Any experience with Krico 22lr rifles?

I have the opportunity to purchase a Krico 330S single shot heavy barrelled rifle. I know nothing about Krico rifles and can't seem to find much on them either. Anyone with any experience with this or other Krico 22lr rifles? How do they shoot? Would this rifle be equivalent to an Anschutz 54 ?

I don't have much info on the 22 rifles, but from what I hear they are very comparable to Anschutz or Weihrauch. Lothar Walther makes the barrels on them which are extremely good barrels. They are made in Germany.

Here's some info on their high power rifles.

I owned a Krico about 25 years ago. It was well made, but it is nowhere near in the same league as an Anschutz or a Walther rifle. Nice looking rifles, but hard to get parts for if you need any. If you are looking for a shooting rifle, I would look at something different. If you are looking for a "looking at" rifle, they are nice.
