Rimfire roundup #9

Here we go with the 9th. edition of rimfire roundup for your perusing pleasure! Not too many entries this roundup, but what is lacking in quantity is made up for in quality.

Let's get started!

Joe at Play One On TV bought a Ruger MkII for Apri l15th. Buy A Gun Day, and in this case, he was actually buying back one he used to own. It's been set up with several major improvements, and if you are considering tricking up your Mk. II, you should go have a look!

Chris Byrne, The Anarchangel, has Some Notes on the Walther P-22, including some hints on re-assembly that you might just find handy.

If you own one, or if you are considering getting one of these beauties, you should read through his post.

After reading what Chris has to say, you should drop by Blognomicon for even more info on the Walther P22.

Depending on where you live, you may be well advised to NOT set up your Walther P22 as pictured!

When it comes to classic beauties, Kim at The Other Side of Kim certainly has an eye for picking them! In this case, it's the Colt Diamondback chambered .22LR.

Who wouldn't love to have one of these!

If you are considering a rifle for a less than full sized shooter, and are looking to step up a bit from a basic bolt action trainer to something a little more advanced, Fug at Fugger Nutter has a suggestion for you, the lever action Henry youth model .22 rifle.

Here's his review on the Henry Youth Model lever action rifle.

Like I said, it's a short roundup, but some very nice guns! If you have recently done a post on your blog about something or other rimfire related and would like to see it mentioned in a future Rimfire Roundup, please email me the link, and be sure to mention Rimfire Roundup in the title.

In the Winter, when things are a bit slower, I have the time to cruise the gun blogs looking for rimfire posts, but once the matches get going and I'm shooting in one or two matches every weekend I just don't have the time, so I am counting on you sending them in.

Thanks to all who sent in submissions, now get out there and go shooting!

Any recommendations on the 'basic bolt action trainer'? I got a five year old I am contemplating taking to the range with me....

Dan: Take a look at Fugger Nutter's for his article on Youths and Guns.

Great roundup!
I may have to put my MK II in the next one.
It's had some mods recently...

Kudos on the roundup! It may not be the biggest carnival out there, but I can honestly say I read every single article. Can't say that about most of the other carnivals.
