Don't miss that it could be the front half of a 97 and the rear end of a 39 or vice versa.... The action splits in half with the takedown screw... Easy to mix them up.... May not run right that...

Weird groups - how to address?

Hey all,

I am having a "weird problem" when shooting groups. I find that many of my so called "Flyers" are perfectly in the center of the crosshairs after the shot.... So something is going...

If you poke a borescope into your barrel after you shoot - you will see lots and lots of itty bitty silvery balls. That is little teeny blobs of melted lead they...

They are generally very good - especially for the price.

Gotcha. Any idea what's wrong with the rifle? Perhaps setting the barrel back 1/2" and cutting a new chamber would fix it?
