Re: You Have Got To Be Kidding
Methinks they're thinking of putting a cheaper rifle into the market to increase access to the sport for low income blue collar types. At the risk of sounding absurd, they have succeeded to some degree.
Couple of years back when the gun was first introduced, a coworker inquired about what would get him into the woods of S. Carolina and I suggested a 710 in 30-06, with the proviso that he ditch the scope and put a better piece of glass on top. Wound up with a Leupold vari-x 2 3x9 and the gun shot 1.5" groups right out of the box with 3 varieties of ammo. After a few minutes he was putting those groups about 2" above POA. Not long range stuff but he's bagged about a dozen deer with it to date. It's cheap, it's reasonably accurate and the targeted market segment is not noted for vast amounts of deep thought on the subject of shooting or ballistics. Pickups on the other hand...

Wyo, I don't read the commercial as suggesting that the gun only be bore sighted, FWIW. Maybe I filtered something out? I'm getting way too good at filtering as years go by. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
