Love the beagle! I have the same Henry, I like it!


Rumors of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated.

CZ makes some nice 22 mags. I bought the 455. You can switch the barrels out with an allen key if you want a 22LR or 17HMR but that isn't why I bought it. I wanted something accurate. It will shoot 1 inch groups with most of the CCI stuff. The best ammo i have tried is the CCI 40gr Gamepoints. They group under an inch at 100 yards with a 7 power scope. There is a huge difference in 22 mag ammo consistency. I tried at least 16 different kinds of ammo in mine. Most were "good enough" group wise and some were not worth shooting. I would love to have some sort of semi auto in a 22 mag but nobody makes one that is reasonably priced. You guys that have the model 9422 mags do you know anywhere I can buy open sights for one? I took mine off to mount a scope on it and cant find them. The scope is now on my CZ. I liked the open sights on my 9422 LR but for some reason decided to put a scope on it.

I shoot the 40 grain Gamepoints out of my 597 for the same reason. Very accurate... when I do my job. My Ruger 96 should be here in about a week. I'll let ya know how that works out.

I have a Remington 597 in .22 LR and it has the worst trigger I have ever pulled. And agree that mags are shaky at best. Do you guys that have them have issues with the trigger?

I replaced the hammer on my 597 mag with a Volksquarten after market target hammer. Made a big difference. Trigger pull is around 2.5 to 3 lbs. If I could fix my feed issues I would be a happy camper. I ordered yet another magazine last week. I just keep hoping I'll get one that works ok. Just a crappy design. Gun shoots fine when it feeds right... which rarely happens. The other issue I have is when it gets real cold and damp the action gets a little slow and sometimes the trigger fails to reset... thus the search for the perfect, always functional, fast shooting, tack driving, .22 mag of my dreams... a lever action?... It never ends...lol!

Like Ty said, a semi in 22 mag. would be nice. Any opinions on the most accurate brand/model ?

Some web articles give the 17 hornet decent reviews.

Find a keltec dealer and get your name on the waiting list for their RMR-30. I Have their pmr30 and its very accurate and trouble free.

This will be an awesome pack gun with telescopic stock and being so light weight.

I have read a lot of good about the CZ 512 auto loader in 22mag. I have not talked to anyone with one but have my eyes on one in the future

AKPP, send your 597 back to Remington. Mine would misfeed all the time so I gave up and sent it in. They worked on it and told me to use the metal mags only. Mine works great.

I may very well end up doing that. I have the metal mags and haven't had any luck with them. The one that works the best won't take more that four rounds without sticking, then the hold open engages with one round remaining. Sometimes it just pushes one up past the chamber and the bullet strikes the edge of the chamber and stays there. I don't think there is anything wrong in the gun itself (other than cold related issues once in a while), I just can't find good magazine. And trying to load the mags in a hurry always results in a cartridge jammed inside between the round below it and the side of the magazine. They would do better making a five round single stack mag with a decent spring and metal feed ramp.

Wolverinebait,
Great post! I don't know how I missed it! I see you use your guns like I do... as tools...lol! Drives my dad crazy. He babies all of his guns and frets when he gets a scratch. I use them for walking sticks, clubs, paddles, shovels, bad mitten, and once in a while I shoot something... grin

Stumper :

Many of us have been following Kel Tec for years - especially the PMR-30. As one guy said - they are a proto type company, not a gun manufacturer. They just can't seem to produce guns and get their act together. Time will tell I guess. Based on their track record - lots of time.

They are worth the wait. It blows my mind that they put out 4000 plus guns a week and still cant keep up. I like the fact that they are made in the USA.

Little off topic, I see you guys talking Semi Auto Magnums, never seen one listed at Cabelas or Wholesale Sports.

Is there anywhere to buy Bulk ammo for the .22 magnum (like the .22 LR with boxes of 500+ shells)

Those Kel-Tec's look like something the seals would carry.

TheFurTrapper the largest volume I have ever seen was 250 rounds from Cabellas. I sure hope Cabellas sells ammo up here in Anchorage at there regular retail price

I agree Kusko and I would prefer a longer barrel. I like the pmr-30 , but I am still holding off to see how they do longer term.

In regards to Henry rifles - the word is they got impacted by Sandy and guns are scarce until after the 1st of the year. Difficult time for them considering it's their busy Christmas season.

When I started seriously looking at the Henry's a few weeks back I saw that the website stated that they had been damaged by Sandy. It is a bad time of year for that!
Got a new magazine for my 597, It feeds good but only holds five rounds (advertised as eight) and the hold open kicks in with one round left. At least I can get 4 shots off. This is the fourth magazine I have ordered. I shot a dime size group with it at 30 yards while testing the magazine. Too bad it has hiccups. My Ruger 96 should be here Tuesday or Wednesday. Hope that works out. My buddy just got his CZ .22 hornet(bolt). Real nice gun!
