    AMT SMALL GAME HUNTER II

    A few months ago I stumbled on a nice AMT LIGHTNING pistol at an LGS. They told me they had it for years so they were happy to sell it to me at a discount. Gun has been reliable, flawless even and accurate




    End of last year I was discussing this with another LGS, and he quickly told me : can I interest you in the rifle from the same maker (and the same shameless copy of a very successful Ruger design).

    As an intriguing coincidence, this weapon had also sat there for years, in fact since this LGS opened many years ago. So again I got a discount, and paid exactly the same for both, $ 440.-

    I now have a nice pair of AMT weapons.

    Hoping the rifle will be as reliable and accurate as the pistol.

    Never heard of them but good luck with your .22 blasters. Looks pretty cool.

    Nice score. AMT made a lot of cool things. 22 mag pistols, 30 carbine pistols. I will always associate them with the Terminator. Gun store scene.

    Finally spent some time shooting it after a good check / clean / oil.

    Glad to say it worked flawlessly, trigger is great and it was accurate.

    Shot at 50 meters

    What is a meter?
    Why do the loudest do the least?

    I had some issues with some of the mags I possess, and I suspect it came from the stock. Plus I felt like pimping it a little so I bought an Archangel AAP1022 stock. I like the new look and the ergonomics suit me well, I have the same stock on my Norinco M 305 (M14 clone).







    Iíll try it at the range on Tuesday

    Was that an export model?

    AMT SMALL GAME HUNTER II I had never seen before, but I have seen several AMT Lightning marked rifles(10/22 copies also) that usually came in Butler Creek(or close copy) side folder stocks.

    From what I found googling about the rifle, it was available in the US market

    Now I am wondering if I have actually seen one and thought it was a Ruger since I wouldn't have necessarily noticed the lack of sights.
