I've had this rifle for a few years, it's a really solid build and I just love the walnut stock on it. I've been putting off the scope, but I dug it out and took it to the range yesterday, and it's so accurate with the iron sights....I figure the scope is going to make it pretty outstanding. I went to Academy and bought a cheap Bushnell 3-9x 40mm scope, that should be good enough for what I'm going to use it for. I may not change anything else on it, the lower polymer trigger area was replaced already, and I like the clean lines of the rifle so I'm not likely to change out the barrel. I'll post a range report when I can get it to the range.
