I could live with the fish scales....


Image result for guns & ammo feb 2019

Excerpt from Guns & Ammo article on Zephyr II February 2019....



" The stock has a 14 1/2-inch length of pull, which was done on purpose. If you combine a short receiver with the common 13 1/2-inch length of pull, it would require a scope to be pushed forward to where the scope's turret housing would hit the forward ring.

" It would likely still put the scope too close to the shooter's face for a full field of view. The Zephyr II's longer 14 1/2-inch length of pull solves this problem."

Bud it’s a pretty rifle but it’s fish scale checkering which I find yucky.

Eduardo, I saw two Heritage Rough riders in 22LR 22WMR in the local gunshop here.  $145 for the 4.75" barrel and $157 for the 6.5" barrel.  $159 for the 6.5" in 22LR or 22 Mag also with a free holster.
All with cocobolo grips, blued.

Something even we could afford...

Image result for remington 700 300 blackout tactical

My buddie named EDDIE, believe it or not, bought four raffle tickets at a CHURCH in Corsicana that was going to raffle off 52 firearms ( one a week ) for a boy who has cancer. 


Once they had sold all the tickets they began to pick them out! 




Image result for turkish 9mm handgun

In January he was picked and won a Canik 9mm pistol!  






This week he was notified and won the Remington. He's already stuck a Vortex scope on it. I forgot to study the scope, but I did look at the rifle.  



Unbelievable.

What is your shooting technique?  I ask as some folks put the gun down pretty low on their shoulder and it requires you to bend and push your neck down to the stock, basically leaning into the gun.  Makes the length of pull seem a bit shorter. 

Another technique, if you put the bottom of the stock in the little pocket right below your collar bone, then you don't have to bend your neck at all as the stock is raised into your cheek weld.  Makes that LOP feel much longer.  It can give you an inch or two.

I have the same issue as you, many stocks are pretty short for me.  But this helps a lot.  Plus for me it seems much faster to just bring the gun up to your cheek instead of having to bring the gun up and bring my head down.  I was taught to shoot AR-15s that way, and now use it for all my long guns. 

 
 
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

That's what I was thinking too.

Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

It only hurts when you shoot it off a bench or from prone. Otherwise it's a sweetheart.
