I have been researching .22lr accuracy and need to see if the bolt-action is indeed more accurate than say a 10/22 or even stock Marlin 60.

I've got a CMMG in 300 BLK on order and a RRA 458 SOCOM upper on order. I'm guessing it's going to be another month or so before either of them arrives. I hate waiting.

Congrats on a very nice collection piece! I am indeed sure that as you said it 'set you back'--I know the 'ballpark' and the tickets are definitely too high for my admission.

How about a pic?

-Cheers

Ask and ye shall receive.....cheap and cheerful NC sight on it at the moment, I have a Millet 1-4 DMS on order which will be a better fit for me.

Unthreaded barrel, no flash hider/muzzle brake which is how I got it into NJ. The nice people at Kel-Tec worked with me for several months and sprang me one of their Canadian build models.....officially this is .308 not a 7.62....

Given that a brake or flash suppressor deflects gas and blast back towards the shooter, it may be just as well that you didn't get one.
I've read where people who shot neutered ARs reported less perceived report than with rifles equipped with the things.
Perceptions, of course, can vary widely.

If not an M1, what'll it be?

Sounds as if I need to bump a Garand up a little higher on my list if I aim to get a decent price on one.

Brakes direct gases back, resulting in pressure being directed towards the shooter (thus creating greater perceived noise and an increase in blast), however a flash suppressor does not, and can sometimes have the opposite effect. This aspect, as well as the obvious (reducing the flash signature), makes the addition a desirable feature for most folks, albeit a moot point for folks residing in NJ and the like.

Stevens 315 SxS, Ruger Blackhawk, Mauser C96 - I'm on a bit of a retro kick. All that's missing is another milsurp boltie.

I just picked up a couple of 30 year old Ruger .357 revolvers. A Ruger 2.75" Speed Six with the original box and papers, also a Security Six with a 4" barrel.

does ordering count?

I emulated Rittmeister and ordered a faux CCO from RIA
compact frame, commander upper, trijicon nightsights
... this is the first time Ive had a gun made just for me, it was surprisingly easy, and I'm going nuts watching the fedex tracking numbers, I've got a range bag by the door with a basic cleaning kit, ammo, and mags.

Mossberg 500, Field & Deer combo, to which I added a 18.5" security barrel.
My 'Jack or All Trades' shotgun.




Then I decided to upgrade it, my new bedside boom stick needed a few mods.

Spikes Tactical ST15 MLLE about three weeks ago. Love it. Put about 500rds thru it already and ran flawlessly. Glad I got the mid-length, barely any recoil whatsoever.
