  1. @Hozzie , That would be too bad if the "old" trainers are left out like the 82G or the H&R, although I suppose the Mossberg 44US would be allowed. Heck, maybe they should just open up that factory class to all legitimate military trainers and factory production rifles under the dollar limit. If there is a date of manufacture limit then it would be a really odd class, leaving what, CZ's? Big jump from CZ to Vudoo, Cooper or Annies and the latter 3 wouldn't make the price cut. If at @plinker4life can't use the Kimber in ARA then I suspect he will appreciate what might possibly be the best shooting 82G in the region. Regardless, it pales in comparison with the Turbo V3 with Shilen ratchet he is shooting in his first couple of ARA matches. Heck, we have traded the same .22lr at least 3 times between us. P.S. @Hozzie, Have you got any favorite breeds or types of dogs? My wife and I have had Blue Heelers, Airedales, Am Staffs, Staffy Bulls, Bull Terriers. For our old age we have a "catahoula look alike" (momma was a pitxaussie, father a rolling stone) and a Glen of Imaal Terrier. I had Malinois, Rotts, Bouviers, GSDs on our nuke site in Germany. I have been around a lot of German hunting breeds and know more than I should about terriers in general and APBTs.
  2. @TomInMN , My complete with paper, box, sights Kimber 82G w/Mueller 40x. The Kimber can shoot with its 6oz trigger and other tweaks. My trade partner needs a rifle that he can use in the new ARA benchrest factory class. My wife has taken to loving shooting "her" Savage heavy barrel 7.62x39 (barrelled action built by Dolomite Supafly) so I thought a Savage .22LR bolt gun was in order for her. Pic below is my 62yr old wife working out the kinks first time firing a centerfire rifle.
  3. I am trading into this Savage MKII McRees chassis with Rifle Basix trigger, 8-32x33 20mm Mueller scope. OK, the eyepiece and sunshade may have to go, but the package appeals to me.
  4. My only AK caliber rifle. Barreled action by Dolomite Supafly. Single shot Savage action 7.62x39. If I recall he used a Green Mountain .308 blank. Bushnell 30mm 10x on top. It shoots saltine crackers at 185yrds with ease.
  5. I got this in a trade a while back. Kind of rare PPC, being it is .357 GP100 with Mascot sight rib, unknown gunsmith. It is an early serial # GP100. The trigger rolls so nice. It is fun to shoot from cupcake .38s to fullhouse .357s.
  6. Picked up one of these S&W EZ 380s from Academy a while back for 329.00. This is the version without thumb safety. It does everything a .380 is supposed to but easier: 1) shoots fast to point of aim (recoil is negligible) 2)reliable 3) mags are the easiest center pistol mags I have ever loaded 4) You can rack the slide with two fingers. It is not as small as my Keltec P32 but it is so easy to grab and shoot. I can't begin to recall all the small handguns I have owned, including various ultra light revolvers. This thing beats them all in terms of ease of use. I am not getting younger. A review: https://dailycaller.com/2018/06/28/gun-test-sw-mp-380-shield-ez/
  7. My new to me 82G. Custom bedded, custom trigger to 6oz, shoots MOA with "cheap" Tasco Japanese 8-32x40mm target scope and SK Pistol Match.
  8. It ain't pretty but it is pretty functional (1022): Archangel Precision stock, Feddersen nitrided .920 barrel, custom trigger by the late "Cletus Hungwell," Kidd bolt, SWFA 20x42 30mm scope in BKL one-piece rings.
  9. I have a friend who lost his bolt for his Tikka T3 Lite .270 stainless between here and Australia. I have snooped around at the usual places that sell gun parts but can't find one. Other than contacting Beretta who imports them, any ideas or contacts who might be able to find one. Brownells has a couple lefthand ones in a couple of calibers for 339.99 but nary a right hand.
  10. LOL. I have one and have had it for years. Easiest pistol to carry and shoot I have ever found. It is the best mousegun ever made in my opinion. Hard to find them though. The hard chrome versions are worth the extra money if you can find one.
  11. I had one of these some years ago. I used youtube to disable one or two of the safeties. Ran great. I was impressed. Some body was even more impressed with it and bought it off me. I suggested to a big box store's corporate gun buyer that they should stock it and he looked at me like I had a 3rd eye.
  12. I wonder if the Savage MKI FVT has a loading tray that looks like that.
  13. I have this single shot Savage .223 with an aftermarket loading tray that I can literally toss a round in and slam the bolt home without thinking. Can anyone think of a moderate price (sub 700) single shot .22, any vintage, that can be loaded and seated the same way?
  14. Picked up an import T-bolt 144 from Robertson Trading Post while on a visit there with a fellow TGOr. It was in the "has to see the doctor rack." I always wanted a T-bolt 144. I walked out the door shedding 300.00 for the 144. Took it home and tossed the poorly fittted 10 rd mag and it didn't look like those sold by Havlins. I took this: https://www.gunpartscorp.com/products/39430A and made it into a single shot. It has a spot welded globe front sight, Parker Hale brass aperture holder under the grip. S130 rear sight. Several missing items like all hardware for hand stop, no sling, etc. I ran about 20 patches through the barrel. I slapped some poly on the stock and Birchwood Casey bluing on the barrel and receiver. Just to see what it would do I put some high rings on it to clear the rear sight and put on a cheap Tasco Varmint. Using Fiocchi SV LRN it was boringly accurate off a Caldwell front rest and squeeze rear bag at 25 yrds. So I cranked up the magnification and started to shoot 2" saltines at 185 yrds using Federal Automatch. It got so that I could hit about 1 cracker out of 3 shots, so I smiled and bagged the 144 for another day.
