    marlinman93 replied to a thread lyman 1878? in Single Shot Guns
    I can't add much to the good advice given, but I will say that I don't mind paying a little extra for a nicer looking rifle. That may be better grade of stocks, or better fit and finish. Regardless, I just feel better looking at a nice quality gun...

    As a kid I witnessed a grain elevator explosion. For the non-rural types grain elevators are large storage silo's. Grains of wheat are barely flammable. Wheat dust on the other hand is highly flammable/explosive. While I am not interested enough...

    I'm right there with you, but still buying and selling whenever the urge or something pretty gets my interest! I love shooting still, but I love nice lumber too!

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    https://www.atf.gov/file/100871/download What activities require a dealer’s license? Federal law does not establish a “bright-line” rule for when a federal firearms license is required. As a result, there is no specific threshold number or...

    I'd say they certainly are "real schuetzen rifles" even if the twist is a bit slower than most use who shoot 200 yd. schuetzen matches using a .32-20 caliber. It's got all the features of any schuetzen rifle, and I think if the accuracy is there...

    It is not just NRA BPCR matches that have this rule. There are a number of long range dinger shoots that also do not allow hammerless guns. I realize these may not be NRA sanctioned, or affiliated to a national organization, but there are others....

    This whole hammer vs. hammerless rule is stupid, and has always caused hard feelings amongst Sharps Borchardt owners who wanted to compete with their old guns. Considering almost every competition uses chamber flags and doesn't rely on hammers to...

    That is a really nice looking rifle, and in a great caliber too! If the twist rate is fast enough it could be a really great shooter! Love the schuetzen styling on it!

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 17 Mach 2 in Rimfire Area
    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...

    While I dearly love Hepburn rifles, I can't say a side lever is much good for extracting any case that has much resistance to leave the chamber. They are fantastic for bech shooting where I never need to roll the gun on it's side to extract a case...

    Your friend is giving you bad advice. Rimfire's erode from the glass beads in the priming compound. With a borescope you can see it at about 20,000 rounds. On target rifles 50,000 rounds without loss is not unusual. I know of one range rental...

    One of the main issues with the early 17M2 in semi-auto's are dirty chambers. Later some of the manufacture oversized the chambers to limit this issue than cracked neck and shoulders became an issue. I have one of the first Magnum Research 17M2's....

    Entry level wood is the key to keeping the Shiloh down in that price range. As soon as you go a bit higher it jumps pretty quickly. And of course you don't get any special sights at that price either. Higher grade wood is a great investment if you...
