Probably sweat & what to do.

Yes, it is probably sweat. Some people make a kind which does this more than other people's. I have even lightly oiled my hands before handling guns. At gun auctions, the people handling the guns...

Grooved receiver ?

Dah, why didn't I think of a grooved receiver. I remember I had an old Remington bolt action .22 that was made before they started grooving the receiver. A gunsmith cut two grooves so I could mount...

An alternate idea ...

I have had a scope mounted on a Browning SA-22 and did not like the looks of it, so off came the scope and mount. I like the looks of it better now. And I put a scope on a Ruger 10/22 so I have a...

Pick pockets love a crowd.

In one of my criminal justice or similar law classes the professor told us that in England during public punishments a large crowd would gather and it was a field day for pick pockets. Makes sense,...

Might try GunBroker.com

Try GunBroker.com and go to the section on scopes. Another thought, you might find a rifle with the scope mount you want already on it. Buy it, take the mount and sell the rifle.

A.O. & Side Focus

A.O. is shorthand for adjustable objective lens and can be achieved via a ring on the front of the scope or by a side mounted adjustment dial. Because the long time way was always from the front,...

Parallax is no big deal rimfire hunting. In my opinion.

Motovita, Post # 4 is correct. Assuming we are talking about hunting with a .22 rimfire with an average rimfire scope, it makes almost no difference considering the natural amount of wobble when...

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...

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.

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.
