OGS : How is the trigger ? A web review gave the trigger poor marks.

I paid about $460.00 for my model 96 but have no remorse, once I got by the thing feeling like my 10/22 and remembering to cycle the lever I love it. I have felt better triggers but have shot 10 shot nickel sized groups at 50 yards. At a hundred any error could be me more than the gun. This gun definitely has ammo preference however the cheap winchester dyna points shoot better than all others. It will not shoot the 33 gr plastic tip bullets well at all. I bought a couple extra rotary magazines which I really like and can keep an extra loaded in my pocket. When I first got the gun it would misfire about every 8 or 10 shots. Took the firing pin out which was very simple and found a small burr on the edge. Touched it up with emery cloth and have never had it misfire since. I have only taken 2 fox with it but sure liked the performance of the 22 mag. and the lack of fur damage. The 50gr. HP really hits them hard. I have been out calling hoping to try it on a coyote.

these guys make some nice ones if you cant find a ruger, and you could prob find one in the same price range as the ruger on gunsamerica or gunbroker.

AKpp- recent as a few years back. Bought tons of different ammo and could never get a tight group. Gave up on it after spending quite a bit on ammo and no luck on it. Could have been the exception, but kills me still.

Gotcha, thanks Matt. Scott, I like that Magnum Research. A little spendy, but nice none the less. Definitely worth further research. Hup, got your text, I'm going to FB LIL' BIT.

My dad has a Ruger 10-22M, nice gun, but the price of them nowadays in unreal. I to have a Remington 597 in 22M, don't buy one, as akpawpincher said, they are tackdrivers if you like a single shot, but the mags suck. If I was buying an automatic I would go with the Magnum Research, but they don't offer any with open sights, so it is a scope only show with them. For the price they get out of them they should at least come with sights.

Couple other options I like are my Winchester 9422 magnum and win 61 magnum pump. Both excellent guns.

I made a deal on a Ruger 96. I figure if it doesn't work out or I don't like the trigger or something I can sell it and keep trying. All I want is a reliable gun with a decent trigger that will hit a golf ball at 100 yards and isn't a bolt action or single shot....lol! Nothing against either of those but a quick follow up shot, sometimes followed by another and another and... well, you get the idea. grin I've looked at pretty much every .22 lever gun, pump, and semi auto... I really like the looks of the Henry and may have to get one just to have one... someday.

Stumper I have the 9422 and if it wasn't for the fact that it was the first gun I ever bought I would get rid of it, it shoots a nice pattern at 100 yards, have tryed different ammo , took apart and cleaned reall really well, next step is new glass on it , but I never could get it to group well with iron sights ( that's why it had a scope on it now) do I doupt that helps, gonna have to have a smith look at the crown.
But am glad to see someone has one that shoots.
I am in the process of looking for a new gun , just can't decide 22 mag , 22 hornet or wait for the 17 hornet


I come a learning,not a knowing

One of my buddies just ordered a CZ in .22 hornet. I love that cartrige but it's more than I need most of the time. He reloads so he can tinker around and find a good bullet/ powder load that won't open up a fox yet give a little more reach. The .17 hornet looks interesting too. Wish they made them in lever guns!

You can put tech sights on them if you want open sights without a smith. I'm also sure it would be cheap to run it through a mill to cut a couple dovetails.

why wait for the 17 hornet?? come to the store I can sell you one today.... savage model 25.... and the ammo...

sold one to a friend and he shot racoon with it...
100 yds he said there was no exit hole, and the racoon was basically a fur stuffed with "jello" when he picked it up... small hole in, no hole out and a mushy center.

These are my 2 trapline guns,.. Winchester & Henry lever actions in 22 magnum. I just think these are the best rifles to carry on a machine,... short, narrow, light, holds lots of shells, accurate, (altho I don't shoot golf balls). The Winchester did have a mis-fire issue when I first got it (well, I found it leaning against a tree in the Brooks Range),... but finally got that fixed. The Henry has never mis-fired, but it has had some issues with not ejecting empty shells at times,... still does that on occasion. One thing I would recommend with these is to not leave an empty case in the chamber,.. that's usually when I have had trouble with the Henry not ejecting it,... they seem to get stuck after it sits in there for a day or two. 22mags kill good out to 100 yards+, & don't do hardly any damage. I know I've popped a few fox & coyotes out to close to 150 yds & dropped them dead. I've shot everything with 22 mags,.. marten, fox, otters, lynx, coyotes, wolverines, wolves,... drops them all,...







here's a few examples,...
