    22rf specialist gunsmith in AZ???

    I've seen in posts that working on a rimfire has some pitfalls that quite a few gunsmiths can fall into that don't understand rimfires so I'm looking for someone I don't have to go through hassles with. I might buy an old 40x (if I can get it cheap enough) that either has a headspace issue...

    Athlon FFP Helos BTR G2 2-12x42 in hand!

    What a COOL little scope!!! Just some photos for tonight which unfortunately include my DIRTY fingerprints (photos of the rifle) 🤷‍♂️, lol, sorry about that. Obviously not a pro photographer, right! But at least you have some scale to see and how the scope looks on my Vulcan 2 30 caliber PCP...

    Optics SOLD FFP S&B PM2 5-25x56 with DT turrets and H59 mil reticle

    I've had it since new when I bought it about 6 years ago. It never needed to be sent back because it's been a perfect scope all these years. It has very few tiny scratches and is in great shape. I've won long range centerfire Field Course matches, 22rf tactical matches, and Field Target air...

    Rifle Scopes March FX 5-42x56, any regrets?

    Just about ready to order one! BUT, is there anything that you didn't anticipate that you wouldn't like, or basically were turned off by, once you used it for a while? FYI, half my reason for buying it is it has 10Y close focus and I understand that the DOF won't be as deep as most other...

    I've been wanting to try one of these ever since they came out, I was looking for 30x and another aspect, which concerns illumination which I cover below.

    In a AR, in what order of priority do I troubleshoot problems?

    Let's discuss 350 Legend

    Over at my friends shooting range, and he's thumping steel with his 30 carbine, my other friend is wacking steel hard with 7.62x39, and my pesky 5.7x28 seemed anemic. It got me thinking I'd like me some kind of thumper. Hmm what to get??? I know what you're thinking, why not just shoot my 223...
