Im not sure what cheap means but I would check out the Ruger American Rifle . It's less expenive but not cheaply made . OK the stock feels kinda cheap but the rest of it is good to go . I put a 3-9x40 Tasco world class scope on it and paid $400 out he door for the rifle and $60 for the scope
Does it work well ?
