New Arsenal SGL21 Range Report

I took my new Arsenal SLG21 to the range on Saturday. I had some concerns because the test target that came with the rifle wasn't very impressive... 2 shots approximately 6" apart at 25 meters.

I fired a total of 5 magazines (150 rounds) without a single hick-up. The trigger will smooth out in time. The $9.95 steel mags from AIM worked perfectly. The TULA ammunition went off every time I pulled the trigger.

As for accuracy, I was very pleasently surprised. My eyes aren't the same as they used to be, and open sights can get blurry, but I have no complaints about this rifle. At 25 yards, my first group of ten was more than satisfactory. The second group of 30 rounds confirmed it. At 50 yards, the groups stayed within 6", and that's acceptable for me. I did not have to make any adjustments to the sights. They were already zeroed in.

Next range trip will focus (pun intended) on 100 yards.

I am extremely glad I bought this rifle. If you're thinking about one, don't wait too long.
