I recently purchased a 995 TS, and for several weeks, I have been trying to get past the first step with any new rifle I purchase. My first step is to fire, with the aid of a bench rest, to get the rifle "sighted in". The best I could do was about an 8" group (at 50 yards), keeping most of the impacts on a 12"X12" target. I have tried three different optics, an aluminum top rail, and everything I could think of. Today I figured it out. It was........................the SANDBAG!!! The SANDBAG????? Yep. I was supporting the front end of the rifle with a sandbag under the lower rail, but not under the bare barrel. As soon as I moved the bag to the rear, just in front of the trigger, the groups tightened up to 2" at 50 yards. Maybe everyone on this board knew that supporting the carbine barrel near the end could cause accuracy problems, but I sure didn't! I am now very happy with my 995TS.
