    Wolverine 303

    Post by Squirrel on Sun Sep 22, 2013 11:58 am

    Well, it's been a long time coming but I finally got my Wolverine 303 up and shooting good. And I do mean good!

    My problem with the AG was that I really didn't have the time nor place to locate a place I could set the darn thing up. My goad was to set it up for 50 yards plus on a zero. I just couldn't do that around my parts so I ended up having someone else do it. Good thing I did too as Will from Saddle Mountain Gunsmith found a few flaws from the assembly line he adjusted/repaired, etc. I also had an extended arm Bi Pod put on it thinking I'd need it while still hunting.

    But I've rethought that now 'cause, folks, let me tell you, this is a BIG AG. It's a tree limb if you want to know the truth. But my gosh, this thing is accurate! I found the first zero just happened to be around 25 yards or so. I don't think I'll ever end up accidentally getting closer than that to the hog I dream of one day taking out with it. According to Will, anything between 50 and 60+ yards is a dead on shot too.

    I've always had an aversion to electronics in an air gun. To me, and I only speak for myself as I'm sure others don't care one way or the other, because to me, and I do stress *ME* it's like cheating.

    I think I'll end up getting that RS 2 in 9mm and let Will do his magic with it and call it quits on the collection. Now I have  a RS 1 in 22 (my go to squirrel popper) that has been highly modified for sound, for accuracy and a host of other things I can even begin to list here. Then there is my .22 Infinity that is pretty much the same way. Then I've got a .22 Infinity coverted to a .25 caliber and to me it's a work of pure art. Certainly a work of cost! He, he!

    So now, I've got four of them. I've sold off the others. My goal was to cover a certain caliber range for reasons of my own. It took some time and a lot of mistakes by yours truly that saw me spending a lot of bad after bad decision even with a gun smith to help me make the AGs better. So now, I have these four and I am happy to have them. I do think that when time and cash allow, this next RS 2 will be the last one I get. I'm going to follow a rule I've seen a lot of you and others out there stipulate: Full collection means that if one is added then one from collection has to go.

    This Wolverine is dead, dead, dead on! I mean hole in hole! I can even make it go just off the last hole a little to make sure that the last shot I took was actually where I was aiming. Now that is something, eh? But, of course, I was only using 25.5 yards. I can wait to get it out some place where I can test out the 50 to 60 yard accuracy. I figure the distances of 50 to 60 is still enough ft lbs of energy to, with proper shot placement, take out a hog or something bigger.

    But it does have a slight kick to it. It's something else, this one. I've decided to take all that don't need off of it to lighten it up some and just deal with a sling. I'll always find, or be able to find, something lean it on if I can't do a free hand shot, which, by the way, I'm pretty darn good at, if I do say so my self.

    Well, I had some time.

    PS
    Tom or Guy, one of you guys make sure this topic is NOT locked, okay? It would appear to me to be that way and I don't want others to think that. Mind the favor?

    Thanks all. I said I'd let on about my Wolverine when I got it finished and had the time. What little I have right now is dealing with a passing 81 years young better friend I have and some probate issues with my late father's estate and the really expensive guy I have working on my house to get the wife and I ready for retirement.

    You guys all take care! Straight shooting to you all!
