Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default My target/plinking 22LR firearms

Here are my favorite .22LR firearms. Both highly accurate.

My 10/22 has a hammer forged target barrel. I have an old Japanese made Tasco red dot on it. It is about as good as any target red dot there is. It is one of my first red dot sights. I don't think much of the new Tasco red dots, they are made in China. I also installed a Volquartsen bolt release (big improvement over original) and a Volquartsen Magazine release.

My MKII has a bull barrel and fitted with an UltraDot Matchdot sight. It is one of the favorite by competition paper punchers.

On a good day I can put 10 rounds out of either and cover all shots with a quarter at 50 feet while standing.

I was going to suggest a postal match, but I'm not so sure, now.

I've done a trigger tune-up on both of them, including lighter trigger springs.

If that's the best you can do, you need more practice.

On the 10/22, did you do a 'trigger job'? or a drop in replacement.
If a replacement, which one? Thanks.

Nice Pogo.
Yup I think Tasco was made down around aviator in Miami? Super nice scopes with low prices and people passed them up because of the price. I had one on a .22 and loved it.
One of the big boys bought em out and they must have moved construction to Japan?

I did a trigger job. I had a video that I got from American Gunsmithing Institute. There are better videos on YouTube now than the one I had.

I used a diamond hone instead of a file to do the removing of metal. Don't use a Dremel to do the removing of metal, they are too difficult to control when doing precision work. I did use a Dremel to polish the surface with a felt wheel and jewelers rouge after finishing the job.

Tasco was originally founded by George Rosenfield in Miami, Florida. The manufacturing was in Japan and made telescopes (now Celestron), binoculars, microsopes, and gun sights. At that time Tasco optics was in the same league as Nikon and Leupold. I have an old Japanese made Tasco scope on a Ruger Number 1. It is as good as it gets.

In 2002 Tasco was sold to Bushnell and later manufacturing was shifted to China. They are basically $39.00 optics now (junk).

I have an older (Jap-made) Tasco red dot on my 22/45. That pistol is so accurate, it isn't challenging to shoot.

Those optic apparatus on the pistol take the fun away.

Here is my favorite .22 ever. CMMG barrel & bolt carrier on a Colt upper. I need to upgrade the front quad rail as it to heavy. Insight MRDS (Mini Red Dot Sight) on American defense mount. Black Dog Machine 50 round drum, Silencerco Spectre II suppressor. Work great on the M16 lower. Currently on an Aero Gen 2 I put together with KAK brace. I had more room for another complete gun over the upper taking up shelf space
