Here’s the setting for the test:
And, here’s the proof in the pudding:
Please pardon my goofy grin. I’m not sure what’s up with that. Here’s the close up of the target in question:
That’s at 100-yards, prone. Given a little more time with the gun, and some high-quality ammunition, I’m confident that I can tighten up that group quite a bit. I really see no reason that this should be any less than a sub-minute rifle. It looks like she’s pulling slightly to the right, but it got to the point that I didn’t want to mess with the sight adjustment any more for the weekend. The gun shoots like a dream, and I should have done this modification a long time ago.
Yesterday, I mounted a single rail on the bottom of the handguard. I’m going to have to get some better handguards to get where I am trying to go with this thing. I still don’t think I want to do a quad rail, as I like the low size and weight of the plastic. At any rate, I’m having fun, and that’s really the point of the thing. I wish the antis could figure that one out…
