1. For reasons unknown to us at SCC, it seems that SCC members who are AT&T users experience issues with emails and personal messages when using our forum. This is not unique to SCC and several other internet sites are reporting the same issues. Todo10, the company who helps us with the forum and hosting, have file a complaint with AT&T but we are not convinced AT&T will do anything about it. The only way around this is to register and use another email address not connected to AT&T. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause!

    Hi All,


    Beginning to sniff around an A1 .222. So far I've only seen a pic but I hope to get to see it IRL soon and even get to shoot it.

    Was wondering: what was the standard barrel length and magazine capacity on these?

    Cheers

    Depends on the model. The early sporters had 23.6" barrels. Later A-1 sporters had 22" barrels. Heavy barrel models used a 23.6", while most Mannlichers used a 20" barrel.

    It's a small world. Found an interesting A1 .222 on the national firearms' sales site here in Oz, UsedGuns. After establishing contact it turned out that the owner lived 15 minutes up the road from my home. Go figure!

    Serial number 80xxxx, one owner, about 750 rounds fired over the years. In very good condition.

    Just have to wait for the paperwork to be processed by Police Firearms Branch before I can pick it up.

    Cheers
