Tried the "new" A-3 out at the range. Mounted a new 3x9 variable 22 scope on the gun by eye. Within 5 shots I was on the bulls eye at 25 yards. Put the next 10 through the bull's eye. I haven't gotten that kind of accuracy out of any of my bolt action centre-fires. Took it out to 50 yards after adjusting for the bullet drop I kept putting in the center ring. At 100 yards it was tougher because of a 4-6 inch hold over but the gun still got it done. Don't know if it has enough zip to take out a coyote but the local rabbits should be nervous.Wfandrich
