If you ever decide to let that single six go, give me a holler.
I also wished the cycling was a little smoother and the trigger a little lighter, but I have less than 50 rnds thru it. I figure it will smoothen out with more use. I bought mine after I tried my friend's at the ranch, I took out 2 jackrabbits with headshots at 70+ yds, they fell rite there. That was my first experience shooting the .17HMR also, very eye opening.
Will do John but - tho I shoot it rarely it is a nice piece, very traditional, fun with the .22 mag cylinder too - only downside (lazy-butt talkin) - as with any SA and loading gate - slow to load and unload.Quote:

utarch00 .....The 22/45 is fitted with the Bushnell Trophy red dot - it has four reticles, small dot, large dot, cross and dot in circle. It has a 30mm tube and this is good for the So-Low mounts which I like.Quote:
The Muzzle brake deal is a Volquartsen add-on .... does add a smidgeon of weight but not a lot.
The other main change I made was fitting a Volquartsen extractor - it is sharper cut and makes for better reliability - this gun likes Fed Champion ammo best.
I got no pics of my gear, but I can at least brag...
NEF .17HM2 w/ bull barrel and 4x18x50 airgun scope.
Ruger 10/22 with a rebuilt 2.5 lb trigger, moly coated inside the receiver. a green mountain fluted bull barrel with quik disconnects for the BSA red dot scope and airgun scope.
stubby bull barrelled Ruger 45/22 that is too accurate for me to shoot.
I don't have a very good picture of this gun (need to rectify that) but this is the pre runner of many of the "survival guns". The Stevens 22-410. Forefather of the Savage Model 24 and the M6 scout. And is 22 LR over .410 shot gun with early Tenite stock. Circa 1940 or so. The first of these mixed breeds.
Marlin 880 SQ with a cheap Simmons scope. Cheap and fun to shoot.
I bought this for my ex wife and do you believe she tried to keep it. :rofl:
The Mosquito feels and handles great, but I haven't got it to run good yet. I've only tried Remington Golden Bullets so far and I get feed problems. It's only seen one trip to the range, but I plan on getting it out again soon to try various brands of ammo to see what it does like. :smile:
Winchester Model 74
Stevens Model .22/.410
Hi-Standard H-D Military
Here's my present to myself.
Henry Golden boy 22. LR with the big loop. Now that's a plinker boys and girls. I'm going to get it this weekend.
Those Henry Golden boys are sure smooth on the lever....
Ruger 10/22 in a ATI dragonov type stock, Browning Buckmark, Ruger single six new model convertible.
Lets see ....
A long time favorite - Old manufacture High Standard Supermatic Trophy model on a military frame (.22 LR):
A gift from the wife a while back - AMT AutoMag II (.22 Magnum):
In the long guns, A SS Marlin 882 (.22 Magnum), my grandfathers old Remington Sportmaster, A Marlin Glennfield model 60, A Marlin 394 lever action, and my dad's old Winchester 62A gallery pump.
finally a Remington Mohawk 10C that hasn't seen any use since the sear broke and a Marlin 917v .17 HMR (not really a .22 I know, but pretty much a .22 magnum case... )
Apparently, I've been misinformed ..... you all think plinking means quality and/or accuracy. To me it just means easy fun.
To me, the Walther P22 is just stylish, plain old fun.
