Yep, took it to the range this past Saturday. Had it sighted in at 50 yards within 4 shots. Bored sighted at home, then one shot, hit high, so bore sighted it again to that first shot. Next shot slightly lower, next lower yet. Fourth shot right in the bullseye. I used a two inch orange dot just to make it easy to see. Took it out to 100 yards and it was hitting about 2 1/2 inches high, so dropped it down until it was about 1 to about 1 1/2 inches high and left it at that. I could cover the one group at 100 yards probably with a silver dollar. Not tack driving accuracy, but for me plenty accurate enough. I base my groups on how well I think they'll do on a deer sized target at a given range and I can certainly live with a 3 shot silver dollar sized group at 100 yards. For a 72 year old gun on a hot humid day, shooting reloads (Mine), and being shot by me I am well pleased with it.
Yea, this was a drop in "no Smithing" mount from Accumounts. I like the mount but it came with no instructions how to mount it. Its similar to the older ATI mount on my other Enfield, however this new one is made of steel and has a wedge like affair on the front of it that tightens up against the cross member under where the battle sight is located. I took the mount out of the package and unscrewed the wedge then had a time trying to figure out how it went back on. I finally figured it out and its a very steady mount. The ATI mount has only two small Allen screws that hold it in place. One goes against the receiver and the other on an angle to lock the first one in place. Both mounts work though. The only issue I had with the new mount was I had to grind off a slight bit of metal off the mount so the bolt head could rotate downward when it was replaced in the receiver. Those who own Enfields will know what I'm talking about. Once I did that though it works fine. I reblued the area that I ground off and you would never notice it unless I showed you. If I get a chance I'll post a picture of the rig.
