I have another Exemplar with 15" barrel with Leupold 6.5-20x scope, that I used a 5" hi-rise mount in the taco position. I eventually changed it back over to a standard scope mounting and tried it one time in the creedmore position. Even at 6.5X, it was like looking through a soda straw. Good luck finding the correct targets with it, virtually a pain to use.

My regular creedmore gun for scoped silhouette has a Leupold 2.5-8x handguns scope.

Iíve seen three ads recently from $1014 - $1041. Not much different.

Back in the early 90's I used a Ruger Gov't Target model, which I still have. It loved CCI mini mags. Too old and stove up to use it now.

Revolvers

Like "IHMSA80x80" I also shot IHMSA silhouette for a few decades.

No doubt that the Exemplar is by far the most accurate .22 lr pistol ever made. Not uncommon for them to shoot MOA at 100 yards for 5 rounds either off a bench or from the Creedmore position.

Like "IHMSA80x80" says though not easy to find.

Mine looks like this:



Switching over to mass produced revolvers......

The Dan Wesson Monson guns made between 1968-1978 8" .22's are considered the most accurate mass produced revolvers ever made. Not as good as the custom jobs but I would not like to try and live on the performance difference.

Mine (model 722) looks like so:



For silhouette it wears a partridge front sight.

This is a once in a lifetime 10 round group at 100 yards from the Creedmore position using the stock iron sights for that pistol.



Had no clue it was happening. Spotter just kept saying center hit.

Witnessed by like 30 guys. Never did it since. One of the few targets I bothered to save.

If you can find one, which ain't that easy, it would be something to consider.

I haven't seen any sold for less than that.

I shoot a Contender with a scope and it is very accurate and I like these because they have a history in silhouette.

I just ordered an Annie 1416L just because. Got it from Buds for $996, but that was the last one, I think.

Anschutz is supposedly only making 100 of the 1416L pistols and they retail for $1099. I can't imagine why they would go to the trouble of making these for such a small return.

They should have built those pistols with a heavy barrel, picatinny scope mount, cut down MPR stock and had a pistol capable of competing in some type of BR or long-range competition. Dumb decision building it for a type of competition that is essentially dead.

They are shooters capable of shooting with the rifles, a buddy is building really nice aluminum chassis for them, company name is Accurate Rifle Systems. He's making me one now but leaving the front half unmachined so I can make it heavier for my purpose.

I never believed it until I got one in a trade deal. But the 41 S&W for me is the easiest handgun Iíve ever owned to shoot extremely accurate.

A .22lr Thompson Center Contender used to be the "go to" pistol for silhouette.

It seems like more people are shooting long barrel ruger semi-autos with rifle scopes lately, however.

Ditto! Mine has a 10x Leupold target scope on it. I liked the auto over the Contenders that most were using because if I was holding particularly steady that day,I could get off several shots and then rest while the others were opening and closing their TC's and getting tired.

Steve.
A bit of history, very first 40x40 rimfire score shot was at my old home range with a 10" contender at Ozark here in Ohio by Gail Martin who at the time also had the most perfect 40's in a row with a CF.

Good times back then with only a few classes and everyone learning pistols can be a long range gun.
