I bought new a Ruger 12 ga O/U stainless/synthetic gun some years back. The stainless then was bright shiny. I had Dan Culity send it out and get it black Teflon coated. It is as weather proof as...

1:8 twist barrel liner in a Remington 521T

I have a good supply of the 60 gr. .22 Long Rifle ammunition. I quickly discovered it would not stay stable, pointy end first, in my rifles. One would do almost ok, but only at short range. So I had...

To scope or not ?

I find I agree with GladesGuy that a Ruger 10/22 is a better rifle to scope. I have had a number of SA-22 rifles and at one time had a scope on one. I did not care for the use of nor the looks of...

Are you using a scope ?

Are you using a scope ? If so, I would start with switching scopes and see if that fixes the problem. If you are using iron sights, I don't have a clue as to what is going on, assuming what you are...

Velocity differences and results on target.

I do not know. I am just thinking. And posting for discussion.

Hi Mike, I have a suggestion for you. That stock looks fine and I think you should leave it as is. But if you have an itch that needs to be scratched, buy a second beat up stock for short money and...
