    If you over charge the rounds beyound book values neglect the gun letting the bore rust up or store nails in the chamber of course it will explode.

    Model 70's are pretty strong.

    My preference is the classic control feed design over the pushfeed design.

    Never been a huge fan of push feed bolt guns.

    Yep! They are known as the "one night stand" rifle. They are sold with a one cartridge warranty. The receivers are made from pressed cardboard and the barrel from injection molded polypropylene. The weight comes from the heavy paint job.:eek:

    Someone needs to have a talk with your friend.
