I 3rd the Daisy 499. Most accurate BB gun made at 5 yds. A box with a blanket in the back and a target on front is all you need. Great for training and you can always get the 22 for the days you take...

I could not believe it but I just got 10 boxes of Blazer and 10 of Std Vel at CCI web site. Just enough to get the free shipping. They never have anything left by the time I get to the site at night....

I would suggest a fixed power scope just because you are more likely to get a clearer, brighter image in a fixed power vs the same mag on a variable. Fewer lenses and fewer moving parts also help...

This is good news. I suspect that all this stuff from other manufacturers about not slowing production was fantasy. This confirms what I always suspected which was a shortage of raw materials. Every...

It sounds like it has a rough surface finish and a borderline hammer spring. You could try taking the grips off and looking at the spring and guide rod. Put a drop of heavy oil at the top of the rod...

It appears to be shooting exceptionally well for a basic box stock 10/22, Heck even for a modified 10/22. Be prepared for all your rankings to change order when you move out to 100 yds. I found that...

I just had a first happen today. 3 FTF from 1 box of Eley Slow pistol Match. It is fresh ammo that I just bought last week. I fired it side by side with old Fed Auto Match from my S&W 17. The only...

I would definitely send an email to Smith about that gun. Its a real beauty and they will be able to give you all the details of exactly how it left the factory. It may have been a one off...

You all have had much better luck with your centerfire than I have or many of the guys at my range.

Looking at your groups at 100 yds you can see that they are probably ammo related. Your Horz spread is pretty tight but the vertical stringing is your problem. You might want to put that ammo over a...

I agree with the above posts, I would buy mine again. It is a different kind of gun though. It does not compete with my Cooper or my 40XB for shooting tiny groups at 50 yds but I bought it to ring...

I was going to suggest slugging the barrel but if you missed a paper plate at 15 yds its not the barrel, the action has got to be loose in the stock. If you look at the receiver channel you should...

This will never work on so many levels. 1} spire point bullets need to go faster than the speed of sound all the way to the target. When they get close they tend to tumble.
2} BC is fine but Section...
