Excellent rifle and also a real beauty. BUT I had some accuracy problems at first. I found that Mossberg is extremely careful about making sure their rifles are well protected. I had a bit of a tussle scrubbing out the factory grease but in the end the rifle is smooth to operate and is accurate. Just remember this is a saddle type rifle not a bench gun.
The stock is slender and though it is drilled and tapped for scope mounts a saddle gun has a little more slope at the comb and heel. I needed a small bit of a boost and got a cheek pad so I could liner up with the scope.
The stock is real Walnut and has a very nice nice finish. The metalwork and bluing is nice. No complaints there. I have had no problems with failures to feed or any mechanical problems. As mentioned, the accuracy was bad but a good cleaning took care of that.
A tip: When cleaning, make sure you use a muzzle protector, as this rifle must be cleaned from the muzzle if you use a sectional or 1 piece rod. Otherwise use a snake with solvent and or oil but make sure you clean out the factory goo.
The price is surprisingly low for a rifle of such quality and I do recommend it.
