    Work has been done on the trigger to take it down to about a 2lb pull and it has a Tasco 8 x 52 scope fitted currently.

    I had one of these in .22-250 and it shot great , good safety and well made . No bells or whistles but killed foxes bloody well . Just swapped it for a steyr in 243 , goes well with the .308 !

    I had one aswell in .243 a few years ago, my first rifle. The trigger was the only issue i had with it, even after adjustment i wish id just changed it out. Never liked the pull on it even at 2 1/2lbs. Hope you have great sucess using it.

    I have already tried it on the range with my RFD and I like the trigger, he's done a top job adjusting it and it is crisp and clean with no creep at all.

    Now I can't wait to pop and pick up some Federals (RFD reccomended) and get zeroing on paper

    I bought one of these a while back. I think they are good rifles if you don't mind doing a bit of work to them. They can also be a bit fussy on ammo. I do a bit of my own smithing so I swapped the factory trigger for a timney one and Iv'e free floated the barrel also. Mine shot 2 to 3 inch groups with federal and these shot the tightest out of 3 brands in 100grain I tried. Handloading I got it to 1 1/2. Will be trying some 85 gr Sierra HPs soon. Good enough for the woodland roe that I am using it for.

    Congratulations Adam.

    I had one of these in 7x57 about .... A long time ago. I fitted a Timney trigger , which was a huge improvement, and it shot great with hand loads using 120 NBTs. I used it on Reds, Roe, and Foxes if they showed up.

    Basic and very rugged, I enjoyed it a lot and it turned me on to the calibre.

    Good fortune with yours.
