Of course, waste not want not.
From the blank backs of advertising flyers to pizza boxes.
Heaven is seeing a neighbor put out cardboard boxes on trash day, preferably from large appliances.

I got into airguns as a way to have trigger time at home, mostly for action games practice.
As the guns got more and more realistic, they have replaced the rimfires I used to use for that.

How about using a hallway if you have one, instead of the garage?
I often do that when it's too hot out there.
Or you could just turn the tv volume up some. :)

Pellet pistol not accurate?
Wait, don't pitch it quite yet.

There is a neat trick to increase the accuracy of pellet pistols,...

Eghad, Pianoman.
It sounds like we have two completely different pistols.
I've only been using mine a few weeks, but so far it's been as accurate as a .22.
Shoots and feels about like one, too....

Uncle Howie,

Yes, there were two versions of the Ramline pistol.
The Exactor had the round grip and the other one, like mine, has the regular grip shape.

Thankee Bigloop,
Here's hoping that "highgrade polycarbonate" ain't high fallutin' talk for cheap plastic.

The Leapers brand of scopes are supposedly all rated for spring powered air rifles, and they are not real expensive.
2nd hand info, though.

Realistic semiauto pellet gun

This is the most realistic pellet gun I've run across.
It's a C02 powered, blow back (with impressive recoil), .177 rifled barrel, pellet gun.
And it works like the real thing.
Far more accurate...

Are there decent magazines for the Ramline Syntek?

Does anyone know of good quality magazines for the Ramline Syntek, (also once sold as the Mountain Eagle)?
It's a good plinker, except for the cheapie, plastic mags that came with it.

Try not to force things.
A strained eyeball changes shape and causes blurry vision.
Just look with both eyes open, as naturally relaxed as possible.
Same process for open sights or scopes.

I have one of the Crosman Quest 1000.
They are made in China, if that's a concern.
The Chinese airguns have come a long way in the last few years. and this one is quite good.

It seems to be unanimous.
Replace the present two piece mount with a full length one, over and past the damaged part of the rib.
Thanks, that should work.

Damaged dovetail, how else to mount a scope?

For many years, my Marlin 60 has had a fairly large zoom scope on it.
Yesterday, I noticed the scope was loose.
No wonder, two large chunks of dovetail came off with the scope and mounts.
Anyone...

Mostly on small (2" - 3") reactive steel spinners, at 10 - 12 yards.
Challenging, even at that distance.

AR 7 Problem

One of those take down, and stow in the stock, .22 survival rifles.
It's always run nearly perfectly.
Good accuracy and rarely a feed or...

Mr. Guerra is correct. The original Armalite version was probably the best AR-7.

The Charter brand I once had was no match for the Armalite, in either accuracy or reliability.
