Re: Erma EM1 .22 carbine
I had the Iver Johnson version some years ago, and really loved that little rifle! Unfortunately, someone broke into my home and stole several rifles, that on among them.
I had paid $150 for it at the local gunshow. I had two issues with it.
1) Installing a scope requires tall rings, as the lower mounting causes ejected brass to bounce down into the action cauisng jams.
2) Had quirky performance til I put some washers onto the recoil spring unit to increase tension - easy fix. A new spring would be better.
The Sportsman's Guide sells an M1 Carbine styled stock set for the 10-22 - looks good, and I am considering going this route for a Faux-Carbine.
Also, Chiappa is coming out with an M1-22 Carbine - need to see some range reports before I plunk down money on one - their 1911 pistol has mixed reviews.
It's getting high time to play "Cowboys & Muslims". They will learn how Jihad can go both ways.......
