I'm REALLY liking the newest member of my Nylon collection.
1975 Nylon 10c.
Took awhile to get the mags to work correctly..
Had to glue a short piece of clothes hangar wire on the magazine shelf..
But now it snaps in there and locks up like a bank vault.
Shoots five for five Everytime.
Very accurate and absolutely totally fun to shoot.
Have a ten round magazine that's working good too.
Very realiable weapon.

Ever since I bought that first 10/22, it became obvious, at least to me, that the 10/22 action and magazine were the best available (IMO).

Over the last few years, I have greatly narrowed my gun collection..giving them away to my son and grand children.

Then recently, it occurred to me that I needed a handy little .22 semi-auto rifle, so I surfed the net, especially the YouTube reviews and tests.

I discovered that the patent on the great Ruger 10/22 action has run out, and others are unabashedly using that excellent base.

I discovered that Thompson Center (now Smith & Wesson) is making an excellent .22 based on the Ruger, and with most aftermarket parts for the Ruger, fitting right into the TC design.

My gunsmith grandson reworks 10/22 actions, including reshaping the bolt. Curiously, TC has already reshaped their bolt very close to the custom reworked ones.

I picked up my new TCR22 on Friday... Here's Jerry Miculek putting a TCR22 through it's paces..note the "extras" built into the new rifle.

Local gun shop posted up on Facebook that they have 3 or 4 in stock right now. Dave's in Holland, IN, just in case anyone is interested.

Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.

I don't delude myself however.. THe fact that Jerry Miculek can shoot like that, doesn't mean I can, just because I have the same rifle..

Interesting to note, Jerry said near the end of the video, that one of his early .22 rifles, was a Nylon 66.

I have one of the Brown Nylon 66 that I bought used back in the mid 90's for about $65.00. It actually looks brand new. It's a sweet shooting rifle.

I need to buy my kids one each(or trade an old tractor for them) so they'll remember the .22 auto their dad favored since 1972.
