First impressions of this gun, as I have yet to shoot it.
Bad.....The wood is very very unremarkable. The pictures are what you get. The safety is almost ridiculous, but on a lever it is easily ignored.
Good.....The Bluing is even and spectacular. The tube out magazine loading option is superb. It can be loaded through the loading gate but the mag loading is much easier and the mag insert is threaded and knurled. If it weren't for the cutout on the mag you wouldn't know it was removable. No little pin that you turn a quarter turn and remove. Fully threaded and quality built. I have read where some have said the follower shouldn't be yellow but I don't care. If there are bullets in there you can't see it anyway. The action is as smooth as my Winchester 94. The wood is fit well and smooth, just ugly.
If you are looking for a display piece, this is not it. This is a great everyday, behind the seat of the pickup, use it and abuse it shooter for the price.
