Correct! He wanted to be able to use irons. The irons are great for 100 yards, the scope is zeroed at 200. It is a very versitile rifle. With the stock configuration, it is not bad at all.

OK!!!! finished this project (finally) today..glad it's over to tell u the truth. One thing I learned is never to buy a cheap stock!!!!! This one from ATI was a real pain to get to fit together but everything else went pretty smooth.

Hope all enjoy the pics!

I am curious. If the scope is mounted to the stock, can it be stable/ accurate?
