    Beretta Xtrema 2

    Hey guys, quick question. Can anyone point me to somewhere that I can get a new barrel for a Beretta Xtrema 2 12ga shotgun? We use one at work and the barrel burst one day when one of my coworkers was shooting it and we need a new one, but they seem to be backordered everywhere Ive looked...

    Marlin Rear Sight "Aha!"

    The M1 Garand sights are metered in 1 minute per click as are the A2 sights on an M16 (20") For those not metered, a sight adjustment of about the thickness of a sheet of paper is about 1 minute of angle (+ or - depending on sight radius)

    They are referring to the company, Solid Concepts, that made a metal 1911 out of a 3d printer that laser sinters stainless steel. That machine is worth millions.

    Can anyone recommend a 1X sight with a simple reticle?

    The eotech is battery powered and loses its reticle when dead, which is a deal breaker per the OP. Prismatic sight or scope is the way to go it seems, especially considering the astigmatism

    turkey problems

    Keep in mind, some gobblers have pretty large ranges. At least for the Osceola's here in Florida, some biologists think that a dominate gobbler can have up 300 acres to himself. I work on a 1800 acre hunting preserve and our biologist says no more than 12 can be taken each year.

    Picked up two from the CMP

    I got my refurbed 853 from the CMP as well, but with the Monte Carlo stock. Shoots incredible with RWS Meisterkugeln pellets.

    Biggest cartridge flops ...

    I think the .17 Mach2 was pretty much a flop .45GAP wasnt a huge hit either...the only reason it still exists is because of LE contracts with Glock, ala Florida Highway Patrol .300 Whisper had the makings of being a star, but SSK had too tight a grip on the rights to things like reloading dies...

    Winchester Model 52-B

    Alrighty, so I finally got a chance to shoot the 52 in the daylight when I could actually see through the sights, shooting from prone with a front bag. Using the aperture and globe, I was able to shoot some pretty respectable groups using Win M-22 bulk ammo. The groups could probably tighten...

    Winchester Model 52-B

    mines about 14 with the scope according to my precision bathroom scale Well, heres the first target I shot with the 52, using Winchester M-22. It was nearly dark, and the peep was almost impossible to see thru, but some pretty good groups were had just leaning on the back of my truck at 25m...

    Winchester Model 52-B

    Well, the 52-B came home with me. It was a little rougher than I thought, but upon further inspection, it was all just surface grime and a little rust, nothing some CLP and elbow grease couldnt take care of. It didnt' come with a magazine, but only the single shot adapter. It seems the...

    Winchester Model 52-B

    Thanks for the insight fellas I think Im going to bite. I countered a bit once more (cant help myself, I love the haggle almost as much as the guns) but even if he refuses, Ill take it at the asking price.

    Winchester Model 52-B

    well I was wanting a heavy .308, but I figured that maybe this will scratch that itch without breaking the ammo budget and making me reload yet another caliber

    Winchester Model 52-B

    So ive been working on a trade deal recently and as it comes down to it, I want to know a bit more about this gun before I bite. A guy in my area has a Winchester Model 52-B heavy barrel. It has a diopter/globe sight, as well as a Unertl scope. The gun is set up for 3 or 4 position shooting...

    Colt's Government Model
