Sunday, June 8. Midnight. I put the Quake Claw sling back on the 10/22 African style.
Left shoulder carry barrel down. Can get it into firing position in less than a sec.
Going to put the other sling with sticky screws onto the scabbard.
... in a frustrating twist of fate, I couldn't bring it home.
Why? My driver's license expired last summer on my birthday. I don't own a car and have moved since last renewal, so I didn't get the renewal form in the mail and just wasn't paying attention.
So I had to leave it at the shop. I went ahead and paid my dealer for it -- no need making him wait. But couldn't bring it home.
And now I have to wait a week -- until next Wednesday -- when the satellite branch of the state DMV opens again in my town. (Twice a month, two days only -- such is life in rural Maine.)
Color me super bummed!
But at least I got a chance to look it over, fondle it a bit. First thing that stood out for me: those fiber optic sights. Even in the shop, they really glowed.
I wonder how I'll do with that short LOP, but in winter, with extra clothing on, it'll be fine. And the stock is modular, so I may add some length later, or even better, a Hogue overmolded full size stock.
The drop In replacement BX trigger (lighter pull) looks interesting. Is it already modified so slide locks open after last round? If not, will the modification/part for stock 10/22 triggers that lock slide open work on the “new” trigger group? Thanks.
I'm new to firearms, and bought a Ruger 10/22, and a Ruger PC Carbine.
I hate the 10/22 sights (as most do) and I'm pretty terrible while shooting with them. I'm tempted by the Tech sights that everyone recommends. I like the old-school simplicity and zero maintenance. But I'm wondering if...
My 1022 rifle has never been fired;
the magazines are new, as well.
it could be said that I am newer to firearms
than my firearm is new to the world:
so please forgive my ignorance.
Here's my problem:
My weapon cycled fine
when I bought it in late March,
though I noticed it was...
I have had intermittent problems with failures to eject and failures to feed since I have had this gun. Ruger worked on it twice. The second time they replaced the receiver. It seemed to be okay after that, with only occasional issues that most likely were cheap ammo related. I have been...
