Silver Kidd



Log in to see fewer ads
This is my Silver Kidd with one of his super stock brothers. The bigger barrel is a natural progression in building these rifles. When Kidd came out with the lightweight I was in.



I have switched it around a few times in different stocks I was working on.







I like it best in the birch DSP style stock for hunting and carrying around. It's a bit shiny for a squack rifle but it does the job real well.

Kidd lightweight barrel
Kidd Single Stage trigger 1.5#
Que Bolt Jeweled
R/T charging handle and spring
Ruger Receiver stripped and polished.......inside and out very slick and smooth
Mueller APV
Burris Med High Rings
Brass Pillar etc......

I have always liked that pair at the top. So much that Turmite has a walnut carbine I sent to him to modify. I cant' wait to get that baby back. I have no problem refinishing stocks but no woodworking tools to make mods.

Yeah, it's a good enough reason to get back into it. Something about 1022s.......it's real hard to quit them.

Thanks Gerald and Ron

Really great to see your name here Chromie. You are one of the longest time people that put much into all this. I hope you like the new forum. Less rules and more room to do something different. Hope things work out for you to through one together

I like them all Trimguy but the maple tipped Carbine really grabs me. I can certainly see why you would chose the Birch DSP to hunt with though. I have a feeling that thing can shoot little tiny groups.

The Maple tipped carbine looks good with a Silver rifle in it. I put a new black build in it and it didn't look quite right to me.

The birch DSP is a nice hunting stock for me. With the Kidd lightweight in it a pleasure to carry. First shot is always on the money.... Handles good and shoots good in it. All I could ask for....
As far as shooting tiny groups.........it seems to do pretty well. I really haven't had the ammo to do much group shooting with it. I can tell you with CCI SV it does shoot well enough I use it for squirrel ammo. I hope soon we can get good ammo reasonable again. I would love to see what this rifle could do with some good stuff.

Beautiful rifle Trim!!

I sincerely miss building and shooting with the three of you guys.

It feels very strange to find this forum here though. Who shot the 800lb gorilla and broke all the promises?

The times they are a changin'
