Is it a rifle, or a carbine?



Well, technically the Carbine is a "short rifle", there was a carbine model that was even shorter.

Accuracy could be good, really depending on the bore. It should probably kick a little less than your 24/47, (same pressure, lighter bullet), but it could also depend on the weight difference between the two, and as was mentioned, 7X57 will kill pretty much any game animal in North America.

Samco has dirt-cheap surplus ammo listed currently, no experience with it, and it is corrosive, (but this is a non issue with proper cleaning). For commercial stuff, Privi Partisan is probably the best bang for the buck, and if you reload, the brass is excellent.

For $100, you really can't lose.
