Started as a stock blued 10/22 and then I found Rimfirecentral.com and lost my mind. The stock I laminated and carved myself. Stripped and polished the receiver,new hammer for a better trigger,SS bull barrel,bolt work, and Mueller scope. Way too much time and $$ in it but it was well worth it.

Beautiful rifle. Nicely done.

I've got one of these, they're fun to shoot & easy to reload.

I'll never own one again. Not because they made a bad gun, but instead because they provided bad service. Nowadays I'd rather spend more and cry once. My bottom is Ruger (not so elegant but quality is good), then Kimber, and maybe one day something from Wilson Combat.

Currently I am waiting for a new fluted barrel version of the Ruger 22/45 lite to show up at my local dealer. It should be a fine .22, though it doesn't sound like it will meet fastdadio's criteria.
Unfortunately, this seems to be the majority opinion that I'm finding. It's looking like the ole Dan Wesson is destined for a hard life.

I just picked up an earlier version of that (circa 1936 called the .22 Special back then) for teaching some friends how to shoot. Love the break tops and it's a great gun for teaching as well as plinking.

I have a mid 60's version of that . I find it more accurate than my Ruger Mark-II with a bull barrel.

I lost the rear sight last time I was out plinking. Any idea where I can get a replacement?

I had the same thing happen, it was a long time ago & I can't remember where I found one. I think I did a Google search to find it, they're out there though.

You should check out the Ruger SP-101 in 22LR or a S & W 17 or 617 (or maybe a used Model 18, if you can find one). A bit more $$$ than a Taurus, but either will last forever. The Dan Wesson 22 should be hard to wear out too, bit it is a better looking gun, and I can see where you might want to keep it nice.

Great suggestions both of them. Only problem is that they're both worth more than the DW. So my net gain is nada on that one.

Actually glancing at prices on gunbroker, the DW22 and the SP101 are about equal, if you can get the SP101 at retail, and the DW is clean.

Can't guarantee it but this would be a good place to start. http://www.gunpartscorp.com/

HI Standard Military

I took my son out today to shoot his new to him Marlin-Glenfield bolt action 22. I drug this out of the safe as well. My grandfather gave this to me 17 years ago and it probably had not be fired in at least 30 years. I dont know why its taken so long, It got stuck in the the back of the safe and was forgotten.



It shoots pretty good. I know these were used for military training in WWII but I dont think this one is quite that old.

M48 at the range

I got out to the range today with the M48. The weather was beautiful and the range was very,very busy.



I ran about 100 rounds using 4 different brands and types of .22lr and the M48 shot them all great.

I had set out two targets to check out the M48, one at 50 yards, You can see that target in top right of the picture and another at 100. That target is sitting on the bench. The 50 yard target I did 5 round groups with. I shot at the 100 yard target was when I was waiting for a cease fire to change my 50 yard target.

I do not use a bench rest for shooting, I shot standing freehand at a targets placed at 50 and 100 yards. I am not worried about tight groups as much as I look for consistency. This little gun is a tack driver

I gave the gun to my friends son to shoot at a spinner target set at 75 yards, He nailed it every shot.

I also bought a box of subsonic rounds for the gun, That made me laugh, I pulled the trigger and did not hear anything. Pulled the bolt back and seen that it had discharged . The bolt makes more noise than the round

All in all I had to much fun today

And if you thing normal 22 takes a while to go 100yards you should try a sub sonic.....first time I shot I thought I missed all together....but then ting.....oh I did hit it.

Man I love that mauser....I just need new eyes.

Thanks for the tip about the sub sonic rounds, I now know that I can run them in the back yard with out pissing the neighbors off

And I need new eyes also
