i had called my local dealer last week to have him order me a ultra .22 mag and he told me i could pick it up wednesday.showed up and he said they were all out of stock and i was rather upset he didnt call me and tell me this before i drove 20 mins to his shop.but i went to the local gander mountain today and a HMR was callin my name! 139 out the door!

picked up 2 boxes of ammo and slapped a tasco varmint 2.5x-10x mil-dot scope on it.did a quick sight in and to say i am impressed is a understatement. 5 shots at 50 yards off shooting sticks that i can cover with a quarter.i know its not spectacular but for doing nothing but putting the scope on i am happy! :D

Good choice there Kid!!! Nice comeback and recovery!!!! If yours is like both of my Sportsters, you'll want to do a trigger job on it, then you can get those groups even smaller along with a good break in!! Read Swift One's recent post in the Centerfire forum for the links to the trigger job instructions.

Congrats!!

to be honest with you,i really dont think the trigger is half bad,id say maybe.....4-5 lbs,which i find acceptable,but if its not a hard fix and wont muck up my gun,i might give it a whirl :D :music:

Read the instruction over and see if you want to tackle it, you may need to buy some tools, which can be expensive if you don't already have em. Raynor's instructions are the simplest, but Perklo's instructions are very detailed as far as disassembly and reassembly. You only need to remove the bottom 3 pins. I didn't build the jig for knocking the pins out, just put masking tape over the pins so you won't mar the frame it the punch slips off the pin. A wood dowel of the correct size will work for the slave pin, also. You can easlily get a <2½lb, crisp, glass smooth trigger with no creep with very little honing.

I only use a ceramic hone from a Lansky knife sharpening kit, it's extremely fine. Polish the pin bores and pins with wet/dry 600 or 800 grit paper and you're ready to reassemble. I also use a little Tetra grease on the wear points.

If you can get 1200 or 1400 grit wet/dry paper at a local hardware store, it should work as long as you put it on a flat surface to work on, a piece of plate glass would be ideal. Whatever you end up using, use oil on the paper or stone when honing.
