Ok, guys I just picked up a Taurus Model 172 Carbine in .17 HMR. Does anyone have one or has anyone handled one?

I went to my local FFL today and found this little gem for the sum of $200, and I couldn't resist!

If anyone knows anything about these things let me know.

All's I know is that it's a copy of the famous Winchester model 62 designed by John Moses Browning, IINM, takes down into 2 pieces for storage/packing, and would be a purt' cool little rifle to own, I should think. Congrats

Thats the reason I got it, cause it's a copy of the old Win. Gallery Gun and chambered in something diferent. Oh, and its stainless too!
I'll let you know how it shoots and handles in the next few days!
