    Rimfire Rifles
    Hey there, I recently bought a CZ 453 Premium (.22) and forgot to ask for a few extra magazines as it only comes with a standard 5 round one. So now I was browsing for magazines and found a few but I do not know which one to pick: 17 HMR or 22 WMR? Whats the difference? Need some help...

    Hello everyone (newbie here), I recently made the decision to purchase my first firearm and after some research decided to start with a .22 rifle.

    Rimfire Rifles
    I'm hoping I've found a place that might be able to help me. I have a Winchester Model 74 .22 LR, Serial 243XXXX, manufactured in 1949. It is in reasonably good condition. (I'll attach pics.) My grandfather used it to shoot starlings away from his martin houses (birds, for anyone not...

    Gunsmithing
    Hello, I have a model 270 Winchester .22 cal pump and it fails to eject fired rounds. I have replaced the firing pin, firing spring and ejector and still no luck.

  8. Savage 64 - Searching for an after market stock can't be THIS hard.

    Rimfire Rifles
    I've owned my Savage 64 for a few years now. I feel its pretty good for a low end .22lr. When I bought it I wanted an inexpensive and lightweight .22lr rifle that my wife would like to shoot as well, since she complained about the weight of my other rifles after a long day of shooting. Now...

    Gunsmithing
    Win Model 250, lever action 22, bolt assembly. Where do the two very small ball bearings (plungers) go in the bolt? I had my gun worked on several years ago and finally got around to firing it. It misfired alot. I disassembled the bolt and the two plungers were missing. I got replacement...
  10. New Winchester .17 Super Mag

    Rimfire Rifles
    I Just read an article in petersons February issue about the upcoming new cartridge. A 20 grain bullet at 3,000 fps out of a rimfire sounds pretty sweet. Savage is making a rifle for this caliber with some centerfire features like rear locking lugs .Maybe a new semi close coyote gun for me...
  11. Could It Be...A 5mm Magnum?!

    Cartridge Collecting
    I found this cartridge lying on the ground at the shooting range I go to. The only thing I can think of is that it is a 5mm Remington Magnum. It seems to be made by Aquila since it has the letter "A" on the bottom of it. It is also bottle-necked like the 17 HMR, but it is a tad shorter and...

    Rimfire Handguns
    I recently acquired one of these unique revolvers and it is a lot of fun to shoot. 22lr and 22 magnum cylinders, single or double action...with a12" barrel...the rear sight is adjustable and makes for a very accurate shooter. One would never guess the aga of this piece based on its' condition...
