One more time. This is was a junk Marlin tube magazine 22 I ran across and decided to rescue. It had six bulges in it's long, skinny barrel and about six inches of the rifling was destroyed on the muzzle end. My original plan was to reline the barrel and refinish it's poor ol' stock and make it a truck gun. The lifter mechanism didn't work correctly anymore and my repair efforts failed so I decided to have some fun with the old thing. I relined the barrel, removed the tube magazine turing it into a single shot and then made a new stock. The bolt handle wouldn't clear a scope and had been welded back on. When I began to heat it to bend it the handle fell off! So I made a new handle, welded it in place and polished it up. Turned an aluminum knob for the bolt handle and whittled out an aluminum buttplate and trigger guard. Then I went a little crazy with the airbrush on the stock. It shot fairly well but I experimented with different muzzle devices I made and the brass blob you see on it made quite a difference.

UK shooting is limited in what we can have....but with the right paperwork .22rf semi-autos are ok (y)
Got a couple....
All currently for sale (apart from the Tippmann) so I can get a RPRf - prices in the UK are eye-watering :cry:20200702_142315.jpg20200702_145441.jpg20200702_134355.jpg20190806_170738.jpg

While in the local farm and ranch store I went by the gun counter. The selection there is picked pretty clean due to our current panic but I spotted a RPRR there for $379.00.

Cheapest I can find in the UK, £620 = $780.....
Just so you don't think it's a 'Ruger thing', all US firearms and accessories from all manufacturers has the same mark-up when imported into the UK.

    This logic makes more and more sense to me. I shoot centerfire maybe once a month and rimfire a couple times a week. Fledgling starlings are still pretty dumb at the shop and I’m sure I could see feathers fly better with a ZCo than my gen2 4.5-27. 😬

    So you now have a Vudoo costing about $8000?

    Does it shoot better than a factory $2800 rifle with a $1000 Vudoo PST Gen II?
    I think there are a lot of guys that build their .22 trainer to resemble their centerfire rifles, this is not a cheap sport!
    I have a Vudoo in an XLR Carbon chassis with a PST Gen1 that seems to shoot pretty well if you look at the 6x5's

    What do you mean factory rifle? As far as glass goes, does the ZCO make me shoot better or spot misses better? Probably not at 200yds and in. But it has a metric shit ton of adjustment and alpha tier glass.

    I built my vudoo to match my 6BR but tbh I have way more tied up in my 22. Granted my centerfire has a 27” heavy varmint barrel on it and my vudoo has a 18” proof so the weight and balance is quite different. But getting behind them is identical. Also I need to buy all the stuff I want now before I have kids 😂

    It sure beats knocking a little white ball with clubs all around a well manicured piece of terrain that would be more suited for a place to participate in long range precision rifle fire.

    We were "hitting", at least I was ;) , a little white ball ( ours is orange) this last Saturday at 200 and 210 yards. They're not useless.🤠

    I've turned those dimply little spheres into enjoyable targets. They are a lot of fun to hit with a .22LR or anything else.

    I got tired of chasing them all over the back stop so I devised a method of watching them bounce around but not have to go down range to put my back of place by constantly picking them up.

    Below is a target frame that I made. The golf ball is suspended by two lines that are tied through two holes at the top of the wood furring strips.

    I used mason line as it is tough. I get it in a dark color that blends in with the backstop. So, even with a scope, all you see is the orb suspended in space.

    To get the line through the ball, I drill a hole in it first. The hole needs to be large enough to push a crochet needle through.

    I push the needle through the hole and hook a line about 3-4 feet long in the middle. The line is pulled through the hole to the other side far enough to tie a double or triple knot on the looped end.

    This leaves two strands of line on the other side of the ball that you can tie to the frame.

    The ball will take a lot of punishment but will eventually need replaced. Nevertheless, it lasts a long time.

    These photos were taken at range where the ball is located 110 yards away. I like to watch the look on everyone's face after shooting the ball. However, I must say that I need to try the 200 yard challenge. On the other hand, I may try to one-up you with 300 yards😁

    At 300 yards a 1.68 inch golf ball is .535 MOA. So, I think I could give myself 1 out of 5 shots of hitting it with my 224V. I'll get back with you if that happens but first need to charge up the batteries for my camcorder because you skeptics won't take my word for it unless I get video.

    Ours is suspended.

    You need to try it on the clock with only one shot after you've shot the entire COF. ;)

    One guy in our group hits it consistently. On the clock. After clearing the COF. They started calling him Peter "Golf Ball". He's won the last two matches there.

    Are you using the .22LR at 200 yards?

    Also, what is your COF?

    Yes. So there’s two sides

    Left side COF:

    75yd: two little man targets with a 1.5” diamond in the middle with a flapper. Alternate left right 5 shots total

    100yd: KYL rack with I believe 9 plates

    125yd: piano keys and have to spin the black key in the center 360* for it to count as a point. 5 shots total

    150yds: ipsc target with3 sets of holes. Top hole are the the smallest and worth 3 points. Middle hole is worth 2 points and slightly larger. Bottom hole is the largest and worth 1 point. 5 shots total as well. Each hole size has a flapper that alternates sides when shot and to get the points it has to completely change sides.

    200yd: 5 geometric shapes one shot per shape

    200yd: golf ball and you have your last shot to hit it. Worth 5 points.

    Right side COF

    50yd: KYL rack 8 shots I believe

    100yd: Hostage rack. 4 hostages decreasing in size, then a ipsc with shoulder flapper. Shoot flapper twice but it has to flip for the points to count

    150yd: 5 geometric shapes, one shot apiece

    175&200yd: 4” or 6” plate at 175 And 200yd. One shot per plate alternating for 5 shots. (Holdover stage)

    210yds: 5 geometric shapes one shot apiece

    210yd: golf ball. Single shot and worth 5 points.

    30rds total per side.

    You forgot to add on the 100 yd hostage rack that if you hit a hostage instead of the aggressor, you lose 5 points.

    3:30 for prone stages and 4:30 for tripod and barrier stages. 7 seconds and 9 seconds/rnd average respectively. And two mag changes. One if you run 15 round mags but I have yet to see that except semi autos.

    It looks a lot like this only four and decreasing in size left to right.

    Off hand w/ a semi is extremely impressive. It's not like she was missing by a lot either. I couldn't do it like her. My off hand sucks. But give me a tripod. 🤠

    I got my first Ruger 10/22 over 25 years ago. It was a full house Volquartsen custom with McMillan stock and a nice (for the time) B&L variable power scope. I don't think I've shot it in 15 years, but it was still a solid half-MOA gun with match grade ammo then.

    These days, to my surprise, there are an incredibly large number of excellent custom shops specializing in the 10/22 format firearms and components.

    So, the 10/22 bug has bitten me again.

    Here are the first two 10/22 rifles I've assembled, very practical lightweight take-down clones that would not have been possible more than a few years ago. The only Ruger part is the 10-round rotary magazine. The take-down (aka "TD") receivers and barrels are by Tactical Solutions (aka "TS"). For the trigger groups, I went with Timney's 2.5 LB single stage with extended mag release. The simple elegance of the Magpul X-22 stock pulls this 4 LB creation together nicely.
    The TS SBX take-down barrel has a built in suppressor shroud that gives you an overall barrel length of 16+". It comes with a pretty nice fake suppressor, as seen with the FDE rig. The gray model has my own Thunder Beast .22 suppressor installed.
