    I just acquired another new H&R M12 (Palma sights). This makes my third one. Don't know what there is about these rifles, but they sure appeal to me. They don't shoot too bad, either.

    :D :D :D

    This leads me to believe that Jay has all of them.

    I'm afraid Jay doesn't have all of them, but now I have the one I've been looking for. I found this last one on a forum, "for sale" about 15 minutes after the gent posted it. Sounded too good to be true..... still sealed, with Palma sights still sealed, for a very reasonable (to me) price. He didn't know there were two different types of sights, and after he asked, I told him the respective values of the sights, and that his price was VERY reasonable. His response is below.....

    "Jay,

    Thanks for your honesty. If you want it, it's yours, and the price is still $XXX.XX. Do you want me to open it up and make sure it's a Palma?"

    SO I BOUGHT IT !!! :) :) :D (one grin for each M12, big grin for this last one)

    Now I have on each of the original versions, and with the right motivation, I could be moved to sell one..........;)

    wow, nice

    Yeah after shooting a scoped gun I can't stand 3 dot sights, nor do I think I should have to. I'd really love some peep sights on a rifle someday, good for hunting closer range critters in the woods. I got my scope in for 50 yards, and it's not exactly a quick click elevation change.

    Unfotunately
    1) A nice set of Redfields run up there at least 50$
    2) I'd have to custom smith something to put them on my gun.



    Hey Jay will you take 75$ for a CM12? :D

    Serously, though. Think of the balance as a donation to the fund....

    The whole gun!!!

    Haha...


    You can use a rear peep sight with a regular front sight, right? Or not?

    Hey I'd put up to 40 bucks towards a sight (rear if it works on my Romanian w/o a new front on) if you had it, but no biggy. Someday...*sigh*


    Gotta get me a shorter range squirrel gun is all, scopes are great for longer distance varmints but impractical in dense woods where you find most of them (minus my backyard where there are tons, but I don't think the neighbors would appreciate the noise or any stray bullets in their siding). If only I was 21 (Late August), I'd get a pistol already. Ruger MKII in my local gunshop, target barrel for 365$. Dang!!!

    Jay lemme know if you got any extra peeps sittin around that you don't want man! You're a fellow board member so I trust ya and would pay some extra cash for nice Redfields if you got em.


    So how do the front sights work with these things? It'd be great if I could use just a rear.


    Thanks for the help, nice collection of mossies and H&rs Jay!

    I want them all.

    peep sights

    Hey z,

    I don't have any extra peep sights around. search for peep sight on e-bay and the auction sites.They pop up now and then.

    With my eyes, I have to have either the peep sights or a scope.

    You can use a peep with a reg front sight as long as the top of the front sight, and the middle of the elevation adjustment on the peep sight are parallel to the centerline of the bore. There's a fudge factor there, but I wouldn't want to be too far off.

    Jay :)

    cool

    Thanks Jay.

    And yeah I'll keep a look out, though I can dial my scope down to 3 power and hit the critters well enough most days.


    And it's oh so satisfying shooting a nice group from 50 yards with a scoped rifle.

    Come to think of it, you might try a red dot scope. They're short, inexpensive, and target aquisition is much faster than a conventional scope.

    I haven't used one.........hearsay only.. :)


    "nice groups"..........put something sweet on the target and shoot flies !

    I don't know anything about the Romanian. Is the receiver grooved for a scope?


    edit....about the Palma on e-bay......

    fixed shipping :mad:
    reserve :mad:
    wear marks on the sight indicate it's not new :mad:

    satisfaction guarantee? significantly absent.....:rolleyes:

    any questions?
