    Finished it up tonight. The rings arrived today. Put on the bsa sweet 22, and boresighted it. I will have to take it out next week and give it a shot or two to see what it can do with the scope when i strech it out to 100yds.

    Those sweet .22 scopes are awesome! Got mine before they got more expensive. Nice rifle.

    Great rifle to start the kids on. I started with an old Savage 67A semi auto with a trigger like pulling your finger thru a jar of peanut butter with a soda can pull tab let off. :laugh: Still, I loved that rifle. Kicked myself in the butt for years for selling it to a friend when I got 10/22 fever. I have found the same rifle used that I bought for nostalgia's sake, but it is not MY FIRST RIFLE.

    Tell your kids that no matter how many rifles may come and go in the future, don't sell that first one. They will regret it.

    I'll have to take a look at that scope...the 4x that's on my 9 year olds rifle has a little too high cheek relief.
