Regular barrel, heavy barrel was an extra $100+, and i want a cheap gun to carry arround the farm
I order the spring from MCARBO was shipped on th 18th, still not here. Nothing like the good old USPS. (sorry MM)
Can you put a boyd stock on these guns to church em up a bit?
How hard is it to change them out? Never done it before.
I just ordered a couple triggers from MCARBO today, one for me and one for a buddy. Hopefully they get here by Saturday.
Boyd's are usually drop in, you shouldn't need to do anything other than unscrew 3 screws, take the barreled action out of the old stock, put it in the new stock and screw it in. Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.
After I asked I went and looked it up. Doesn't seem to terribly difficult. I have an extra 25-06 laying around that I want to play with, so I'll probably order one in the next few months.
Bought a Boyd's for a Rem700 sps that I just couldn't get to shoot with the flimsy stock it came with. Dropped it in the Boyd's and glass bedded it, went from softball sized groups to cloverleafs. Gotta admit, I'm a fan especially for the price.
I ordered on the 16th they shipped the 18th received the 26th at my office, will install tonight. I had it shipped to work and I was off the last 2 days.
Do they need to be pillar and glass bedded? Or can you just drop em in a go? Do you think you would have had the same accuracy from the rifles if you didn't glass bed it?
I think you'd probably be fine even without the bedding. The stock came with enough clearance that the barrel was free floated which I think is probably all that I needed and everything else fit without any inletting or anything. The glass bedding was more of a "meh, why not" addition.
Installed the trigger kit last night. There was a significant reduction in pull weight and over travel. I think it was well worth the $15.
The rifle that rides around with me on the farm is a .22 mag. It used to be a .22 LR and someone bored it out and did a crappy job. After you shoot it the casing swells and you have to pull it out with pliers or we use a nutcracker. In fact that is the name of the rifle, the nutcracker. Maybe it's about time to upgrade so I can kill the vermin more betterer and more deader.
What ammo are you using? I had real problems with a couple of brands of 22 mag. in a 3 different guns, CCI or Hornady are by far more reliable and resistant to case swelling. Whatever you do don't try sellers and Beloit if you have problems with sticking. They stick in about everything.
I got a Boyds stock for my sons Axis in .308. The magazine didn't fit, had to do a little scraping/sanding so it would fit deep enough for the retaining tab to snap into place.
I took the kid to Cabela's in Rogers, AR a couple years ago for a similar deal. We looked at it really closely and everything felt "loose". The bolt wasn't tight and the trigger & trigger guard felt flimsy. Right beside the Axis was a bunch of Ruger American rifles. We picked up that and the difference was night & day. It was about $160 more, but for the quality, it was easy to justify paying extra.
I can see getting the Axis for a truck gun, but to hunt with year after year, the Ruger American was a better buy.

I agree, but for a truck gun that I don't want to worry about getting roughed up or possibly stolen. A $169 gun definetly fits that criteria.
