Just got one last week...

...and have only shot it a couple times, seems fairly accurate and pretty easy to empty the 10 shot magazine, just like my .22LR version. Dimensionally is the same as a 10/22, seems the balance...

e-nickel .22 Diamondback

I recently acquired an electroless nickel 4" .22 Diamondback. I promptly called Colt and requested a factory letter to validate the revolver (no box or other documentation came with the gun). Well,...

Ditto on the VQ Chum! My wife can split a bullet on an axe blade at 50 yards and break two balloons (one on each side) simultaneously. I have it on video but too small to see very well. She can...

Best .22 mag?

With about a dozen .22 mags in the safe, I'd say (from my experience anyway...) that the Savage M93 BVTSS is the most accurate for the least amount of money. My Volquartsen will outshoot it any day...

A-bolt accuracy

Jim: I have three a-bolts, one of them is a .22 WMR, the other two are .22LR. Both of the .22LR's shoot fair and are particular about the ammo; I've had the best luck with CCI MiniMags. The .22WMR...

Performance or Attitude?

Owning Shilen, Lilja and Volquartsen rimfire barrels, I'd rate them thusly:

Performance: Tie between Shilen and Volquartsen for most accurate
Attitude: Tie between Lilja and Volquartsen for the...

Nice stock!

My stock is a bit lighter color than I'd prefer also, what did you do to prepare your stock for staining/finish?

We have 3 t-bolts; all of them shoot remarkably well for the money. I'd recommend t-bolts & maybe the triggers aren't match quality but so what? Just fine for hunting & varmints...accurate guns too.

Ruger BX trigger vs. Power Custom Hammer & Sear kit

I was at Cabelas the other day and picked up a Ruger BX trigger and a Power Custom Hammer & Sear kit to compare the two; both were approximately the same cost. I have two current model 10/22's, one...

Favorite ammo

My wife built a Shilen barrel/Kidd action & trigger and she likes Green Tag & Gold Medal the best...we can't seem to get any Lapua or Wolf so no comment on those.

The only problems I've had with Marlin semi-autos are the older ones that didn't use the wire ejectors. Mine has the ejector built into the feed throat and the edge would wear causing jamming since...

Our two most accurate .17HMRs

are the Sako Quad and Volquartsen Custom. All seem to shoot well and you can hardly go wrong but that Sako and Volquartsen are consistently the best on paper. Good luck!

Ultramag44 is right!

You guys are definitely enablers! Not all that long ago, when I first 'discovered' RFC, I had one 10/22. Now I have 13 10/22's, a Charger, a Kidd, two Volquartsens and an AMT. You all should be...

BX trigger

I think I might have to try a couple of the new Ruger triggers; I have a couple of 'sleeper' builds in mind and this trigger might be just perfect! No, I don't guess that it will compare to the...

I've got a BAR 22 and a BPR 22; both are pretty average accuracy-wise and both are partial to CCI mini-mags. My SA-22 will outshoot the BAR & BPR pretty easily but they're both OK for hunting...

cleaning .17 HMR

We shoot .17 HMR's quite a bit; they usually go about 40-50 rounds before the accuracy starts dropping off, then we run a bore snake through the barrel and shoot some more. When at home on the...
