Post by Lazz »

Im looking for a 22 Hornet barrel for a TC.
Ebay has finally gotten to the point I avoid it.

I asked the question on another site and there were 2 suggestions... Accurate shooter, cast boolits

Can you suggest a place to search or watch?

Long ago someone had access to several 22 Hornet factory seconds. I got one for a ridiculous price compared to new. Still works great. I had to buy the bolt, bolt spring, and rear sight, so maybe not so good a deal. :roll:

I stopped in a a gunshop up in TN and they only had 1 box of 22 Hornet on the shelf. There was a sticky note on it, with the Statement ...
22 Hornet is not 22LR!
I told the lady at sales counter that I would buy that box if I could have the note with it! 22 Hornet is a sweet round!
