I know that these things have a reputation for being not very inherantly accurate. Will it have a chance of being accurate enough to possible shoot a deer in the neck at 100yds?
Secondly, I will have to put a rail on this thing I am guessing to put a scope on it. Anybody have a specific recommendation on one?
I don't expect this to be any sort of a long range rifle, but I would be happy if it was proficient at 200yd.
Any input or opinion would be appreciated. I could probably just shoot it with peep sights too, but I would feel a little more comfortable with it with a scope I guess.
Yes, you're crazy, but it's a good
I'd go with that simmons scope , or one similar to it would match the
capabilities of the rifle, IMO, but what are you
doing about length of pull?-
The minis I've tried have all had very short stocks, which isn't bad on a
carbine, but can be very tough on accurate distance shooting.
