Shoot... I haven't seen a 10/22 in weeks. Last time was at a show a month ago (Rochester, NY) and a Mannlicher-stocked model was up around $700+. A Takedown was at $500-600.I just snooped WA state armslist and a 10/22 is going for $400..a NIB 10/22 takedown for $800...how are the prices in your area...Now I don`t feel bad for the $219 I paid for mine new
Like he said.I ordered 16 Tapco 30rd AK mags on 12/20/12 a day after the panic buy started.Took a month to get my mags.Payed $6.95 ea for them and see scalpers asking up to $50 ea for them today.Things should go back to normal, the market is in short supply and it is a sellers market. things should recover in 4 months to a year or so. i know most of the companies that make AR parts will not take any new orders for the next 12 months. That being said people have order a lot of Merch that they have to sell once they get it.
In the mean time contact your state and federal representatives and tell them what is on your mind!
Hoppes 9 or your favorite solvent, run a sopping wet patch thru the barrel and let it soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Then dip brush in solvent and run thru barrel 4 to 5 times. Run dry patches thru it. Repeat as many times as necessary. Mine doesn’t get that dirty after several hundred rounds over a few weeks of time with no cleaning in between.Let me hear your input on proper cleaning.
My understanding was that you should use hoppes solvent or some other solvent, I also use M-Pro7 and CLP, followed by dry patches with a jag. After cleaning i wet a patch with gun oil and run it through the barrel a few times.
I soon came to realize that this gun had been shot a lot.
I used the wire brush wetted with solvent and went up and down the barrel about 10-15 times, followed by 6-10 dry cotton patches.
I did that 7 times and the patches still came out black!
