That's one of those bits of information that I think I forgot that I knew it. :o So I tried fitting a dime and it didn't fit.... so much for shopping for a gun with a threaded barrel to choke down.

I guess i'll have to buy another gun. The barrel isn't threaded for a choke and there is no markings indicating the size of shell so I guess the only size shell it will take is 2&3/4.

Stevens 520

I have an old 520 with what I think is a 30 inch barrel -- I'm not sure where to measure... from the firing pin out?

I am shooting 40 yards at a stationary target about 1&1/2 inches wide by 6...

While it is drying, gun in or out of the holster?

I have always used pocket holsters and this is my first leather belt holster. For the price of it, I am hoping it last for a good amount of time.

I had 2 of them. Never trust it to shoot anything more threatening than a paper target. And don't buy a used one without a written guarantee.

Swap Magazines

I thought I heard on one of the gun shows I watch that a magazine from a Ruger SR9 will work in a Ruger SR9C.

Anyone know if that is correct?

The O.P. here, it looks like the only new choice is bolt action. I vaguely remember problems with the Ruger semi auto's but I was surprised that Marlin, Savage and Ruger don't have a lever action.

How far could an average shooter reliably shoot a 2 inch ring with a scoped rifle?

Was the hammer back when you re-assembled it? I just looked at my manual and it does not go deep enough to get to the safety or trigger. The best I can do is a schematic for the 622 and it's clones.

Stevens 520

Talk about a long gun, this thing has a 30 inch barrel with a 5 + 1 magazine. And that is about all I know about it. Sadly, I inheirited it from my father just about a year ago. I will never let it...
