Question about a Mossberg 183

For those that have owned and still own a Model 183, how strong is the action on this little bolt action?

Any answers would be appreciated very much.

I think its stronger than a pump action. Don't hesitate to shoot it unless you see some sort of damage.
There is no such thing as a stupid question, only stupid people.

It looks to be in good condition.

I'm only going to use factory loads in it.

Thanks for the input.
