My friend has has granddaddy's rifle definitely a pre-64 that him and his dad will shoot sub 2 inch groups at 100yd with peep sites. I have a mid to late 90s 94AE. Haven't shot it in a year or 5. It's got a El cheap O Simmons junk Walmart scope on it that I put on there probably around 2000, before I knew any better. I don't think it holds a 0 or that fancy rifling is in there just there for show. It could hit a deer at 100yd in the Maine brush so that's all I needed. I started to suspect the scope was junk when I could shoot as well or better with the open iron sites than with the scope. It's got a high rise scope mounts, 1 so the shell can top eject and 2 so the open sites can be used for splaterizing rodents at less than 50 feet. Then the scope could just be turned up to say 9 or 10 power and be left there. The scope I'm thinking about putting on there is a leupold VX-2 series 4x12 power 40mm. My cutting edge tech loads from circa 2002 are up to 37gr of H322 stuffed in the Shell by a 150gr speer hot core. Probably will continue to use H322 for lighter bullets.
