New .22 LR Rifle

Postby getvicious » Thu Feb 18, 2016 10:33 pm

I just picked up a new .22 LR rifle on Monday.

It's a Mossberg 702 Plinkster. I got the one with the black plastic stock and 25 round magazine.

Took it out this afternoon after I got back from work to try it out. I gave the action and bore a good bath with Rem Action Cleaner then used Rem Oil on it. A few swipes thru the bore with my boresnake and it was ready to test.

Fired a magazine (25 rounds) thru it. Worked very nice. About zero felt recoil, smooth action, easy to see sights and very light.

I like it.

Now I need a few 10 round magazines.
It's not the blast that kills you - It's the tumble to the bottom of the 800 foot crater.....

Congrats on your new rifle. The mighty mouse .22 Rim Fire has been a part of just about every shooters life experience. I don't shoot mine often enough.

Are you going to scope it?

I have several .22 rifles that I enjoy. My favorite is a Marlin 39A with a 4x scope. She's a very good shooter and goes with me on most of my Range days.
