It's a 10 shot.

I was going to bob the hammer since I usually shoot it DA. The trigger is so good on it I just never see an advantage to cocking the hammer and shooting SA. If it was only made for a couple of years, though, I guess I'll leave it un-molested in case there's ever some future value to be had.

It's a cool gun and I agree, would not bob the hammer. The only benefit to a bobbed hammer is if you are going to CCW the gun, to prevent snagging on clothing on a draw. The 17-8 is definitely not a CCW kind of gun! In addition, you have a great trigger/action on that gun already, and bobbing the hammer changes the weight of the part, and could thus adversely affect functioning in some way which you definitely do not want. Re collectibility or resale, nice Smiths are in demand and it is definitely better to keep it as OEM as possible and you should by all means hang onto the original box, papers and tool kit if you have them.

Any opinions on the Remington 582?



You don't see these around, hardly anywhere. Found one in pretty good shape for about $175.

figure a minimum of 1500 rds a year for 30 years (slowed down with it ... too many other toys and work and family) = 1 $hitload of .22LRs out the barrel

I have one and it has a problem with light strikes....come to find out that they had a problem with this and it is a bear to fix. Like the rifle quite a bit....wish it did not have that issue.

I fixed a light strike issue on my Ruger 10/22 by taking a tiny bit out of the rear of the bolt so the hammer could strike the firing pin with a bit more force. Cleaned it right up.

Know anyone with a mill? Just a few thousandths did the trick for me.

I've got a K22, before they had model numbers, I believe this became the model 17

This ones from 1955-56 or abouts

Same happened to mine. I gave it to my brother. He doesn't know what he did with it. I was going to try to fix it but he lost it.

Just looked at that on thier website! Cool stuff!

It looks like the slab-side models are gone from the list.

The Lite looks like it would be a great little gun.

Question 10/22?

What causes stove pipes in 10/22s. I have a Clark extractor and a Volquartzen hammer and sear and a shok buff. Seem to get quite a few with quality ammo, like Wichester Power Points $40. a brick here. Thanks for chiming in!
