I just got this a couple days ago. I was going to sell my Tikka in 6.5x55. I put a scope on it and shot it 10 times. It shot fine but I have never had a mauser style action and decided they are just not for me. The gun is beautiful walnut. It's an 800.00 gun but I will sell for 675.00 and Keep my Tikka another year. There is nothing at all wrong with this gun, it's just not for me.
