A good gun is never too big, when it's something you'll cherish the rest of your life. However, rifles with scopes as a package deal, are priced(my opinion) too high, because they charge $100 or more for the scope/rings/base mounts, that's worth maybe $25 and they are not worth it. Trust me, that's the cheapest of the cheapest, Chinese scope you will find without a name on it. Yeah. they might work for maybe 6months, but if you need to change it out for a better scope anyway, because it broke, that's $100 or more, you could of saved and applied to the much better scope of YOUR choice. Get the rifle you like, without the scope/ring package and you'll have a MUCH NICER rifle package with choosing your own scope and rings that will last a lifetime. Or let us here help you with that scope/rings if you have scopes to choose between.
