    Just picked it up. Haven’t even shot it. Fits me perfectly. I am 6’ 3” so longer LOP is great. Probably won’t put a scope on her. Stock puts my eye right behind iron sights. [​IMG]

    Nice rifle! Be interesting to see how well it will shoot for you with the irons. My deteriorating eyesight makes a scope necessary for precision shooting. Still love shooting with iron sights, though...

    I am heading to the range tomorrow. It has a cool adjustment on the front sight that cranks it up or down. Might try a peep sight on it too.

    It shot well. Good enough for my white tail hunting. Hit the target at 100 yards. Can’t tell if it will shoot groups without a scope. Maybe later.

    I haven't shot the model 85 but according to what I've heard they are very accurate. My AIs, S491 and 75 all shoot better than I can hold.

    I ordered some scope rings. I’ll put a Leupold 2x7 on it and see how it shoots soon. It’s a very well made rifle. I am very happy with it. I find the action on my L61R to be better and smoother. Must be the bolt guide. But this Bavarian handles like it was made for me.

    New Beretta “low” rings were too high. Sending them back. Found vintage low rings in great condition. 1/4” off dovetails instead of 3/8”. Should be perfect for my 2x7x32 Leupold.
