So continued from the general discussion thread, I'll save you the long details but I get to my friends house, he has decided to keep the one with the holes in the grenade launcher, (it was in a tad bit nicer shape) and sell me this one. I realized it had a peep sight on it
He said he didn't want that and he took the traditional one. Ok, No biggie and I walked out $450.00 less in the wallet. I took it to the gun club and sent a few rounds down the pipe and said to myself WHAT THE H@!!... ? I hit "NOTHING"! 50 yards, NOTHING! So I grabbed a person down the club and asked him if he could see where I was hitting. I put a 3ft piece of white paper on the target board, "NOTHING AGAIN"
? So, now frustrated I said, keep a good eye where they were hitting. It's 0930 and I'm ready to start drinking!!! 5 more rounds and we realized I was hitting about 2 ft above the target board!!!
Ok, now I understand why the person sold these to him, they must of had NO conception of sighting in a rifle. So after getting it on the paper, tweeking the front sight, and the peep sight was adjusted to full up, getting it down, I honed in to "3 to 4" groups on center! I almost went to the bar!!!
. My wife wouldn't have me liked coming home hit in the A$$ at 1100
Anyway, here she is. I can say there is very, very little use on it. I have no idea how old it is but it's a nice shooter now. At first I was ready to throw it in the pond!
. I gotta be careful now, SKS's seem to show up in 3's for me. It happened not long ago... Oh, Edit, Everything matches number wise...
