Rimfire Rigs

I need 3. . . You know thisBig Grin

I bought a 3rd .22 can for that one already. Don't go leaving me in the breeze.

Honestly, .22lr with a can in the woods is more fun than anyone should be allowed to have. It's like a dance hall romance without the nipple workout.

Well bratwurst, Mauser and Spaten to you assholes too.

Well then brother, keep on collecting. I found an extra mag which is miraculous. Cool

Finally went with a dedicated .22 upper.

This is a CMMG Evolution. Stainless model, with the forward assist.



It came with one CMMG magazine, and I bought 10 Black Dog Machine mags from a reseller. The BDM magazines immediately choked and would not feed more than 2-3 without ramming the round into the side of the chamber.

Turns out Gen-2 of their mag has crappy feed lips. One phone call later they shipped me 10 of their new Gen-4 mags with a return label for the crappy mags.

I just ran 300 rounds through with no hiccups. 250 CCI Mini-Mags, and 50 of cheap Federal bulk. Later I'll get a case of cheap bulk ammo (and a loader, these thing kill your thumb) and see how many rounds it takes to choke.

The CMMG mag never had a problem feeding, but was so tight in my LMT lower that it was a bitch to get out. Turns out there are some small tabs on it meant to be filed down slightly for a perfect fit. Now it feeds well and drops free.

One cool thing about the new BDM mags is that the feed lips are replaceable. They came with glass-filled plastic, and you can get a stainless set for $5.

Grey mag is CMMG, black is BDM. You can see how the feed lips are a single separate piece.

This guy has put several thousand through his.

The principle difference between his rig and mine is the forward-assist & mine is stainless.

Anyone who built one of these sweet rigs care to offer a suggestion on a threaded 10/22 bull barrel?

I did my build with a Hi Desert Dog 20" fast twist made for the Augila SSS. It's WAY too heavy.

I'm thinking that I will go fluted and shorter next time. Not sure that I'm going to get fast-twist either.

Aye, I want to know as well. That is awesome!

That is the shit. Can the forestock come completely off?

Sorry I missed the questions guys. I think that stock can be no longer purchased. The forestock cannot be removed, as it houses the cam-type lock for securing the barrel. It does fold all the way back to the grip, though.

It returns to zero very well, of course I only shoot it between 50-75 yards. I bought the rings before I knew about Larue, but they have worked really well too.

What I want now is the arrow kit from Larue. I think it'll be perfect for the quick barrel change capability of this rig.

How'd you guys like those suppressors? I've been thinking about putting a can on my 597, but I don't know much about the scene and what's possible. The idea of an integrated suppressor system, where you have a pencil bbl surrounded by baffles, sounds very intriguing.

Is accuracy good with and without, or do you have to use two different types of ammo to compensate for the suppressor being attached? Worth the money?

When reason fails...

I'm looking at getting and M&P 15-22. Because of local laws it is easier to purchase a M&P 15-22 pistol than the M&P 15-22 rifle.

Go figure, but semi auto rifles, even .22 ones, are EEEEVIIIIIIL.

There are currently no laws around putting stocks on pistols. We don't have any version of the SBR rules, and it isn't considered a rifle, just a pistol.

Is it possible to put a stock on an M&P 15-22 pistol? I realise there is no provision to put a buffer tube on the pistol version, I am not engineer enough to figure it out myself though. would it be possible? If so what's the easiest method?

Spikes dedicated .22 upper, older 4x ACOG. Shoots really well with federal gold match. Well over 2k rounds and no problems to speak of. Only complaint is that bolt does not always lock back on an empty mag.

======================= Life is hard. After all, it kills you. Pearl handled? They're ivory! Only a pimp in a cheap New Orleans whore house would own pearl handled pistols!

Here is one of my recent .22lr rifle builds. The Ruger 77/22 action is the only thing left that is from the original gun. It shoots less that half an inch at 50 and right around an inch at 100.



And this is another rifle I had for a while. An Anschutz 1710 in a Mark Pharr stock. This thing shot like a laser. I kind of wish I never sold that one...

I've recently bought a couple 22's when my 6 year old daughter decided she wanted to learn to shoot. I've had a 10/22 since I was a kid, but it's at my Dad's in CA.

I've taken her to the range with my ARs and a couple different handguns. She actually enjoys the AR, but its just too much gun for her and she needed something smaller. I picked up a few she could shoot then just bought her a Cricket for her birthday on the 11th.

Great rifle for the price. I don't have the larger bolt knob on mine. It's accurate enough though most of our shooting with it (my daughter mostly) is only 50 yards and in since she prefers the indoor range.

M&P 22 on the bottom

just picked up a marlin 795 stainless for 125 bucks! That I could not pass up.... Pictures to come.

I picked up a pink laminated stock 10-22 (wife and daufhter claim that color of gun will improve their desire to go shooting) yesterday morning, LNIB complete with soft case and a brick of 500LR .22s to go with my other heavily-mod'd scoped 10-22 which was given to me for free.

So all-in-all, pretty good deal on rimfires in my home, to-date....

That is a sexy rig!

What stock is that?

This thread has vexed me to the point that I went to Wally World last night and bought 2 Rem. 597's, $404 plus tax. How can you go wrong for that.

My kids have been bugging me for their own .22 for a while anyway.

These will also give me a platform to try my hand at a paint job since I can't work up the balls to do it to my AR.

My daughter, LSU fan like her daddy, has requested purple and gold tiger stripes.
You'll like the 597! They are solid shooters, but if you're going to paint their plastic stocks, give the things an extra-good wipe down with naptha or the like before and after presanding. The stocks seem to have a "natural" anti-seize in them so they come out of the moulds easier. When I painted my stock, I didn't note this and the paint came off in sheets!

Great rifle, though. Accurate as the day is long, and sized for grown-ups!

When reason fails...

The kids (son 8, daughter 12) and I went to the range yesterday to shoot their 597's for the first time. I'm very impressed. As you said, very accurate and repeatable for a $200 autoloader. After I zeroed them in they were both wearing out the 1" bull on a paper plate at 25yrds. After about a half an hour of that they got board and asked to move to 50yrds. What I loved to watch was to see them figure out things on their own and share with each other what's working best.

I figured today would be arts and crafts day and we'd be paining rifles but they both want to go back to the range. Thanks for the tip on prep. I had intended to use some break cleaner to make sure it was oil free. I'll be extra diligent now.

I'll post some pictures when I get the chance.
Would a light run-over with a fine sandpaper work?

I've handled several 597s and noted the stocks were pretty 'slick'.

I guess I should post my latest completed rimfire rifle, a Remington 504. I basically bought a squirrel rifle and scrapped everything but the action. The barrel is a Lilja "target taper", 4 groove, and Eley Match chamber. Headspaced to .043". The stock is a factory 504T stock that i got from Numrich. I got the trigger down to a couple of ounces, but it was just too light, so I adjusted it to one pound for now. This rifle shoots pretty damn well with Eley black box. It holds groups under an inch at 100 all day, but I think it can do better with a bedding job. This is the only picture I have of it right now, but I'll get more if I don't sell it soon.
