    Oh yeah. It kicked. Not so much in recoil itself, but if you happened to get your fingers between the rest and the grip, or trigger guard, it hurt like hell. I have an old schrapnel wound in my left index finger that got solidly crunched between the pistol grip and the bench. Still hurts 4 hours later!~Muir

    I only had 12 rounds of factory PMC 170 grain and open sights. Five of those I used zeroing the sights and two I let my friend try once I did. Of the five I shot for group, they gave a 25m, 1.8" group in fading light. With open sights that isn't too bad. If it were a .44 it would have looked like a darned nice group but being a 30 cal they gave the appearance of being scattered. I didn't even take the target home. I will be working cast bullet through this gun, exclusively so I really just wanted a zero. I think 180RN bullets at 1600 fps will knock deer around nicely.

    My finger is better to day thanks. A real Mother Theresa you are.~Muir

    Hi Muir,
    I had one in .35 Rem and it did kick but I took a pronghorn at 185 paces with a scope in 1993.
    I had to give up the frame to the english police when the pistol ownership ban happened in 1997, it was what made me leave forever the fascist/nanny UK (they ban everything they dont like).

    Nice bang-stick!
    They make barrels in 6.8SPC for that model too...but little chance of one in the UK sadly
