Mossberg 100ATR?

    Hi, I'm thinking of purchasing a Mossberg 100ATR in 30.06, and I want the opinions of those who own or have owned one. More specifically:
    1. How rigged is it? The one I handled seemed to be a bit light and had a slight patina of rust on the bolt. However, I blame the rust on the horrible Wally-World near my house.
    2. How's the felt recoil? Because of the lightness, I'm worried about how much it kicks. My wife will be using this rifle too.
    3. Any other comments will be appreciated.

    The latest NRA rag has a review. They seem to think that it was a good value. Course, I haven't read too many gun rag reviews that were not positive. What would you be paying? I have shot a savage (110 something I think) that a friend got for about $300. It was decent...it certainly shot well, but the stock was flimsy and it seemed to kick harder than my 30.06 does. I have also handled a Stevens that seemed pretty good for the price you can get one for.

    I forget what Gun Magazine, I think Guns and Ammo, but there was a review in the latest month or two of the ATR and the Savage Stevens. The Stevens got the nod completely over the ATR.
