||Mossberg 22LR Model 715T....5 Stars
Buds' Gun Warehouse......5 Stars.
Picked-up the Mossberg 715T, 22LR at the Gun Warehouse yesterday and went straight to the Bud's Range.
I brought with me Remington 36gr Golden Bullet Brass-plated hollow points, and Federal 40gr AutoMatch bullets.
With only one provided magazine and U-loader tool, it took a while to get in the reloading groove, unlike several other
commentors, I was able to get 25 rounds in each loading cycle.
I fired 100 rounds downrange with no hiccups. Everything cycled fine. The battle sights were close enough right out of the box
and I was able to offhand shoot groups within the 3" bulls-eye of the Birchwood Casey Shoot N-C adhesive targets.
All in all, it was a fine experience and I had a blast shooting it - I just wish I had more magazines. I took it home to clean it and I found out through You Tube videos that the takedown is rather involved....so I have elected to lock the bolt in the rear position, use some zip ties, Velcro and rope to hold it there and proceed to clean the chamber, bore and magazine as well as I can with Rem Oil and patches and paper-towels, nylon brush and plastic pick cleaning tool. I'll know next time I shoot it whether that is good enough.
I did ask about extra magazines at the counter. Buds has none in stock. They said best to look online. I did last night and I was able to find some IN STOCK at Bass Proshop so I ordered some...I looked just now, and they are on Back Order so I hope I got in under the wire.
Hey most of the rifle is not metal, it is high tech resin....I do know that I had a blast firing it and it went BANG each time I pulled the trigger. I am looking for more fun with it.
As always, Bud's folks were right on top of their game. I ordered it Monday; it was ready for pickup Wednesday at the store. Order and order status info came straight to my email and they were ready for me when I arrived Thursday.
Keep up the good work.
