There are rumors of the Combo-gun return


But, this article was from a year ago. I went looking as I was on Savage's website a month or two ago and they had a Heading: "Return of the ComboGun" or something similar. Now I can't find it, or any mention of the CombGun.

It's there: http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/ look under "Center Fire" "Specialty Series"

Just picked up two Remington 1400 round buckets at $65 each from Academy. Took my dad with me so he bought one and I bought one. I'll be good on .22 for awhile.

Edit: thanks to me and my monkee for the heads up. :

One of the things I seriously dislike about mail order shopping is getting the wrong damn things....

So, I've decided to set up my Marlin with a big scope to use at the range and later this summer on Rocky the squirrel...so I go to Cabela's and find a Nikon scope, not cheap but should be good, 3-9x40, and order a set of rings for it - noting that C. only carries two brands of 1" .22 sized rings.

I of course get the wrong ones....now, this could have been avoided by a simple line drawing showing me how tall the rings are, since it's obvious that with a 40 mm scope, your rings need to be at least a half an inch high...

So, I've got this terrific scope, a sightless .22 and another package on the way, since I drove to three sporting goods stores and could not source anything that might work so that I can shoot this weekend.

Damn, I hate that about mail order.

I looked at one at Gander Mountion this week. I have to say I was not impressed with the fit and finish for the price of $449. I have a 60's era 24 in .22/20 Ga. and its one of my favorites. I have always wanted another in 22 mag/20 or the ultra rare 30.06/12 Ga.

New is not always better, I had the .22/.410 years ago

I had no idea ADV had a rimfire thread! I need to get out more. Bout a month ago, a riding buddy of mine was looking for a 22. His son is 12 and is signed up for Hunter Safety. I told him I may have one for sale. After a modest hee and hawing period, I sold him my Remington 552 Speedmaster. So long old girl,,

So I took the money he gave me, and added some to it, and reinvested in (yawn) a Ruger 10/22 Walnut Mannlicher Stainless. Gander Mountain had it in stock.



I put this Weaver 2.5 on it that was way in the back of the gunsafe.



I am very pleased with this purchase-it is fun to shoot but needs some trigger work done. I have only put about 100 rounds through it with 5 different types of ammo with no jams or malfunctions yet. I dont miss the tubular magazine on the 552 one bit. I bought a Butler Creek Steel Lips 25 round magazine from Cabelas. It is clear so one can see how many rounds are left-kinda cool for this old fart.

Your 10/22 Mannlicher is cool. I have one that was made in 1975 and I love it.

Okay, so far the Butler Creek magazine loader is a disappointment.

That is some fine wood on that Ruger. Years past Ruger put their best wood on the No. 1's. That seems to be not the case anymore.

They seem to still do pretty good every once in a while...this is a recent production 10/22 in the French walnut model...



And this is a recent Boddington 375 Ruger No. 1...

Bought a Bersa Thunder .22 yesterday.

The GF carries a CZ 50 .32 ACP.

Almost exactly alike, both are PPK knockoffs. She likes to shoot and the .22 will be cheaper than the .32 to shoot. That is if I can find some .22 ammo.........
These 2 guns have the same weight and feel so it should be natural for her....
