    JH ,
    A friend of mine bought one recently (SS version) and has just had it restocked . Shoots well but the plastic factory stock is way too flexible in the forend . Might be better to choose one with the laminated stock .

    I had one in .223 a few years ago. Shot 1/2 groups with several types of ammo.
    Had some problems with the brass extractor but not a big deal, sometimes it would not throw it clear of the chamber.
