    Noticed the 6-20 centerpoint in my local Walmart too. FWIW, bought the 4-16x40 centerpoint a
    few months after my Wal mart began stocking it. Guess that was around 7 years ago. Still have
    it and it fun...

    Have shot 4 or 5 hundred of the S&B large rifle in around 5 different cartridges. I've no
    problems with them.

    Bought a couple of 20 rd boxes of Norma USA 55 gr FMJ ammo at a Cabelas in Houston for $8 a

    I've tried mineral spirits in the past for cleaning a gun stock....was disappointed in it. Mind
    you, I was working on old military surplus military rifle stocks. Oh, there was some benefit to
    using it...

    While I own a few 7x57 rifles that I enjoy shooting at range, none are an A.I 7x57. Some of my
    7x57 are built on a modern commercial action and some are on small ring mauser actions. Its my
    opinion, p...

    At range I'm a member, a fellow shooter who knew I had a number of various military rifles,
    both still original condition and sporterized, asked me if I'd be interested in coming by his
    home to see if...

    FWIW, two comments. First, early Mausers, perhaps their 1891 or 93s, had a heat treatment
    problem. Mauser discovered it early and condemned the rifles....never sold. Somewhere, when
    reading a post abo...

    Last year, wife and I spent several days in Copenhagen Denmark seeing the sights. One of places
    visited was the Tivoli Gardens amusement park and when walking around in it we stopped to look
    at a two ...

    Chuckle, 2 years or so ago, a brand of scope called Nitrex was discontinued by its parent
    company and Natchez Shooter Supply handled the sell of the Nitrex inventory. The Nitrex TR2
    models were Weaver...

    Guess I've owned several super slams for 3-4 years now, the 3-15 and a couple of the 5-20s.
    They do have some nice optics, quite clear and bright and I've always trusted their
    windage/elevation adjust...
