1957 Cugir



Log in to see fewer ads
Since I started shooting in a "mini Palma" match, I've been going through the safe getting my old .22's out. I bought this 1957 Cugir years ago and somehow never shot it. I intend to remedy that.

Good luck , they are solid good rifles . Ive got many , out of the 40-50 ive got they all have a wash out bore , just in front of the chamber , usually at 6:00 .a borescope will help but generally just looking with the light just right you can see it . Dont let that stop you from expecting good accuracy, they shoot , with Geco ammo .

Thanks Gmac.

Any recommendations on adjusting the rest sight? The rifle shoots low and to the right. The barrel is detailed in top for the rest sight and the barrel is indexed along the dovetailing. Is that for elevation adjustment?

Thats for your eyes and it helps with different front sight inserts , both focusing on tarrget .
Lower your rear sight , and the numbers on the barrel , besides helping with what I posed above , affect your elevation.
What I do
1 ) first find the best spot on the barrel for the rear sight while looking at the target and range youll be shooting . Keep it at that spot .
2) adjust rear sight to get on target
3 ) any movement fore or aft of rear sight will change elevation .

DO NOT DRY FIRE THESE !
Remember , the longer the sight radius, the more accurate you can be

Thanks, again, Gmac.

Anyone ever use the dovetailing on the barrel to mount a scope?

Mine is wearing a 2x Nikon handgun scope mounted with inexpensive Redfield rings.

What size dovetail rings did you use?

I believe 11 mm will fit but make sure first , and remember to get them for a round not flat mounting .

Redfield is a vertical split ring that will fit a wide range of dovetails, and they fit a round mounting that required no mods to fit.
