I picked mine up yesterday for $449. Mighty pleased with it. It is very accurate and never has a problem. In fact, I just ran 500 rounds of Blazer through it with no problems. I put a red dot on it and went back to the factory peep sight. The stock isnt made for a red dot. I have some 10-22s with the same type of stock and they came with a rear piece that angled down. Makes a lot of difference using a scope or red dot. Mighty happy with the reliability and accuracy so far. Have a goodun!!!!
