You have one of the most powerful
tools for research-The Internet.
I research any gun I'm interested in buying
and then make an informed decision
at time of purchase.
years ago when I bought my Remmy 270,
I had to research the old way.Magazines,articles,
ballistic info,friends etc...
I find the old research method time consuming
but one can get a more intimate knowledge of the
firearm without sifting out Tom ,Dick and Harry's
5 shot opinion.
