.hey i own several 22,s but i will have to say this with factory fed ammo
this Remington 512 15 shot tube fed,made in 1943 is the best open sight
tack driver i ever eased the trigger on,its a shooter..im waiting on a few
replys on this topic thanks...
I wish I had it; it was my granddad's Winchester, not sure what model (probably a 67). So accurate and easy to shoot for a young boy (first time I shot it my Dad had to rest it on a milk can for me). Ahhh the memories.
My first gun was a Remington 572 Fieldmaster that my dad bought for me nearly 40 years ago, and in my heart that will always be the best shooting gun. Some guns may handle better, shoot faster, or be more accurate, but does that even matter when we are talking favorites?
Guys hate it when I bring the remington 511-x to the range. It will shoot with any factory rifle out there today. It has a 6-18x40mm BSA scope on it. You cna not beat an old remmy or mossy. My dad has 2 dozen of the remmys and is getting to 2+dozen on the old mossbergs.
He just sent me a 513T with a Heavy Barrel on it. I have some work to do to it before it starts to take trips to the Rifle Range. I need to get some taller rings to mount my Weaver Kt-15 15x40m scope on it. The biggest problem right now is the barrel he bought from numrich for it has a sloppy chamber. .003" over sized, I need to send it back to get a replacement for it.
X2 on the Remington 512 Sportmaster, bolt action with a tube feed. My grandfather gave it to me for Christmas in 1980. I was 10. I have shot more rounds than I can count through it and it is one amazing shooter. I was stationed in Alaska and had my dad ship it up to me in 91. I bragged to my wife about it's accuracy. She had heard that boast from many people about their guns over the years and figured my boast was the same. After shooting it, when the topic comes up she brags on it for me..
Anshutz with Leupold 4X on top shoots great. Also the old Ruger 10/22 is mighty good. Even my grandad's old Ruger MK I pistol still shoots very accurately. That Anshutz, tho, will take out a sparrow's eye at 40 yds. Once drove a nickle into a White Pine with it at 60 yds. As a matter of fact, that was the very first time I ever shot it. I didn't even shoot it a 2nd time for fear I would miss and be exposed. It did go home with me and the plugged nickle that night tho. Been my 16 yr old son's ever since.
