I was excited to receive this rifle because it looks so good. Very unhappy with its performance. The hot empty casing, along with burning powder, shoot everywhere. Even using high velocity 22lr, the rifle mis-feeds, mis-fires, etc. What's worse, I have the windage sight all the way to the left to keep the bullets on target at 10 feet. It seems like something is bent. Finally, lots of loose fitting cheap plastic used. Very sorry I bought this rifle. I should have bought the Ruger 10/22 like everyone else.
