I donít own one I believe its Rugers version of the entry-level guns that have hit the market the last few years. I have read a couple articles in the gun rags and some post on the forums. Most everything I have read has been positive.
Over the years I have owned and still do own several Ruger Handguns and rifles and have yet to get a bad one.
You will most likely get a list of scope options. I will throw my hat in the ring early. I started buying Nikon scopes a few years back. For the price I would say they are pretty hard to beat.
Good luck with the new rifle and whatever you deiced on a scope. And welcome to the forum.
I've heard good things about their accuracy. For the price I wouldn't mind trying one out. I've looked at a few and on a couple the barrel wasn't centered very well in the stock. Nothing that couldn't be corrected though.
I shot one in June at the Sportsmans shop in New Holland range day. It shot great and had a decent trigger. It is on my list of rifles I want to buy. I want one in 270 since I already have 2 308 and 2 3006 rifles. I hope to get one this summer.
