    For a cheap-ish piece of crap -- it aint half bad -- clear lens - tight rings - no rattles - nice finish -- so far I like it --



    I wanted to eliminate the scope mounting base - so with the 10/22 rings - with final assembly I'll drop a 1" chunk of pipe w/ auto valve lapping compound and give it a few turns to look for high spots & alignment --



    Really needs the sun shield - they were out of them --

    With it turned off - the reticle is still visible -- in low light the red LED will be nice --

    I completely understand that sentiment! "Smart monkey uses what's around him."

    Back when I was courting Mrs Inor, I had an answering machine. (All the cool kids had answering machines in the late 80's and I was nothing if not cool.) Mrs Inor called me one day and the phone rang and rang and no answering machine picked it up. That evening when she came over, she told me that my answering machine was broken. I informed her that I found out the answering machine used the same memory chips as my computer, so I desoldered the chips in the answering machine and installed them in my computer. As she was flying off the handle telling me what a jerk I was for disabling a way for her to communicate with me, I looked down and muttered something about "Dames... Skirts... Mugamba...". She hit me in the mouth and split my lip. It was then that I knew she was eventually going to be my wife.

    But first a word about Spirit Levels --

    100 years ago my Pappy took me into Grosmans & showed me how to pick out one -- out of 8 or 10 --

    The Stanley string level I bought with him lives in a eye glass case wrapped tissue paper -- dead accurate for what it is --

    When I buy 4' or 6' levels after I picked out the best out of 10 -- I'll put in on the best candidate to check -- so when I bought the plastic two pack yesterday -- one of them pasted muster --

    When I slam a scope on a long gun - my procedure is --

    Get the mounts as parallel as I can in line with the bore ( a 2' pipe helps ) -- slide the scope fore & aft for my odd shaped head -- level the barrel side to side & front too back and lock it down in my padded bench vice -- measure the distance between the bore center & scope center -- that measurement goes on a paper -- tack it in the bed room wall - about 25'-ish ft. away -- the laser bore thingy into the barrel -- move the paper so the bottom dot is covered with the red light -- then move the redical to the upper dot ---- this gets me on paper at 50 yrd. --- then at the range I'll tweak it --- works for me --

    Soooooooooooooooooooooooo --

    Pinky leveled across the receiver --



    Then checking the already mounted scope that shot good last month -- WTF ?



    New hand built toy centers itself the the bore center --



    Leveled on the scope -- ( I should have squared the cell over more -- but its good ) --



    Looking into the scope centered on a door edge I saw this -- mine was only two line thickness's to one side -- not as bad in this borrowed pic --




    So looking at the door edge and through the slot -- its now plum -- the amount of twist I gave the scope was less than 1/32" --

    Now her scope is re-set -- no excuses now --

    Remember Goyem & Girls -- I experiment so you don't have to ?

    Using Wifey's not favorite nail polish -- I daubed it on w/ the bottles brush - waited 10-ish minutes - then with Q-tips & non-acetone nail polish remover gingerly removed the excess --



    Its thin in spots and the factory paint is starting to get thinned --

    Sooooooooooooooo -- having decent results with etching prime & BBQ flat black ( knowing it will scratch off ) -- I gave it a whirl with this project - just for shits & giggles --

    ( how many wives can say they went to Wally-World to buy their husbands nail polish ? )

    This time -- one brush drop of polish - then with a pin held sideways slid the color across the stamping till I needed more ( less to clean off ) --



    I like it -- very subdued - ya-have to look to see it & a lot less to clean --

    Guess what -- non-acetone "eats" BBQ paint -- as does the polish itself !



    So - I'll remove all the paint -- keep assembling & wait for my Cerakote curing cabinet to materialize --

    And now --- a quickeeeeeeeeeeee review --



    Its nicely made --

    The end --

    P/S --

    Checking it -- doing the 180 spin -- it isn't level --

    Putting my sacred spirit string level on top either 180 spin them both / only spinning one -- It ain't level --

    So its only going to be as accurate as you can plumbing the firearm --

    And its to short -- if I had iguana eyes - good -- I cant see it around the eye piece / focusing ring --
