Default Hornet Accuracy?

A guy that comes in a shop I'm in pretty often asked if I'd be interested in his handi 22 hornet. I told him I would be, he's gonna drop it off for me to look at. Haven't had a handi in several years....what kinda accuracy should I maybe expect(realizing all don't shoot the same). And I might need those disassembly instructions to mess with the typically not good triggers.
Thanks guys!

See the Trigger work section of the FAQs sticky.

Had one once...was very accurate shooter. Had the trigger worked which made it even better. Mine had a 1:9 twist which let me shoot heaver than normal bullets. Also have a Ruger and a Browning 22 Hornet so eventually traded in the H&R. You'll enjoy the gun...

Mine does mostly about 1 1/2", on good days approaching 1".

My 22 Hornet Handi Rifle was one of the worst shooting Handi Rifles I have ever owned, until I started reloading for it. Bought a Lee Classic Loader for it and the groups tightened right up.
