Good luck to them... Usually Canada is more expensive due to unionization & socialism, but I will gladly take the model 93 vs the Bmag...

    Westcliffe, what scope are you planning to put on your .22 mag now?

    I have an ATN 6x Gen 3 scope on it. I would love to use my 223 or 243, but centerfire is banned at night across the state, even in the UP where the population density is close to Alaska.

    I like the round, but the rifle sucks. Interested to see if someone would build a custom rifle off the action. I know parts are non existent but after some the work I have seen by forum members anything is possible. Also, +1 on the 93 series. My 17 HMR 93GV is an amazing rifle and it only cost me 250!

    Tried to shoot today but: First, the trigger jammed and would not budge. Second, after fiddling I got it to move and tried again to shoot. This time, the trigger moved but no click-bang happened. I discovered that the "cock-on-close" bolt wasn't cocking. The saga continues. Sigh....

    OK...my bad. I've got to retract my statements above. The problem was one of my creation. I had used the Accu-Trigger pressure adjustment and tuned it down to a low pressure...about 2#. As it turns out, when the trigger pressure is dialed down that low, the sear fails to engage when closing the bolt. Once I increased the required pressure a bit (set to 3 pounds now), the firing pin releases when the trigger is pulled.

    I wasted all of yesterday because of an error I made. Next Saturday is a possible day---cold but maybe no rain. I'll try again.
