Look what landed in my lap!



  • Remington 40X 22LR A-receiver from the remington custom shop. Nice ADL stock and factory everything with a great trigger. I'll be leaving this old girl completely original. I'll get a nice set of hawkins hybrids on there and a XTR-II or something and leave it be. :)

    Shoots real good too! Sub-1/2" groups even in the 30mph wind the other day.

  • Very nice!!



  • cool. That one even has the tombstone safety.

    Looks like a good rifle to replace @gash 's old savage mark 2!



  • @dddoo7 I'm a lefty, so no 40x for me :neutral_face:

    @orkan that is a gorgeous rifle!



  • Very nice.



  • @gash There are some custom actions that can be ordered in left hand.
    Some German stuff too.



  • @hypo sweet, thanks! If I had to guess, I'd venture to say Orkan has something in mind for when the time is right. For now, my savage does exactly what I need it to do, when I need it. No need for something else :)

    Indeed. ;)



  • Very nice.



  • Wow! that's Very nice!!
    Sure wish it would have landed in my lap : )

  • Nothing cool ever lands in my lap 😟



  • Well it looks like my plan of putting a Burris XTR-II on this thing is shot to hell. I figured for SURE the 2-10 model would parallax inside of 50yds...

    Nope!

    So it looks like I'll end up with one of those new genII PST's or something like that. Good as excuse as any to see what those are about and if they have learned anything in the Philippines.

    sigh

    The search continues.



  • I think the Nikon buckmaster will parallax inside of 50 yards.

    Try one of the Athlon Argos FFP scopes: 10 yards-inf.

    Getting some good reviews.

  • Well I am going to make a confession here. My 12x SS got bent (literally) and I sent it to SWFA for warranty. We shall report on that when I hear back from them, In the mean time I needed a scope for my .223 for our rifle clubs annual Christmas lunch and shoot. So I bought 1 of the aforementioned scopes.
    I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Long story short; I zeroed it and won the know your limit shoot at 100 yards, shooting all targets. I used my DOPE established with the SS to take first round hits on targets from 312 to 570 yards.
    I was pretty happy with the performance.
    Is it a great scope, for its price and features I would say yes. The warranty is the same as Vortex, but the CO. is new so we shall see there.
    Can it be compared to a Tier 1 scope??... NO, but it gives those on a budget a decent option.
    Buy once cry once is great, but I want to shoot while I save for that Tier 1 scope and this scope gets 'er done.



  • Well this is one of those rifles that's going to just sit around and get stared at a lot and not shot much. As a result, I'm not going to spend much on the optic. Somewhere around $1500 will be where the budget tops out. I'll find something. ;)

    Athlon certainly is the trendy cheap scope everyone seems enamored with.

    Sorry but I can't help but be a little happy someone I trust may get their hands on one of those fairly early to test.

    I'm thinking that 2-10 for my muzzleloader and the 3-15 for my AR.

    Are you talking Athlon? Did you see someone came up with a fix to help the mushy turrets?



  • @rhyno No, I'm all ears. I saw the zero stop with the nylon fasteners but not the mushy turrets.
    Please direct me.



  • @mamalukino
    Athlon Cronus Mushy Knob Fix! Works on all Athlon Scopes!
    http://www.scout.com/military/snipers-hide/forums/5511-Sniper's Hide Rifle Scopes/15223567

    It supposedly helps with the other models to, kind of silly to think they didn't test this, oh well.



  • @rhyno Thanks, I am going to try that.
