Well here is the first Range Report :P I am liking this Rifle, it needs the Stock bedded and a Trigger Job Woa is it heavy and making me pull my shots horizontally :oYa' darn near need two men and a small boy to pull that thing :rolleyes: But I will not be sending it back, I will deal with the short comings myself.I did not have any Mag issues, it fed great. I did have one Misfire, but I'm going to blame the Ammo.I fired a total of about 150 rd.I am useing a Simmons ATV 4.5-14, It is a good scope but this rifle deserves better glass.I may mount my Elite 4200 4-16She likes Fed V-Max and CCI V-Max bestAs far as Accuracy goes, Yippy :D First two are at 50yd., Second two are at 100yd.All groups were 5 shot'sSquirrel's BewarePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

16x is as big as I want to go.I want better optic's, The Simmons is very clear and works perfect but the Cross Hairs are alittle to big.

Okay-I'll take it back now!

I thought you might say that :rolleyes:

You missed the dime and the nickle :rolleyes: real nice :D
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Yeah, Sterling can shoot when his guns are working. But he's shy about hitting the Bull's-eye! :huh:

That's the hard part, just missing it enough to scare it. Extra points for style.I have a large sheet of copper at my uncle's that I made when I was a kid shooting my J.C. Higgins .22. My grandfather traced a face outline on it and had me shoot the traced line. It came out really neat I want to find it again and bring it home to hang in my office.

Sterling, I looked up my Lincoln Rifle Club Newletter and it specifically states first Thursday of every month is Lincoln Police Department All Day Training. :) See I was right and I almost believed you. :D :blink:
