I couldn't help myself. I had to buy it.

I need about 1" more pull but shoulders well enough. I haven't shot it yet but should be a fun day Sunday if it's not too cold.

Nice! I really don’t see how you couldn’t have bought it! Hope the weather cooperates for you.

Nice I still have my semi Squires Bingham I got new 45 years ago. Shoots like a tack driver still today. I bought a new one last summer just because I inherited about 10 000 .22 shells. Wanted a bolt action to play around with. Look after it and keep it clean and it will last you a life time. Got mine when I was 12 years old when my dad graduated me from a pellet gun. My Dad was a cop in Kitchener. How times have changed and not necessarily for the best. CHEERS!

A 22lr semi is high on my list. Before the b22 I thought I was going to start with a 1022. Now I'm not so sure that is the right option for me. Lots of marlins out there and there has to be a reason for that. The Squires Bingham is worth some research too. Thanks. My next purchase will probably be a shotgun for trap or skeet. Would be nice if I found something thing that suits me for both. I need to find budget in there for a pcp too. What use is it buying a hpa compressor when I have no pcp to shoot?

I've been really enjoying the b22. Quite accurate. Very cold and very windy days the last two weekends and it was 3/4" ctc at 50 yards with cci mini mags. Standard velocity nearly as good. I'm sure with better weather those groups will tighten up significantly.

Seems my web file server is unavailable. That should come back up soon.

Savage B22 FV. There is a wood stock model denoted "G" but this is a beater. I wanted the synth stock so I would feel no guilt for rough use.
