BigSkiff and I both own one of these. Mine has the 20" octagonal barrel and I believe Skiff's is a 16" round barrel. I can say, mine has been perfect with no issues whatsoever. The only dislike I can find is the stock rear sight. Very functional, but kinda cheesy lookin'. Looks kinda like a high end BB gun sight. But those can be changed out. Accurate and reliable. The action is tighter and feels much better than my Winchester 94AE.
