[5 of 5 Stars!]I bought this rifle a year ago and have probably 1000 or more rounds through it now. I find it to be just as dependable as a Ruger 10/22. If you keep it clean it will function great, but let it get dirty and the old case will not always clear the bolt before it closes. Accuracy is superb. One half inch 5 shot groups at 50 yds. are the norm, with either Hornady or CCI ammo. For me the light weight is great, I can pick it up off the seat of my pickup and point it out the window with one hand. Without the barrel weight you do have to concentrate a bit more when squeezing off your shots, this probablly wouldn't be an issue if the trigger were more refined. It's not any worse then any other factory trigger, it just needs some work.
Overall I like this gun so much I plan on buying another in 17HMR as soon as Buds gets one in stock.Show More Reviews...
