As far as fit and finish goes, it's a synthetic stock and IMHO I think its perfect. It feels great at the ready, and I think it looks very nice.
I'm fairly rough in the handling department, but with the synthetic, I'm not worried about nicking or denting the wood as with my Remmy 7400.
The action to me is very smooth and I had no problems whatsoever cycling the next round, and bringing it to the ready again.
The trigger has just a tad bit of creep. Not too noticeable, but I'm not picky about that aspect much anyway.
But overall, I think both rifles for $680.00 (with the way they performed) is probably the best deal I've ever come across.
It definitely makes "Made In the USA" proud.
