Well, when I started hunting many years ago, this was my first deer rifle. Shot a few deer in NYS and Maine with it. Then I got into the buying rifles thing and trying all kinds, from levers, pumps and semi autos. My daughter and son used it for moose up in Maine also.

Then about 2 years ago I read an article that said the low serial # rifles could be unsafe to shoot due to overheating of the receivers during manufacturing. I guess a handful of the receivers cracked and some shattering after being fired. Now I have been shooting this rifle for 40 years, probably have put 200 rounds thru it, so I think this one is OK. Made me kind of uneasy though because I let the kids use it. 😳

I had taken the scope off of it, but I put it back on and shot it today, with safety glasses and goggles over them.😃 Got it putting them right in there with Corelokts. I love the rifle and it's two stage trigger. Looking forward to getting it back out into the woods this fall.

Who can I.D. the rifle. Make and model?:unsure:
