I have had a couple and they are decent rifles. Trigger is a little heavy, and the bolt is not the smoothest out there, but they shoot quite accurately and are a lot of fun to shoot.

Have had one for about 15 years or so. It has been a excellent "truck gun" and has never failed when I needed it. So far, its taken Rabbit, squirrell, coyote, coon, cat and turkey. I have no complaints.

I dont have a 25M but I have an 883 with I think is the same rifle except tube-fed.
Plenty accurate.....it has a micro-groove barrel which I think is an improvement over regular rifling. I dont have any trouble with the trigger, far nicer then the trigger on my Marlin 60, that trigger is plain nasty.
I have a Bushnell .22 rimfire scope on mine and I can usually fire 3 rounds and get 3 holes touching at 50 yards with ease. Where I shoot I cant go much past 50 yards but Im sure the capability is there.
