I installed a Mossberg 500 scope rail on it. And added a small red dot. Took it out yesterday and sighted it in and was getting really good patterns with it. At 15 yards, there were too many pellets to count on the paper plate and would probably just about tear a squirrel or rabbit in two. And at 32 yards, was still plenty of pellets. Should have no problem at all reaching the tallest tree in the woods, which is where you tend to find them this time of year. I took a couple of pictures of the target, but can't upload them right now. My card reader is acting up and I'm going to have to get an external usb card reader. While I always seemed to do really well with #6 shot, this gun seems to prefer # 7-1/2 and #8 shot. So, to give a little better odds with them, I picked up a few boxes of the gold Remington nitro's. Hopefully they'll still be enough oomph to take a squirrel or two with it.
