    Needing to open one up myself, just how much underside can the pin be without leaking too much? I thought I would need to make a new pin for .429 to .431ish. Seems it would be tapered if only open part way thru, how do you control taper with split...

    rking22 replied to a thread FWB 602 first shots! in AirGuns
    Fine rifle, too bad about the agravation but suspect it will fade as you get to know it. Dont know about your experience with match sights, but most people dont get enough light around the bull. Be sure you use a front rong that gives you a good...

    This is the 21st century, gotta be faster to be better! I liked the little hm2 but held off to see if it would live,, well it didn't. Would have been more useful to me than the hrm. Not to mention the Winchester offering, it really blows up stuff!

    Nice, I guess it's a medium sporter like the 45-70? Fun little guns. I had to go look at the Skinner, interesting. I like shooting these with open sights, a peep would be nice. I got 1.1 inch 3 shot groops today from my No1, at 50. They seem to like...

    rking22 replied to a thread Who likes 22 Short? in Rimfire Area
    Shot shorts grpwing up, they were cheaper,at first. Now I like them but it's because I like my M241 rifle and it's short only. In the other applications I just use a good subsonic long rifle. More flexable than the short in my world anyway.

    Nope, not me, and I love 22s. But they need really decent triggers, and should be notably lighter than this Henry. Now, a trimmer one in 32-20 might make me figure out how to fix the trigger :)
