On my henry i put one of those Marbles Bullseye sights on it. It replaces the rear sight.. On the front i put a Hiviz sight. Kind of wish i would have not got the Magnum. Think i would shoot it more. Anybody want to trade?;)
Darn Joe, I have the H001T in LR and wish I had the 22 Mag. 馃 Between my Win 1906 and Browning Trombone I have enough LR鈥檚 and I enjoy the added oomf if the WMR. Also be nice having a rifle to match looks wise with my Single Six.

Yea it does light up my steel targets at the range. I bought it to use on coyotes during the winter. Sometimes i climb up in my deer stand to pop off annoying red squirrels that bother me during deer season and every once in a while i see a coyote come by, so i figured the .22 mag might put more of a dent in them than a ,22 LR. Anyway the times i have taken it out i haven't got a chance at one. Don't even know if it would knock one down. Shots would be around 20 to 40 yds. If i ever traded it i'd only do it for another goldenboy in LR.

Well, I stopped to pick up another dovetail scope ring set today on the way to a band competition out of town. To my surprise, they're a little different height than the other sets I had and they work. That's another thing about these dovetail rings; I can't find ANY of them that state their centerline height on the packages. :rolleyes: I guess my dovetail to picatinny adapter will get used somewhere else. I still don't have the hammer "expander" in hand yet, but I don't need it. I might try to shoot a little later in the day and see how accurate it's printing. I shot it with open sights at 25 yards earlier in the day and it was shooting great for my poor off-handed shooting.

Well, here are the preliminary results. I used some ammo that I've had forever, but have never used. I bought 500 of them probably 10 years ago and haven't touched them. Pricey stuff, but I'm not sure how good it is... :unsure:

I truly don't understand this 50 yard 5-shot group. It might have been me, but I don't know. 3 of them are touching, so... I ran out of time before having to go help my mom look for her a new clothes dryer, so these were my final 5 at 50 yards.

The sticky target fell on the last shot that was high. It would be a dang odd coincidence, but I wonder if I might could have nicked the top corner as it was falling. Probably not, but still... I believe this to be ammo velocity inconsistency, but it could have just been me. 3 shots were within 0.28" of each other center-to-center. Maybe I can improve with more shooting and different ammo. I have some Eley Club coming in tomorrow. Maybe I'll try it.

I shot some Eley Club rounds and the group was still wild. Two were touching, but 3 were all around. The group was 1.27", or 1.05" center-to-center. After looking at a couple of rounds that I chambered, but didn't fire, I think it's the feed ramp or lifter causing damage to the nose of the rounds. It's scraping the nose of some of them and I think that's generating the flyers. I might take it apart and see if some surfaces can be smoothed up and polished a bit. I did mention that I can't leave anything alone, right?

I got brave and took it apart tonight to polish up the lifter and feed ramp area. I didn't do a great polishing job, but I slicked it up a bit. I fired 5 rounds through it into my backstop after dark, so I don't know anything about accuracy yet. It cycled perfectly though.

The front of the feed ramp is where it looks to have been a bit rough. I think I might have smoothed it out a bit. Time will tell.

You have more guts than I do.
Or, I'm just a little stupid. One or the other... :ROFLMAO:

I also just cycled 5 rounds through without firing them, inspecting them before and after. I saw none of the nick marks that I was seeing while shooting the other day. Maybe I got it smoothed out?
