    As far as the weapon goes, I'm grouping great with the iron sights and the scope alike. Irons are dialed in fine, but I am still having a problem with the Commie scope. Even at 100m, I'm shooting one foot high...Windage is spot on, but I can't drop my elevation...Comment back to me if anyone knows the 'trick' to this Red rifle.

    Love mine, ammo is cheap (watch out for corrosive ammo, or clean well after using) Can beat it, run over it and it will keep shooting.
