I'm looking at making my 10/22 into something resembling the feel of my AR, and I'm looking for a stock that is of some quality. I'm eying the Tapco stock, but it's Tapco and it looks a little overly tactilol. I really just want a pistol grip and a stock that can be comfortably braced without shifting around. Anyone have any suggestions?

Also anyone have any suggestions for quality .22 suppressors? The YHM break-down cans look really nice but I've heard mixed opinions about YHM suppressors.

If you really want a very solid 10/22 stock which mimics the ergonomics of an AR-15, check out the Nordic Components AR22 chassis. It's costly (I only have one because I got it in trade) but can take AR grips, FF handguards, and stocks

Somebody mentioned straight pull actions in another thread and it reminded me of this little number:




Russian American Armory Company posted:

SOBOL IS A SMALL BORE RIFLE with a wood classic stock (with a holder for extra magazines). The Sobol rifles are intended for hunting the winged and small game. The barrel bore is locked by the crank locking mechanism with vertically arranged axles of rotation. The rifle is manually reloaded with cartridge feeding from the magazine.

The iron sight of Sobol Carbine of 5.6(22LR) caliber is intended for 25 and 75m of 22WMR caliber - for 50,100 and 200m. The receiver is provided with a dovetail base to accept an optical sight. The design of the mounts allows to deliver fire over the iron sight without detaching the optical one. The stock may be made of various kinds of wood (birch, walnut, beech).

They are pretty spendy IIRC but I've seen an interesting review of this rifle.

edit: VVV yup. IIRC it holds two magazines, so you get 3 total from the manufacturer. The main complaint about the rifle was the fit/finish of the plastic and the fact that the mags were plastic. Russians should stick to sheet metal . Ingenious action though.

I like the last line of that description. "We'll put whatever wood we want on here, and you will drat well like it!"

That is a pretty neat rifle though. Is that black patch on the underside of the stock the mag holder?

Just bought my first gun yesterday:





Beretta U22 NEOS. Put a hundred rounds through it yesterday, it's a fun little plinker. The .357 revolvers I've rented the last few trips to the range were fun to shoot, but .38 special is just too damned expensive to shoot a lot, so I decided to pick up a .22 first so I'd have something I can practice a lot with on the cheap. I definitely need the practice.

Oh God Empty Void I am so very jealous of you. I shot that exact same model of the Neos at the range a few weeks back and I'm basically in love. I didn't even realize how natural and wonderful it felt in my hand until I left, and I missed it. I just want a DLX with pink grips now.

I handled one in a store a while ago and it had really great ergonomics. Please get the red/orange grip frame and make a zapper. I probably would have bought one of these instead of a buckmark if they were easier to find. Hell, I might get one just for the zapper thing anyway. How much was it?

Picked the Neos up new for $289 at my local range, actually. They had a few for that price. Called around first and couldn't find any new ones elsewhere, and the one used one I found was even more. MSRP on the INOX model is $375, so I was happy.

I found the grip very comfortable, though I guess it might take some getting used to if you've been using a 1911 grip for a while. I've only been shooting a few times, though, and mostly with revolvers, so it didn't feel unnatural to me at all.

The trigger is pretty heavy, especially compared to the Ruger Mark II I rented once. I knew that the NEOS has a heavy trigger, though, so that doesn't bother me at the moment. I might modify it someday if I get the urge for some tweakin'. Some folks say the triggers can be a bit inconsistent, but I haven't really noticed anything like that, at least so far.

The living pipe cleaner

I just called up one of the area gun shops (the only one with any significant stock of pistols) and asked about the CZ Kadet Kit, and they said they no longer carried it. The reasoning they gave was that it has to be fitted by a Gunsmith in order to function, and that it is not just a drop-in conversion kit. Anyone care to shed some light on this statement?

edit: The gun I'm wanting to drop a Kadet onto is the SP-01

Most of the "complaints" about the Heritage .22s are "it's not a Ruger Single Six".

If UPS wasn't such a bunch of slugs, my new .22 rifle would be pimped here already.

The one complaint I ever had with the Neos was it's trigger. Fortunately it's striker fired so it's pretty easy to fix- just stone down the engagement surfaces a few thousands of an inch and replace the sear/safety plunger spring.

Here's a handy guide. Just take it slow and as you go do some firing and drop tests to make sure the sear only disengages when you want it to:

I haven't shot it yet, but I picked up the (new? unfired?) Heritage Rough Rider .22 that I saw at the pawn shop last week. It seems to be of sturdy construction, the cylinder locks up nice, it has a decent trigger and I paid $150 out the door.

It's my first single action, so who knows if I'll like it, but I mostly bought it because the first handgun I ever shot was a single action .22 that was from my grandfather's cabinet.

The Hero We Need


The BSA has landed.













The cable for the camera, however, has taken flight; I hope I didn't leave it at the convention, back in mid-February.

In any event, I'll cheat and use the pictures from the auction for now.






It's a BSA International Mk II, a single-shot Martini-action target rifle. The lever coming down the front of the grip moves forward, dropping the shiny-shiny block, and, if a round/brass is in the chamber, the spring-loaded extractor will apparently zip it along that curve 8+ feet. (Guess I better take the rightmost lane.) Big round takedown screw on the right will all the entire action to drop out, allowing a cleaning rod to ride all the way back through that hole drilled in the back of the receiver and along that groove cut in the stock, as seen in picture #2. <koff> Boresnake. <koff> You can also see the minor crack just at the top of the grip, with a matching one on the right side. These *may* have been repaired - injected Krazy-Glue? - but I can't quite tell.

The wood is dented and banged a bit, but otherwise nice, once I get the last of the paper inventory/ID stickers and residue removed. One of those and a bunch of neat markings can be seen in image #3. There are mounting blocks for a scope on the barrel, but they're a bit too long for what I have - what size rings do I need for the scope bells?

All that slime on the sides of the receiver isn't rust, but grease. There's some minor surface rust here and there, but that'll fix easily. Bore is *beautiful*, trigger seems to be set in the sub-1-pound range already (goes down to 6 oz via the internal adjustment screws), and is 14 pounds of "dammit I need a 24-hour range" fun.

It is missing the actual inserts for the front sight - not sure what the one in there is supposed to be, but it's not going to be useful for shooting. Brownell's has a set of 10, I'm gonna call around and see if I can find 'em locally tomorrow morning.
