Product Review (submitted on October 23, 2017):
Shot about 150 rounds of various CCI and Hornady FMJ, soft point, and XTP rounds. I mounted a Weaver 4x scout rifle with Weaver medium height rings. The optic has a 28mm objective and this set up worked for me as I don't like my face being squashed in the stock. The straight pull action is a dream, no more up and back!!! While I didn't measure the trigger it was crisp and you knew when it was going to go. I don't see a reason to mess with it at all. The magazine insert and release was both positive and audible, you knew when it was in place. Once I get the feel for the rifle, I was regularly popping 1 1/2 or better groups. I know the rifle can do better, I was limited to 4x in this setup. I will put a more powerful optic on it to ring it out later. It has a large storage compartment in the buttstock where you can store a variety of field or range items. A very balanced setup and it will make an excellent field or survival rifle. Straight pull in a fast twist .243 please!!!!!
