I have the short model with the Lyman R12 Peep sight on the back and it is great to shoot. One very important thing though is if the cartridge stop is worn out your in trouble. These were staked in and you have to find someone that is very good at a mill in order to fix it. Parts are hard to find but there are a few out there.
They still do make them today they are called Brownings, and the Browning is a bit smaller in the receiver too.
