I bought on for my girlfriend as a Christmas gift. I've only fired maybe 20mags at most through it, but it's a nice shooter.
The trigger has a little safety in it which doesn't do a whole lot except what it's supposed to. It's got a nice clean breaking point with out a lot of slack either.
She hasn't put a scope on it yet and were fairly new shooters, but here's some groups shot from 25yards with it. The first picture is five shot groups while the second is seven shot groups. I was also trying to see which brand was more accurate in the rifle.
(Federals champions took the cake for this rifle)
If a scope was to be out on it, I'm sure the groups would get a lot smaller.
