Several years ago, Nick and I accepted an invite from a friend of the Kee family to check out his extensive gun collection. As two young pups, neither of us have amassed anything that could really be called a “collection.” Weirdly, of all the very interesting rifles he had in his collection, the one we were both drawn to was a very old Schuetzen rifle in .22 LR. Given Nick’s background shooting Olympic smallbore, it’s no surprise that he started to drool over a positional shooting rifle. Without a competition background to speak of, I just found it oddly overbuilt and heavy for a .22. It felt exactly like a big boy rifle, and that was part of the charm for me. I hadn’t thought about it for at least two years until I visited my fellow Texans at Stiller Precision during the 2016 SHOT show, and saw their very modern .22 LR action . . .
