I had a very nice Chuckster .22 Mag a few years back. It shot well, almost exactly same sized groups as several Marlin bolt guns I have had. I think the ammo is the limiting factor.

Years ago I got a brand-new Colt Trooper in .22 LR. After about 25 rounds, the cylinder wouldn't turn, crud under extractor. Had to brush it with Hoppe's solvent to shoot another 25 rounds. I...

Walnut has pores on the surface of the wood. Beech is closed grain. Your stock is definitely beech. Actually, I think beech is more shock-resistant and less prone to splitting than walnut, so is a...

Even though the breech seal is flat, it may still be working OK. A test is - drape a piece of Kleenex etc. over the breech and shoot it (with a pellet). See if the paper is blown off. If not, it...

I once had a .32 Mag Ruger with that grip style. I have large hands and never could get a good grip on the birdshead style grips. But they do look cool.
