Dang you called my bluff.

I have two 17HMRs (93R17 and 1517D) I swore I'd get rid of before I consider buying another.

After seeing a couple of them in person, I'm inclined to agree.

For me personally, an Anschutz 1727 or 1827 of some kind. They're snappy but for a non-competition rifle (unless I learn to ski...

Between me and another forum member, we have at least 6 Sako Quad barrels and two Quad rifles. 22LR and 17HMR. I think four+ of them are Liljas and we've done some informal testing of all of them....

Wow, the Alpha Carette is down to $1300 from experthpa.com

I have a good dive shop 25 minutes from me who will do 4500psi, but may be compressor shopping next year.

Nice Daystate. Especially nice.

I bought my Huntsman XL from Precision also and they are good people.

Enjoy that airgun. In spite of the price they donít come much nicer.

222 is quite accurate but limited in range to, say, 400y on critters or 200y on targets. I like to shoot on the bench so I'm inclined to use a fine-reticle 6-24x scope. EuroOptic is closing out...

Even on a gentle round like a 222, the 1771 action unnerves me because the lugs are machined into the barrel and nobody can rebarrel it. I asked Anschutz and they'll only sell a full new barreled...

Wow, so the gun had a bolt that wouldn't open, but it somehow made it to the sales floor? That would make me pretty angry too.

I'm running a 6BRA with good initial results. It pushes 105gr at 2950fps with less than 31 grains of powder. That's good for your wallet, shoulder, and barrels.
