oh hot damn, a savage 42 takedown
let's talk about pack guns
well, maybe it's just that i've carried an M6 on more adventures then i care to count and now there's an option with a real trigger and actual furniture that's got me hyped
i was so let down by the chiappa
Anyone try out a henry survival?
16" blued barrel
35" overall length
Action and barrel fit inside stock for transport
I wanna say 10 round mags? But somewhere I just read 8+1
I've really wanted one of these for a while, a couple months ago on dick's sporting website they were $150, now they're $250...Anyone think thats a deal or could I find something better/cheaper?
if you want to shoot it like a plinker its a flimsy feeling pile of crap with an uncomfortable stock
if you want to use it as intended its a nice compact package thats easy to carry everywhere and a last resort gun if you need it
Had one. Sold it.
They're amazingly inaccurate (like, 6 inch groups at 50 yards from a benchrest inaccurate), the sights suck camel dicks, and the fact that it fits inside the stock is kind of useless unless you intend to take it on a boat and need it to float if it falls in the water. For an aircraft survival kit that will probably never get used? It's perfect. For an emergency or backpacking rifle that you intend to take game with? It's fuckng shit. Just buy a TD 10/22, a marlin papoose, or this savage contraption. Trust me, anon. Learn from my mistakes.
the off set fuck huge grip feels funny in hand, the sights are pretty shit and it's one of the least reliable semi-auto .22s i've ever shot for an extended period of time
as far as a fuck around rifle it's worth having if you can pick one up second hand for like $75 but i'd pick just about any other .22lr over it
do they make a takedown guide gun?
i've had a hard on for the taylors 1892 alaskan for a while, but a .45-70 would be fun too
they used to then rem bought them out and ruined production. many of the niche models were discontinued. they supposedly got their shit back together in 2015. and plan to reintroduce guns.
i'm not much of a surplus collector, but does anyone know if paratrooper arisakas are a thing that are common and can be had for not thousands of dollars and be actually shootable?
any arisaka isnt really shootable
finding ammo is bitch
that said you could get one for under a grand most ww2 bolt action milsurp is available for less than a grand unless its really collectible in perfect condition and all matching
i'm sure reloading is an option or rechambering if need be
i just never know with jap shit because it seems like half their surplus rifles are some one off weird prototype worth billions of moneys
that's what i mean, it perfectly carries itself and can fit in your pack, or you could possibly sling it around your shoulder. Idk if they have slings (doesn't look like it in the image) but you could attach one.
Probably rather throw it in my pack though
Single shot, in 22lr, 22 mag, and 17hmr, I really want one. I can paracord my knife sheath in there, put a crappy optic on it, and shoot all day long for almost no money compared to most guns
If you're willing to reload and pay extra up front for new production stuff, Jap ammo isn't as hard to find as it seems. But it's disproportionally priced in relation to A) how well it works and B) just how many rifle cartridges in America can do the exact same thing.
It's kind of sad that 8mm Mauser is only a little easier to find and is pretty much a dead cartridge now.
taking this into consideration as well. I'd probably plink with it occasionally for fun, but I'd store it in a BOB/INCH bag regardless. Just as an extra rifle. For that compact size/weight, it feels worth it to me, plus dat abundant .22lr
It wouldn't be my only rifle, but it would be my only .22 rifle. At the moment.
I'll definitely be buying another more reliable one, considering the information I've gathered in this thread, and if the habbeding habbens, ill take them both with me
Got one for Christmas. Having problems sighting it in but it might just be me
why doesn't anyone a decent takedown bolt gun in a center fire cartridge?
lel-kek tried once upon a time
back when they were still grundel
or you can just bubba something up yourself
I don't know, man. I just saved the pictures.
Chiappa makes a takedown .45-70- the Ridge Runner.
