.22 long rifle

  1. Rifle Forum
    I looked at the previous threads and posts and couldn't find anything re: the Rem 597 in .22 LR. I spotted one new of these with a factory scope for $210. Not sure about fit and function, but I need a .22 rifle for all the ammo I've stockpiled. Feels nice, but does it work? Opinions and...

    Ive recently been on the look out for a new .22 auto loading pistol. I just recently had my Walther P22 blow up on me, so i'm looking for a solid pistol. Some options ive been looking into was the Sig 1911-22 and the GSG 1911-22, BOTH have had similar issues with the Zinc Aluminum slide...

    Hello everyone. I am currently looking for a nice .22 lr pistol for recreation and the ruger and browning seem to be the big names in this category. I have had the oppertunity to handle and shoot both albeit not very much. The pistols seemed to handle just fine and I could not discern any...

    What can you hunt with a .22 cal? I can't imagine that you can take a deer down with a .22 cal unless you have excellent marksmanship.

    Hello all, Looking to purchase and mod my first 10/22 as a light weight rifle I can EDC (when legal of course). Want to have an all around rifle, no 5.56 or 308 needed, that I can grab and go when Im on the go (or SHTF and Im at the grocery store/work) Wondering first of all if going with the...

    First of all, until now I hadn't ever been a huge fan of .22 rounds or firearms. But, I'm beginning to see the usefulness, and whenever something has true use value, and practicality, I like/appreciate it. That said, I would like to know if any of you can list a few or more side arms (handguns)...

    I bought a 10 22 a few weeks ago and mounted a middle of the road 4X32 scope on it that I had. I sighted it in last week and while the gun is a hoot to shoot the trigger in my opinion is really stiff. I'm thinking of installing a Volquartsen replacement hammer to improve the trigger feel. Has...

    So I decided a week ago that my Henry Youth .22 Lever Action was a bit small and i'd rather put it back for my son(s) someday since my father bought it for me. It came down to the obvious two choices; Ruger 10/22 and Marlin Model 60. My brother has owned several 10/22's and loves them. I...

    First I want to say thank you to all here in the gun/prepardness section. I've been reading, buying, trying, using, failing, failing aging, then finally figuring it out, I even did a 4 hr hike up a mountain with a 30lb pack just to see.... (woulda been heavier but I just had facial...

    Hey everyone, After a close analysis, I have decided to get a Marlin Model 60 as my first .22LR. I now have to decide, though, which Model 60 to get. If anyone can answer some of the following questions, I would greatly appreciate it. I have heard that the older rifles had an 18 round tube...

    Welp, I finally went and did it. I've wanted a 10/22 for many years. Yesterday, I bought a new one. I bought the carbine. It was twice the price I could have paid 25 years ago. I can't clean it from the breech, which has always been one reason I never got one. The trigger is pretty bad, so I...

    I really dont have a defensive rifle, all of them are for hunting most are bolt action or single shot. the two semi auto higher caliber rifles i do have have mounted scopes, so thats a no go for home defense( I live in an urban area). however i do have a ruger 10/22, Do you think that this could...

    My son and I were doing some target shooting last summer. We got out a bottle of water, I put some water in the bottom so the bottle would stand straight up even when shot. My son then took the Ruger 22 and fired off a few rounds at the make shift rabbit. Well, with my son shooting the rabbit...
