The Great 74

Fantastic gun. I have a 1940 version in .22 short which I've clipped a couple coils off the recoil spring and that is a dedicated backyard gun. The spring lightening allows me to cycle CCI CB...

I bought a Browning SA Short years ago. I tried CCI minicaps and stock, it cycled for around 10 shots then bound up. Nice 1" groups at 50' and totally silent though.

Not top but close

Older SW 41's.
I will say it takes a special person to extract maximum accuracy out of any gun. I own a 41 and I honestly can't get any higher scores with it than my friends Pardini or my old MKII
