The Blue Ridge is Cabela's version of the Pedersoli Frontier Rifle. They are both clones of the Ted Hatfield Rifle.
It has a 39" straight barrel, and is a bit muzzle heavy. They do shoot ok, but are, like others say, a factory gun. The one issue some had was that the barrel and ramrod pipes are not pinned into/through the wood securely. Instead, the pipes have screws that attach to threads on the bottom flat of the barrel, while holding the pipe in place, with wood between. And over time, the pipes loosen. All the re-tightening of the screws will tend to pull them through the pipes.
If You can get into a semi custom rifle at a price point You can handle, I would recommend it. And I know guys who ordered rifles from Matt Avance at TVM. And were happy with what they got.
