What the heck ever happened to Australia producing some of the world's best riflemen?

Oh don't get me wrong we are.. We not only hit our target; but we kill it then dress inappropriately at it's funeral

The prices here for everything gun-related suck, this only adds to the reasons why Zhuk and I get so jealous of you guys..

I bought my wife a MKII FV in 17M2 and my oldest grandson a MKII FVT. Both had the plastic stocks and the drop is wrong for a scope or the target sights. I replaced the stock on my wifes rifle and I need to get my hands on the boys rifle to do his stock. Meanwhile his stock has an add on cheek piece. The savage rifles are very accurate. Boyd's makes stocks for the Savage MKII/93E that are reasonable. I bought unfinished as I had to shorten the stock for my wife. Right now the BSA 4x16x40 AO scope is avaliable from SWFA for $50+ship and the Sweet 22 for $40+ ship. Changing the stock requires a new trigger guard and screws available from savage. You could use an add on cheek piece or you could just order a MKII BVT and be done with it. The 17M2 or the target confiuration was not available in the BVT. With the expensive target ammo the BVT will shoot under 1/4" at 50 yds. That is not to say the shooter can, at least not this shooter anymore. Most scopes for 22LR are parallaxed at 50 yds or have an adjustable objective lens. Most rifle scopes are parallaxed at 100 yds.

I bought a Marlin 780 (Western Auto Revelation) in 1966 for $39 when I was 12 years old. It has been a wonderful rifle. I've shot thousands of rounds through it over the years with no problems at all.

Default ok

ok (so my uncle tells me) after all the mumbo jumbo to import it would cost to much to be worth getting. so now after the past montrh or so ive managed to get nearly $800 throo work and odd jobs around the street. so im looking into buying a savage edge .223 (second hand) in excellent condition for $300. and the only thing wrong with it i could find was a small scratch under the barrel at the forend of the stock.
