I\'ve put about 250 rounds through this rifle. The 10-round magazine has worked flawlessly. It had one failure to feed when my buddy was shooting it, but it turned out to be operator error because he didn\'t seat the magazine until it clicked all the way in. Keep in mind that there is very little aftermarket support for this rifle and what is there isn\'t very good. The 30-round magazines made by Remington are garbage. The one I bought doesn\'t even feed more than three consecutive rounds. The 22-round Pro-Mags are okay, but they have occasional feeding issues as well. The main reason that this rifle is getting 4/5 is because of the extractor setup. The extractor is actually broken into two separate parts Remington calls an injector and an extractor. I cleaned it once before taking it to the range and then once again after I got it home. The first time I didn\'t notice anything wrong, but the second time I noticed the tension spring on the \"injector\" had become slightly unwound. I loaded up a 10 round mag and cycled them all through by working the action and they all chambered and ejected fine, but I\'ll have to get it to the range so I can fire it to see if it still works well. Overall it\'s a fun 22LR rifle, and at $160, you can\'t really beat it.

Took several weeks for this gun to ship from Buds. Not that big of a deal. I still received it before Christmas. It was a gift for my son. Anyway,after inspecting at my FFL dealer. I noticed that the barrel was kind of wobbly right out of the box. I should have not walked away with it,but it was nearly Christmas and I doubt I would have gotten a replacement before Christmas being as they are sold out of this make/model on Budsguns. so, I take it home and take the receiver off the stock and noticed that the bolt was loose that holds the barrel on the receiver. I also noticed that the receiver housing near where the bolt attaches the receiver to the barrel was cracked. So, I try and tighten up the screw to to snug up the barrel and it breaks off. The receiver housing appears to a low grade "pot" metal. Now im in the process of getting this thing replaced which im fairly certain will not be alot of fun. This is the 6th gun ive purchased from buds and have not had a single hiccup until now. I would reccomend if you want a are looking to purchase a QUALITY 22 semi auto, go with the Ruger 10/22.

love the gun but buds did not check the product properly and my gun did not come with a rear iron sight??! thank fully i had a scope for it but i wanted to used the iron sights for close up hunting, like rabbits.

i love this gun, granted i have been modding it. Volquartsen hammer and extractor do wonders. fun and a lot more accurate than a stock 10/22. mine has had near flawless reliability after the modding i did(didn't shoot it before modding)

Decent Rifle 22LR . Shoots well and very problems. Not nearly as accurate as my Ruger 10/22 but not as expensive.

Built well, accurate out of box, add a scope and it gets tighter. Overall good value and my first gun from Buds. Oh and I just bought 3 more weapons today. You can't beat buds!
