I have a military background and even though my active service time was a long, long time ago, it has influenced my shooting. As long as I am physically able to shoot offhand and from field positions, I will continue doing that and use iron sights.

In 1956 the German army bought rimfire trainers and the Anschutz trainer was adopted as the G33. It is based on the famed 54 action that Walther GEHMANN had developed for Anschutz. I had shot it in the barracks as a child and later as a soldier and own a few now. That love affair spans five decades.

Got out with my trainer a little bit Sunday, CMP Kimber Model 82G. Just ran through some crappy ammo I had to dispose of so no real accuracy work. I've done some work to clean up the trigger pull on this a few years ago, diamond honed the engagements and lightened it up. Shoots great and is always a blast to play with. I even shot a NRL22 match with it a couple years ago, was at a disadvantage against the competition since it is a single shot but was impressed how well it did.

    This guy is only making a certain amount of match trigger groups for the Kimber 82C government.

    I was doing some research for a friend and his Kimber 82G and from what I discovered, if I had an 82G, I would probably give this trigger a try.

    Here's a review of the trigger:

    DayAtTheRange dude seems like a really cool guy. I've had some conversations over on RFC with him, would like to go to the range with him eventually.

    I'll check these out! I'm pretty happy with the trigger in this one but we also have one set up with peep sights that I will probably get one of these for if I can. That way I can compare.

    I love that stock!
    Who makes it?
    Yup looks like a Manners folder in Midnight camo. Appears to have barricade mini chassis.

    Very cool, how is it cycling & shooting?
    I’m still playing with the internal mag adapter height as the odd round is getting caught on the top of the chamber, but l really like the feel of the bolt throw. Only have a a few hundred rounds through it so far but the groups on steel at 250m are looking promising.

    I'm glad they don't make one that fits a CZ 455.
    You almost cost me $1,500......

    How to go completely overboard with a .22LR Challenger format pistol: Start with a Tactical Solutions X-Ring VR receiver. Fit to it a Beyer 10" fluted aluminum barrel with SS liner. Throw a Beyer Linear Compensator up front. Install a Kidd 2.5 LB single stage trigger onto the receiver. Then, drop it all into a Enoch Industries Odin billet aluminum chassis. The only part from Ruger is the 25-RD magazine.

    Just posting another little Kidd barreled 10-22 . . . best this old geezer can get out of it is 3/4 inch or so groups at 50 yes . . . but I'm super happy with that. Before the Kidd barrel . . . it was 4 and 5 inch groups.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    So much fun and I only wish I’d found precision 22s a long time ago. Left hand B14rC. The 30 moa rail and NF NX8 mean, if my data holds good, she can dialed past 400 yards. Eta Glass is 4-32 mil xt. I’m super impressed with what she can do so far and eager to learn more and improve my skills, including wind calls. - I will give NRL 22 a try soon.

    Boy, am I out of the loop...when did they move the bolt stop up to the 11:00 position, and is this a newer version of the Three-60?

    Just looked at mine in the box, May date with the older style. I wonder if it has something to do with them breaking/shearing?

    All the RF rifles I have with stocks by Doan Trevor. Actually had to sneak a CF rifle into the photo, as the 1st stock Doan finished for me was on a BAT 3L prone rifle in 6 Dasher w/Leupold 8.5-25x50(top rifle in the pic). Next is the latest stock he did for a V22S, w/Leupold 24x BRD, then a 52D I found at an online auction site w/Unertl 16x, and finally, another 52D, this one from CMP that was beat to crap. So I had Mike Ross re-barrel it with a Broughton blank that they contoured to match the bbl on the Miroku reproduction sporting rifle.

