Sorry but I wouldn't even consider one......
Wow that surprises me! You would think that with the thought (or perceived) that went into this with seemingly good features I was expecting more. Too bad, I am not pleased with most available rifles. I have an Encore, I sold the original tube, have a Bergara now that is better, but not good enough.
I may give one of the upper end Knights a go!
