Maybe it's because my first handgun was a Walther PP-derived Bulgarian Mak. But the DA trigger pull doesn't seem *that* terrible to me.

I think if you reduce the power of the mainspring by any...

TLDR: It's marketing. HV appeals to more of the general public. It's seen as more likely to run semi-autos.

We just had a few hot days in a row and squirrels were getting run over left and right.


Any .22 round is subsonic if the barrel it's fired from is short enough.

I think somebody's already said it, but on p.16 of the manual it says the purpose of the half-cock notch is "to reduce the chance of untriggered discharge due to accidental hammer fall from the full...

My point was, and what I think zymurgeist was getting at, is that while the manual quite predictably discourages carrying with a chamber hot, when it comes to carrying with hammer at half-cock it...

This. Though the manuals says carrying with a loaded chamber is not recommended, they are clear "DO NOT" carry with the hammer at half-cock.

I guess the question for me would be: is there more of...

You don't have to have a 1:9 twist. People just conclude that because SSS works with 1:9 ARs. As someone else noted, you just need a little faster than 1:16.

CCI CB Longs are my backyard varmint round. Considerably quieter than .22lr subsonic out of my TOZ bolt-action. I mean to try the 40gr Quiets if I find them locally.

IIRC, TOZ barrels have some choke to them near the muzzle. It could be possible that shortening the barrel has an effect on accuracy.

You're welcome. I thought of this forum when I saw the email.

Yeah, that sucks. Can't have those evil, bolt-action a-salt rimfires running around the Golden state now, can we? :rolleyes::AR15firin

They also have left-handed Biathlon rifles.

Russian rimfires in stock at Centerfire

Hi BigDanS! Thanks for posting the review. This might be the solution to the ground squirrel problem that developed in my back yard last summer. If I can ever catch the little suckers above ground.
