    When you say, "good," what are you asking?

    As far as being desirable, yes, in that they are getting pretty scarce, if you're looking for one.

    If I ever found one, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    Just make sure its a legit one. There are a lot of knock offs. Look for engraved serial number and the proper parts of the receiver cut out to lighten it. I have seen a lot of number 4's bubba'd into number 5's...

    I've heard recoil can be a bit on the stout side.

    Dont get ripped off.


    Should have Lightening cuts in the sides of the receiver , rounded lightening cuts around the barrel shank, hollow bolt handle.

    Proof testing mark should be 1-2" in front of the barrel band.




    Recoil isnt that bad, ive shot the ammo i have loaded up for my bren through mine and it isn't too rough .

    BUT i generally just stick with a 170gr cast load using 11g of unique.

    Here is mine. Yea, it kicks, but not as bad as the Mosin M44. It really makes a pretty good brush gun. I've carried it when hogs were around my place, but never got a shot at them. Accuracy is adequate.
