Well I had recently traded away a custom 10/22 I had and was planning or building a new one. I had picked out all the parts I wanted and was looking for a receiver to build off on but really had no luck. I took a trip around the Triangle looking for one and ended up ditching my idea of another 10/22 and picking up this beauty. After finally getting a chance to shoot it today I am beyond pleased! It shot a ragged hole at 25 yards with bulk federal rounds. The only issue I had was removing the factory scope base screws....while they didn't have loctite they were cheap screws and were in extremely tight and I stripped 2 of the heads when trying to remove them to install my EGW base. It was pretty pricey for a .22 but the trigger is excellent and I really like the barrel and stock. Threw on a Nikon rimfire and it is a tack driver. I am very very pleased.
