Yes, all are the curved style that are meant for your finger. I blew the pict up a bit.parshooter said:Did you notice the sticky re: bolt handles above?
btw, the linked pic was too small to compare.

Enter in the "tactical" bolt handle, it works much better with gloves or if you hands are wet with mud from laying in a rice field hunting geese. Once you get to used to that style, you really don't like the curved one.
Tactical= paint it matt black, add $100 to price for being "tactical" and market to a large percentage of gun owners, while poor little me would be happy with the normal "non tactical" item that often times could be had in the same matt black.Vincent said:Had not realized that 10/22 had become "Tactical" "Tactical" having to do with guns that are for fighting right? "Tactical" is a word derived from tatic. The only "tatics" my 10/22 was ever involved in was how to get a jackrabbit or golfball.
Is it just me or does it seem that in the shooting world right now all you do is paint it black and call it "Tactical" and it is a hit? I see a bunch of Varmint rifles painted black and called "Tatical". You know what that has done for our sport? It got Varmint rifles added to the list of things that people want to ban. WHY? Because instead of shooting ground squirrels with our varmint rifles they have become sniper rifles because "Tactical" implies shooting people. I swear we are our own worst enemies sometimes.
Well, it stands to reason that the Mossy Plinkster wasn't called "tactical" in the sixties... it was the sixties. The term didn't really come into broad use until, as best as I recall, the early '80s.Vincent said:(Orthopedic) Is what I would call your stock Reed. The old Mossberg "Plinkster" from the sixties had that fold down fore end grip but nobody was calling it "tactical". Your solution is orthopedic. I've broken my back 3 times and I know all about orthopedic solutions to problems but that is most definately NOT TACTICAL.
It's just my opinion (and it may be unpopular) that this whole Tactical thing scares alot of non shooters just as we were winning our concealed carry rights straightened out and other Feinstein like gun control put in a box. When that Mod 700 with a scope was blue and walnut and we called it a deer or varmint rifle nobody wanted to take them away. Now we paint them black a show them "killing" man sized (and shaped) targets a half mile away they show up on every "takeaway list" and the news idiots are calling them over powered sniper rifles.
We even have magazine articles, many of them, that tell us that our "defensive battery" is incomplete unless we have a rifle that is designed to kill a person from far away. That fact is if they are that far away we have time to call the police, or run or any of a bunch of other things. We DON'T defend our selves from people far away. 90% of this tactical crap is just that, crap, B.S., poop, caca, excretment. But then that is just my opinion and everyone else is welcome to their's.
If you want to play Army or Cops and robber try paint ball. Too many wannbes. Too many mall ninjas (I learned that one from Snake ).
Cool!!! I made a "comb" out of a black neoprene tennis elbow band, it looks like the one in the pics! My "sniper comb"gsonnenmd said:

If my purpose was to kill, I would definitely use a highpower rifle to do it with. I know there have been many folks killed using the 22, but the round isn't considered to be an effective sniping round, up close and personal is another story.Up close and personal IS a "tactic". It's called "stealth" :silly: I only witnessed the shot of a 10/22 with a fully suppressed barrel once and I was amazed!!! One of those could cause a LOT of damage in the wrong hands (or the right hands at a bad time). I was wondering when I was watching the movie "sniper" why they didn't have suppressed guns. I think a suppressed .22 would have to be much quieter than a suppressed gun of larger caliber but hadn't seen that yet.
