I fired one that belonged to a friend, 1n 1988. It was 30-06, wood, blued and he had trigger work done, cause this trigger pull couldn't have been more than 2#. It shot quite well, my first shot discharged before I was ready, because of the light trigger pull. It was more accurate than I expected.

I handled one recently at Scheels in Billings. It was in 308. It looked and felt cheap. It was not blued on Walnut. It was Parkerized on plastic. The trigger pull was wretched, and it rattled, and was noisy when cycling. I didn't shoot it, so I don't know if it was as functional as my buddies was in 1988.

To tell the truth I don't know if I'd want one or not. It didn't stop my buddy from bringing home venison with it though.
