I went a little crazy at the gun shop today. I went to pick up my Browning Stainless Stalker 22-250 with Christensen Arms carbon fiber barrel an Leupold VX-IIc 6-18x40 scope. When I came in to pay, Ed said that he had something to show me before I left. Well, he had just gotten 2 Benelli M1 Super 90s and he didn't have to convince me to take it home. Here is the haul from today.

And now a question. I was under the impression that I could [b]not[/b] put a longer mag extension on the M1. Is that correct?

Mojo, all I will say publically is that they cost me a whole lot of pretty pennies. [:D]

Dang!

I was hoping you were posting pics of a new sweetie of the two-legged variety.

Bring them to ETH's and we will try that 22-250 out at 400 yards against propane tanks.

The trigger on the Browning is pretty nice right out of the box. It has absolutely no creep and an crisp break at 4.25 pounds. It's still a little heavy but I think I can get used to it. Oh, the trigger on the Benelli is very nice too.

you f*&king bastard I hate you.

I need to get a higher paying job damnit [>Q]

hold on maybe I'l just use my enlistment bonus to buy and m16 [:D].


by the way do you actually have any reason to have a rifle like that or a shot gun in that configuration. because if so more power to you, but if not [b]excellent[/b]. like I alway say it not that I have a reason to buy a .50 caliber, because thats not the point. it's more like I have no reason not to have a 50 [:D].

excellent find.

Actually. my job doesn't pay enough to support my gun habit. I just got a check from State Farm for my car that was totalled.

Oh yeah, I don't have a need for these firearms in these configurations. I just wanted them. [:D]

Bunghole - I'm with ah1z, I hate you too[:D]

How much does the Browning weigh and how does it shoot? I always wanted one with the carbon fiber barrel, but I figured it would be too light to get really good accuracy.

Very nice for a day in the shop.  That is a bunch of money to throw down in one day on non-Class 3 stuff!  Good to hear about the trigger on your Browning.  My Stalker 7 mag breaks like a glass rod at 4 lbs.  I would like to bring the weight down a little bit but I don't want to mess with it.

Edited to add: Nice tile BTW.  Just helped my brother in law, or rather he helped me, install [i]very[/i] similar tile in his kitchen.

The bathroom scale shows a weight of 6 lbs. I don't know how accurate that is though. It does feel very light.

Actually I don't think I could have even bought a Vector Uzi for what I have in this deal. I got a really good deal on the Browning.

Does that 6lbs include the scope?

That would be great for long hikes.

There are no such limitations stated in the 2nd Amendment.

You are rich in more than mere money, Sir

The M1 is a gem
The rifle a work of art

Some say you can not buy happiness.
I say you have to buy it in two parts.

Part # 1 can be many things but they must have part # two to make you happy

Part # 2 can only be two things AMMO or GASOLINE

The A-Bolt's trigger is adjustable! You may be able to lighten it by turning a small screw that's accessible only after removing the triggerguard. It should be in the manual.

I know Brownings aren't a big hit with the tactical crowd but IMHO they shoot very well.

Anybody else ever miss-spell tactical as tacticle. I gotta get my head out of the sewer.

You are right.  I had seen that screw before but was not sure what it adjusted.  I'll have to try it.

Thanks for the tip about the trigger adjustment. I ran it all the way in and the pull is 2 lbs. or less.

I've been hiding out down here in South Austin...We're all here 'cause we're not all there![BD]  Quite a few Austinites on the board, but dang it's hard to get'em to go shoot'n.  Worse then herding cats I tell ya!  The only one who I've actually been able to hook up with is Maddog50, and that was only once!  If everything works out I should be able to go to ETH's place, but there are quite a few sockets, sprockets, and springs, that need to be adjusted, timed, and greased before I can commit to going there.
