I have not read anything bad about it, but it is pretty spendy for a .22 (around $1200). I don't know why I am drawn to it...but I am...for the same money I could have a Colt 1070xse, but I can't find one and probably won't be able to for a while.
I have the 7" Model 41. It is like shooting a pellet gun (recoil) and is super accurate. I'm no expert, but I shoot groups under 1" all the time at 25 feet free hand. At 50', I'm at around a 2-3 inch group - I simply can't see the target that far.
I have THIRTY clips fully loaded in my target bag. LOL So much for limiting bullets per clip huh? I've shot THOUSANDS of rounds and the only thing I found is that my particular model 41 is sensitive to brand of bullets. It doesn't strike hard enough sometimes with Remingtons and Winchester (the bulk crap stuff) so I use BLAZER cheapos and they fire 100% of the last 4 cases of 500 bullets. I did notice that if I rapid fire 20 clips, I start to get lead fouling up inside the barrel so now I take it easy and shoot 100 and run a snake through it and continue on.
Beautiful gun. Beautiful wood.
