How To Lick Kick

(Continued, from page 42) .300 or .375 heavy magnum. I doubt very much if a shooter could ever get a custom gun made that will exceed the dollar value that is in a Winchester, Remington, Savage, or Marlin factory made gun but I do believe that, in most cases, factory stocks can be vastly improved to the individual's fit and comfort. These stocks are necessarily a compromise to try to fit, as closely as possible, all shooters, using all types of sights. However, if a shooter buys a factory gun...

Savage

he's in the sights of your Savage 340 Ask a good hunter how to spell accuracy. He'll tell you S-A-V-A-G-E.

It's priced so moderately, you can have a Savage and a good scope, too, for what you'd expect to pay for a rifle alone And why Because only Savage specialized manufacturing methods can turn out rifles of such extreme accuracy at such...

Hunters went for the bobs, The quail hunting was at best only fair because of a long drought, but all the students got some shooting.

Service Armament Co S Esst Fort Lee Ro Bogota New Jersey

Using a piece of bronze stock, I drilled a hole down its length, drilled another smaller hole into the large bore at right angles to it at its depth, and cut it to scale size. It was then chucked in the jewelers lathe and the open end turned down to a cannon muzzle for a distance of 1 4. I then clamped it in a swivel vise sketched a design around its entire surface, and with a small hammer and small chisel and a lot of light tapping, removed enough metal to change its shape to that...

Experienced Hunter And Gun Crank Tells How Stock Design Can Reduce Bruising Rifle Recoil

Ardesa Outfitter Rifle

AS A RIFLEMAN and experimenter, as well as a hunter, . I have always been interested in why some guns kick and others don't. After some years of trial and study. I decided that objectionable kick in a rifle is caused largely by the design, shape, and fit of the stock. It has little to do with gun weight, or even with load power. A good illustration of this occurred one evening after dinner at the ranch, when my guest and I headed for the range to sight in his new gun. Targets were set up, John...
