    I took a gamble and grabbed one at auction, NIB (test fired) for $425. Composite stock, scout length. I was wondering "why is it being auctioned off?", but for that price, aw, what the heck.

    I wanted one for similar reasons to yourself, I really dug the iconic look, wanted to try some 100 and 200 yard gongs, yet something capable of taking larger game.

    So with some cheapo ammo, I take it out of the box, iron sights, bench rest, 50 yards. Bang! Buddy says it's right on. I said "must've fluked that one one". Bang again, same result. Hmmm, went for the crow sized 100 yard gong, blammo, smoked that thing. I rang it at will, tried the 200 yard coyote size gong, same thing.

    I don't obsess over group size. I just like shooting and (mostly) hitting targets, so for me, money well spent. I don't think I would get more enjoyment from a Springfield, the M305 fits the bill for my simple needs.

    Hardly on topic with target and precision, but we're encouragng enjoyment. Discovering a platform/caliber at low entry cost - instead of diving into a $2k entry rig. See-Me?

    I picked up an m305 from... dammit some store in Ontario for 640 or so.. can't remember the name. A cheap spring guide from SFRC, and a cheap scope mount from canada ammo ($34 + $30 shipping... rude)

    Shoots pretty good but I haven't mounted a scope yet.

    Just wanted to give you a heads up on the scope mount, it's proably your cheapest option and it seems built like the $200+ ones, since you will go a little crazy looking for one.

    The M305 is fun to shoot and the 2 that I have can hit a 300yard gong with just the iron sights but donít expect them to bring you sub moa groups

    Norinco is a good rifle. I like mine. Arch angle stock. Spring field armour scope mount and a primary arms 4-16 scope.
