    What Make & Model 22 Hornet Would You Buy?

    Lance at "TriggerShims.com" is your friend on the Ruger 77/22 22 Hornet. I replaced my sear with a Volquartsen Target sear and spring. Took my trigger fron 6+ lbs down to about 2lbs 4 oz. He has videos on utube on how to safely do it yourself. Super nice guy and fantastic products...reasonably priced. Check him out.

    Everything About a Handi-Rifle in 22 Hornet

    Hey, no problem guys. I'm getting educated on the life and times of the Handi Rifle. Actually, the prices are still pretty reasonable over on one of the major gun sites, specifically in their H&R Classified Forum. I'm getting educated over there too. The more I learn, the better I like the versatile Handi Rifle.

    Everything About a Handi-Rifle in 22 Hornet

    Hornett22, I have one of the Ruger 77/22s in 22 hornet also and love it. I just thought I might look for a Handi-Rifle in 22 Hornet to plink around with. I have Contenders in 22 Hornet pistol and rifle barrels and like the switch-ability of barrels. As MacGyver said above these barrels are interchangeable also. I think one with a 22 Hornet barrel capable of switching to a 20 gauge shotgun barrel would be fun and useful.

    Everything About a Handi-Rifle in 22 Hornet

    Thanks for the info, MacGyver. I've heard that the barrels are interchangeable. Does this mean that "all" barrels will interchange, or just the rifle barrels? Do you know if extra barrels are pretty readily available? Thanks again.
  5. I would like to know all of the details about a Handi-Rifle chambered in 22 Hornet. I'm considering one and have never even seen one in person, only pics. Things I'm interested in is: trigger pull weight, accuracy, total gun weight, functionality of cocking the hammer with a scope installed, quality of the iron sights, length and twist of the barrel, what kind of wood is the stock and forearm made of, interchangeability of barrels, and just some reviews from people that own or have owned one. Even "opinions" are appreciated. Thanks.

    Taurus/Rossi Circuit Judge Buttstock Cracking

    I figured you were, but I did want to post them. After all, a man can post a pic of his new baby in approximately 9 months... this baby took the best part of three years! Incidentally, I've been using irfanview for years and love it. Thanks for the link anyway. I had to resize the pics to the smallest size irfanview has. Seems to have came out OK, though.

    Trying! I did get it figured out! The new stock is on the right, in the pic on the left and on the top in the pic on the right. It did happen!

    Henry single shot rifles

    Wade 195, I've not held one, but am looking for one of the slightly older ones that has the iron sights... but is drilled for the scope also in .22 Hornet. Almost had a trade deal going on one, but the individual decided to keep it. I'm thinking one should be a "tack driver" in .22 Hornet. I have other guns in .22 Hornet and like the little round. I just bought a Ruger 77/22 in .22 Hornet and love the way it shoots, except for a heavy trigger. I have a Voltquartsen sear with lighter spring to take care of that, and some bolt shims to tighten the group. can't wait to shoot it after the mods.

    That may be. I hear it's pretty high right now.

    Taurus/Rossi Circuit Judge Buttstock Cracking

    Peejman, I've tried to post pics on here before, without any success. I'm pretty much "beginner" literate in Computer 101 and other photo accounts to store them in. I notice this site only allows 0-29MB Max size files. Maybe my pics are too large, due to the resolution size. Anyone know what 0.29MB converts to in the format of "600x800"?

    Taurus/Rossi Circuit Judge Buttstock Cracking

    It has arrived! It has arrived! It has arrived! Actually, it arrived Friday 7-13-18. Now, as soon as I get the mounting screw hole counter-boared the same as the old one, I can install it. Looks like the old one is counter-bored about a quarter of an inch...possibly 3/8", and the new one is much smaller. It needs this counter-bored shoulder for the stock screw washer to seat on. Finally! I won't be shooting it... I'm putting the new stock on it and selling or trading it. I really like .22 Hornets. Maybe I can find something in .22 Hornet that will bring me enjoyment.

    Latest update, not to bore everyone with more of the same old stuff, but to give you an idea of the regular run-a-round I've been getting for the last 2years and 9 months. On 7-6-18, I was told by Bryan that my order was RTP. I asked what that meant. He said it meant "ready to pick". I asked what that status was and he said, " we have been in end of the month inventory and that ended on July 5th. Your butt-stock should be in the mail Monday (7-9-18)". When I called late Monday afternoon, to see if it had shipped, I was assisted by Carlos. Carlos said he tried to access "shipping" but was denied access. He said he would pass my request on to Tammy and have her return my call that day, which she did. Tammy told me that my stock was delayed because they were still doing inventory and that it would possibly ship next Monday (7-16-18) and that I should allow 10 to 15 days for shipping. I'm afraid this is when "I lost it" and told her why not make it six weeks, or six months, or while we were at it, why not six more years! Her reply was, "I'm sorry you feel that way"! At which time, I told her that Rossi didn't care one bit about their customers and promised to get the word to everyone I could about the way I have been treated. Her Reply, "I'm sorry, there's nothing I can do about it". As far as I know, she's as high as you can go without goint to the CEO. This is an "example" of the run-a-round I've been getting since October 26, 2015...and I have the emails and paperwork to prove it. I do believe I have a right to be irritated. What say you?

    What Make & Model 22 Hornet Would You Buy?

    I haven't been able to check it out at the range yet. It's only been fired six times since I got it, but the felt recoil is "very" mild. It'll be interesting to see what it'll do at 100 yards at the range. I have a scope on it. My old eyes are pretty iffy on iron sights these days. If it'll take a yote down at 75-100 yards, I'll be happy with it.

    What Make & Model 22 Hornet Would You Buy?

    Garufa, I realize this is an old thread, but I have since bought a Taurus Raging Hornet. It is massive, with the 10" barrel. Mine came with the original box, a special scope mount that mounts to the vent rib, and all of the original paperwork and wrapping paper. It's an impressive hand gun. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Taurus/Rossi Circuit Judge Buttstock Cracking

    Glad things worked out for you on the Taurus Pro. I got good service from "Taurus" customer service a few years back on a Taurus PT-22 flip barrel .22LR pocket gun. In fact, I got excellent service with a quick turn around and Taurus provided shipping labels. I bragged to my friends about it and highly recommended Taurus to them, for giving me the royal treatment on such an inexpensive little gun. I even lost some magazine release parts, while shooting it in the woods, and they sent me the parts right away.... no problems. But, I feel like I've been really given the middle finger by "Rossi". I understand Taurus and Rossi are the same company these days. Still no word that my buttstock has shipped. Any bets from anyone, that they'll still be giving me flimsy excuses about the shipping this time next week?
