Well, mine‘s 11 now, and it’s still “that” tight. Can’t help with the bifocal problem, I have that myself.I would never thought of that, do you have a cure for the bi-focal curse? I was hoping that after a few more range trips it would loosen up some.
Good idea, as your Bear will still be tight when your great grand kids are shooting it, many years down the road.That was the plan to run 500 through it before field stripping , but if yours is still that tight after 11 years I better print out the instructions because that will be the new norm. I'll still do a regular clean after the range trips.
