I'm sure the adapter is the best option, but I was able to use a couple of leather pads under the bipod on a 1712, and it worked fine.

Neither the CB nor Quiet ammo has ever come close to squirrel head accuracy at 50 yards for me. If anyone is getting sub 1" groups at 50 (honest) yards, I'd like to hear about it, kind of rifle, etc....

I've never found any of these ultra-quiet loads that shot worth a darn. I'd never hunt with one. If I need that kind of quiet, I have air rifles that are virtually silent, and much more accurate. I...

I guess it's a matter of perspective. I shoot squirrels with 11-12 pound air rifles, so the 1712 is pleasantly light. I went through the light-gun process years ago when I was quail hunting and...

Tom, I'm not sure I'm following your point. Certainly one cannot assign precise probability percentages to one rifle being relatively more accurate than another. Well, actually it could be done, but...

I believe the OP's question was regarding the inherent accuracy of the action, regardless of the specific discipline to which it might be applied. To build on your example of the F1 engine. At 15,000...

If you review the results of top bench rest competitions, you will find no Fortner action rifles. They are designed for fast action, with acceptable accuracy, but not top shelf precision accuracy. On...

To me, it does look like a heavy barrel. I don't believe they made a plain barrel 1710 that was not heavy. The Anschutz site includes barrel specs, so it should be easy to verify.

I do not...

That sounds like the feel of the electronic trigger in my Red Wolf air rifle. It can be as light as you want, but there is no distinct feel of a sear breaking, since there is not one. Many folks love...

I've never heard the term "wall" referred to in a single stage trigger. It generally refers to the first stage stop in a two stage trigger. So, I don't know what the heck we are talking about here.

If you feel slop in the Kidd trigger, I believe something isn't exactly right. I had to adjust the sear engagement just a bit in mine. A hammer activated ignition is going to be slower in lock time,...

I am fortunate enough to have both a two-stage Kidd trigger and a 5018 Anschutz. Currently, I have the 5018 set up as a light-pull single stage, since I don't much like a two-stage for BR use, just...

How many squirrels do you shoot offhand? I'm so lousy offhand, unless it is unusually close, I'll pass up the shot if I can't get to a tree to use for support. I bring this up only because in...

One beauty of the Kidd trigger is its ease of adjustment. If you want a 3/3 oz trigger adjustment, there is certainly no reason not to try it. As a dedicated bench rifle, an experienced shooter may...

No, won't work, the 5018 fits only the larger match action. I don't know what triggers came on that rifle. It could be one of models for the 1700 series of 54 action sporter rifles, but I believe the...

Good point. I think the general rule is, the trigger should be in its rear-most position, which should provide maximum spring compression when cocked. Maybe some are different, but that has been my...
