I know of a Bremmer M16A2 lookalike in .22lr for sale.
In 1978 I was told by my grand dad that the secret to rifle accuracy is, a quality bullet, fired down a quality barrel..... How has that changed?

Went to Bisley with the Guncraft WMR. Took a while to zero at 100 yrds, windage was spot on but shooting too high and i didn't have a sight adjusting tool so used a bullet which took some time.
120 rounds without any malfunctions, kept in the 3 ring which is about what i normally do with iron sights.
Great fun, can't wait till my Retro carry handle scope arrives from Brownelles.

Good work! Was actually just about to post on here about the era-correct scope at Brownells with it being on offer for Black Friday :good:
