    Question .22LR remington footprint action in NZ

    Hello Everyone

    .22LR ELR is getting more and more popular now. Would there be any .22LR custom action coming to NZ soon?

    Look into Voodoo? And if I'm correct Bergara is also bringing a Rem 700 footprint rimfire out.

    You mean like a Vudu? Custom action that fits rem inlet stocks. Starting to come in over here.

    They were released at the beginning of this year so I'd expect it will take time for them to arrive.

    Thanks! That certainly looks interesting to me if the price is reasonsible!

    Update:

    https://christensenarms.com/ranger-22/

    Some research suggested Christensen arms ranger22 may not share remington footprint at least it doesn't take AISC pattern magazine

    We will be testing a new one in the next couple of weeks or so. Quite similar to Stillers 2500XR. Can keep you guys informed.

    Like the old 40-x Rem 700 based .22 target rifle?

    Was trying to get hold of one of those about 5 years ago - too hard...

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more
