I did not notice this while at the store. When I used a spirit level,the scope base (the top of the receiver that has the two pairs of filler screws for mounting a scope) is canted about 1-2 degrees to the left. Does anyone know if this is how the rifle is made? I am using iron sights and it is shooting high to the left.
Hiwall, you are right. The rifle receiver is true. Apparently it is only an optical illusion. I compared a new one at Walmart and another at Cabela's and they are identical to mine. I have made adjustments since then and the grouping is better. Thanks.
