    Not great. It's going. A bit creepy and a bit spongy.

    That today mate?
    Was going to go up myself but thought it was a bit windy to do what I wanted. That and I fell asleep on the couch and wasted all the daylight.
    Going up tomorrow?

    Not bad but sold the target MkII and will probably move it too my MkII 17hmr, when I swap out the stock.
