Ive had one for a few years.model 92, 24" bbl, Stainless. Wood is nothing special. I had to replace front sight with a williams fiber optic ($20) ,it was shooting 4" high.
My grandson ,now 12 yr old, has been deer hunting with it for last 3 years.
I reload for it, and it is very accurate out to 100yrds, with open sights.
I did the Steve Gunz slick job on the action, and it is really slick, smooth, awesome action.
Nice, fun, see what it will do to a gallon water jug at 100 yds,
I havent had any problems with mine.
yeah, thats a limbsaver pad, for the grandson. Recoil is very light though.
