    hey guys i just did my first review on one of my first firearm. This review isnt the finial product what so ever, its non edited and i know i forgot some stuff i wanted to mention. I was wondering if you guys could look at it and tell me what you like and what you don't like. let me know if i forgot anything that should really be in there as well. Link is to youtube where my video is at.

    I thought it was a good video. Maybe in the next one you could let us see how it shoots.:)

    Im very hesitant to make a shooting video for youtube, too many arm chair elitists to nick pick anything they can.

    Good Review! I am going to look into an extractor for mine. I shoot the same gun. I like it and I have the same likes and dislikes as you do.

    Right on tom, do the trigger hammer at the same time. It does make a huge difference when shooting the gun, especially when your shooting more then a hundred rounds in a single sitting.

    I will do that. I also really want a wood stock on mine. I bought mine from a buddy for next to nothing it was like a year old. It has a camo stock so I have been looking around for the perfect stock.

    The wood stocks can really take the rifle from looking from a toy, to a high end firearm. The only downsize that i noticed with my Boyd's stock was it added some weight. This wasn't a big deal for me because I shoot it from a bench rest, but if you take it hunting or doing some "run n gun" you might wanna think twice about it. Keep a eye out on Ebay for stocks, i got mine for 50 bucks and ill i had to do was re drill one bolt hole that did not line up correctly.

    I will check it out!
    I just shoot with my son. So weight is not an issue.
    Thanks Surfgod247 for all the helpful info
