light oil and coaxing to remove the stuck bullet.
So....this is gonna sound like a dumb question...but what's a bore sight?

Hi rferguson61,

Welcome to FTF.

There are many specialty lights for this, but any small LED flashlight with

the bulb sticking out of the front will do. Simply BE SURE the gun is

completely unloaded and the bolt removed, and shine the light down

the bore. Helps to verify a barrel is clean, free of obstructions, and still

has rifling lands intact...

Holiday season is a great time to find bore sights, just look for any small single led

flashlight, AAA or AA, which is shaped like a bullet.
