First off, I know that I read a lot of reviews praising Buds for being so fast. Plan on waiting a week. I'm not saying they're slow, but I've ordered several guns here, and it's always about a week...so don't get your hopes up and be disappointed.
About the rifle...I love it. It looks awesome, if you're into an old fashioned looking hunting rifle that screams AMERICA...and in this case, chambered in a classic hunting round that also won World War II...you can't help but love this rifle! I went all out and bought an American made scope, base/rings, and sling/sling swivels. It DOES feel good having a rifle and everything on it made it AMERICA.
But anyways...I held a couple at gun stores and didn't purchase them due to scratches and obvious rough handling. I understand that hunting rifles will accumulate scratches, but I want to be the one to put them there. This rifle from Buds was flawless. The stock was perfect. The finish was perfect. It really looked like a New In Box rifle. It also shoots great. I'll give that credit to Remington, though. The furthest I've shot paper is 100 yards and I can group sub MOA with a 5 shot group.
I really like the X Mark Pro trigger. It breaks really crisp (a solid one stage trigger with no creep) and is SUPER easy to adjust. You can look it up in a search engine online, but basically, there's a small screw on the trigger, and you just turn it with a provided allen wrench...no breakdown of the rifle at all...which is nice because you can make quick adjustments while sighting it in and see what pull is most comfortable for you. I don't have a measuring device for the pull weight, but I adjusted it down half a pound (half a turn of the screw) and I love it.
This rifle is definitely a keeper. I hope this helps somebody.
