Had the Mossy sniper pic'd above out today after I was done with the 300 mag.

I have the duplex scope on it now that came with my 300, in 3-9x. I have it zeroed 1" or so low at 100y. W/ Kentuky Windage hold-over off hand and rested I can bong the 200y gong 6-8 times of 10. I really aint had it that long and probably only have a 1000 rounds through it but it as of now goes everywhere w/ me. The trigger is a gritty piece of crap but, once you get past that it's deadly. It's wonderfull to wind down w/ it short and long range and nail a gong someone next to you is tagging with a hi-power rifle 200y out. Sliding over to the gallery wi/ over 100 swingers and stuff it owns everything out to the limit of 100y. I'ts just a great hunting rifle too cuz it's tiny and light. Fox and ground squirrels, crows, etc, no chance if I get a good hold, they're in the bag. I'm getting a mil-dot scope for it soon and then it's gonna be ON. Very Happy I had a really good day shooting today, but was pretty tired after the 300. I sucked it up, pulled my little snioer out and was glad I did, it rounded out the day perfectly.

Whomever designed this caliber got it right. After shooting these in many forms and fashions for over 45 years they STILL never fail to amaze, impress, relax and simply feed my passion for shooting.

Ode to the humble .22. Cool

Stovey, you have lived with this for over a year now. Why not take some toothpaste or get some fine polishing compound from Autozone, pull the trigger group, glob some on the sear, and work it/polish it up? I bet you could have a nice smooth pull in about 15 minutes.

Oh, I cycle me mil-spec AR triggers through my S&W 22LR. After about 2000 rounds the triggers are nice and smooth!! Still a bit to much travel but well above average for a mil-spec trigger.

If you want a nice trigger use hard stones and a bearing surface that keeps everything square. Lapping the pieces with toothpaste or lapping compound never keeps the surfaces square so you don't get as nice a pull.

Somewhere I still have my setup. some glss bearing surfaces and a set of three stones.... I haven't needed it in so long that I have forgotten where it is..........

PaulS point is a good one. I forgot to say, reinstall after you glob it on. This way it will stay square in you action and polish the surfaces as they touch each other.

Slimjim,
Reinstalling the pieces will insure that they are polished together but not that they will be flat or square. It practically promises that there will be grooves in the two pieces that cause extra drag.
Lapping in the gun will smooth the pull but it is not the best way nor will it do a good job.
I tend to be a perfectionist - I went so far as to build a fixture to do my Ruger security six trigger - it took a lot of time but I have a Ruger with the best trigger pull (barring the weight) of any revolver I have ever handled. I kept the single action pull at 4 pounds - as I do with all my guns. It has no creep, is smooth as glass and no overtravel. It makes me happy and I guess that is the important thing. Some of the Smiths I have handled have a double action pull that is less than my single action pull but I shoot mine at other things than targets and I need a hammer fall that will always fire a magnum primer.

Yeh I have.. Laughing

It's still under factory wrty so I aint messing with it. I did "marry" it w/ the action out of the stock catching the hammer on a gloved thumb so it didnt land on a cross-piece. About 2 million times Laughing . The tigger group is roll pinned in and it looks like a nightmare to get out of the reciever and get back together. I got stones and compounds but might take it in someday, for now I'm OK with it. Kind of a shock when ya first shoot it after other stuff with a nice trigger but I can adjust after a shot or two.
