  1. Rifles
    Wondering what people here would recommend for a reasonably priced, accurate .308 bolt gun? I don't care about tacticool as I'd rather spend the extra $$ on good glass. I've been doing some research and it seems like Savage and Howa 1500 keep coming up again and again as best values. Your...

    So I'm sitting here toying with the idea of building a bolt action ar-15. Since the NY Safe BS, building any sort of semi-auto AR is pretty much pointless, since it has to be "featureless" or have a fixed mag, both of which make it not really worthwhile to do, at least to me. However, if you...

    dude, Ive never seen this before, I wonder if its available here

    Aside from a few odd balls... I wish there was a Savage Axis or something similar in 45acp or 9mm. Would be a great plinker and candidate for lead cast ammo... Super cheap

    I can't believe I don't have a bolt action, lol... need to change that. First up is 22 Hornet (because I bought some ammo under the wire, lol). What do you guys recommend? Like to have a nice "varmint" gun and maybe try a little hunting this year... Is this a caliber you can do a project...

    with all this crapanella going on with magazine capacity wouldn't it be logical for a manufacturer to offer a new gun with various capacity magazines???? I can't even consider the ruger American .22 since it comes with a 10 rd mag. Marlin too. CZ and savage are the only two manufacturers (...

    Very easy to install, videos all over YouTube show you how to do it. This is a definite must have for the 10/22, IMO, and gets rid of having to fumble with that ridiculous release that comes standard on the 10/22. Bought this one, a Volquartsen Custom 10BR10B: Auto Bolt Release for Ruger 10 22...

    Can anyone tell me if their Savage axis bolt handle wobbles a little bit in the closed position? I just want to make sure this is normal and not something wrong with the gun. Thank you! If you need a better idea of what I am talking about, I can upload a video upon request.

    Help me out here, my buddy wants to go turkey hunting tomorrow so I went out today to pattern my gun. Fired a shot, and noticed that the bolt had blown back almost to point of ejecting the shell. At first I thought maybe it was me, I was wearing gloves (never shot with gloves before) and...
  11. Long Range Precision Shooting
    I'm putting together a medium/long range 308 precision shooter. Here's my list of goodies. - 700 SPS AAC - M11 Severe Duty brake - XLR Chassis - undecided on the glass - Atlas Bipod - Pacific Tool and Gauge fluted bolt All PTG bolts are custom made, so I wanna make sure I get this right...
  12. Rifles
    Hey Guys, I'm just getting into bolt action rifles. I just bought the Savage Axis XP in .308 . yeah yeah I know its a budget rifle you get what you pay for and that's all the money I had at the time. Needless to say, I really love the rifle and its pretty accurate. Ive been shooting out 200...
  13. Rifles
    When I pull my bolt back and push it forward on any speed but lightning quick, the sear on the timney trigger is not catching the bolt to hold the pin back. I have sunk $2100 into this gun and it has never had a single round of ammunition through it. I am now too nervous to attempt it because I...

    Just curious if its ok in NY to have a threaded barrel on a rifle that is a bolt action? Thanks
  15. The AR-15
    NOT "when they break". I mean, after how many rounds fired. Specifically; firing pins, buffers, buffer springs, hammer springs, other bolt parts. Heck, barrels too. I have about 7k+ rounds downrange and hadn't even considered changing anything yet, but in searching for a spare extractor pin...
  16. Rifles
    Hi, I have been looking for short 16" 9mm bolt action for plinking and varmints and also as the next logical step for one of the children. The only thing I have seen that is close is a Spanish destroyer carbine in 9 largo. This is a very nice hard to beat action and could take mauser stocks...

    My Father inlaw gave me a BSA 30-06 back in 2000 with out the bolt . Can anyone direct me to any info ? The serial number is 7D1xxx

    I just saw a great full page add in Shotgun News from Century International Arms re a bunch of cool bolt actions they have for sale from the Zastava factory in Serbia. Century International Arms that is only one of them. they have three models in total, with two of them coming in everything...

    DIM(did it myself) Decide to try my hand at installing a oversized bolt knob on my mossberg MVP. All done with a bench grinder and a table top belt sander, a little dremeling and some hand filing. took about 3 hours total which includes stopping and measuring frequently. The knob is a Brownell's...
