The BSA Red Dot that came with my 995 is OK. It is a 1X. Works nice but the factory rails on the rifle kinda suck. I am probably going to eventually replace them with a nice weaver rail for a flat top AR or something similar. The real test for the Red Dot will be when I go shootin with it.

I have not had the chance to try out my 995 yet. I will this sunday though.

Great! Mine only came with 1 mag :'(. Check out milsurp, the owner is a member of HPFF and has great prices and good service!

+1 on milsurp. My black ATI stock was purchased from there. Fast service and saved $10. :yay!:

I have a TruGlo red dot on one of my 10/22's. Not sure how it would hold up on a 995 though.

Ive owned my 995 for 10 or so years. It was a jam o matic for 100 rounds or so, but I havent had any problems since! :D Mine only came with 1 mag, but I bought 1 more factory mag. I would really like to get about 10 more factory mags, and a HP 9mm pistol! 8)

Take a look at the BSA RD30, I've seen them at WalMart for about $30. These are the same as the factory red dot sold by Hi Point.

Just shot my very used 995 ($189 shipped from Gunbroker) for the first time today. Nice little carbine.

I was having trouble with WWB hollow points. The first round would get caught in the magazine, nose down (enough to catch the front of the mag). When I racked the bolt, it would just hang up. Found if I slapped the bottom of the pistol grip/magazine, that first round would pop up and feed, allowing the slide to close. The rest of them fed without incident. Interestingly, it would happen if I had as few as 7 in the magazine.

I was just plinking today (pop bottles, etc.) but found I was shooting quite a bit high (@ 6 inches) at 25 yards. Is it possible the last owner sighted in for 100? Would that be an appropriate drop or is it just differnce in shooters?
