What do you want to know?

All they are is an M77 with detachable mags, iron sights and a short barrel. They are pretty nice though.

Jeff Cooper was pushing this concept twenty-odd years ago, and few gun manufacturers came up with models along the lines he envisioned. I don't have one -- in fact, I used to think it was a pretty dumb idea to GO BACKWARD and make a 10 round tactical BOLT ACTION rifle. However, now I sorta like the idea, and one is on my "someday" list.

I bought one LH, similar to the one pictured above, but I do not like the scout scope concept so I put a 1 3/4 x 6 Leupold on mine and it is reasonably accurate (1 to 1 1/2 MOE) with most loads I tried. The things I like is the adj length of pull and short bbl for fast handling in the thick stuff here in the south!

I have one, with a Leupold Scout Scope mounted in the forward position, as intended. Not sure why one would pay the extra money for a scout rifle and then defeat the purpose by adding a conventionally mounted scope. To each his own though. My rifle easily makes sub MOA accuracy. I have been following the Cooper Scout concept for many years, and the more experience I got, the more it looked like it was a great choice for me. I have long range precision, highly accurate rifles, African caliber, rifles, lever action, single action, AR platform rifles, etc., but the more I shoot this rifle, the better I like it. It doesn't do any particular specialist job exceptionally well, but it does most of them VERY well. If you like the concept, the rifle will meet or exceed your expectations. That is MY 2 cents!

OK I love the concept of this gun - but really - that stock finish, it's not for everybody - let's just say - there should be more options available
