    Just got back from the range. Tested the hold over marks. They are pretty much on. I hit a soup can a couple of times at the 300 yard line. The scope is staying. :thumbup:

    Either old scopes are weird or someone put that thing on backwards.

    I have a spent casing get stuck now and then when the slide closes. It gets stuck tight too. I need a mallet to move the slide back. Will it lesson as i break it in?

    I've got a scope like that on an AR-15 with a front sight/gas block. The front sight is blurred out except on the lowest power.

    That's the one I have. Works great!

    I see it's the scope, but there's also the ugly original lawyer mandated hand guard designed to protect you from a non existent problem.

    First thing I changed.

    So that's what that thing is? Designed to protect you from the op rod? Really?

    That's odd for a mini. They usually throw the cases to the next county. It would not surprise me that closing on a spent case causes a jamb. I experienced that on occasion shooting parade blanks without an adapter. The bolt would only partially open than close and not quite be all the way into.battery. The question here is why is it closing on a spent case?

    Nah. Thats the way you mount a scope so your 25yd targets look like they're at 250yds. ;)

    I would not use a mallet on cast parts.

    Looks like the case is bouncing back into the action after being ejected.
    I'd take apart the bolt and really clean the extractor, ejector, spring, and all race ways well.
    Wouldn't hurt to clean the gas system also.

    I was having an issue with the extractor not popping over the rim on my mini a while back. A good cleaning of the extractor plunger, spring, and bore got it running in tip top shape again.
