Yes, indeed! And since it's not a true USGI carbine, you can (in good conscience) use a reproduction sling and oiler, now available on gunbroker for $17.00 + $3.00 shipping.

The really expensive and hard-to-find parts are the rear sight and the mags. If you find a spare, grab it if it's not over $50!

mhmm, I have 3 15rd mags for it now, may get a couple more later. The 5rd mag is really nice for bench work.

I read that you aren't supposed to take the rear sight off of these, as you may not get them back on w/o stripping the screw. I have been toying with the idea of a small red dot small enough to fit on there w/o removing the sight and see through QD mounts. I'm guessing the dovetails are 11mm European.

This rifle is a whole lot of fun! maybe bc its my first semi-auto .22, but I have always been the type of guy who has to have something 'different'. I have my eye on one of these too, (I'm really getting into .22lr military/military looking guns):

The problem with the rear sight is that the screw will come loose and fall out. Then you lose the rear sight. Be sure to check the screw and add a drop of lock-tite.

I was thinking of a very small red dot... small enough to mount without having to remove the rear sight, using see through rings preferably.

A rifle without iron sights is no rifle at all, regardless of the optics on it.

I tried a red dot sight, while searching for a rear sight. The one I used (about $35) was awful. The red dot completely covered the target at 50 yards. I would assume that there are much better ones out there, but I expect that they will be pricey.

Bushnell and Millet make ones in the $100 ish range, they seem to get good reviews.

One does not need a $500 sight on a $300 plinking only .22 shooting $15/550 ammo.
