NEF Sportster: A Sleeper?

Or is mine just a fluke? I got one of these neat little .17HMRs with a heavy barrel and scope rail for some clandestine extermination of yard 'hogs around the treatment plant...just doing my civic duty...hung on a cheap little 2-6X NcStar Chicom scope, and started drilling woodchucks through the head at 80 yards with ease. I have a Handi-Hornet that shoots unremarkable 2 1/2" groups, thanks to a heavy trigger, but this little rimfire I've had down to 3/4 @ 50 yds. Anybody else own one?

I had one but it was an inconsistent shooter. I could get a good group and then a terrible group and then something in between. Got tired of messing with it and traded it off. Had a .223 Handi and it was consistent. Never got it to shoot anything you could call a good group. It went down the road too. I know they are not all like this but I've had my H&R-NEFs.
