Almost the instant I fired the last shot the sun came out full blast. Before I could finish loading the two magazines, the temperature shot up at least 10 degrees and I started sweating profusely. Ugh. So much for doing any more shooting.
The grouping is about 5 inches at 40 yards using the stock iron sights and standing upright and unsupported. Not bad, but not great. The sights are obviously crooked and pulling about 6 inches to the right. No wonder I couldn't hit any of the soda cans. The owners manual says to adjust for windage, I have to bang on the rear sight with a hammer. WTF? These sights have got to go.
I searched around on Amazon and found a non-magnified electronic sight that looks like it'll fit the Marlin. It's about $40 including a rail adapter. Ouch, especially since the rifle was only $115. (And now I know why it was so cheap.) I should have the new sights by Saturday, hopefully there will be a break in the humidity soon after.
Thank goodness this ammo is dirt cheap. I dread trying to zero in the scope on my Springfield.
