When they grow up they look a bit better,,,

As we all did when we lost out adolescent gawkiness.

Jesus!?

I'm thinking that the hot particles/powder from the muzzle blast is a tad bit too close to the front lense. What ever floats who's boat

On second thought, forget the gun pic....-let's see the grouping pics at say- 50y.

Look forward to the pics

What's the magnification?, n what's the barrel length.

I've a small 2.5x30 pistol scope on my 22/45 and I got a few chuckles, but to say the least, it minimizes the group quite a bit compared to plain sites.

The farthest I've been able to attain ragged hole groups though was at 25y because of the low magnification.

Anyways.... Better be the early bird to snab the scarce .22lr ammo

An Aimshot Reflex Sight is normally on this U22 Neos. This scope was not in use so I thought I would give it a try. After I installed it I could not stop laughing. Here is the info on the scope.

Muzzle blast will cloud up the objective lens, but I like the concept. I have 3 NEOS and they are a blast to shoot.

One of the things I love about the NEOS is its top rail... One can go nuts with it, like get a 45 degree offset rail adapter and have a scope/red-dot and a light/laser combo.

Hmmm, I got some spare parts lying around!

Range report on Neos. First, there was no cloud-up from muzzle blast. I shot 50 rounds of stingers from 25 yards. Here were the last 10 rounds. I only counted 9 holes. I have no idea where # 10 went. BTW, this was from a rest.

First of all- CCI Stingers are probably not going to group the best-(subsonic and standard velocity ammo for the most part does better unless you have a special twist rate barrel spec. made for them)-but I actually still suspected that they'd do better than that at 25y.
