    Picked one of these up today NIB with cheap glass and rings for $295 out the door. Nice birch stock, adjustable trigger. (rip-off of the accutrigger). Took it out back after a quick bore sighting job. Cheap 150gr Federal ammo. Trigger is adjustable from about 2-7lbs, and was set at 6.2lbs. Dropped it down to 2.75 and went to shooting.

    First shot was a foot low. Dialed the correction and put 5 more down range. One more correction and the next 5 rounds went into 1.25 inches in a 90degree x-wind holding two minutes of windage.

    Finished the box of ammo out with groups between 1.15 and 1.5 inches in the wind.

    Going to bed the stock tomorrow and play around with the trigger. Ordered better glass for it tonight. Think this ones going to be a keeper.

    Glad you like it! My "Tan Lightning" Mossberg ATR doesn't have the adjustable trigger but it still shoots 3/4" 3 shot groups.
