Box of Crackerjacks ... a surprise in every box

A box or 50 .22 rimfire cartridges is often like a box of Crackerjacks, a surprise in every box. I would say that about CenterX years ago. But the better match ammo is more consistent and without...

USCGret, looks like a Winchester Model 24

That looks like a Winchester Model 24. I have one, made when I was, 1942.

Problem with short chambers...

If your gun has chambers shorter than the standard 2 & 3/4 inches, even mild loads can raise pressures too high due to the lack of expansion space. I learned the hard way with two guns. Have a...

Love to see a picture or two of the gun.

I had an old Lefever side by side 12 ga gun and hunted everything with it for years. A terrific gun. I am partial to these old doubles with two triggers. You can make an instant decision as to...

Bullets made to do a job.

Bullets are made to do a job. Ballistic superiority maybe worth having if you have a need for it. The old Remington round nose bullets have always worked well in killing animals with some trade off...

Ok, you said what you want. Others have made what suggestions they could come up with. I think four scopes have been suggested. So I am not sure why you posted this:

12.2 ounces help you ?

VX-FREEDOM 3-9X40 RIMFIRE MOA is 12.2 ounces.

For some years I shot in 100 yard egg shoot matches where they had a 9x limit. This scope might help you out. Almost all scopes these days seem to...

Rifles and guns in general should be made of steel.

I believe rifles, shotguns and handguns should all be made of steel, not some substitute material. I will not knowingly buy those substitutes. Stick with 50+ year old guns and you should not have...

Bullets "bumping up"

Soft lead bullets can "bump up" after leaving the cylinder and entering the barrel of revolvers. Important for accuracy as some revolvers have cylinders and barrels of differing diameters. I have...

Same thing with iron sights ...

And on rare occasions, we would get the same thing with iron sights shooting the 50 yard iron sight bench matches. Too bad the threads here on RFC got deleted, but I am sure we both have saved some...

Make sense to me.

I had never thought of it. Makes perfect sense to me. Probably can just get a new cap with standard markings for it.

My guess ...

My guess is that the wood has compressed. Try shimming the action and you might pick up enough clearance to make it work as it should.

A plug for a 28

I will add a recommendation for a 28 ga. shotgun. I have never owned one. But I have seen others shoot them and they seem to do every bit as well as the 20 ga. guns, and with less recoil, assuming...

Henry rimfire rifles.

The Henry rimfire rifle is not steel and that bothers me because I am old and rather set in my ways. But the rifle is made in America and the owner is committed to turning out a good product and...

Bolt action clean from the chamber end ...

I agree with the general assessment that the bolt action rifle will be more accurate. It is also easier to clean well on a regular basis, something worth considering. And it you shoot a match off...

.22 w/1:8 twist barrel & 60 gr. bullets.

In reading this thread again I thought about a rifle I have that might be a good .22 rimfire rifle to have if it was to be the only one. I have a Remington 521T which is a magazine fed bolt action...

Shark repellent maybe ?

I think I have read it can be used to keep sharks away when you need to be in the water working on a boat. And a squirt into spilled gasoline in the water helps too.

Go to the forums and scroll down to RFC matches, then continue down to the ones for handguns. Read up and see if it is what you want.

I would think at my age I would have heard of "locked down" but I haven't. Outside of a rail gun, I don't see how a rifle could be locked down. So please educate me. Thanks, David
