I know it's first a Ruger, but are they really good shooters? There is one for sale at a lofty price with a really pretty wood stock. Should I spend $1000?
Like Tom I have always wanted one, they are a beautiful rifle, but what experience I have had was mostly second hand. With all the troubles people have had getting them to shoot I would not spend $1000.00 for one and take the chance if it would shoot or not. Of course I am a T/C person so I more likely spend my $1000. on a T/C Encore and a couple of barrels, a little measuring to get the cartridge headspace and you are good to go, and most of the wood you get on them is pretty good too.I have no firsthand knowledge but l have wanted one for years. They generally have very pretty wood . Some are extremely figured. From what I have read some are extremely good shooters others are almost impossible to get to shoot even reasonably well. I believe this is one of those times that you pay your money, take your chance, and hope for the best.
