    Thanx Trez. I found some favorable posts over at midway & ended up buying their eyelets & a set
    of Parkerized swivels. The Parkerized matches the finish on the metal on my creedmoorsorts M1
    sling & fo...

    Can anyone tell me much about Parkerized rifle sling swivels? I got a Creedmoor 1 1/4" cotton
    GI military web sling the other day & it has a grayish kind of rough finish to its metal parts.
    I'm guessi...

    Thanks wmille01. I've thought about that approach as well. I've seen write-ups on some pretty
    good bag set-ups that come close to br accuracy. Also, have thought about building something
    out of wood (...

    Ah oh! I lied big x on that thread. Just took 'er out o' the cabinet & it's not an 80, it's an
    81DL-S-L-LR. It's not grooved--it has 4 holes drilled/tapped off to the side @ about the 10:00
    position. ...

    May get either a Hart or Sinclair std flat-top br for shooting non-competitively my .22s -
    30-06 sporters. I'm thinking the narrow owl ear front bags would be more for a br w. windage
    adjustment--am I...

    I'm a bit of a woodworker & thinking about building a portable, yet fairly hvy adjustable
    benchrest (the rest, not the bench). I figure maybe putting a nice commercial sandbag like a
    Protektor atop it...

    I see lots of black cotton GI Web Slings out there, but not sure of the quality. Anyone have
    one they can recomend that'll I'll use to share on a couple of .22s?

    Gotta check out Pride-Fowler Rapid-Reticle. About $300.

  • Posted in thread: what scope to choose? on 05-28-2011 at 05:28 AM
    If $ isn't an issue & you want long range you gotta look at the Pride-Fowler Rapid Reticle for
    $300. It has crosshairs every 20 yards or so past 50 or 60 yds. out to 200 yds. Or, if you want
    to go to ...

    I remember my mother buying dad's (now mine) 81DL new @ Montgomery Ward in 1957. No tiger wood
    & has the bullseye in buttstock. Trigger guard is not looped like yours, just semi-circular.
    Drilled & ta...
