    Hart and Shilen offer stock match barrels with Brownell's and others. Make sure you get the
    twist you want for the bullet you will shoot. Most 30 BR rifles are using 14 to 18 twist
    barrels. Figure yar...

    depending on what pull weight you desire, the original trigger can work. The 77 triggers can be
    worked into the oz's by the right one. Can be trashed by the wrong one. Most target rifles are
    built on ...

    Sounds like the bolt travel is very close to cocking when fired and not catching the hammer.
    The trigger assembly pins might be bent. Replace them is so and it might be the fix. A fellow
    gunsmith had ...

    I have removed the accu lever on several of these triggers. Customer request this and it can be

    Brings back memories, My old friend and I would use bench guns to shoot flys at 100 yards. Put
    jelly on the target and wait for the flys. After several at our club watched this, we made a
    fly target f...

    Check out JBM ballistics and you can get your answers. I played with yellow jacket bullets and
    found that yardage will shock you. In a freash disked field the bullets show. I got much less
    yardage tha...

    Building custom rifles, gets a 10-22 request for a rebarrel. One customer had a gunsmith
    install an unturned blank barrel on his action. Claim it was for benchrest shooting. at 28
    inches it shot worse...

    I can speak for the Noselr BT bullets. Most hunters use a bullet heavier than needed. I know of
    several hundred Deer dropped with Nosler BT bullets. Have built several rifles and my test
    loads are wit...

    Remove the pin and spring, chuck in lathe. The stop behind the pin taper is solid. Turn the
    amount you need off. Good luck

  • Posted in thread: Does anyone recognize this .22 rifle? on 04-02-2010 at 04:49 PM
    I posted the make and model for the rifle pictured. If I am wrong, I accept it. In 35 years of
    gunsmithing I have never seen this stock and action design made by Remington or any other Co.
