    Good day folks..........In the past, I have completed several 10/22 builds, all with different
    end product depending upon the desired result. Now I want to build one from scratch with the
    only part wi...

    I've owned an SR22 for awhile and I have no significant issues with the function with the
    exception of an intermittent failure to feed with one of the magazines. That's a project for
    another day.My qu...

    My 1893 is in 32-40. I bought it about 1965 in Vermont. Interesting point here......when I

    Thanks fellas for all the input. The common denominator of all the suggestions was to scrub
    alot between each group with a good copper solvent and new brush. Well, it must have worked.

    I have recently purchased a new Weatherby Vanguard in .223. A friend asked if I was going to
    break-in the barrel. Honestly, I didn't give it much thought, although I have read articles on
    the subject ...
