    I have been out of the “shopping” part of Contenders for a couple decades so can’t help with that aspect. The original Contender is fine with those rounds, the Encore came to being because the market wanted to put 308 Winchester and up in the TC. I...

    Same here, both clear and black work perfectly. All my magazines drop right out in my hand when I push in on the release. Some needed the sides flattened to do that. The clear are more likely to need it. What I’m referring to is just put a piece of...

    I have used everything from 9s to 4s, all worked if they were going fast enough. Seems the 1290 and better kills them much better than the 1150 stuff. My experience with shot and squirrels is pretty minimal, generally incidental to bird hunting or...

    Another vote for the 10 round mags. I have tried a few of the extended over the years, the ONLY one that actually worked was the Ruger BX 25. The rest were junk and ALL made the gun cumbersome to handle sticking out like a sore toe. Ruger made, may...

    rking22 replied to a thread Bolt pistols? in Single Shot Guns
    Wanted an xp100 when I was shooting silhouette in the 80s. Not enough $$, so shot Contenders. I recently picked up a Chipmunk and find it great fun. Like a 2 1/2 pound rifle, I squirrel hunt with it. This morning only saw 2 squirrels, a hawk got...

    rking22 replied to a thread Cz527 in Factory Rifles
    My CZ527 is a hornet, but I have a Ruger NO1 in 7.62x39 with the same 9.5 twist. I shoot the NOE Ed Harris bullet at 2050 FPS with no problems and fine accuracy. 5 in 1.5 at 100 and I don’t cull very hard nor weigh sort bullets. Hate shooting bench...

    Very nice, all around! Those M12s in 16 are wonderful, truly hits like a 12 and totes like a 20! Homemade shot has taken lots of birds, looks like you’ve added to the tally with a nice one too!

    3 inch Gp100 in 44 special or even a 10mm unless the OP is absolute on the 44 mag. I have never had a coyote even wait for me to get a shot off if an unexpected meeting, his reflexes are better than mine! I have killed 8 with 22 lr, and quite a few...

    I have the Browning SA 22, same takedown concept. The Browning mounts the scope on a cantilevered mount on the barrel. I experience no change in POI or accuracy after takedown. I have been shooting one since early 82, it was more accurate at 50...

    The oldest I regularly shoot would be a first year 16 gage M12, 1914. Bought it from the daughter of a family friend, who’s father had bought it new. That gun accounted for LOTS of game from quail to ducks, some in my presence. Then there is a 1919...

    Funny how things that were never really on your radar can become highly interesting, all a sudden. I have always been a pump gun guy and little interest in autos. Guy showed up Saturday with a 11-48 skeet gun in 410, never knew I wanted one till I...

    I got to handle one and shoot a few with it about 15 years ago. Very nice gun, from a different time. The guys that assembled those guns were more skilled than 95% of the “gun smiths” around now. They knew their products and had the skill to hand...

    This thread got me thinking about the Tac 14 again. I decided to spend 25$ on the grip and put it on my 18 inch barreled 870, instant Tac 18 for 25 bucks. I kinda like it, but it’s pretty heavy, to what I expected. I shot some clays off a sporting...

    I think that’s a good choice, especially since it was your dad’s gun. It was purpose built for the task, an a classic to boot! I like shooting clays with field guns. Shot 4 rounds of skeet today. 20 gage Iver Johnson SxS first, then my Rem M17. Man...

    None of my 22 pumps have scopes so the only data I have is with factory issue opens. My first 121 would hold 1/2 inch at 25 yards with 5 shot groups. Never shot the other for groups, just to zero. Shot one of the games at rim fire central with my...

    No, I apparently reground it to something else somewhere along the way. I have a lifetime supply of brass and got hooked on the 35 Remington. Just took another look and it be gone.

    Made a breech plug (45-70)that had no rim and took a 209 primer. Proof of concept, it worked, it was boring. I like flint locks better as well. My modern muzzle loader is a 54 underhammer, round ball gun using #11 caps. Friend used the idea for a...

    Go for it, rust bluing is simple cheap and appropriate. My 141 in 30Rem was bought for the express purpose of refinishing into a shooter. I got the crack in the wrist fixed and bedded the head of the stock to the receiver to keep it from coming...

    I have a 141 and shoot it, hunt with it as well. The design is kinda hard on brass, the rim gets beat up. I have had no trouble using neck sized only but I load 31141 cast to about 1750 with RL 7 rofle powder. I just use the factory sights, at 61...

    Older Winchester and Savage,Browning 92 but that’s about it and I’m a bit picky on vintage of those. As to why, they are light and handy, just what I want in a lever gun. Had a couple Marlins back in the early 80s, too bulky for me. Rossi 92 clone,...
