Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. As much fun as you can have in .22 long rifle


    400 quid, with two mags, sliding stock and hard stock.

    25 round mags.... a few cycling issues so recommend sub sonic or German ammo.

    Doesn't like Eley or Remington. Once the ammo issues are started, standby to spend 20 quid every time you shoot it.

    More than capable of key holing a full mag at 30 yds.
  2. and melting the tits of any nearby mongs
  3. Is it legal in mainland uk?

    Ooo gun porn.
  5. yes it is legal, the 'silencer' is just an extension of barrel to make it legal. there is a full size AK47 coming out soon from a different company
  6. Silly question, and I know you've thought of this, but when you say "Eley", you do mean "Eley Semiauto" (round-nosed bullet) rather than the newer semi-wadcutter shape? And the "Pistol" variant (310ish m/s rather than the Rifle stuff at 330ish m/s)?

    (Having said that, of course you do. Meanwhile, who'd stuff Eley Tenex down a blowback firearm? Although it would be fun to turn up at their test range to carry out batch selection with one :twisted: )

    I havent ever managed to get on with Eley ammo. For serious comps I liked Lapua Dominator and for practising with non target rifles I use CCI green tag. There is no earwax masquerading as bullet lube. It really used to foul the extractors on the martini actions.

    The makers state this is will have cycling/feeding issues with "target" ammo - it is recommended to stick to stuff with a bit more oomph and less wax lube.
  9. Can you get a real moderator for it??

    No reason why not!
  11. Looks like just what I need for the purpose of controlling vermin...
  12. Ironically, I've always found Lapua to be much dirtier than Eley. I used it for a couple of years in the mid/late 1990s (after Eley tried to cut costs, and ended up cutting corners; I was going to the test range and beating every batch that Eley had, with a random batch of Lapua Midas).

    However, since Eley sorted out their production line - when they started calling the silver bullet line "EPS" - I went back and got some stonkingly good batches for my rifle; out of the vice, my selected batch was getting an average of 13mm edge-to-edge for a 10-round group. I've stuck to Eley since, and managed to get similar results. They even managed to move the factory without compromising performance; impressive.

    You may notice that Lapua doesn't "smell funny" the way it used to...

    PS IIRC the waxy cr*p only ever appeared on Eley's cheap stuff - the black bullets. I don't find their silver bullets (Tenex, Match) noticeably more waxy than Lapua or RWS.
  13. there were various reviews saying its not the most well built of weapons.
    infact somebody claimed it was more or less an airsoft gun with a semi auto action stuck i it :twisted:
  14. Its a fun gun, its never going to enter a precision match or be relied upon as a weapon. its a 400 quid toy, albeit a firearm in .22 long rifle.

    Geco ammo works well, but I've been told they aren't around anymore.
  15. I like the look of it, but got rid of my my 1022 cause it wasnt getting used.
