    Default Krico 0.22 restoration

    This was my father's 0.22 and I transferred it into my name. He purchased it the day he turned 21 in 1956.

    I fitted a Sig Sauer scope 3-9 x 40 scope.

    I had the wood restored by Alan Henry of Natal Gun Company.

    Alan also cut the thread for the Nielsen suppressor.

    I made the white spacer between the butt pad and the stock.

    Browning leather strap with quick release swivels.

    First photo shows what the rifle looked like when I got it.

    Beautiful. I had a krico 222 many years ago. This brings back good memories.

    Alan sure knows his way around guns. The only gunsmith that works on mine.

    His apprentice is Graham. He'll go on to be a fantastic gunsmith himself one day.

    All my shorties and rifles have been refinished by Alan and Graham. Their work is exceptional

    Here is a shot I took at 63m in windy conditions, Magtech sub sonic ammo with suppressor fitted.

    I got same results on next target, so its pretty consistent.

    Sig Sauer 3-9 scope isn't ideal for this kind of target shooting as it is at its best optically around 6x zoom.
