Awesome. Looks like a nice gun. I love the photos through the scope. I'm looking forward to seeing how it shoots at the range.

That's Terrible! Shooting the kids Piggy Bank for practice! HA!

Nice little rifle and I am sure she will shoot great. It probably has a 1:12 twist? So if it does? Do not shoot anything in it over 55 Grain Bullets. You can check on line for the barrel twist. That will give you the most accuracy. Heavier bullets will not stabilize!
But they are excellent rifles.

Kricket

That is great it has a 1:9 Twist Barrel because it will shoot the 55gr bullets OK and you can go up to around a Max of 69 or 72 depending on the rifle. And probably by all indication has a 5.56 chamber would be my bet.

Its a center point. its put away but i belive the power is 4x16, it ran me about $70 which is all i really wanted to spend for now on a scope for a .223 because i dont ever plan on shooting past 2 to 3 hundred yards in the near future
