Ruger American Rimfire Target .22
As we noted a couple of issues ago, the shooting community is seeing more and more factory-supplied threaded barrels on rifles to allow application of muzzle devices, including sound suppressors.
Our shooters noted a marked difference in recoil at the shoulder, and, perhaps more profound, the lack of muzzle blast and report created better shooter conditions behind the gun. A lot of things can contribute to flinching and missing, and noise and a sharp push into the shoulder are two of them. This time, we cut way down on the noise — to practically nothing, which has its own appeal — by shooting three rimfire bolt-actions side by side with a suppressor.
We realize one of the drawbacks of shooting quieter is the initial cost of the cans as well as the red tape. But we can offer a strategy for making the can work across many firearms, so you can amortize its cost per shot. But first, the rifles. We ordered all three rimfires online from BudsGunShop.
The is similar to our test model, with the former having a barrel length of 22 inches rather than the incher on our rifle. Other 22 LR chamberings in the line include thewhich has an inch stainless tube; the Talo Distributor Exclusivewhich comes with a Muddy Girl Camo Synthetic stock; and The Shooting Store Distributor Exclusive Modelwhich has an OD green synthetic stock that contrasts with the black comb modules.
Other chamberings include 17 HMR Model with a inch barrel; Model with an inch barrel and 22 WMR Models andwith and inch barrel lengths, respectively. Like the Ruger, the CZ is part of a sizable line of rimfires offered by the Kansas City, Kansas-based importer. Among the other offerings in the line are the CZ American Combo Package, which comes in 22 LR and also ships with a 17 HMR barrel, along with everything you need to make the caliber change.
Other interesting models include the American Stainless, which comes with a swappable It is inexpensive, but not cheap. One example of value was the receiver-mounted Picatinny top rail, which allowed us to pop on a Nikon scope with ease and bore-sight the rifle in minutes. Very handy. The Savage presents as a much bigger product than the others, mainly because of the heavy target, free-floating, button-rifled barrel.
The tubes on the others tend more toward Sporter contours, as the dimensions at the muzzles suggest 0. Range weights were close as well, with the Savage at 7. As such, any of these three would be totable for a day of squirrel or rabbit hunting, even with a suppressor.
For long-term use as is, the shooter would need shorter rings or a strap-on cheekpiece pad, or a different stock. Obviously, the first two options are more affordable. Also, for all three, we would have liked at least one extra mag to have come with the rifle. If you decide to buy one of these rifles, plan to buy three to five more magazines at the outset. For bench-accuracy shooting at 50 yards, we fired the rifles off Caldwell DeadShot shooting bags.
Accuracy is the average group size for five five-shot groups, measured center-to-center of the widest-apart bullet holes in each group, then rounded to the nearest tenth of an inch. The riflescope for the Savage was a Nikon M series x42mm No. The scope is equipped with a side-focus turret for parallax correction and a one-piece 1-inch main tube that is nitrogen-filled and O-ring-sealed. The glass lens elements are fully multi-coated and offer sharp target images.
Adjustment clicks gave the expected eighth-inch bullet impact movement at 50 yards, and we could adjust the click-stops while keeping the head on the stock because the adjustments have tactile clicks. Eye relief was 3. The FireDot scope has an illuminated dot right in the center of the duplex reticle. Its intensity can be stepped down by a switch on the left side of the scope — a useful setup for low-light conditions. The bright dot allowed us to center on the target X-rings for precise shot placement.
The proprietary MST Motion Sensor Technology automatically deactivates illumination after 5 minutes of inactivity, yet reactivates instantly as soon as any movement is detected.

I ordered a prefit for my Ruger American Predator 6. It shoots amazing. Chamber is cut to tight specs as well and resizing my brass literally requires no effort. I will definitely come back to PVA for future barrels! I called and talked to Josh a couple times and he was very helpful. After he answered all my questions I ordered a barrel chambered in 6mm creedmoor.
They shot amazing! I will definitely be coming back to buy another one when the time comes. Created with Sketch. Login or Sign Up 0. Button Rifling Shouldered vs. Barrel Nut.Our hotels were perfect. We enjoyed wonderful dinners, some in the hotels, and others along the way. We were pleasantly surprised that even the smallest hotels served gourmet meals, great food and beautiful presentation. This was the vacation of our dreams and we were blessed to travel with our daughter and two granddaughters, ages 8 and 11.
We were still in Iceland when the granddaughters talked of "when we come back to Iceland". We then knew the trip was a success and we can't thank Gudrun and Nordic Visitor enough. All aspects of the trip exceeded my expectations and the service from first contact to arriving home was excellent. Thanks for the hard work that you put in and the variety of accommodation was just what was required.
A truly memorable stay in Iceland which I hope to repeat soon.
