Sights are good.
We needs sights.

Front globe of course "in da raw" yet. Going to hand the entire thing some finish up the road but to be honest i feel it might be an idea to shoot the thing first.
To make sure that it prints at least reasonably vs what the sights tell.

For a rifle this IS!!!
DAAAAYYYYUUUUM!  {:(

Handing it 90 grains of 3F and that 490grain pill! Now this is one serious hitter! This nimble little thing hits like a freight train,hits where you aim and just behave in general.

Friggin happy as pie!

Now to restore the stock of it.
