Because of a seriously reduced budget, I have ended up buying this. Will be at my RFD ready to collect on Sat.
This is I think the push feed model with no floorplate, and the budget version I think - looks like an 80s rifle. Def post '64.
Just wondered if anyone has any chat on them? Having read some really enthusiastic reports on their rugedness and general shootabiliity (apparently budget just meant cheaper stock, action and barrel the same quality) I'mprobably as excited about picking it up and seeing if it shoots as I would be a new shiny one. Always a treat to get a cheap gun and find it shoots nicely - although the v cheap and wonderful husky I bought did, it might be hoping too much for this one!
Any idea on factory loads, or any general tips would be very welcomed.
