Yes I removed the handguard, it does not have the lightening cuts on the barrel, the reciever does look correct though.
I went out and shot the thing today, and discovered that it shoots extreemly left, I tapped the front sight over to the left until it was about to fall out and it still shot slightly to the left. Good thing is that it puts them all in the same place. Ran out of shells, gotta work on it when i get another box.
Drifted the sight all the way to the left with some JB Weld so it wont fall out under recoil.
Will try again next weekend.
I wish I could figure out what type of scope mount the previous owner had, Id scope it. I posted a question and a picture on the smithy forum but have not got a result though.
