I recently bought this for my son, and a few members said this my be a bit too heavy for him to shoot all day ---- Well, they were right. We ended up buying a Henry Lever Action for him. Tradedor trade for a semi-auto pistol. Beretta, Walther PPK, Kahr, etc. This model has the good Ruger receiver, trigger internals and steel trigger guard not like the new plastic ones. Simmons 3-9x32 scope, Butler Creek fluted 22lr barrel, laminated thumbhole stock. This gun is in MINT condition with only a few rounds through it since we bought it.
