You're welcome.
Though mine shoots the Remingtons ok, it is not 100% with the 710 fps CCI CB shorts (8-9 out of 10). Another one that is quiet and functions well is the 830 fps CCI 'Target' shorts,...

Hornady has a light-ish (125 grain) 'American Gunner' load that is pretty quick...a little less of a 'lob' than the standard 158 and 180 grain rounds. It's a hollow point as well, so results on soft...

Mine was glued in from factory. I use the word 'glued' because, well...there ain't much there. It's ok, though. If I push the barrel (down by the receiver) to the right as I tighten up the screws, it...

I have no problem with 'fugly'...I think it's an apt description.
For some fun and quiet plinking, try the Blazer Brass .38 Spl load. Even with the extra barrel length (compared to a handgun), they...

I recently picked one of these up as well. The thumbhole stocks are an oil 'finish'. When I have a chance, I will likely rub in a coat or two of linseed oil, then a fine wax (like Toomany suggested)...

Congrats! They are great little rifles. I have a late one, as well. Mine is stamped '71' and has a serial # in the 33700 range. Butter smooth is not exaggerating.

A Timber Wolf in .44 Mag, to go with my .357s.

On a more realistic note, would love a BRNO 611 (no 'A') to go with my 617.

Me too (re: the oil finish) . Nice work ViperR, and yeah, thanks for the heat tip...kind of falls in the 'Duh, why didn't I think of that' category. Mine was a lot of work.
