I know a few folks that have them and they are happy with them. I've looked at it a few times but the right one has not come along. They are good shooters but the Hogue stock is a love it or hate it deal. Not everyone falls in love with the rubber texture and it pics up a lot of dirt etc in the field.
$700 is a VERY good deal. That gun retails for $1,000-$1,200 depending on configuration so at that price I'd buy it. The barrel is not heavy enough for serious persistent long distance shooting but it will do for hunting and paper punching.
