Yes, (Willie Sutton) I'm really pleased with this rifle. Gave up an 03A3 sporter that my dad had built for me when I was 12. Felt like c... for selling it (it would jam alot and I needed the money) and just wanted another 30-06 that had some history and character. Threw a "wanted " add in the antique section of a local newspaper awhile back looking for a 30-06 and got the call on this after 5 weeks. Feel very lucky to find this simple but beautiful rifle. I'll never let it go.
