NE Ohio chimes in.

Post by HalBoy » Fri Mar 08, 2024 8:56 am

Just took delivery of Long Ranger Express (H014-RP). Optics are a FFP Nightforce NX8 1-8x24 with one piece NF mount being borrowed from my CZ Bren carbine. So, after an initial full disassembly and clean/lube session I'm impressed with the quality. A bit of extra-fine polishing compound on the bolt key and the bolt slot smoothed everything out. Probably would have worn itself smooth over time but I was in there. Range testing with 62gr and heavier ammo showed aro 1moa out to 200yds with initial zero at 36yds. Best results were with 75gr target. I'm working out a short m-loc or pic rail insert to go into the fore end just behind the end cap. Should be a great hunting rifle.
