Re: .22 Rifle Suggestions
BTW, my truck gun is a 10/22. I hate the beast, it just won't die and it keeps on shooting straight and true no matter how much I abuse it. Seriously, it looks like it has been drug ten miles down bad road, and it has, and it keeps right on ticking. I think Bill Ruger could have taught Timex a thing or to about taking a licking and keep on ticking.
It's ridden for years in a dog box chasing coonhounds all across hell's half acre, been tossed and thrown in the creek, whupped up on coons as a club to get them off the dogs, left out in the rain and now serves as my dispatch gun on the trapline. Even with half the rear sight gone it still turns in half inch groups at fifty with stuff it likes.
The only weak point in the whole design that I have found is the rotary magazine. It does not like to stay loaded for long periods of time nor does it like dust. The springs will take set and dust can jam it. Keep it clean and unload it from time to time and work the spring a few times and it goes right back into action. The trigger is not match grade but on a beater rifle what do you expect.
Subsonics will not cycle the action. The ceebees will not even half stroke it so no stovepipes or other such nonsense. I use it as a single shot for dispatch. Insert magazine, jack one in, do the deed, drop the magazine and extract the empty. Simple no fuss no mess.
