SS Squirrel rifles

Well lets see if the pic works...


Ok that worked.
Both are all Ruger except the barrels scope and mount.

DSP build predates Talo by about 2 years.
Talo stock came from a vendor here as a second , cracked and action would not fit. 100$ was a deal very happy.
Both actions are from the 70s/80s , pawn shop finds. DSP build was a boatpaddle, other was a walnut carbine. Still holding both stocks
Scopes are 2x7 one a weaver rimfire the other a Redfield 33mm. Really want to reset paralax on Redfield when I get "roundtuit"
triggers honed to 2.75 to 3 lbs, and crisp
Both barrels are GM one a ss 17 in heavy taper and the other a 28 inch.
Both bedded with a pillar and pressure pad then free the rest of the way. Trigger guard is bedded in rear as hold down.
Bolts have headspace set to .042 and fireing pin prorusion set to spec.(been so long can't remember think it was .036)
Stock pitch changed to my preference on the TALO with a rubber pad, DSP has been recontured on forend to remove "corners" for better carry in the hand. SP is Truoil, Talo factory for now.
Both balance at the front edge of the mag well, my preference, and I make adjustments to get it there. Main reason I don't use the Ruger barrels setback.
Standard Ruger mag release, the extendeds don't work well in the woods. Cause lost mags and I think Ruger got it right anyway.
Same with bolt release , works fine a Bill designed it , for me anyway.
Both have lighter Kidd mainsprings as I always hunt with SubSonics.
Both have a delrin bolt stop, just a little quiter, and dirt cheap
DSP has push button sling swivels so that there is no "nubbin" when the sling is in my pocket in the woods. Left Talo alone as it really made no difference.
I like the clear mags, and they have had the preload backed off.

How long is the barrel on the right? Looks way long compared to today's standards and even to my 25" Winchester 72A. I bet that is a quiet gun to shoot. Subsonics in that long of a barrel should make it an awesome, quiet gun.

HI, its 28 inches. And yes it's very quite with subs. I may shorten it to 24 in the long run ,but want to play with it this way for a while. In shooting it side by side a 25inch Winchester they sound very close. The balance is very nice like this ,light but steady due to moment of inertia of that long "beam". I had a 20 inch heavy taper on it and was too short ,visually. This is a bit long "visually".
