I presently own 2 FA M97 in 22/22mag.One with 6.5"bbl,the other with 7.5". Most of the time I keep a Burris 3x on 7.5".
I thought for the heck of it I'd mount a scope on the 6.5"and test them side by side.Both guns had Burris 3x scope on them. Testing was done at 50yds, off sand bags.

I thought it was interesting 20-5shot groups,5 different kinds of ammo,2 different calibers and 2 different guns.Not one group was over 2". With a 20 group average of 1.288"
It says a lot about Freedom Arms!!!!!

If it jams force it! If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.
