I only put 100 rounds through her but didnt have one hiccup. Ammo is SS196, sight system is a Bushnell holosight (poor mans Eotech, even though they make them).

It looks like I was geting about 1.5-2 inch groups at 50 yds. Given the floating barrel and 9lb 1/4 mile travel trigger I figure this is pretty much par for the weapon. I will get silly and put a scope on it at some later date.

Fun weapon to shoot and definitely gets attention at the range.

Well, 196 is the slowest of the civilian ammo, and it has actually been discontinued.

I've gotten some 3-5 shot groups .5 to 1 inch. I think I posted a 13 round target on another thread - shot at 50 yards w/ an Eotech.

With a few trips, U can close up the groups a little. BUt, yea, with the heavy trigger, it is hard to not move the gun when U fire.

Not bad.

Its possible that it needs a bit of breaking in as well. My M1A needed it and I have it shooting .5 MOA with match ammo and a 10X Leupold tactical scope on an ARMS mount.

Yeah.. I read that the SS196 is the pokey stuff. I will get something a bit hotter next time.. Ammo is key.