    The blank for the BAT 3L came from Jim Cloward's shop after Steve & Shirley McGee went up to Washington to buy some of his blank inventory when he decided to retire. Then in 2009 they let me know they were getting ready to retire from their stockmaking business, so I went up and picked out this blank, they duplicated it, and then installed their 3-way buttplate & adjustable cheekpiece hardware. When I saw how nice it'd turned out, I knew better than to trust my meager woodworking skills on that nice a stock, so got Doan to finish the inlet, bedding, and the finish of the stock. When he finished the job, I flew down with an English walnut blank from Cecil Fredi and asked him if he'd consider making a stock similar to the Winchester 52B Sporting rifle, which he did a wonderful job on, making custom bottom metal, and using some scraps of Bastogne to make the pistol grip cap & forend tip. He even managed to find an original Winchester checkered steel buttplate with the little 'V' projection at the top, and used it to provide the finishing touch. The other 52D in the H&H pattern claro walnut stock is the only stock I didn't order from him, and has a shortened butt as ordered by the original owner. I bought a Centra adjustable buttplate for it to get the LOP long enough to fit me in prone. Another friend found me the Unertl on eBay, which I think is the perfect scope for this rifle. It's taken 13yrs to aquire these stocks from Doan and the McGees, and I wouldn't trade any of them for anything else I've ever seen...

    Thanks guys - a significant part of the pleasure of owning these rifles is sharing them with friends, whether online, or in person. Shooting HP XC & LR matches was the vehicle for meeting both the McGees & Doan, and friendships born on the firing line & in the pits are as treasured as these rifles. Even though I'll probably never get to meet the majority of the friends I've met online, it's still great to share information, experiences, & ideas with guys like you.

    Finally got my ZCO840 on Friday to go with my Vudoo360.
    8-month wait on the rifle and a 4-month wait on the scope. 😑
    I'm getting too old for waiting like this, Never Again! 🤨
    Nice set up! How do you like your ZCO840? I‘m currently running a Nightforce BEAST on my Vudoo. I run a ZCO 527 on my 6CM and 223 rigs, and I love the ZCO’s.

    I like it really well and have no regrets buying it.
    Great glass, precise controls, and great tracking like I've always heard about ZCO.
    I also find it very attractive for what that's worth.
    Your rifle and Nightforce Beast are really nice too!
    I recently purchased an MDT Elite grip like yours for my ARS chassis and like it very much. 👍🏼

    Thank you. I really like the MDT Elite grip. I was going to buy another ZCO, but I had a brand new NF BEAST just sitting in the safe and thought it would work great on the Vudoo. I’m going to use the NF for now, but I might end up selling it to fund another ZCO.

    How are you mounting your Sinclair to your rifle? Sinclair makes a picatinny adapter that replaces the sling stud mount but they have been out of stock forever. I have been wondering if this would clamp down tight enough.

    I have an ARCA rail attached to my chassis. I used this Warne adapter to work with the bipod’s sling stud mount.

    I am a big fan of Warne products, but going from ARCA to sling stud so a Harris (or cheaper) bipod, seems like a down grade in potential performance.

    The Sinclair uses a sling stud but to me it can be a real bitch to attach to rifle. It is a really good option for bench shooting except for that problem. That is the reason for the adapter. Much easier to attach to rifle.

    I had the range all to myself today, and also had my camera with me. Figured I may as well take a few shots of my rifle while I was there. It's my super cheap PRS rifle, a Norinco NS523. Originally imported to the USA in the 90's as a barreled action, and the importer had stocks built in the USA. A bunch showed up in Canada around 2014 or so with stocks from a different rifle that only sort of fit, and were probably made from leftover Chinese pallet wood. They have a reputation for being extremely accurate though, and I figured for $200 I couldn't go too far wrong. I built the stock from some 3/4" birch that I laminated into a blank, and the adjustable cheep piece is because once I tried rimfire PRS, I changed the scope to something a bit more suitable, but it ended up higher than the one I had on previously. I was doing some ballistics testing and improving my dope today, and was almost able to clear a 280 yard KYL with 8"-3" targets. I need to revisit my bipod to ARCA clamp adapter though, and get the bipod not hanging off the back of the clamp so much. That'll be easy though, just have to drill and tap a 3/8" hole further forward instead of using the one that was already in the center of the clamp.

    Neat rifle & stock, definitely not something you're going to see every day! Just goes to show that where there's a will, there's a way. Beautiful place to shoot also...
