Default Winchester Apex

Picked this up a couple days ago. Should here in less than 2 weeks i would think.

Winchester Apex .45cal. Shot MAYBE 20 times total. Got a pretty good deal on it i think. Should make a fun little rifle to tinker around with and see what it can do.

Thanks chap.

Rifle will be in late next week! Cant wait to go out and shoot her.

Kinda want to kick myself in the rear end. When i sold my X-150 i had close to 300 209 primers, I dumped them all in the trash can.
Oh well, A pack of CCI's are only a couple bucks.

Hey Gander, I've got an old caplock hammer around here somewhere. You could epoxy it to the side of that thing so as to retain your dignity.

Well i need this one to play with. I want to test those 223 and 300 grain platinums with 3 pellet loads and see how they'll hold up to it.

Most of all, i want to test this 195g powerbelt that ive seen people using with 3 pellets [>:]

Just out of curiosity, is there something wrong with the Apex line? I almost bought one awhile back at a pretty good deal, but the salesman told me I would most likely have a lot of problems with it, but didn't go into details.Of course, I hadn't found this website yet, so I didn't knowwho to ask about it, and now it's gone.
