As a new weapon I was surprized at how easily it sighted in. At 25 yeards with the ACOG it only took 12 rounds to sight in. The weapon fired flawlessly, no jams, no miss fires. The weapon was tight and ejected ammo a long, long way....hit one guy in the head when he was tesing his HK91, opps!
25 yards: After Sight in 3 - 1/2" groups
100 yeards: 10 - 3/4" - 1" groups
300 yards: 10 - 1" - 1 1/4" groups
Overall the weapon fired nicely. I would like to see sub 1" groups at 300 yeards, but not this day. But it does get to go back to the gun smith for the final tune-up, now since it is broke in.
Pictures in the next few weeks to follow.
