My Winchester dates to 1953 and was equipped with that Unertl 8X scope right from the get go! It is different from modern scopes, the eye relief and field of view are much tighter, and the cross hairs were made from Black Widow spider silk! it is VERY accurate despite it's age and isn't that sensitive to ammo!

I bought a Savage 64FXP for my wife as her first intro into firearms. She came to realize she didn't like shooting rifles.
I then bought her a S&W M&P22C and she loves shooting that.

The Savage then fell back to me since she didn't want it. It's been accurate enough with the iron sights 20-30ish yards.
I broke it down. Cleaned and tightened it up. I added a few parts I had laying around.
Need to get it dialed in but free time is hard to come by these days.
Can't really do it at the nearby indoor range because it is only 15 yrds.
This is how it sits today.

My .22 rifle is a second model DPMS Bull Barrel on an AR lower. I bought it to match the weight of my .458 upper. :)

I've tried the .22 / 5.56 inserts , but found they only gave beer can accuracy at 50 yards.:(

With the DPMS, I use old 12 ga. shotgun hulls for targets. :p
Yeah? Well I use chewed up corn kernels for targets and hit them all day long! o_O


Not really... ;):D:s0140:

I finally got a Kimber .22 conversion top end for my 1911 full size frames, and so far, it rocks! I had heard the mags can be a bit finicky, but I haven't had any issues so far! Ran about 200 rounds through it on both my Eclipse and 2011 series with a 3D printed Mag well insert, and it ran perfectly on both!

Also ran my CMMG .22 conversion in my new SBR retro AR and it also ran beautifully, very consistent hits out to 75 meters or so with out issue!
I'm all set with .22 now! :cool:

Wow, now that's a scope!!
I know zero about optics, but I'm guessing the great distance between the elements is to create the magnification ratio desired. Why such a small maintube? Probably because making really good lenses of any larger diameter was a difficult and expensive task. Who could afford to buy a $500 scope in say, 1960?
