    I'll show you mine, will you show me yours? :p

    There seems to be lots of folks buying these, and aside from the Colt/Umarex, most are getting good results in terms of accuracy and reliability. I've bought and played with quite a few, and they can be a lot of fun... some even make good trainers for their center-fire cousins.

    Who threaded the barrels for you on the S&W's? I am looking to get mine threaded for a muzzle brake.

    Thanks,

    Pete

    I'll just have to suffer with my Colt/Umarex. Wife to the camera so no pic right now. It shoots well with CCI and Plinks like hell with Federal Bulk. Harder to clean than the Smith, but I like it. Rapid fire 30 rounds at 100 yards about a 8-9" group would love to see what she would do with a scope, but I want one gun without a scope. Maybe a red dot. 50 yard drills racing against my bud with a 10-22 shooting 5 Clay pigeons each is a hoot. We do that a lot even out to 100 yards I shoot the Colt better at 100 than I do at 50. It's way too much fun and cheap to shoot.

    I like your collection, when I grow up maybe I can do the same, I'm only 47.:happy0001:

    Mine aren't actually threaded... I simply cheated a bit.... I made these custom bushings... they are simply a copper union (1/2”) that has been cut in half and split lengthwise. I put one at the muzzle and one about ¼” forward of the rear edge of the flash hider. They made the CAR-15 long flash hider from Midway fit snug to the barrel. I also drilled and tapped the flash hider for a 6/32 set screw, which bears against the rear bushing. The copper doesn't harm the finish (I used a bit of Break-free when sliding them on) and they haven't shot loose yet.

    Nice collection there! I have a S&W 15-22 still new in my safe, going to break it out at Christmas when I'm visiting the family farm. Since you've got several different sight options, which do you prefer/recommend?

    Honestly, I like them all!

    I like the open sights, but I'm quicker with the red-dot and more precise with the scope.

    In general the open sights get used for plinking, the red-dot for bunnies, and the scope for squirrels.

    If I had to use only one, it would be the red-dot.
