Yes it is a little difficult to cock. I just mounted it last night so it will take a little
Tweaking to get right. I had to have the scope rings machined a little for them to fit into the grooves. Someone said that I might be able to get a hammer adapter from sources such as uncle mikes. But as far as the basic gun it shoots well. It is
A .22 magnum and is fairly accurate at 25yds. I will have to remove the rear sight as the scope is resting on it and then see how it does. if I am pleased then
I will look at the hammer issue, I don't want to get too involved if I don't plan on keeping it.
