A couple weeks ago I picked up this R-15 in 223 topped it with a Burris FF2 4.5-14x42mm and RRA high rise rings and mount. Pretty sweet setup. I added the ambi safety and still need to install the winter trigger guard. The ol Stevens will have to do some sitting for awhile.
Here's a group at 100 yards with 55gr FMJ's. I've heard awful stories of the terrible Remington trigger but I didn't find it that bad at all.
