Alright, I've owned this gun for about 2 months now and put about 300 rounds through it. There are good things and there are bad things. First and most importantly this is a 26" heavy barrel, and when they say heavy barrel they mean HEAVY barrel. I seriously doubt the average human being will be able to shoulder this rifle and hold it steady enough to hit a deer let alone a target or bullseye at more than 100 yards. I'm a 6'2" 200lbs farm worker and it takes all my strength to hold it steady for more than a few seconds. The stock is cheap plastic but gets the job done, and it comes with a scope base included. I threw a 6.5-20x50 scope on it and it does well fyi if you have a scope over 50mm you'll have to buy high or see-through rings I fit mine on there but it looks like there's less than maybe .5 of a mm inbetween the scope and the barrel which makes it impossible for me to slide my lens cover over the end :/ I would recommend this rifle for long range prone shooting, i bought a weaver rail mount (for a 12 gauge since the bull barrel is fatter than a 12ga barrel) and threw a utg bipod on it and i have to say it works incredibly well. Buy a tall tripod if you plan on shooting this thing not prone (sitting or standing). Now for the pros, first off this is a 308 which means cheap ammo, I have a 30-06 automatic and $1 a shot wasn't cutting it for target shooting, you can get any of the russian bear ammo (silver bear, golden bear, brown bear) and tula ammo in 308 for ~40 cents a shot and they even come in soft point. The best part of this rifle however is what makes it worth ever single penny, accuracy. I had this bad boy shooting quarter bullseyes at over 300 yards, and let me tell you 300 yards is a longgg way. This rifle can outshoot any rifle 3-4x the price, I can't even begin to explain how impressed I am with that kind of accuracy if you can hit a quarter across 3 football fields there isn't anything you can't hit. 'nuff said.
