    Does anyone have any experience with this? Seems very well priced, with some nice features.

    Thanks
    Ben

    I've got one in .308. It's more accurate than I am.

    Shouldered one in a LGS and liked it.

    I like that it has sights as a backup.

    I wanted to like it.

    Then I...

    and didn't care for it one bit.

    On the upside, it definitely was, um, "substantial".

    Good concept, I'm sure they are accurate. But it is way too heavy for its intended use. They advertise it as a close range brush type rifle, but put a heavy barrel on it getting the weight right up there with varmit guns. Iron sights on a bull barrel make no sense.

    I'm right there with breaking and jmr.... "too much" gun for how small and handy it is... does it really need that heavy profile for the barrel?
