I was in an evil mood back when I wrote that....you have no idea how bad I wanted to call it a clip just to see what happened.

I have three new guns I have yet to shoot...been on midways waiting list for what seems ever, I told myself that I would not get into my stash...but now it seems like I might....just got 32acp yesterday, so perhaps stuff is starting to flow again....I hope.

What's really really hard to find is 17hm2. It wasn't easy before the "shortage". Impossible, now, so I'm not shooting this one right now. Waiting for tree rat season to open. I can probably shoot it all summer at the rats on one box of cartridges.

Still waiting on the Kimber.

My first 10/22 build. I started with an inherited rifle and ended up with what you see. E.R Shaw Barrel, Boyds Stock, Tac Sol muzzle brake and mag release, and Nikon EFR Scope. I did have a chance to zero it, but the great ammo(e) drought has sadly kept it at home far too often.

I'm pissed! I'm building my stainless 10/22 a bit at a time, as money comes available. So far I've installed a Volquartsen trigger assembly, extended bolt handle, extended mag release, and a stainless picatinny rail for the scope. a saw another inmates build using a Revolution Extreme stock that looked positively gorgeous, so Monday I placed an order with Mike's Stocks on Ebay for a walnut Extreme with sling studs. Well, the stock came in today, and it is beautiful, except. . .
on the left foregrip there is a 1" x 8" place where two pieces of walnut were laminated together to form the bump for the foregrip, and this is really poorly laminated. Whoever put those pieces of wood together needs glasses, or a seeing eye dog! There is no attempt to match the grain of the wood, the two pieces are different shades of brown, it's sad.
I put a complaint in through Ebay, and I'll see what happens. Hopefully they can and will do an exchange.
Really disappointed.


Sorry about the lack of twatwaffle and cockholster in this rant, I just can't get up the enthusiasm right now.

Took the 22/45 Lite to the range yesterday and I'm very pleased. It will be a project, and I will be upgrading things like the trigger, but for now, it's great. Its about as close to a tack driver as you will get from a psitol. It weighs nothing, so you dont get tired, and of course there is minimal recoil. Just a fantastic all around gun. I was feeding it the crappiest ammo I have, and it didnt hesitate one bit. Probably shot somewhere around 400 rounds. There were a couple failures due to poor magazine loading, or light powder in the round. You could feel the round was light, and sometimes it wouldnt cycle the gun right. Other than that, it's absolutely perfect.

I'm sure Mike will take care of you. My Walnut stock from Mike was amazing. I promptly scratched it like an idiot.

I finally got around to putting a couple hundred rounds through mine and it is amazing. I was shooting clay pigeons on their sides at 100yds within minutes.

Anybody have a Henry survival rifle? I'm thinking of getting one to throw in the tail bag on the dual sport for making a dinner of a squirrel or rabbit.

I got one, cheap, stores nice in its own stock. It does shoot really good, and never any miss fires or fail to feed. But be warned it is cheap and looks and feels cheap. I keep mine in my side by side on the farm, and sometimes camping on the bike.

I had one for a while as my "boat gun" in the swamps. Mine had a horrible trigger and accuracy suffered as a result. I never expected it to be a target rifle, but it was difficult to keep 5 shots on a 4" shoot-n-see target at 50yds with that thing. Killed a few snakes with shot shells, though.

I have several other Henry's and love them. But the survival rifle didn't impress me at all. My old Springfield M6 is a much better gun in every respect, but harder to find nowadays.

Thanks - I'm not a fan of cheap stuff so I'll probably pass. I've heard good things about the Ruger 10/22 takedown, but they seem to be unobtanium right now. I may buy a folding stock for one of my regular 10/22's.

Almost daily they pop up on slickguns.com. This was just this morning, http://www.kygunco.com/ruger-1022-ta...lr-rifle-59249. The shop I bought my 22/45lite from has one of them. It really is a neat gun. I'm a huge fan of the 10/22.

Went to Dicks Sporting Goods this morning and they had a 10/22 takedown on the rack but it was on hold for another customer. The salesman called the customer to see if he really wanted it and the guy said no, so it came home with me.

Now to do something about the shitty rear blade sight Ruger uses. I don't think I want a scope on this gun (kinda defeats the purpose of a bike packable gun). I'm a big fan of peep sights so maybe this one. There are a lot of receiver mounted peeps out there, but I want the sight to stay with the barrel for accuracy - not sure yet how well the angle of the receiver to the barrel will repeat during assembly/disassembly.

Nice score on the TD. Love mine.

Thanks for posting that sight. ON the list now to get. I have a scope on mine now and it fits in the back pack very easy, but a sight would be better.

Have fun with that TD and post some pics

What scope do you have? The only extra rimfire scope I have is way too big (a Mueller APV with a 44mm objective). If I decide to use a scope I'd like something smaller.

I went to the range this afternoon. I had to drift the rear sight to the left quite a bit - out of the box it was shooting about 3" right at 25 yards. It actually shot respectable groups with the stock sights. I then mounted a scope and zeroed it at 50 yards. After that I broke the gun down and reassembled it several times, shooting groups each time to see if it'd hold zero. It didn't. It wasn't until after I got home that I read the instructions that told how to adjust the knurled knob to get the right pressure on the barrel during assembly. Hopefully that was my problem. I'm going to head back to the range tomorrow and try again.
