Id purchased a Stevens model 30GM (.22mag), its the recent Savage/stevens remake of the Crackshot.
Its pretty good but is not a target rifle.
Shot for shot the Taurus will out shoot the crackshot group wise and distance, I believe its because Taurus slightly counter bores the muzzle crown by 1/16" and mabe a tighter bore?
I bought one the Taurus Model 72 rimfires about 3 years before they dropped, since Taurus has dropped there whole .22 rimfire rifle line- Mine is the stainless steel pump carbine, Ive heard of problems with Taurus products but so far Ive not encounterd any issues, Its one very impressive firearm rite out the box, I'd unboxed it and looked it over at the range, and loaded it, I never got a chance to shoot it, My son wont let me shoot it as he's in love with it, for a carbine model & .22mag its deceptively accurate.
other than the funny looking bolt mounted safty widget so Taurus could import it into the USA its all business (bolt safety does not affect its handyness), the only plastic on it is the Buttplate, the rest is machined steel
