  1. Great price for a sweet little shooter! If it hasn't sold by Monday let me know; I'll be up your way! ;-)
  2. That's... remarkable!   I'm glad you shared, and looking forward to more summary, especially since I've got several 452s myself!
  3. I know several shops in Chattanooga offer them frequently. Have you checked with any?
  4. The 700s are awesome, but probably more $ for what I want to do. I saw those a while back, maybe it was you who pasted a link to them going for a pretty good price? I think you're right, and it would be a similar, but much better option to the Handi Rifle. Given that I want to do something subsonic, and 22mag subsonic is, well, 22lr, I think I'll just stick with the 22s I've already got. Maybe I'm missing something? Feel free to call me out if so! This was super helpful Dolomite. Thanks, as always. I was thinking they were pretty similar in capacity and functionality, but I think you've pointed out that they are more different than I was thinking. I think you've helped tip me over to the 300BO side of things. While I hadn't mentioned it in this thread, I'm actually REALLY glad you brought this up! I've got a Rossi 1892 lever gun in .357. I think it would make a SWEET little suppressed rig with heavy .38s! I'll have to have someone shorten the mag tube under the barrel, since it's flush with the end of the barrel, and of course thread the barrel. Then, I'll have to figure out sights. I wonder if anyone makes tall sights for 1892s? :) It's a 16" barrel, so even with the can won't be bonkers long. I think it'll be a hoot!
  5. Ok TGO, it's time for everyone's favorite game! "Who wants to spend Mechanically's money vicariously and without negative reprocussion from your better half?" Here's the scenario for your enjoyment today: I have a 1st gen Liberty Mystic in jail awaiting transfer. I know the new Mystic X is better, but this guy was $399 out the door with free shipping. $200 to uncle Sam and $50 to my FFL and we're in business. The Mystic is multi-cal. .22 up to many rifle cartridges including .223, 7.62x39, and .300BO among them. I have a CZ Scorpion Evo which will be the primary device the Mystic lives with. But I'd also like to add a rifle caliber to its functionality. I have a VZ58 chambered in .223 I would dearly like to use, but its 12" barrel is shorter than the required 16" limit for the can in that caliber. I've got a great Mini14, but it seems that a can on that platform may be more trouble than it's worth. And, in the end, I want quiet. That means a bolt or single shot. The Handi Rifle in 300BO has my attention. I understand they've been tossed in the dumpster by Remington. "Thanks Obama!" But, they're selling for $250 or less at the moment, are already threaded, and add to my already substantial tactical credentials. I don't have anything in this caliber right now. I'm not really an AR guy, and so not very interested in a Blackout AR at the moment, though that could change. In the other corner, we have the CZ 527 chambered in 7.62x39. I love all things Czech (as you have no doubt deduced already) and would love to own one. I'd have to move the front sight and thread the barrel since it wasn't designed with suppression in mind. It's also more than double the cost of a Handi Rifle. I don't own anything in this caliber either, but would love to have a classic beaver barf VZ58 in it. So, what to do? 300bo is easy to find in subsonic loadings, but costs a fortune in any speed. 7.62 is cheap all day, except in subsonic. I'd probably have to roll my own. Can I even load 7.62 with something like a 220-250gr projectile to take advantage of subsonic physics? Maybe just figure out how to find a 7.62 Handi Rifle barrel and have both options? (This is unlikely now that production is nill.) What will I regret the least in 5 years? What will make me happy? Help me ObiWan, you're my only hope...
  6.   Interesting. Why do you shoot your singles more if they're not your preference?   And, any Handi's gathering dust in the safe?   :cool:
  7. Thanks for the help, guys! So, is 1:7 adequate? Would something else be better for a strictly subsonic suppressed setup? I prefer this bolt action to a single shot, but I seem to recall seeing handi-rifles being sold for a pittance and with great accuracy reports. Maybe that would make a better platform?
  8. Man, wish you were closer! That's about my favorite defensive load, would love to have a case to train with! GLWTS. 
  9. Man, that's a compelling pricepoint! I have yet to dabble in 300BO, but can someone smarter tell me if twist rate mattes for 300BO? And if so, I wonder what the twist is on this barrel. If I got one later this year, it would be strictly for work with a can and subsonics, so I'd want to have the optimal setup for that type of slow, heavy load...
  10. Tagged to follow. OP; what holster setup do you use for your daily carry?
  11. These make great carry pieces with a Simply Rugged holster. I doubt it'll be here long...!
