Well, a BL-22 followed me home. Want it to be a working rifle when I go to the farm. My older eyes don't like the irons, but a sharp eyed friend shot a dime sized group at 25 yards so it has potential. I've ordered a Skinner aperature sight. Getting the tall front post, I'll file it for sight in. I'm impressed with the rifle. Didn't know how I would like the integral lever/trigger, but it feels solid and tbe pull, though a bit heavy, is very crisp and feels lighter than its 6 lb pull.

BP-B2

Looks like yours works, Huntsman.

Update. Ordered a Skinner aperture soght with the 0.600 post. Local gunsmith installed the post today and to the range I went. No filing was needed and only a little windage. 1.5 inch 5 shot groups at 25 yds, probably as good as I can do with trifocal vision. Think I've got my farm gun. For precision work I'll grab my bolt action with a scope.

I had a good shooter, but couldn't see the irons anymore. Very fine sights. Gave it to my granddaughter. If I got another, I would go with a reflex sight like Huntsman's.

I thought of a red dot type sight too, but wanted a tough sight, as this will be both a fun plinker and a working farm .22. Will do a lot of riding on the pickup seat without a lot of tender care. Not abuse, but regular, working use. I too couldn't use the fine sights that came on the BL 22, but the Skinner peep and post are very workable for me. I've been having great fun with tin cans, dirt clods, and knots in old fence posts. I normally use a scope when I think I'll do a lot of shooting or am seriously hunting, but for a pack around rifle that I can carry on a walkabout around the farm, this might be just the ticket.
