    They painted the finish on those and most No 4s I've seen. It's a protective finish, just no
    very pretty. Although mine was black, not brown.Gibbs converted No 1s and No 4s by cutting off
    the barrels....

    You can get a heavy barrel M 77. Or a Savage, which is an excellent and less expensive rifle.
    All the 77s I've owned had trigger issues. I've got a Savage in .300 WM and it's very accurate.
    Which coun...

    I don't think there is any difference dimensionally in the 5.56 and .223 rounds. Reloading data
    is the same. At least for U.S. ammo.Chambers are a different matter. The 5.56 military rifles
    (NATO, but...

    They've killed a lot of deer around here. I don't think they're the best casual plinking rifle,
    as the receiver reportedly gets battered a bit from the bolt. Which, as I've heard, kinda
    affects them a...

    I've got a Pride Fowler scope on my 10-22. It's a "rimfire" scope that has what they call a
    "Rapid Reticle." It's got stadia lines below the crosshair, marked for a HV 22 ammo...a 50 yard
    zero, then 7...

    They wer emade in E. Europe and imported by Remington. My bud bought one in 30-06. Workmanship
    wasn't good and the rifle didn't shoot true at anything like 06 range.It's REALLY expensive to

    I had a Glenfield version, a good rifle. Not too much you can do for one except maybe put a
    scope on it. With a tubular magazine, re-stocking it won't add much performance. They're
    accurate enough, no...
