a Savage made Revelation 115 (basically a store branded Model 46) not a Marlin as the guy originally thought. Still, it's a decent little gun. It just needs a couple parts to make it whole.

Now I need to hit Brownell's or Numrich to get a magazine tube assembly and a rear sight adjustment thing. Hopefully it shouldn't cost me more than 50 bucks to get it running again.

ETA: Well, I was wrong. Upon breaking down the rifle to check for damage and to clean it, I found a major problem. The trigger housing assembly has a big crack in it where someone used a pair of pliers to force the safety switch pin in. Now I get to buy a new trigger housing assembly and a new safety in addition to the magazine tube and rear sight.

It's probably going to cost me more than the rifle is worth to fix it, but it'll be worth it to have a safe rifle.

Been waiting on Spinta but I just couldn't wait any longer. PSA had a 300BO upper for $250, 8.5" bbl with quad rail. Then stumbled upon this silent buffer spring thingy-majig I think that'll be going in the build.

Anyone have any thoughts on TiN BCG? They are damned expensive for what comes down to a coating. But requiring less lube is always a good thing :awesome:

I am almost afraid to post this as I might just be jinxing myself.

Ya know how they say bad news happens in 3's, like Hollywood actors dying off or rock musicians also croak in 3's.

Years ago there was a clique of IDPA competitors who shot this one Saturday match all the time at this one club. I think somebody noticed how much better they placed at their home club. If they traveled to other clubs their results put them lower in the standings. It was rumored that they were setting up their match at their home club on Friday afternoon/evening and then shot it. Then when they showed up on Saturday morning they acted like they hadn't seen any of the stages before.

One of the guys went into the gun manufacturing business, and by all appearances was successful at it. Just very recently, they announced they were going out of business. There are people out there who bought thousands of dollars of products last year and they never delivered.

Anyway...I am sitting here with a little smirk, kinda glad to see karma finally catch up to some people.

And then there is the news of USPSA's executive director, Kim, no longer being employed by USPSA. About 2 years ago, it was revealed she embezzled like $140,000 from the organization. I think she was also using USPSA's company money to buy herself NFL tickets.

So, double my smirk.

It leaves me wondering what the third thing will be.

The next time I decide to trade a gun, will someone here please smack me ?

Case in point, the Revelation 115 I traded for yesterday turned out to be more hassle than it was going to be worth, so I sold it off as a parts gun to a local dealer for 30 bucks. Yeah, I took a loss and traded away a better rifle, but I washed my hands of this one.

I've decided that if I want an older gun, I'm buying it from a dealer (preferably one with a gunsmith on site).

I think the biggest question for me is why was the guy's friends truck on the firing line to begin with ?

Also, if it wasn't on the firing line, then what was Instructor Man doing with a hot weapon outside of the designated area ?

There's a lot of questions that are unanswered in regards to that review. I'm not defending Yeager by any means, but it seems to me that there's a lot of story not being told here.

Either way, I'm probably never going to take a class from Yeager anyway, but that's mostly because there's plenty of local guys out here that can teach me pretty much the same stuff Yeager does. And for a lot less money probably.

There was a video out at some point where a guy beat up a PA micro pretty bad and it continued to work and hold zero. Just from my bad memory, he froze it, threw it at distance while attached to the rifle, shot it with bird shot at close range. He abused it as much as he could.
It stops being funny when it starts being you.

I put one on my daughter's rifle and it seems to hold zero pretty well... No real stress test though, just range time.
