I put a Picatinny rail on it and topped it off with a Vortex Spark II red dot sight. I finally got it sighted in and it now shoots 4 inch groups at 100 yards for me. I'm certain, with more range time I can tighten that up

Was lookin at the spark recently. IIRC, the dot subtends 3 m.o.a....
....which is kinda big for 100 yds. Wish someone would resurrect the old Lee Dot for for these electronic sights. They made them as small as 1/16 m.o.a....

I've got a 4 reticle Bushnell Trophy red dot here that gets used a lot on air pistols. Smallest dot on it is the same 3 m.o.a.

Nice gun though! Have you shot it with the factory peep?

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

put an aimpoint on mine - the dot is smaller but still only good at closer ranges or at bigger targets

i outfitted it with a 22cal conversion from a group buy on the FAL site a number of years back , it runs flawlessly ,

Haven't seen a gun metal aimpoint in a while now. Probly go good with clean Parkerized :bigrin:

Thanks for posting those. Is Herstal Group still a viable operation? There were rumours of them foundering a while back...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
