So I decided to keep this one for myself, given the popularity of the Browning version. I talked to our local smith and he told me the copies were so good that you could actually interchange the parts from one in the other. However, I've been running into a few issues with this one. The machining in the feed was a bit rough, and it's not wanted to continue feeding rounds worth a dam. The first night I got about 7 rounds through it before I had to take it home. I did a little work to the metal of the feed at the suggestion of said smith. Then tonight I got about 60 rounds through it and the feeding issue resurfaced. However in the 60 rounds I did get down range, it is quite the accurate little plinker. Not bad considering it was a freebie.
