Beautiful firearm. Exactly as stated. Firearm cycles smooth and looks great. Bushnell scope on top was mounted already and for a bargain scope, it is great. Will upgrade, but when I get to it.
As for Buds..... Great price for the firearm, but you get what you pay for when it comes to shipping and customer service. In their defense, I used their eCheck/ACH payment method, but it took 10 days from payment to actually ship out, and it was "in stock". I believe I would have had a longer wait if it weren't for my 5 messages left on the phone number(never could get a live rep), my 5 messages via email to Buds, and 3 chat sessions with refund the main topic.
Honest opinion, if you don't need the item in any hurry, buy from Buds. It WILL get where it needs to be, but they are in no rush to put the item out after they get their money. Remember, they WILL wait until the final day of every deadline that they list for every stage in processing (i.e. 3-7 days is listed for shipping, they will wait until day 7 to ship). If you are in a hurry, spend the little extra and go buy it local.
