Hmmm. I have a Ruger 77/22 in LR. I want another rifle in 2 mag. I was thinking about a Savage 93, but i just looked at Bowning's site, and watched a few you-tube vids. Nice gun. Not sure if I can afford the cost, but.....
Where are the T-Bolts made?

Also, my 77/22 seems plenty accurate. My biggest problem with accuracy is the scope is off, which is my fault.

$10k for a rimfire. I am laughing in your face. What are you smoking there my good man? That is in the top 5 of dumb things I have seen people say on here.

I can get Suhl 150 $1600 on benchrest central. That is a worked over suhl 150 in a McMillan benchrest stock. Rimfire Rifles : Suhl 150

You can get Time Precision rimfires over there for $2100 Rimfire Rifles : Gorham Time Precision RB/LP

Do you work for that idiot at Gunsmoke guns in CO? Him and his $15k revolvers.

You can get the Weatherby now in .17 & .22 for around $750.00 if you are willing to go $50.00 extra. I have all three of the Ruger 77/xx's and they all shoot fine with the right ammo. When I test any rimfire .22 that I am thinking of buying I will try at least 5 different brands of ammo beginning with Eley Match standard velocity and a few other standard velocity brands. This will most likely give you a good baseline for the best accuracy for the rifle. Then I move to high velocity and then to the bargin basement. If it shoots well for you then you have got a rifle that will last the rest of your life.

Good Shooten!

Terry

Since your knowledge of rifles seems to be endless dair I say that their are double rifles in .22 calibre that start at 5K and go up quickly pasted 10k. These rifles can be taken into the field and hunted with. And yes you can buy a bench rest .22 for under 2K although I personally would not buy one used. After talking to one or two of the custom bench rest builders I think that a starting price of around $2,500.00 is closer to the mark. I can't think of why you would want to buy someone elses rifle unless you know the shooter well. Why buy someone elses problem?

As far a Gunsmoke is conserned its a TV show just like Sons of Guns. If you enjoy TV its fun to watch. As far as $15k for a collector gun depending on the gun that could be considered low. Go to Rock Island Auction and try guns that make 15k very, very low.

PS: Are you a bench rest shooter? If yes what equipment do you use? Rifle, ammo, rest? Also when you call someone dumb be very carefull that your know looking into the mirror as their is always someone else who can put you to shame.

Have Fun & Good Shooting

Terry

CZ 455 is what they are currently selling and yes, I've heard good things as well but most people who rave about them have the older 452 model. Which is better ? I have no idea ?

I have an entire collection of Remington 504's and 541's. Both of these models shoot well right out of the box and if kept in good condition make a fair investment. The problem today is that people have found this out and they are drying up quickly as well as the prices going up. I check Guns Americia every night and have not see either model for about a month. Generally if I find a good one I will purchase it for another customer. The Ruger 10/22 can be anything you want it to be. I currently have one that i built for my son that shoots under 1/2" at 75 yards with just about anything i feed it. The second is a custom Volquartsen that i purchased new at a gun show in Virginia. Its totally built and had a retail price of over $1300.00. With standard velocity target ammo it will constantly shoot 1/4" and less at 50 years. ( i think my years are showing ).

Just my 2 cents on the savage rifles. First i don't own one. I have helped two friends with both the .22 lr versions and the .308 customs. Both of these rifles shoot well and the .308 shoots exceptionaly well for a totally stock gun. The .22 will hold its own with anything under $800.00 retail.

Good Luck & good shooting

terry

I forgot to mention one other gun that is also a great shooter and that is the mossburg 144LS. Out of production for decades they can be purchased at gun shows for under $500.00 complete with target sights. I shoot my Marksman rifle badge with this rifle and like all things stupid i sold to get something else. Bad mistake. Anyhow with a scope and the right ammo it will give you a lifetime of accurate shooting.

Keepen shooten

terry
