I got this item because I wanted a new rear sight farther back on the gun. Over all I'm happy with the product it's pretty sturdy so far after 200 rounds it doesn't have any wobble in it. The only down side to this is it makes the gun shoot high with just the peep sight in my case 1 1/2' high at 30 yards. The rear peep gives a nice sight picture and did in fact tighten my groups up but I hate the fact that it makes the gun shoot high.

As far as mounting optics on the gun it's a decent rail first I used a cheap NcStar red dot that has 4 different retical options and it wouldn't zero worth a fart so then I borrowed a Bushnell TRS-25 from a friend and I got it to zero at 50 yards and was shooting about 1 to 1 1/2" groups out of the gun.

So over all I like the rail it's a decent rail but the rear peep sight is not all that great because it makes the gun shoot high just because of how high the rail itself it in comparison to where the back sight was.

Price Payed: $58.00

Pros: Nice solid rail good for mounting different optics
Cons: The included rear peep sight makes the gun shoot high.
Synopsis: Made sturdy and easy to install but the rear peep makes the gun shoot rather high.
