My daughter picked up the replacement rifle on the 13th. It looks like it is factory fresh. The sights are on straight, the safety works as it should, and it ejects and feeds just fine. The bore...

Hey Signalman...

If you open your bolt (so that it is cocked) and then close the bolt completely locked down, can you engage the safety and fire positions back and forth?

Mine will not.

This rifle will not engage the safety once the gun has been cocked and locked. That seems a little strange to me, not to be able to put the safety on with it cocked and locked with a round in the...

Yes! That helps a lot. Anything around 5 to 5 1/2 lbs would work for her.
Poor girl, she loves the wood stock and heavy barrels, but the injury really screwed up her support hand for shooting...

Wow, that's heavier than expected. I may have to look at the Savage or Rugers. I just hate the unknowns with the magazine feeding issues on both. Nothing worse than buying a new gun and having to...

My hit pattern chart was 20mm. 4 of the five looked like it grouped pretty good, but one looked like a flier. Just randomly left of the others.

Wet 22 mag ammo, will it fire?

Has anybody done any testing on 22 magnum ammo submerged in water for a period of time? Will it still fire?

That extra barrel ain't a bad idea. Would be cheaper than having a gunsmith tap it. Thanks for that. I'll keep that as an option.

I'll invest in a better quality scope. Perhaps I can find some...
