    I bought my first CZ in 2001 and still have it.  A CZ 22 rifle.  Ultra Lux Super BRNO with 28″ barrel.  Then came the 75B SA, 40 Cal. in 2002. Then a second one in 2015.  Then a SPO1 9mm upper with adj sights.  Then a Kadet 22 upper.  Two 40 uppers, 2 frames, one 9mm upper and a 22, all interchangeable with each other.

    Not a Ransom Rest, but a solid bench rest.  Tested at 50 ft. with SK Standard+.  20 shots.  Only changes to gun are replacement of funky aluminum rings with lower, all steel rings and a shorter reach trigger.  2.25# pull weight.

    Forster lock rings.  Work great.

    I don’t know if the “story” is correct, but it is still a cool looking contraption.

    The guy next to me at the range had a single shot 22lr he said dated back to the turn of the 19th/20th century.  He told me it has been in his family and was originally owned by his Great Grandfather.  The story was that at that time, instead of “darts” in the tavern,  they would use these pistols for target competitions.

    A flock of thirty (counted) wandered into my yard.  They were everywhere including the roof.  They went from house to house in the neighborhood looking for newly planted gardens.  I had visions of shooting one with a 22 but being in the city limits would have been arrested.

    First five shots with low pressure .325″ cast rounds (215 gr. w 18 gr. 2400) went into a 6″ black @ 100 yds.   I will be installing a nice peep sight for my degraded eyes.

    Markings on side of receiver match up to the below.  Large ring 98.

    It looks like the receiver matches up with #19 on the chart.  Very early 20th century.  It has a measured .323 barrel.  Probably different than original.

    When was the changeover from .318 to .323?  Most likely the reason for the barrel swap?

    I will test with some low pressure cast loads on Thurs or Fri.

    Thanks for the link to the receiver I.D…[Read more]

    Here is the top of the front ring.

  • JRR replied to the topic mauser antique? in the forum Bolt action rifles 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    The top of the receiver on the front ring has been knurled.  A textured surface.  The only marks on the receiver are the ones in the photo above.  It looks like a human face with hat above an N.  The left side of the front ring.

    Here it is again

     

  • JRR replied to the topic mauser antique? in the forum Bolt action rifles 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    It does have a stock and sling.  It’s definetly not a military stock.  Has a pachmeyer pad and a cheek rest on the left side.  The bore is .323″.  Inletting has two “L” shaped metal inserts that bare against the recoil lug.

    Does anyone have an idea where the receiver was made.  See photo above.

  • I found this at an estate sale.

    From what I can discern, it still has the military barrel, turned down with a full length rib added.  In faint numbers on the barrel near the receiver 7.92 otherwise known as 8mm.   An 8mm dummy round fits and chambers.  I think it should be checked for 8mm/06.  I’ll drop an 8mm dummy into the chamber without the…[Read more]

    Artful,

    I do have access.  I’m too cheap to buy the CZ75 inserts.

    I am sure that the groups will shrink after I get over this mother of all head colds.  Just the ventilation system with the cool air blowing was making me cough.

    Considering that this was my first 40 rounds with this new system, it worked out pretty well.  I did have one fa…[Read more]

    Second target with SK Standard +.  20 shots.  15 with dominant left eye and 5 with right eye.  Interesting how the group shifted position.

  • JRR replied to the topic new bullseye pistol in the forum Handguns 4 months, 3 weeks ago

    Just got back from the indoor range.  First time firing with the new Ultra Dot.  Two hand standing @ 50 feet.  3 inch black.

    First, sighting in target.  Aguila pistol match.

  • JRR replied to the topic new bullseye pistol in the forum Handguns 5 months ago

    I’m already thinking about lower rings with a more streamlined appearance.  These red dot units from Ultra hold up well on 1911, 45ACP slides.  Should last forever on a 22 where only the inner bolt moves.

  • JRR started the topic new bullseye pistol in the forum Handguns 5 months ago

    Have been using a Ruger target model 22 with upgraded trigger parts.  It’s accurate but not exciting or unique.

    I just completed a rail installation with four 8-40 screws and a new Ultra Dot from Black Friday sale.

    Crisp 2.8 lb trigger CZ 75 SA with the Kadet top end.  I have to wait until Tues. to sight in and test.
