I was looking around for a good lever action that I could use for fun as well as hunting and other things that I needed. This one was it. Just to make sure it works properly I did the only thing you could do, take it to the range and put about 500 rounds through it. The factory sight settings were low and left, just some basic adjustments and it was dead on. Unlike what alot of people complain about with guns, if you know how to shoot, you can hit a target past 25 yards, I was shooting on a 150 yard range and was still maintaining a 3 inch 3 round group. No problems as of yet and not expecting any, but if there are parts seem easy enough to find to fix it.
