yay let's make even more of a fetish of guns.

Your hobby is bad, and you should feel bad.

No soul searching about yet another school being shot up? No, it’s “look I painted my gun red so it shoots faster!”

As much as I like the Ruger Precision Trigger, I did replace the ones in the .308 and 5.56x45 versions of this rifle with Timney triggers. The Ruger trigger is good, no doubt, but with the factory trigger there is an initial contact when you push the trigger safety back and then there's about a couple mm travel of the main trigger before it fires. The Timney version has no trigger safety and no pre-travel before firing. When you put 2.25 pounds on the trigger, the gun fires and until you do that, the trigger does not move.

Now, the Ruger Precision Rimfire uses the same Ruger Precision Trigger module as do the larger versions of the rifle, but in the rimfire rifle the trigger module is modified with some additional machining. The module that fits the (say) .308 and 5.56 versions does not simply drop in to the .22LR Rimfire version. Likewise, you can't just buy the Timney trigger for (say) the .308 rifle and expect it to fit the .22LR Rimfire version. If you want the Timney to work in the .22LR version, you have to modify it.

Why modify a trigger? I'll tell you. I like the the Timney mechanics, and Timney doesn't currently offer a trigger for the Rimfire version of this rifle, as it is different to the centerfire versions. I am impatient and resourceful, and not afraid to break stuff in the quest for improvement.

So I started with a Timney trigger for a centerfire (6.5 Creedmore in this case) that a friend of mine bought but didn't like. Got it cheap. I compared the trigger module in the .22LR Rimfire to it, and then whittled on the aluminum housing of the Timney trigger until the dimensions were close. Stuck it in the .22LR rifle and tested/tweaked/tested/tweaked until it worked properly. Took about two hours. It works just like the ones in the larger rifles - awesome.

And the cool bit: now I have the only Ruger Precision Rimfire Rifle with a Timney Trigger on this planet (well, outside the Timney R&D shop, that probably is).

I like it but if I can't recite this line

"...an elegant weapon for a more civilized age..."

about it, then it ain't worth having.

Prove you're a man and take on a grizzly with your bare hands. The beard that sprouts from your every face hole immediately after you are victorious will be truly impressive to behold.

Plus, chicks dig scars and glory lasts forever.

I'll shoehorn some more banalities in here later.

Perk - You should go on ahead and add "how Skrap views guns" to that long list of things you haven't a single clue about. If you want to learn how I view guns and thereby take that subject off the long list of things you haven't a single clue about, you can read this https://www.ubersite.com/m/128523

This post clearly and obviously inspired the school shooting that happened in Florida yesterday. You have recklessly provided instructions on how to add features to this bolt-action rifle which make it a more effective squirrel killing device, with blatant disregard for the safety of children everywhere. Nikolas Cruz obviously read this post and used these detailed instructions to do the same sort of things to the self-loading AR-15 he used. It is clear that the otherwise perfectly normal and well-adjusted Cruz was inspired - nay - radicalized by this post to abandon his comfortable fit in society, go to that school, pull that fire alarm, and use that AR-15 to callously murder and injure a whole bunch of people. This bloodbath is on you, Skrap. By making this post, you may as well have pulled that AR-15 trigger yourself. Take this -2 and stick it in your breech.

Some people may misconstrue this( due to the recent 17 dead at achool shooting in Florida), as helping idiots make dangerous weapons..

You view guns like a “ Toy” to show off, and show youmee cool, not realizing that, yes, they are guns, and yes, people are killed with them.

I had Swiss roommates in college, both were in the military( and in finance now), and they knew guns better than Oathmeal knew what sock fit on his cock, and they never bragged, showed them off, erc...

I’m pro-gun though, for the most part.. But we have to teach our kids here how and why, and when to use them, like the Swiss do.. They’ll be leas deaths, I presume.

How crass, is the American obsession with guns. Not a question, a statement.

Silvr - the suppressor is a converted (legally, with tax stamp) "dry storage kit", same OD as a Mag-Lite tube. Bought it online. Very well machined parts. I have another one that looks like this one but a couple inches longer on an AR-9 SBR. Cobbing a silencer together out of a Mag-Lite and some PVC pipe might be all Walking Dead cool but from an engineer's perspective it's not very smart.

Messmind - This rifle is legal in CA. The CA version ships with two 10-round mags instead of one 15-round mag. It's not an auto-loader so it isn't otherwise restricted. You can just go buy one.

I like that it takes 10/22 mags. Also, that suppressor looks like it was made from the body of a Mag-Lite.

My squirrel killer is still my old Springfield Model 53A - when I bother to kill the furry bastards, that is. I regularly keyhole shots with it at 50 yds. My first gun, an S'field 84C, has officially been retired. After 50,000+ rounds, it's almost a smooth-bore now and not very accurate any longer.

My plinking setup: I take downed limbs from trees and cut them into two-inch long sections. I can line up around 20-30 on a pallet stood on its side and blast away. You easily know if you hit them, it helps clean up the dead limbs in the yard and Yellow Jacket hollow-points make them explode into cool little puffs of wood fiber.

This is the easy recipe, but it is still pretty tasty. You can make your own chili recipe and just put squirrel in it instead if you'd rather. It's OK.

You'll Need:
-10 medium or 6 large squirrels, killed/skinned/cleaned/butchered properly, and the meat ground/minced very fine*
-red wine for marinade
-1 box Carroll Shelby's Original Texas Brand Chili Kit
-1 8oz can low-salt tomato sauce
-1 14 oz can red beans
-olive oil
-1 white onion, chopped fine
-4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
-1 bottle Yuengling Lager beer
-habanero-based hot sauce, to taste

In Advance:
-Put squirrel meat in airtight container and marinate in red wine for 24 hours in the refigerator

To Make:
-remove meat from marinade and drain but do not rinse
-Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until about 1/2 cooked
-add squirrel meat to onion and garlic in pan, cook meat through
-add beer and tomato sauce, allow to come to boil
-add contents of Chili Kit, allow to come to boil
-add beans, allow to come to boil, then simmer for 15 minutes

Serve:
- Bowl that squirreliciousness up and eat it! Top with cheese or raw onions or sour cream or oyster crackers or whatever you like.

*if for some reason you don't want to or don't know how to do this, you can buy squirrels already killed/skinned/cleaned for your at-home butchering pleasure. You may have to look around a bit for them, though, as they probably don't have them at Safeway or Tesco or WalMart. I don't know why not either.
