#4064 need help finding a cocking piece for my 591 bolt

Posted by JFK52 on 15 January 2016 - 01:53 PM

Numrich has the entire striker assembly of which the cocking piece is one part. I bought the complete 591 striker assembly for $38.00. A lot more expensive than the cocking piece which sells for $6.60. Only no one has the cocking piece in stock. Since my 591 is my daily varmint rifle, I am glad to get in back into service when the parts arrive from Numrich.

#4106 Interest level in new plastic magazines?

Posted by Gary W on 13 February 2016 - 11:18 AM

I apologize, I meant one of those copy machines that makes plastic parts. I know nothing about them but have heard that they work pretty good and are coming down in price. The guy said you can apply a hardener for extra strength.

#3377 Bolt installation tip--eliminate the aggravation...

Posted by Issa Akhbar on 26 March 2013 - 08:29 AM

Most already know this, and I'm really not trying to be a smart-onager, but for those still fighting with the aggravating tendency of the bolt head to roll over when installing it in the receiver....just point the bolt straight down, align the slots, hold the rifle muzzle straight down also, then slide the bolt into the receiver. The bolt head can't roll over if gravity is working for you instead of against you... :D

#2313 Here's my 591

Picked this up years ago at a local gun show for a song. I love the wood and finish and that it doesn't have a mark on it. To be honest I don't think it has ever been fired so I need to find a beater I can shoot.

#2298 damage from my 5mm

Posted by Matt5MM on 03 March 2012 - 07:32 AM

The scope I am using is a Nikon Scope Prostaff 3-9X40. I know its a center fire Riflescope but I went through about 6 differnt scopes before I just slapped on this one. BSA, Bushnell, Leupold and other Rimfire scopes just didn't get the grouping I was looking for. I had this as a back-up for my 7MM and just got so frustrated that I just put it on one day and took it to the range and low and behold I was shooting 1/4" 5 shot groups at 75 and 100 yards. Funny thing is that I won 50 bucks that day from a guy shooting a 17hmr. He asked me what I was shooting, afterwards he started poking fun at my 5MM (He had never heard of it). We shot two 5 shot groups one at 75 other at 100 yards and the tightest group would win the money. He was shooting a Ruger 77 with Elite 3200 on it. I smoked him. I knew then this scope was the one.

#4170 Hello the camp

Hi to all.  I am a new member and a fan of the 5 mm rim fire.  I have owned one for about 3 years now and have found it to be the perfect shoot and scoot woodchuck rifle.  For longer range woodchuck shooting I typically use a 722 .222, also a favorite but much heavier than the 581.  I hope to contribute to this forum and I know I will learn a lot from reading and listening.

Finally put this thing back together. Couldn't get the stock finish I wanted. Not 100% satisfied, but I can live with it for now or at least until I put a few more rounds through it.

Cerakoated the steel, Timney trigger, BKL mount, old Redfield 3-9x widefield scope and refinished the stock.

Now to get out and shoot!

#3578 591 Magazines

Posted by reelman1 on 13 September 2013 - 07:24 PM

I am thinking a pvc prototyping printer may be the way for someone who has one, to scan a mag, and then start printing them. Just a thought I am thinking the aluminum ones were pretty much pie in the sky at retail anyway.

#3257 couldn't stand it any longer

Posted by ohiomuskyhunter on 27 February 2013 - 11:15 AM

I fought the urge as long as I could, but I broke down and had to order a 23" contender barrel in 5mm. Unfortunately its been raining since I received it, but I did manage to squeeze off a few shots yesterday between downpours, so far I'm extremely pleased. I Thought I was going to post a pic but appearantly I don't remember how. I'll post pics after I figure it out Posted Image

#3037 Largest game taken with 5mm?

Posted by reelman1 on 07 January 2013 - 05:00 PM

Beowulf is more better for piggies. Realize it's the other end of 5, but still. Well known writer made the brag[(?)my take on an idiot] a few years ago that more deer had been moonlighted and taken during the day with headshots from a .22lr than any other caliber.
