After a spell of being a MIQ prisoner, I eventually got back to NZ last December.
Current plan is to build a .270 Winchester using handloads. Along with that will
be a rifle for small stuff. A few years back I bought a cheap-as Chinese
.22magnum and took it to pieces, finished the rough metalwork and redid the stock, and it
turned into a pretty accurate little rifle. I might go to a single shot this time around.
Cheers

What single shot are you thinking of? A few pics of the redone 22 mag would show the improvments that can be made to these rifles with some paitence and elbow grease.

Gidday mate. Haven't gone into that yet, still sorting out other stuff here. I've owned 3 x .22 mags, a Stirling HB, Norinco, and a very accurate Anschutz. I no longer have any of those. Single shot mags are not exactly thick on the ground so the other choice is a b/a and I may have to pick one up and refurbish it like the Norinco. Any suggestions and what are you up to ?

For a single shot I would like to have a little martini. The most accurate 22LR I have had was a Kimber but at the moment I have a little south american semi auto.
. Have not been doing a lot on rifles over the last few years as the knifemaking has been where my main effort and interest has centered but I had a call the other night from a guy who wants a forestock made for a Lee Speed that he is waiting on to arrive.

I'll keep that in mind. Back in the late1950's I had a little Browning takedown semi-auto 22LR - used to carry it in a backpack when I was out fishing for trout. Cheers

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.
