Oh and that is a fine lookin wood on her - got character. I have a very early production..has black spacer and a redish pad.
Congrats on a fine lookin rifle.
Thanks, I needed that. I was kind of bummed when I wrote my post. I'll try some of the cci. I've never had any luck with it in any gun I've purchased in the last few years. But, I've got some, so I'll try it.

I did hand feed each round, I've found it does make a difference when testing for absolute accuracy.

I will try to shoot it more, but it's kind of hard to do when other rifles I own are more accurate. But, I'll give it a chance. I really do like the looks and feel of the rifle.

Thanks again,

Kenny
