    Stirling model 20 .22lr

    Can't justify two .22's right now; saving up for a house. This one proved reliable for a couple years but recently I've had two slamfires; one where I stuck a round in the chamber and then tried to let the bolt go forward without a mag in it (which is understandable as the mag was not there to slow the bolt down as it went forward, i've heard this can even happen with M14's) and another where I tried to chamber the first round from the mag, with the mag inserted and it went off immediately. I can't be bothered mucking around trying to get it fixed and I'm not happy with the safety aspect of it at the moment. $150 shipped (you'd pay half that for a brand new magazine these days, so think of it as an extra mag and some spare parts.)
