removing rust

I use 0000 steel wool and oil. But I understand that bronze wool is better because it is a little more gentle than steel wool. However, I've never been able to find any bronze wool in any store.

tikka trigger

I had a look at a trigger on a M595 and on a T3. The trigger looks the same and adjusts the same on each action, down to about 1.5 pounds.

spotlight

tikka 12ga/222

You will find the tikka 12ga/222 very satisfying to shoot. I've had two. The first would put 5 shots into half an inch at 100yds (most accurate rifle I've had) and the group prints in the middle of...

17hmr

Could consider the CZ453 that comes fitted from the factory with a single set trigger. I've compared the 453 with the 452 fitted with the Brooks kit and the triggers on both were a pleasure.
