Haha. It does have a trigger. Although with a rimfire I could see where you would not necessarily try it out. And thanks everyone for their helpful advise, sympathy, and humor.
As I read how bad it could be, I realize I am being a bit anal. At 25' my POI was off by about an 1". With adjustable sights and a 5.5" "target" barrel I expect better. But it can always get worse
That said I do feel a little stupid for not looking closer. Now that I see it, it is pretty obvious. But I got it for what I think is a good deal so now I get the opportunity to make myself smarter with my "good deal".
