    Optic in GB pic isn't included, but I'm looking at putting a Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 on it. Found one with free shipping at Sportsmans Guide for $470 shipped. In the process of finding rings for it now.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did the firearm cost?

    $1075+$25 shipping. Add my FFL transfer fee of $25 for a grand total of $1125 OTD, which ain't too bad IMO. ;)

    We had one out at a buddies getting easy hits at 600 with it on a bucket. I think you'll like it!
