    Was able to go to the range and fired this rifle for the first time the other day and it was fantastic! I put 100 rounds through with no issues. The rifle is a well made and the fitment is superb! I love how the grip is way better than I expected.

    Put down about 200 rounds with 3 ppl at around 30-40yards, the first day I got it right out of the box. Just put some cheap iron sights on and all of us hit on target every time (should also note that the other shooters had very little shooting experience). If your on the fence, get this rifle asap!!