The location of hotels so close to trains was excellent. Particularly liked the lovely new hotel in Trondheim and the interesting historic hotel in Bergen. Bjarni was available to answer our questions promptly while on the tour and arranged for our luggage transfer after the tour had started. I travelled with family to Denmark, Norway and Sweden this month and had a fantastic time, thanks in large part to the excellent job that Nordic Visitor did in coordinating my trip.
I customized one of their Scandinavian package deals by extending my time in certain cities and Nordic Visitor accommodated my requests. The hotels that they booked were very nice and all were close to tourist attractions and public transportation. The agency also booked some of the transportation, including a flight from Bergen to Stockholm, as well as all transportation for the Norway in a Nutshell tour, which was an awesome experience and the perfect way to take in the breathtaking scenery of the Norwegian mountains and fjords.
I would definitely use Nordic Visitor again, if I ever decide to return to Scandinavia. My wife and I took the Iceland Full Circle self-drive tour in early June. We then stayed on in Reykjavik for a few days.
Our tour was arranged by Jelena. She was very helpful. We were very pleased with the tour.Cavalero (3) odds 7. R2 1000m Class: 3-Y-O, Maiden, Set Weights 2:00PM Selections 14.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you :-) You are the best. I can not believe my website!!. I can't stop looking at it. Could not be happier!!. Ask the work on Monday everything was ready on Tuesday. Best Price in Tow. During my career I have worked with hundreds of wannabe web designers. Web Designer Express is by far the best service I have ever worked with.
Their prices are fair and reasonable and their work is quick, accurate and highly creative. You actually feel like they are a part of your team, not a hired company doing a job. Don't hire Web Designer Express unless you are interested in having your expectation exceeded.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for: - Your excellent service - Your fast execution - Your design ability - Your fast response to technical questions from you and your team We definitely will do more business in the future and I will recommend your services. The staff at Web Designer Express has massive talent. You guys were extremely patient with us and very generous with the time you spent with our company to ensure the highest quality of service performance and creativity was put out there.
Without a doubt, the Web Designer Express crew is an awesome group to work with!.Thanks to the great organisational skills of the company everything went according to plan. We were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel and given a bag of books and maps with our route and intinerary. The following day we were taken to collect our hire car and then we had a wonderful 10 days touring the south of the island.
Even before we arrived in Iceland we were most impressed with the services of Nordic Visitor. They tailor-made our trip to suit what we wanted to do, always responding promptly to our questions and a toll free number to phone meant we were also able to speak to them beforehand.
I cannot praise them too highly and would certainly use them again as well as recommend them to anybody. Booked a 10 day self drive tour of Iceland via Nordic Visitor.
Nordic Visitor arranged our complete itinery, arranged a hire car, booked hotels, mapped our route, arranged a pick up from the airport. The hotels were great, travel connections were flawless and the provided map and instructions were accurate and easily followed.
All in all the holiday of a lifetime, without any worries This was the first time I booked a vacation with a tour company I found by internet research and not from a friend or trusted source.
If you are on Trip Advisor as I was reading the reviews before booking - believe the glowing remarks - Nordic Visitor is terrific. It was a pleasure hearing her stories of Icelandic culture and history. The hotels were pleasant - not luxurious but I wasn't expecting luxury on this trip.
Each hotel had its own unique qualities. The food throughout the trip was superb. I am a research addict, which is why I love this site.
But I was getting overwhelmed with all of our options for places to stay and what we should do. So after researching travel agents, we booked with Nordic Visitor.
I am so glad that we did. All of our transportation was covered and there, and we just showed up to the hotels and it was all set. They listened to what we wanted (eg: farm guest houses instead of hotels). They answered quickly whenever I had a question, and were very gentle and generous with answering what I am sure were obnoxious questions. I would use them to book trips again in a heartbeat. The accommodations were incredible, even had the coveted room 202 at the Vik Icelandair Hotel!. My car and GPS were brand new, I was the 2nd person to use the car.
It was an amazing trip, and when I come back I will use NV again. Excellent service from the word 'Go'. At one point on the holiday there was a discrepancy between what was on our voucher and what the hotel thought were the arrangements for the evening meal, but after a quick e-mail from me she sorted it out there and then.
Overall a great holiday experience, we were very pleased that after e-mail discussion with our consultant we changed our preferred vehicle to larger AWD type, in particular when travelling through the ice and snow. We appreciated very much the map with hand written suggestions and all accommodation marked.
The written itinerary was an excellent guide. Combined with the GPS supplied meant we did not get lost. We thought the tour was very professionally organised and we had no problems whatsoever and would certainly recommend Nordic Visitor. However personally we like to travel a little slower and would have liked at least one more 2 night stay in a hotel, as we felt some days seemed too long by the time we got to our accommodation.
We didn't enjoy the Western Fjords as much as the rest of the country and if would recommend others to spend a similar number of days in Iceland but without visiting the Fjords.
The last day we felt was a bit of a rush to get the car back in time as we had an early flight the next day. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We were very impressed with the efficiency of everything which Nordic Visitor organised. The accommodation was varied and very friendly.
