I've heard many good things about these. So I bought one today to play with. I shot about 50 rounds through it. No jams or misfires. It has a very smooth lever action. The sights are pretty much on target, right out of the box. I recommend it. Hard to beat for the price. I paid $258.00 out the door.
Thanks WOC. Actually.... I was thinking of you when I bought it. I remembered you were looking for one. I hope you are able to get yours real soon. Until then, You are welcome to come shoot this one anytime.
Nice. The brass guns they make are too hefty and the design of the stock being what is generally referred to as "traditional" means you can't get a proper cheek weld tho -- hope this is better.
Enjoy and safe shooting!
