H&R M12 ?

  • I'm looking to get started in IR 50/50 competition and have a chance to
    pick up a H&R M12 and don't really see much info on them. Would this rifle
    be worth starting with? How do they compare to the kimber 82g
    Thanks

  • My M-12 shoots better than any of the 82-g's I've shot against.

  • Spend once cry once
    I'd go for a used BR rig - will hold it's value pretty well and shoot better (most times)
    Ammo is the real pain ;)

  • Both the 82G and H&R12 are second tier target rifles. Neither compare to even Anschutz 54 rifles. If you want a really good BR rifle plan on spending $2,000+.

  • I agree with the above.  My Annies shoot much better than my M-12, but they cost a lot more.  A custom BR .22 should shoot even better.

  • Ah, they did not cost more if you bought them at the big CMP sale a couple of years ago. My 1808 was unfired. The 2007 looked to have very few rounds through it. Probably my best buy was an unfired H&R 12 for $225. ;)

  • Thanks for all the good info guys. I would like to get into a used BR rig
    But haven't come across one yet. I do have the chance to pickup a H&R M12
    I have three of them to shoot to pick the one I like the best out of the three
    all of them shoot well but one shoots exceptionally well, I thought if I pick one
    up maybe shoot a little and do a rebarrel?

  • I am sure you already know how easy it is to adjust the head space on a 12. I corrected mine last year. It now is set to .042". It came set at .046". That one adjustment helped accuracy a good bit.

  • Joe,
    I'm not sure how you measure the headspace?

  • You use go/no go gauges. http://www.pacifictoolandgauge.com/gauges1.htm Standard .22 go is .043". Seems like no go is .048".

  • Thanks Joe,
    I'm new to the BR game I've always shot my rifles but not for the precision needed in competition. How do you adjust the headspace on the M12? I willget the go no go gauges from PT&G seems if you want
    the headspace to be .043" would you use a .044" for no go?
