Started out using the classic IMR 4227 many years ago.

Used the rest of the Lil'gun for fertilizer and went back to IMR 4227

The Browning branded Burris bases are a bit heavy and clunky and do move the front ring forward.

Looks like a clean commercial (no rear sling swivel) 52D.

Wear on the bolt handle suggests that it has been used but not abused.

Especially the Zanders HB variant.
