And I can not find a single round
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 heard about a guy yesterday that is buying what he can find, making up packages of 8 rounds and selling them for $3 each. wow.

Sounds a lot like packing 8 balls for street sales.

That was exactly what I thought.

Romanian M-69

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.



The finished product





I am very happy with the result.

Its not a CMP gun. It is a Romanian Trainer. Other than that I do not know that much about them. It is a full sized gun and seems well made.

I am going to shoot it in a few hours, Got some Honey Do Items to finish up before playtime

M-69 First shoot

I put a small steel triple target at 25 and 50 yards. I marked the spots so I can come back and put some markers down.

I had about 30 rounds of different ammo left over, and I do not have the clip yet, but it hand fed very easy, and the thirty rounds were gone in no time.

Had a bunch of fun, I was nailing targets with ease, Had one type of bullet that I never scored with, the subsonic rounds, I never was able to dial it in with those rounds. Put in a regular round and I nail the target no issue.

Very light, long trigger pull to the sear, from there it is crisp trigger.

I like it, these 30 rounds just went away to fast.

Every time I poke my head in this thread it makes me want a new gun. Aside from stumbling across a deal, do you guys have any suggested places to look? gunbroker seems to list mostly retail pricing, and most stores around here have marked up prices due to being so close to Camp Pendleton. I might as well go on base and get something for tax free if I am going to pay MSRP. Just looking for accuracy under $300 to address a squirrel issue that has come up in the neighbors horse barn and for fun after that.

My local dealer has a Marlin XT for like $225 with an adjustable trigger, I have the older model and it's more than adequate at the price. Use a peep or add glass, your choice.

22 Ammo.

Ammo is still plentiful in Canukstan. Just bought some cheap 525 Boxes of Blazer for $29. ea at Crappy Tire. Use this in my Ruger Mark 3 just for blasting away. Use Winchester Power Points for my 1022 gopher getter. Season is almost here. Got a 22mag CZ for the longer shots. Really does make things happen when they're hit.
