Re: What's your favorite .22 rifle ??
Welcome, Mr Hughes! First post, and already into the meat of the matter!
You will find this an opinianated forum, and an especially opinionated thread!
Rimfire shooters are a resource separate from the real world, as we build and chamber, or rechamber, rifles around ammo we cannot change!
My preference is for single shot, falling block, rifles, because I like the lines and feel of them; most would comment that my barrels are too heavy, and the weight too far forward, up until the time they shoot them, and one ofour club rules involves the right of any shooter, to shoot any rifle, in competition.
I have been beaten, by my own gun, on more than one occasion! Even, with my own ammo! But, I came to fish, not necessarily,to catch!
Half the rifles I shoot against are my creations, And all were done with pride; no secrets, the best stuff going, at the time; I would gladly compete, with any of them.
It boils down to the workman, not the tool!
