It's a 197 series Ranch with a Accu strut mounted to the barrel, I put 1911 buffers on both side of the operating rod before I added the scope, re-torqued the gas block down to an even 18 foot pounds.
I could never use a scope for shit when hunting. If I could lay the rifle on a bench, line everything up, get comfy and squeez it works but when there's a moving target and I need to act from training I shit the bed every time. My old man and brother could hit a deer in stride (with a little luck of course) at 100+ yards with a scope. I can never even find them in point of view and I've pretty much given up trying.

Pisses me off!

I could also ht stuff with iron sights at long distance that those two can't for shit but still, it would be nice to be at least a little competent with a scope.
