This and that…

12,642…that’s the number of Spam attempts stopped on this little blog site in the past six months, that’s how firmly entrenched liars and thieves are in this “internet”…Yeah Al Gore may just have invented this after all.

Traded a non-threaded Ruger SR-22 for a New S&W MP22 Compact Suppressor ready, hey once you go suppressor you never want to go back…and no Dummycrats they’re not SILENT…they’re just not harmfully loud. The Brits consider them an essential health and safety item.

Have a Taylor/Uberti .32-20 coming sometime…they told the LGS it was in stock and they’d get it right out…2 weeks ago, lol.

Life is good, God is Good, all the time.

CZ452 .17m2

Thursday I picked up a CZ 452 in .17m2 from my Gunsmith that I’d had shortened and threaded, barrel is cut back to 16.5 inches and threaded 1/2×28 to take my Suppressor. This now gives me a rifle in each of the four common rimfire calibers set up for a suppressor, several .22lrs, and a .22wmr, two .17hmrs and this one. Likely anything I purchase going forward will be threaded, its just so nice to shoot quietly.

I’m so disappointed that while quite anti gun countries elsewhere consider Suppressors good health and safety products, here in the US our retarded Representatives think they’re the tools of criminals. Just proves how ignorant they really are.

Look what I found…

I don’t have a lot of Winchesters, though I’ve added some nice ones the last couple of years, M75 Sporter, M72A with Apertures and grooved receiver, a restored 1906. Today I added a 1942 M63 in quite nice condition, I’d owned a Taurus copy several years ago but am delighted to have the “real deal”, not perfect but very nice and a good shooter even at 50 yards which was a test for my old eyes.

Had fun playing around with it at the range today, was able to do some credible shooting even with no Aperture disc, got to fix that.

Tikka T1x…

The best way to judge a product is to try it yourself. Tried a CZ 457 Varmint and its excellent, now a T1x comes home and I’ll see for myself how it does, a gent at Fuquay Guns said he liked his two and owned CZ’s and felt they were very much alike. Not crazy about the Synthetic stocks and the protruding magazines but otherwise seems to be a well done rifle, I’m hoping to give it a trial along side a New CZ 455 Stainless in .17hmr too. I’ll try the same ammo in both.

CZ 457…We’ll see

If you don’t want anymore firearms stay out of gunshops, a stop by Fuguay Guns and Gold to see if they had any magazines for the G43 and G48 (they didn’t) resulted in my purchasing one even after saying I’d no interest. Anyone who knows me will tell you I love an attractive wooden stock and once I’d seen this one the predictable happened. With all the Debbie downer talk about this model I did a good inspection before making the plunge. Wood finish is good, the new nitrite finish is attractive and even over the entire rifle, muzzle and bore look good using a bore light, I couldn’t find a thing to reject it. I’d already handled two Tikka T1x’s there, a .22lr and a .17 her, nothing grabbing me there as I see little difference over the Sako Quad (okay its stock is more substantial) and the bulbous magazines don’t do a thing for me although I’m sure they’ll be good shooters as Sakos and Tikkas tend to be.

Next will be seeing how the 457 Varmint shoots, I’ve mounted a Weaver V24 in Warne 722M rings just need some weather to test in, lately I feel like we moved to Seattle…

Trigger is a new adjustable model, nothing like the old CZ’s, out of the box a clean crisp 2 lbs. 1 oz., lots of old complaints answered some new ones expressed on some forums. Only time will tell, I know the wood sure lured me in on this one.

CZ Kadet Pistol

In response to a post from Charlie who’s getting to be a regular here, thanks for that Charlie, I’ll post a couple of photos of my Kadets. For those not familiar with them they are basically a CZ 75 with a .22lr upper on them, weight and handling are pretty much identical to their 9mm’s. Accuracy while perhaps not Match Grade is very good.

The single action version (straight trigger) with suppressor adapter now belongs to a friend but the “normal” model is still around, neither were from a kit (upper, magazine) but original completer pistols. I believe CZ has stopped making the complete pistols now and only offers the conversion kit, well worth having for your CZ centerfire pistol. Thanks for making me think about the Kadet again Charlie its past due for some range time.

Another Desire satisfied

When they first came out I wanted one but just couldn’t justify the cost, I looked many over at gunshows and shops but always found a flaw or just didn’t have the spare cash. A local shop had this one on consignment for a goodly while and I finally made an offer and now its mine.

A Browning 52 replica, in very good condition, with good wood and at a price that seemed more than fair to me, now to accumulate the rest of the goodies to put it to use.

This and that…

Finished the AR 22, added a Magpul forearm in FDE to match the rest of the furnature, picked up a couple of 15 round Black Dog magazines used, it mostly needs shooting now.

Used up both my Glock Blue Label usages last week, first on a G48 and then Saturday on a G43x, these are great EDC pistol, the 48 shoots very well and the 43x will get some break in later today

Started Pulmonary Rehab again last Friday, so M/W/F mornings will be taken up for 12 weeks, hopefully I can get moving in the right direction again.
