    I've got a stainless fluted one, x bolt that is! I'm very happy with. The safety system is good, better than my tikka. It's robust and made for the elements. If you want a pretty bit of wood then it's not that. Seems accurate, not as much as my tikka. Not shot much paper with it. Shot a few does and foxes over the winter and it puts the bullet where you put x hair, what more do you need. Had a vixen with cubs in the other night out to about 200. I use RWS 100g cone point. Not tried anything else.

    I had one. got rid of it. Hated the trigger. 3.5 pounds was the lowest it would go down to. I think the fluted barrels might go down to 3.1 lbs. If you are ok with that then it is a nice rifle. If like me you like a light pull 1.9 lbs then it will quickly annoy you.

    Test the trigger before you buy.

    All i can say is it is much lighter than it was, how do you check the pull, fishing scales and nylon i assume, out stalking tomorrow so i will try it when i get it out the cabinet.

    Devon DS, yes a trigger scale is just that, wire hook that goes on to the trigger attached to a small spring scale.

    Interested to hear your results because the last one i tried at the shop was 3.2 lbs at the lowest setting.

    Why should the trigger ruin the gun for you ?
    It is possible to adjust it, but if you want it below 3lb you will need to either obtain a spring from the USA, or just cut the spring down.
    Mine after playing with the spring broke cleanly at 1lb 12 oz, it would then adjust from 1lb 8oz back up to 3lb ith just a twiddle on the screw.
