Ahh! you wern't tweaking it were you?

If 550 is the pump action (15 short 11 long mag) I'll ask my old man how you make new pins for them. I'd say he's quiet an expert at it after having a series of mysterious spontanious breakages many many years ago, probably about the time his boy's were teenagers come to think of it :rolleyes:

sorry its a semi auto (made in 1949 i think). we have tried to heat the pin block and dift the broken end out but no luck. the rifle only cost me $50 so i'm not keen on spending a lot on it tho i wouldn't mind finding another one for parts.

and no i wasn't tweaking it (for a change), i'll leave that for the next one :p

AK , over size, after market mags, what you point at, does not get up again model.

Also has tripod mount, almost an lp/gpmg, except for no belt feed, can be fitted with laser and/or teloscope, has flash suppressor.

If I was you I wouldnt bother with such an old semi, the breakage now is likely to be the tip of the iceberg. I would just go and pick up a second hand ruger 10/22 and be done with it...

only thing about the 10/22 is when you own one you never seem to be able to stop yourself modding them :p, ours is onto its third stock(now a fully rubberised, swelled palm stock), its second barrel (a heavy bullbarrel with inbuilt silencer) and we just picked up some stick mags for the thing :p, they sorta become an addiction...

not interested in e-cat ....big mags, pistol grips and long barrels just get in the way for scrub hunting :) tho if price is ok it could be converted to something useable.

10/22 are just to darn exspencive for something i will need to mod. the old remm are actually quite a good rifle, but i'm not a big fan of tube mags.

I dont mean you will Need to mod it, but more that it just becomes something you like to do, just like modding a computer or car

sorry lagbort not quite was i was referring to. my $50 remmy shoots as good (if not better) as a $300 10/22. some rifles NEED to be modded to be worth useing ;-)

I hope you don't shoot rabbits with that. No good for the pot afterward.
May as well go for road kill. :lol:

Great on goats, range, and a hard hit for a clean kill, also hard to miss.

They have to go, but dont like to see any unintentionally harmfull creature suffer.

306 with a scope is good too, but slow.

Ummmmmm..... .306? I have used a .308. This is inches of course.

.22 = Rabbits, Hares, 'Possums, Feral cats etc.
.243 or .247 = Goats, Deer.
.303 = Deer and Pigs.
6.5 - 8.00mm and up will deal with the same as .303
For Elephants you probably want .50 and up. Especially if it's angry. :D

I have seen a person Rabbit shooting with a .44 Ruger. I was using a .22 that day and my rabbits went in the pot.

Shotguns with candlewax poured into cartridges are also useful for pigs.

I have never hunted Wapati down the South Island in which case I would probably use something with a fairly high muzzle velocity and a telescopic sight.

anything up to red deer size, i would use a .222, deadly accurate and packs one hell of a wallop :p, plus I find its one of the nicest cartridges to fire.

Gotta love the old brno fox tho, I never really appreciated how good it was until dad bought his new tikka .222...., just hope he never tries to sell the brno

.222 is a fine round for varmint or small animal hunting. its very underpowered (which makes very easy to shoot with) and certainly not recommened for deer hunting, with the exception of a pro hunter who only does neck/head shots.

I have shot many deer with my .222, and out to about 300yards i would be perfectly comfortable going for a neck/head shot with it as long as the animal wasnt walking around

I like the cut down .308 with a scope friend of mine has one with a laser. But they are a little to heavy in the back kick for me.

Thats why I like the 7.62 with a laser. Although technically out of range it will still ping goats at 800 meter's, which I enjoy doing, as the rest of them hang around for a second going "whats wrong with him" so you can clip another couple before they breake/bolt, If your lucky.
