Things I liked:Good feel and balance. Heafty. Things I would have changed:Would rather have metal trigger, and I would replace sights with "quality" metal ones. I would offer a MUCH better quality scope. Typical outsoursed manufacturing...This would have been a MUCH better rifle if "everything" was done here in the USA....Sad for Ruger and the American buying public. What others should know:Scope is cheapie....poor quality.
