My uncle owns one that I've gotten to shoot, it's a lefty model but as a right-handed-shooter-thats-a-lefty it's nice to not come off the stock and stay in the scope. Shoots very well for as affordable as they are. Nice gun!
I really like it when anyone gets a new gun, but when a youngster gets one it is outstanding because the future of our sport depends on them. I am glad he liked it. I have a Savage 30-06 and it is a very accurate gun.
