TrueDoubleTaper Posted January 22, 2008 Share Posted January 22, 2008 Saw a thread on 22 cal steel challenge guns and I just finished mine and wanted to put it up. I guess it is not completely finished, it still needs to be coated and it may be the recipient of some cuts to make it look better.... I use this for practice when trying new things, different types of movement, etc, as it is much cheaper to shoot than a full blown race gun. It then doubles as my 22 steel gun! You can spend all day shooting it and only spend 20 bucks on ammo. With component prices out there, I figured the gun would pay for itself in a few months!!! I custom built a slide racker for it to match up with my open guns, mounted it to a 2011 Aluminum frame (Total gun weight is 34.5 oz with steel comp, 32 oz with Al), Milled some custom swenson safeties, Made some major modifications to improve extraction and ejection, and even made a custom ramp for the barrel that feeds the 22 cartriges without damage to the rounds and prevents any feed malfunctions. Threaded the barrel and put a threaded sleeve in the comp so I can screw on a piece that will make it really fun to shoot. Just need to finish the federal OK for that one. Hope you like it, and hopefully it gives a few of you ideas for your own. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
