    I purchase a 995TS about a month ago. Made a couple modifications already, getting a longshot, long rail and put a set of cheap flip up iron sights on it (it’s what I had, need to purchase something a little better for backup sights) with a red dot and flip to side 3x magnifier. First time out to shoot it was Saturday and all went very well, ran a magazine of ammo through it then started to adjust iron sights 9 rounds later I was hitting center mass about a 3 inch grouping at 25 yards, so on to the red dot, that took about 9-12 rounds also, then just ran about 150 rounds through it. Had a great day and really enjoy shooting this little carbine was able to hit what I aimed at well for shooting off hand, probably try to take a bi-pod or a couple sandbags and tighten up my zero the next time I get a chance to go shooting, as I just used a table to prop my elbow on and held the carbine so I think I can tighten It up some more. I didn’t notice any cheek slap, or maybe I was just having too much fun and did not notice this, as I have read a few threads were people complained about that. Enjoy getting on this forum and just reading some of the threads and the advice from you all.
