    Just brought this home last night, its rather intimidating! Not as much in felt recoil, more toward the cost to shoot! I got a box and a half of ammo with it, cost 5 bucks each time I pull the trigger!...I need a reloading buddy!-Bloo

    Thanks Woodman, I couldn't pass up the deal the owner offered, seemed to be a good price, for all that came with it. -Bloo

    In all honesty, I'd be more interested in trading it for a short action Varmint rifle in .223...model L461, AI of equal Value.

    Great pictures, Bloo- Sounds like a "screamer". I am very interested in the stock that comes on those. It just begs to be shot. -Misako

    m995-I've not scoped it or shot it yet, but prolly will soon, I have scopes to use on it, was mainly worried about effects of recoil. This gun has a 26 in. barrel as far as I can see, and if I keep it, I'll try shots as far as the area topography allows!:bigsmile3:-Bloo

    The US importer is located in Happauge Long Island NY right off the Long Island Expressway. I have family 1 mile from there & I walked in & got to see first hand about them. They are made in the Prerov, Czech Republic & assembled here in the US. The 4-12x50 is real clear & adjusments are accurate.

    They also come in 3-9 & 6-18 & sell between $399 & $599 US dollars.

    When you are done shooting, look to see if there is some poor cringing heap on the ground near you. It will be caused by the muzzle blast that gets redirected by that "thingy" on the muzzle. They really are no fun to be next to when they go off. But other than that , enjoy the time out in the great outdoors.-Misako
