  1. $61?! I got one for $45, and it has 4 shot capacity.
  2. Theoretically it makes sense. If you fix the gun in the vise, you don’t need any shims or stock at all. But I really respect experienced people’s practical opinion, and maybe in real-life situation it makes difference and Mudhen knows what he’s saying. Let’s wait to see the article.
  3. Good. I always had respect for the guy.
  4. Good point. I agree 100%. No doubt, he was better with Crosby, Stills & Nash. Better arrangements and polyphonic vocal. Now, he sucks regardless of his lyrics. Concerning the particular song, I think it p… off some people because it’s a shame to be dipped in the s… by a foreigner, especially when you know he is right.

    R1 Trigger

    Finally I got the answer from Benelli about the "improved" (4.5 lbs) trigger pull on the new R1’s. Here it is: Nothing has been changed in the trigger group of the R1 since it was introduced. They are a 2 stage trigger and average between 5-6 lbs. If yours is 7-8lbs, call our customer service and get a RA# to send it in and we will take a look at it.

  6. Aha... They lowered price to $3.64 (for regular), premium - $3.80
  7. Unfortunately, it will never be the same again. Before, we worked for living and now we live to work so somebody else can live. Actually, as always, but now it’s just too noticeable.
  8. Year ago it was 70 cents per gallon, don’t know how much is now. [ 04-20-2006, 03:13 PM: Message edited by: garren ]
  9. Sh..t. It looks like we are living in different countries Official version is: “concerns over Iran’s nuclear plans and civil unrest in Nigeria have led to record-shattering prices of oil”. I must add – …in 5 borrows of NY City. That’s the price you have to pay for loving your city
  10. Today I paid $50 to fill up my gas tank. $4.40 for gallon What’s going on in other states? [ 04-19-2006, 03:58 PM: Message edited by: garren ]
  11. No, but I would like to see R1 chambered for big game cartridges (9mm and up). You pick one: 338 Win, .375 H&H, .340 Weatherby, .350 Remington.
  12. Seems I need to be attentive too

    ah... old post. you probably already figured it out.

    Maybe it isn't SBE at all. Are you sure you don't bought a Nova?
  15. You are not paying attention to your picture. It says RIFLE. What makes you think it's smoothbore? .300 Win? .30-06? Anyway, it’s Benelli. [ 04-06-2006, 01:39 AM: Message edited by: garren ]
  16. There are different types of leases; land leases from 1 to 3 years, for season or daily hunting. Price range differs from state to state and type of hunting. You need to find/contact Landowner or Lease manager in state you are planning to hunt. Check it on web, there is a lot of information about it.

  18. Jim, I wish you are right about Hornady. I got 20 boxes of it . But I’m not so sure about outing yet. Do not exclude possibility of luck. I’ll post the Federals results when I’m ready, but as I always said – one doesn’t have to rely on somebody’s ammunition choices and results. You need to find the right/preferable ammos for your rifle by yourself. You were impressed with Tucker’s grouping, but he, as I remember, uses Remington ammos and mine, on the contrary, doesn’t like Rem. ammunition at all. So, I don’t think that anybody, even Benelli can recommend the right load for a particular rifle. Again, you have to do some tests yourself. It’s time consuming, some time disappointing, but finally your efforts will be rewarded.
  19. Well, I tried to get the maximum benefit from today’s sunny day and went to the range to test some new loads. This time, I added Winchester Silvertip to my primary choice of ammo (Hornady). Can’t say that it was the best result I managed to get from my R1, but I think it was considerably accurate at 100 yard distance for an autoloader. Next week I’ll compare these two with the Federal ammos and then finally will adjust my scope. Another thing - usually while sighting, I’m cleaning the rifle after 10~20 shots, but today I decided to push it a little bit harder to see how it will act without my help. In two hours, I put 60 rounds through it without any jamming and cycling problems.
  20. What do you mean by "has to move"? Please explain. I don't think it's normal.

    R1 Trigger

    It would be very interesting to know the outcome. Please keep us updated. How certain are you in the trigger pull difference between the rifles and is 30-06 at Cabela’s Comfortech too? [ 03-25-2006, 10:14 PM: Message edited by: garren ]

    Ultra Light

    If your primary goal is upland hunting and weight/recoil is a problem for you, you may consider the new M2 Field Comfortech -20ga. Less recoil, weight – 5,7lbs. But I have no idea when it will hit the shelves.
