It was a great rifle .. I'm sure on days any less than as hot as it was or without the weight of the Bi pod on the fore end it might not have had that issue. But the fact it had any barrel sag left me with serious concerns. See my whole collection is geared towards wrol / shtf / teotwaki and I just didn't feel that a rifle that had that issue fit that theme.
And the groupings didnt drop much maybe an inch? I dunno and to be fair that 15-22 did have a bi pod on it as I said that probably contributed to the problem .
lemme see if I can find the video ...
" Be advised that "frame flexing" was noted in accuracy testing off bipod due to the polymer receivers/rail composition and resulted in wider shot variations "
heres the video ... Skip to 23:30 and this frame flex happened @ 78-80 degree conditions . where I live in florida we see upper 80's to mid 90's most of the year . In exposed vehicle temps can reach 120-130 . So for me atleast this was a real concern
I am now much happier with the ruger 10 / 22 takedown . That being said . th 15-22 was a great rifle and other than this issue and feed problems with certain ammo nutnfancy had nothing but good things to say about the rifle and uhhhh I took no loss
