I received the rifle yesterday and I think it’s a fair deal for what it is. Too bad it’s -20* or I’d would have already put some lead through the barrel. I really like the light weigh And the trigger doesn’t feel too bad. The dislikes are the two piece rail on top of the gun, the slop in the the extendable stock and the horribly cheap plastic sights. Other than that , I think it’s a keeper. I pulled a few patches through the barrel and had a good look at the crown , not overly dirty but definitely had some sort of preservative in there. I had some BUIS that I mounted for now but I think I’d like some sort of Prism 3 or 5x sight for ease of use and not have to rely on batteries. I’ll post my findings once I get some time to actually shoot it. For now , it’s 10m basement plinking with the HW35E.

Ok here we go . Out three hundred through it yesterday. 200 were 40 gr. Blazer and the other 100 were federal 40grain. Using the BUIS I was able to get some pretty good groups with both ammo and had no real change in POI. Nothing to write home about but 1.25” at 50 yards using poor open sights is way better than I expected. The trigger has a very long pull not sure if I’d call it a first stage but there’s definitely a stop before it breaks predictably at close to three pounds I figure. Did have a few failures to load but I think I took care of it with a clean and lube . We’ll see after I get out there again. So far , I think it’s a fun gun to shoot . I need to find a better optic for this thing , I just can’t decide what.

1.25" isn't bad for Iron sights at 50.. So with a better optic, you could probably get it under 1".

Trigger is heavier at around 5# But I recommend getting a fixed stock. I don't think I even bothered shooting it with the OEM stock. CYMG, I believe is the stock I used.
