Things I liked: I really like the overall looks of the rifle. The stock is very nice considering the price. Bluing is great almost as good as other Ruger guns. I was really surprised by the accuracy. I haven't fired it passed 50 meters but at that range I can keep it within 1.5" and I'm a para in a wheelchair. I do have the advantage of several years of shooting having been raised in the country with a .22 of my own from the age of 12. There's a lot of lead that I left in the woods there not to mention at the town dump where I went rodent hunting!

Things I would have changed: The trigger. Even though it is adjustable it's just too hard to "feel" the letoff. It takes a bit of disipline to hold on target until it goes off. The phony silencer only acts as a counter balance. A couple of gas slots would have made things better. Make sure to keep an eye out on it too, it loosens up after 3 or 4 shots. The scope could have an inch more relief, I have to stick my neck up closer to the lens than I would like. It's not a gun for folks under 18 and women because of the power it takes to cock it.

What others should know: A very nice gun for the price. You can do worse for more money that's for sure. Definately a keeper !
