Things I liked: The looks. that's about it
Things I would have changed: The trigger is not really adjustable except for take-up. Fit and finish; the stock on mine apparently was damaged at the factory and filled in with wood filler on the bottom and front of the pistol grip. There is no recoil stop, and boy does this rifle need one. About every thirty shots or so, the cocking lever will bind and not allow you to cock the gun. The scope failed after 200 shots or so.
What others should know: Spend a little more money and purchase a different gun. It's a shame when a company (like Ruger) sells its name to put on an item that they don't control the quality control of turns out to be a piece of crap. I like Rugers, I own a bunch or Rugers that are made by Ruger. Don't buy this gun.
