I'd say its definitely a keeper. Hit the range las tweekend. 25 Yards. will step back further next time.

Sorry i put tape over the targets before taking the pics, but you can see the holes.

I've discovered this rifle shoots better than I can shoot it. The trigger is so ridiculously heavy, its tight and crisp but dang its heavy. I cant get used to the pull, and I keep pulling the rifle.

(the upper right was not part of the group)


(again, the ones outside of the box were not part of the groups)

yep looks pretty damn close to my mossberge 46 B(b) except mine is tube fed and has a scope on it. With mine I can get 1" grouping out to 60 yards or so damn fine shooting rifle. Get her cleaned up and a little lovin she should be good to you. I will admit getting replacement parts for mine is pretty hard but worse comes to worse you should be able to just make some of the parts by hand or get a good machinist to.
