    I finally got my TUFF-22 ordered.

    I'm going with the MDT chassis and a KIDD barrel and bolt. I'm hoping to end up with something suitable for pounding tacks and this should at the very least be a solid set-up

    Sounds like a winner.

    It arrived today and I’m a bit disappointed in Dlask, and will be writing them. You’d think that a detailed email, with parts breakdown and web links to their product pages, along with a phone call follow up, would ensure an error-free experience, but apparently not.

    They gave me a random receiver instead of #72 out of the first batch of 100 that I had requested more than 2 years back. They let the first 100 folks choose one, and they last week confirmed 72 was still held for me.

    Ok, not a deal breaker.

    But I was sent and charged for an entire AR buffer assembly instead of the requested tube and castle nut, all that I needed for the chassis, which would have been half the price of what I got invoiced for.

    And they forgot to send me a mag, as was stated I would get in the phone call.


    I put it all together, since I’m not dicking around returning the receiver at this point, but I’m going to be looking for some satisfaction.

    I'm going to try pillar bedding before I drop $600 more on a LSS

    I took my Mk-II BTVLSS out of the stock to adjust the trigger (disappointed that it was already as light as it would go) and afterwards I could not get the groups inside of a quarter at 25m

    I tried different torque values, and when nothing helped I figured I must have compressed the wood a bit.

    I put a thin washer under each lug, set the screws to about 9 inch pounds, and it's back to how it was.


    The TUFF is pretty amazing for a semi auto. Now that the barrel has settled in, it's turning in groups comparable with my bolt guns. The trigger group is the weak point. I felt it was pretty good in my old 10/22, with its VQ innards, but on the new rifle, and after a few nice .22s in the past couple years, it's coming up short. Hopefully Aztech can get KIDD units in

    DLASK has not answered my emails, BTW - so pretty poor after sales support

    I like the MDT chassis for a couple reasons - I like AR ergonomics, and I like being able to set whatever I want for LOP. I find even "adult" sized rimfires to be short in that dept - I have a thick slip on recoil pad on my B22, just to get it (mostly) set up right.

    MDT has their annual sale on. I bought a chassis and some discounted blemished attachments for my B22 Savage.

    That’ll be my birthday/Xmas gift to myself and my last gun related purchase until there is some certainty in my future

    Man you folks have some fancy stuff. I have a BSEV with a Bushnell Elite on it. The thing is a freaking laser. I can't imagine something more accurate. Wow!

    I shot the B22 today, fresh in its chassis. I had cleaned the barrel, since I was getting stuck cases, probably due to grease buildup in the chamber, so it took most of a box to settle in again.

    I do not know how much improvement is due to the chassis versus how much is due to the improved ergonomics making the triggerman more consistent, but so long as I held it together I could cut ragged 5 shot holes at 25, little bigger than a thumb tack. I was also putting 3 in the same general hole more often than coincidence should allow, before 4 and 5 would open it up.

    Most notably uncalled fliers were much much reduced. Again maybe I’m just more aware of sloppy technique whereas before I might have blamed the gun. Certainly I was shooting better a hundred rounds in versus when I began (not including the fouling shots in that number).

    It might be worth tossing a few more X on in an optic. It’s 9x now - a bushnell AR (.223) scope.

    On the scope front that glass is noticeably clearer and brighter than the 18x Banner on my 10/22. I did not think to back that one off to 9x to compare at the same magnification, but the Banner was like looking through a tobacco sooted window. Not horrible on its own, but very stark when switching guns.

    I have a 12x Banner of a different series on my MKII that I liked enough to prompt the purchase of the second one, though I don’t think I ever did a head to head with it next to the AR scope.
