I have a question for you guys, hope someone knows. I've got a colt m4 .22lr and I've been wanting to change up the butt stock. My question is what butt stock fit?

Gave my GF this belt holstered NAA 22LR for her bday recently... (belt is mine as pic was taken before the gifting). Gun was used with some frame marking from plastic flip out holster so I polished the flat sides of the frame and changed out the grips to improve the look. GF (a CCW holder) can shoot it pretty well but too small for my hands to operate reliably. A fun 22LR nonetheless...

The "finished" 22/45 LITE.

VQ Trigger

removed loaded chamber indicator (stupid lawyers)
removed magazine disconnect (stupid lawyers) and replaced with MKII bushing
Removed the detent on the bolt release so you can "slingshot" the bolt
Williams Fire Sights
Installed +1 capacity magazine base plates that make seating mags WAY easier.
Hogue grips to tame that massive 22 recoil. Actually to just make it beefier.

I think thats it.
 
I picked my SR-22 at Bargain Pawn new in box,added a steel guide rod from Galloway precision,holster from Sportsmans Warehouse,extra mag.from Midway USA and a magazine bumper plate from Tandemkros to give it a 15 round capability.
 
Picked this up Thursday gotta get it out and shoot it either this weekend or next. Ruger 10-22 with stainless bull barrel. It came with the Troy T22 chassis and all the BX mags along with a cordura case. Had to put the original stock back on it so my 7 year old can shoot it. Added the scope from my Marlin 700 until I can get another one.

My Winchester 52 match target rifle.






A excerpt from this January 1935 American Rifleman below:

Some time ago I sent Paul Dodge, of Yreka, California an old Winchester 52 action, and had him fit it with a very heavy 29-inch Winchester barrel. Dodge finished the outside of the barrel, chambered it very closely for the 22 l.-r., and fitted it to the action without any excess of headspace. He fitted blocks for my scope, and after getting the blocks in place he fitted a new beavertail Winchester stock, carefully hand-checking the stock and fore-end. He greatly speededup the action, and fitted a trigger-stop screw, which latter is a great help as it leaves the trigger finger well supported after the striker has been released, without any back jerk. Altogether Dodge did a wonderful job on this rifle.

After getting the big rifle home and testing it with the scope, I decided that it was well worthy of the best sights possible to procure. Worthy to be sure, for with its own choice of ammunition it would put five shots on a tack at 60 yards, if I could hold it. I have owned and used many fine small-bore rifles, but never one that would shoot with this Winchester-Dodge - combination. I ordered a Lyman 4S-J rear and 17-A front sight, and had H . W. Bradley, of Salmon, Idaho, install them. He did a beautiful job, making a long, low ramp for the front sight, which put on the final finish.

Dodge had found that this rifle performed perfectly with plain Remington Kleanbore ammunition. 1 was unable to get this in Salmon, but found that the cheaper grade of Remington Kleanbore greased Hi-Speed did all that I could ask of any small-bore ammunition, and even more. It was purely a matter of holding, and the size of the group was all up to me, for the gun would put ten straight into a space so small that most riflemen would swear that, I was crazy were I to give the size. Dodge sent me several targets shot by himself with straight Remington low-velocity Kleanbore, and these confirm my opinion of the rifle. I have proved to my own satisfaction that this rifle with the above-mentioned amrnunition will consistently group inside of the X-ring of our standard N . R. A . smallbore target on a still day, I include one of my targets shot at 60 yards with 5-A scope. I f I had not made several others like this I would consider i t just one of the exceptional groups that occasionally crop up. However, this rifle has done the same thing too many times to leave any doubt in my mind. I wish I could hold this well at all times.

This rifle has a much heavier barrel than the regular Winchester heavy-barrel 52, the barrel also being one inch longer. Dodge made up for his own use another rifle with the same kind of barrel, and used the same chambering reamers, but fitted it to a Ballard action, and he has been getting the same results with it as I have with mine which speaks very well for these heavy barrels. He made a high comb scope stock for his rifle, and fitted a high Lyman 48 and high front base for Lyman 17-A that can be removed when scope is used, thus having both the scope and the iron sights at the same height.

I killed all the ground squirrels and chucks on my little ranch with this outfit last summer, and then cleaned up some neighboring ranches. I used the scope and held for the head. When the scope is used it is surprising how far the little rodents can be killed with the rifle sighted to shoot center at 60 yards.

Of course much of the success is due to the fine ammunition now being turned out, and to the fact that this ammunition apparently fits this particular barrel perfectly. I took particular pains to sight-in this rifle at 60 yards at a turkey match this fall, in a strong wind, and then took the first two birds with absolutely center shots, rest shooting. I then handed the rifle to a friend—a fine rifleman—and he took the next two birds with center shots. Such a performance is not accident, but is rather a combination of fine holding and perfect ammunition, plus the most accurate small-bore rifle I have ever known. On still days or in a steady and unvaryng wind I will take my chances on this small-bore, but in a puffy or variable wind any of the other turkey rifles I have mentioned would be more reliable. From years of experience I have found that a sudden gust of wind will kick the little bullets out of the ten-ring when a larger, heavier bullet, even at lower velocity, will stay in.

For all-around turkey-match shooting, day in and day out, a large bore is much superior to a small, not only on account of wind, but also because of the occasional shot that goes' into some other bullet hole. A large bullet will cut the hole out larger and leave no doubt as to the shot, whereas a .22 w i ll often go through and leave no trace of its having done so, unless (as is often not the case) the targets are marked as they should be will a clean sheet of paper that is moved slightly behind the target after each shot.

It is much more convenient to load a modern heavy-barrel Springfield, a smallbore rifle, or even an old Sharps, during a cold day at a turkey match, than the Schuetzen rifles or muzzle-loaders; still, I would not take a lot for the fun and experience 1 have had with the latter in tough competition. Also one learns much from these fine old pieces that is of help with modern equipment. I consider a properly-managed turkey match one of the finest, cleanest sports we have during the winter months, from it. - Elmer Keith

Wanted an older type single action revolver but budgets tight. Walking around Sportsmans I see the cimmaron plinkster and the price was perfect so I brought her home.

Meet the .22lr cimmaron plinkster hopefully get some nice days to get on the range and put some lead downrange!
