Yeah thanks to y'all loving on them I bought one. I gotta say when people say its the pinnacle of bolt action design they ain't lying. I agree with @MountainBear that My P-14 has better sights but I can't deny the results that thing shoots where you point it pretty much every time. I was actually surprised by how much kick it did have. That 7.5x55 is a STOUT round and from a light little karbine with a beech stock you feel it. Going between them I say it had more than my 1903, my P14 or my long branch. It was comparable to the M44.
