My younger brother bought one last year, and he has had no problems with it. It seems to shoot well at the range, and he brought home deer last year and this year with it. I've noticed he is very careful how he closes it after loading, but I think he is a little worried about slamming the action hard enough to knock his scope out of adjustment. ( he is one of those guys that buys the cheap aluminum scope rings, and the cheapest tasco scope from wally world he can get)

I ask the same question at a different forum as I'm also looking at getting one. They same to be a good gun as per feedback from those who shoot one. In case your interested look at www.archerytalk.com , The great outdoors forum, hunting subforum.
