While I know this rifle isn't for everyone, it is perfect for me. I love the look and feel. With irons it points naturally. The bolt cycles smoothly and the trigger is crisp with no creep or play. With a 2X7 scope, I was hitting half inch groups at 100 yards with 165gr Sierra Game King ammunition. If you are looking for an all purpose rifle, I would strongly recommend looking at the Ruger Gunsite Scout.
