(BTW, all three rifles wear scopes but are mounted as low as possible. Just the way I like 'em.)
My other 10/22 is a pretty much stock 1969 carbine that doesn't shoot as good as the 512 or my slightly customized 10/22. That's ok, it's a classic in its own right. My wife likes it just as it is. My guess is that better glass would make it shoot much more accurately. If I ever find a good deal on a era correct Weaver or something similar I'll make a switch.
I'll post new pictures of the 512 when I get the scope remounted on lower rings and get to the range to get it zeroed.
