Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

‘Out of the box’ accurate (or is it precise?)

‘Out of the box’ accurate (or is it precise?)

Gotta love pulling the new to you 96/11 from the box it shipped in and going to the range with some GP11 and getting this group at 100 yds.

Can’t say I was surprised though based on my other Swiss rifles performances.

Time to order the taller front sight blade.

They are a cracking rifle.
I assume you were shooting at 100yds

As I have posted on this site, of the military surplus rifles I own, my M1911 rifle will outshoot any of them ( bolt guns ) at any distance. with a good reload,you can shrink that group by 30%.

Nice rifle! But that target is demonstrating precision, not accuracy. But who really cares about that right now, as you just got it and that target shows it will SHOOT! Now you can get a taller front sight and then ‘dial it in’ to where you want to be. Then you will have both precision and accuracy.

Technically, the difference between precision and accuracy is best explained by a simple picture.

Thanks it was sarcasm that was poorly executed.. Good graphic to save for later. Yes, 100yds. I’ll shoot her at 200yds to dial in. Looks like a good one for our vintage matches like RapidRob mentioned. I use his M188 recipe in the G1911 already, but didn’t have any made up the other day. I like to get a GP11 baseline anyway.

Great looking rifle, I got my 96/11 last week. I'm looking forward too getting out too the range soon with it...
