Looking at this website literally made me go buy this gun! haha I loved the thought of spending a day at the range while barely spending any money.

Savage Mark II .22LR, sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures.

Congrats, many thousands of happy shots with your baby.

Have old .22 semi-autos eg Ruger 10/22 (181 series), Remington 522, Browning and a Gevarm. Addicted to 22s in general.

Maybe the one I picked up was so tight and choppy because it was stainless ??
I do notice that with bolt action rifles blued ones have smoother operating bolts than stainless ones. Anyone else find this true or am I just nuts ??

No, you could still be nuts, but I think you are right-on about the stainless!

I noticed that bare stainless seems to gall more than blued or chrome plated steel, which makes sense. My Ruger Red Label was galling in the pivot, regular gun oil, even with teflon didn't help much. Then an oldtimer put me onto this stuff.

Birchwood Casey Cleaning Supplies bc rig stainless steel lube 1.5oz t - www.Outdoor-Sports-Store.com

It cured my problem. I like it for my 1911 stainless slides too, just about any contact point in stainless.

Good Call! Ken

I guess I better take my Lithium now !
The companies could probably polish the bolt on them to make them more slick, instead of a brushed stainless bolt a hi-gloss one .
What do you think ? {And yes I know you still think im nuts !!}

I think they should too. Its probably a cost thing. Ideally they would high polish the bolt and the inside of the receiver. Bet it would make a big difference.

FYI, I don't think you should be ingesting all that LITHIUM GREASE. But hey, if it helps?? Ken

Thanks I appreciate it. I wanted to add the bipod because I want to be able to practice my marksmanship and from what I read a bipod is a good aid.
