    Howa 1500 Walnut 2506 and a BSA Ralock .22

    Hi All,

    Decided I need to thin the safe down to the ones the wife knows about...

    Howa 1500 Walnut Blued in 2506, Has had a bedding and trigger job done on it and it shoots very well. It will clover 3 shots in one group at 100m easily, I even had some non firearm friends shooting it at a 20cm gong a few weeks back at 190m and they all hit it first shot. $650 for the bare rifle, Scope, suppressor and ammo can be negotiated with the buyer.

    BSA Ralock .22 rimfire. This is a very interesting little rifle, best way to explain it is to show a video of me using it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8quMWR_4Gk&t=32s. It was cut down and recrowned by a gunsmith to be just above legal length and an over-barrel suppressor built using the insides of a SAK suppressor and some carbon fiber tube, it it very very quiet with the only sound really being the mechanical noise of the hammer as it shoots from an open bolt. Its a take down (flip of a lever has it in 2 bits) 9 shot semi auto with a tube mage that goes up the butt, the empty brass is all held on board until the next reloading cycle. Its very accurate shooting pretty impressive groups of less than 2" at 100m and 1" at 50m, the gong in the pic was shot at 70m and there are 9 CCI std shots in that group. The rifle is at least 60 years old and does show some wear and patina on it, the safety tends to set itself on sometimes but not if you keep your thumb on it while shooting. I really like this little rifle but hunting with a semi auto just doesn't sit well with me. $500 for the rifle, scope (Falcon M5) will be negotiable to the buyer as it fits the rifle quite well.

    I picked up some PPU for $35 a box and they worked well, Hornady is more like $45-$50 for a box. Both seemed to group about the same.

    That Howa is so bloody tempting! That would make the perfect donor rifle for a project I've wanted to do for a while, and that is make a .257 Roberts Ackley Improved.

    Free shipping. I have someone wanting the Sig scope on the Howa but I am leaving it on there until someone doesn't want it.
