The one I bought was a new old stock made in 2013. I got it dirt cheap or I couldn't have afforded it. I think I did good. Sights dialed in quick and my wife was hitting soup cans at 20 yards. They were the bigger soup cans but she fell in love with it. I was hitting a 4 inch group at 25 yards on paper with several in the red and most in the 9 ring.
