Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I just took a look at my Mk IV 22/45 and Ruger might be able to make a .22 magnum version if they delete the spring assist for the magazine. That way they could extend the magazine itself enough to fit the longer .22 magnum cartridge and still use the same sized frame. They'd probably be only able t...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I've got exactly zero experience with a .22 magnum gun, be it pistol or rifle.

I came close to trading for a KelTec PMR30 a few years ago, but decided against it. Mostly because I think it may have been an early model and from what I know of the early ones, those were the models that had issues.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Speaking of lever actions, Ruger also made a lever action .22 magnum that I think used 10/22 type mags. I think it was the 96/22M. I know they made a .17HMR 10/22, but had to stop and recall all the guns because the receivers were cracking. They also made a .22 magnum 10/22, but I forget why they s...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Man, I wish they still made the 96/44. Used prices on them are silly. Give Ruger a couple years and they'll bring out a new version like they did with the PC carbine. Didn't Ruger used to make a semi-auto .44 mag carbine ? The Deerfield I think is what it was called. They did. The Model 44 chambere...

Re: Coin shortage?

I went to Walmart this morning. They no longer accept cash through the self-checkouts. You have to go to a register to pay with cash. I guess that ends my getting anything groceries there, as we always use cash for groceries so I don't go over budget too much. I know a lot of people do the "cash in...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

If Ruger were to bring back the Deerfield (or Deer Slayer or whatever it was called), I'd buy one. I've only seen one example in a shop out here and it was nice. Kind of beat up, but in otherwise good shape. Must've been a truck gun for some old rancher. I thought about buying it, but I was more int...

On the subject of electronic currency, I'm reminded that my grandma way back in the 1960s accurately predicted the rise of credit cards.

Installed the new bolt latch. I rather like this one from Strike Industries. Nice, wide, serrated pad for setting the catch to hold the bolt open, vs that tiny little point on the stock latch.

I present to you the ultimate in manual cutting systems: the Kukrax . Do you like the cutting power and utility of kukris? The simplicity of purpose of an ax?

Well, I am now the owner of a shiny new Ruger Mk IV 22/45 Tactical pistol. :clap: So far I've found out a couple things about it. 1. Mk. III mags do not fit the Mk. IV (probably because they're from a 22/45 LITE and not a standard 22/45. Not sure what the difference is.) 2. Sights designed for the 2...

Yeah, I think one of the Geissele or Spikes Tactical safeties with the short lever on the right side might be better for you, NT2C. I had been looking at the AR Stoner safeties at Midway, but seeing your issue has me thinking otherwise. Looks like I'm going Geissele again. Which is ok since they wer...

The ambi safety I'm kinda on the fence about.

Unfortunately, in the fire position it rubs on my trigger fi...
