    "HEADSPACE" and the Ruger RPR

    I think old timers disease might be kicking in but I don't remember reading about the "real" science and headspace in the RPR. I've read about folks pulling their aftermarket barrels to apply shims and this is where my question comes in and the following is based on assumptions-hell, I don't...

    Ruger Precision Rimfire QC-old versus new

    I've shot it around 300 times since then and the bolt cycles as it should-smooth but tight. If the bolt is "easy" to cycle, it's not going to have a tight lockup on this particular rifle... The headspacing is accomplished by the back of the bolt handle impacting the back of the channel cut in...

    Ruger Precision Rimfire QC-old versus new

    I picked up a new RPR this last December and wanting to learn all the idiosyncrasies of my new toy, I read all 30 pages of the RPR thread-it really is a treasure trove of info for a new owner. I disassembled the rifle and during the cleanup process it became apparent that there has been a...

    Ruger Precision Rimfire

    I mentioned shooting steel with the Ruger and that was a hoot. We have steel set up at 325 yards and even though the weather wasn't perfect, I wanted to see how the scope would range at that distance. Scope did great but my dope was off-I was hitting like 5 MOA low. Winds were basically from my...

    Ruger Precision Rimfire

    Picked up a new RPR 22 the last week of December 2019 and I LOVE IT! Read here about the brown gunk in the barrel so after one pass with some Bore Tech rimfire solvent on a bore brush and a clean patch to dry it, went straight to my Bore Brite. Hit the chamber and leade about 30 strokes and the...

    Question about 9mm "Glock mag" AR lowers

    I have a Stag left hand 9mm AR that is a lot of fun to shoot. I love fiddlin' with stuff and installed a bunch of Blitzkrieg goodies in it-it's 100% reliable even with some wimpy ass loads like 3.2 gr Clays with a 115 gr bullet and 3.1 gr Sport Pistol and 147 gr bullets. Also added a CMC trigger...

    GAMER CHANGER TESLONG BORE SCOPE!!! -- FINALLY A QUALITY REASONABLY PRICED BORE SCOPE!

    I'm actually glad I spent the time working on the bore and finishing it up with a good run of Bore Bright-a patch goes through the barrels like it has grease on them . I was actually working on two rifles at the same time and they basically looked the same, a 224 Valkyrie I built on a trued...

    GAMER CHANGER TESLONG BORE SCOPE!!! -- FINALLY A QUALITY REASONABLY PRICED BORE SCOPE!

    Actually, when I hooked the unit up with the tip for the first time the image was terrible. I looked closely at the tip and there was no "mirror" attached to it. I realized that other pictures that were posted showed excellent imagery and I finally decided that the mirror had not been attached...

    GAMER CHANGER TESLONG BORE SCOPE!!! -- FINALLY A QUALITY REASONABLY PRICED BORE SCOPE!

    Well, it looks like part of my issue was caused by operator headspace which is defined as a total lack of cranial matter between the ears. I was using the "straight down the bore" view to check the barrel and THEN I put on the angle view tip and saw something totally different. The difference...

    Yeah you're right of course. It's my OCD that kept me alive during my aviation career, rearing its ugly head again! :cool:

    Where can you find Kroil or is it an "order" item only? I can order it everywhere-just wondering if it's possible to find locally-what kind of business would sell it?
