She is a tack driver, I just had a red dot on it before. Received my scope today and will update with a pic.

Added the scope to my rifle tonight, Leupold mr/t 2.5-8X Mil Dot reticle. Hopefully the PA weather warms up soon to try it out. Sub zero temps out there.

I got money on a higher cheek piece in your near future. Looks damn good though!

It's actually not too bad, kept it as low as I could with a set of Larue lt719 ultra low scope rings. I have 2 hundredths of an inch gap between the scope bell and the rail.
