This H&R M12 Rifle Will SHOOT



Log in to see fewer ads
Last Saturday I attended a gun auction, primarily interested in a Luger. It went for more than I was comfortable spending. But, sitting in a rack was an H&R M12 rifle in beautiful condition and I bought it for what I think was a very fair price.

Today I took it to the range after mounting a 20X scope on it. Three shots into the 50 yard berm to get it on paper followed by two shots on paper and a scope adjustment. Then I shot five consecutive 5-shot groups as seen below at 50 yards. Cartridges were SK Pistol Match Special.

I think this H&R M12 rifle will shoot.

I have to agree, I have a M12 that shoots the best 100yd groups I have ever shot. Mine really likes Eley Edge which I think is no longer made but SK Standard + shot well also.

Still one of the best old target rimfire rifles for the price. My last longrange match was won with one beating a lot of more expensive guns.

Thanks everyone. I'm really pleased with it and will likely use it in our club's benchrest matches.

I picked one up yesterday as well. A very mint example with of course, missing sights. A attached my International rear and Olympic globe and headed to the range late yesterday evening. With quartering head winds at 15mph the fun shoots the cheap stuff at possibles at fifty. Blazers, Lightenings, and Thunderbolts all remain within the ten ring with twenty shot groups on the fifty yard target. Can’t wait for a little calmer day with some good ammo.
Great rifle but the stock has to go!

Thank you Gerald. This is my second H&R M12. The first was purchased directly from the CMP, NIB. This one has a nicer stock and I'm pleased to have gotten it. I'm going to give it a try at our next club benchrest match at 50 yards.

W8LON, if yours shot that well in 15 mph winds, I'm impressed. That's a fine group.
