I thought it was just me because I can't expand the picture. I can't even see any type of line from the receiver all the way to the end of the barrel that would make it 2 pieces. Almost looks like some type of barrel shroud mated (really well) with the receiver. Somebody definitely put some work into it. I too would be interested in some more detailed pics.

Happy to get more photos posted, and will do so on the weekend. Thanks!

I've had a Cricket going on 20 years.

2 1/2 pounds with a 2 pound trigger.

Perfect for a decrepit old man like myself to carry in the woods.

Enjoy that Cricket heavy barrel, it should shoot like gangbusters.

Very Nice!

Not only more pictures, but also how much does that rig weigh?

Barrel length and diameter?

That is a really heavy barrel for a Crickett!

Definitely looks like a heavier barrel than the factory offers.

Haven't seen the 1 inch diameter cataloged since 2008. The were a little before their time. We used one to take a .920 17 hm2 barrel and make a sweet kids squirrel rifle. Wish I'd made a lot more.....

Hey guys-got my rings, but before I mounted that massive scope...I figured I'd snap some photos! I'd appreciate any input on the history of these, when they were offered, how they were advertised, etc. If anyone knows of an aftermarket, lighter trigger pull spring for Crickett rifles, I'm all ears! lol

Chunky thing, can't wait to shoot it!

That looks so nice! Not that it matters but I bet it's muzzle heavy, lol. Maybe add some weight inside the stock to balance it but then it would be a BR rifle for sure. Wonder who made this if not cricket, was it cricket? Why they stop if so, maybe too heavy for their general buyers.
Imagine, all stainless, ahhhhhh

Its very much a keystone crickett heavy barrel target.

Neat little rifles. I buy every stainless one I see.... so far only one since 2009.....

Wish they re releases them in this arraignment instead to the other variants they have done recently.
