    Mine arrived today.

    Packed in a beautiful cardboard box and including 1 mag and a cable lock it arrived suitably oily.

    The fit and finish seems quite decent.

    The one thing I noticed when I racked the rifle is that the spring is quite noisy, and the experience of racking and releasing the bolt is not smooth...this may or may not be a thing.

    Its getting stripped, cleaned and lubed tonight as well as getting a Magpul Mlok qd sling swivel mounted somewhere, and probably getting a Magpul foregrip. I have a horrible feeling that I will end up buying some stupid expensive sling as well, because its my intention to hunt with thing so packing it in the bush will be a thing.

    I already bought a few mags, and will mount a scope tomorrow and hope to shoot Sunday.

    Lets see the 147grain. TSE I think did say the 147grain would be bad with a 1:10 twist. Use 168grain minimum

    I'm usually a non-believer until I try for myself... they grouped like the 150S the other day, oh well it is what is. No regrets!

    If you're plinking steel that's not terrible at all. My m14 was way worse.

    Sold my Troy102, just wasn't happy with the finish on it. Sad really, but I came to the concluion that Troy slapped some of there parts on a bcl rifle and a logo then called it a day. I'm pretty disgusted with the gun market in this country recently.

    It's all garbage.

    Think I'll stick to bolt actions.

    You're pretty much where I was close to being when my Stag 10 was having stoppages with every round.

    At least the finish on mine was good, and they were able to replace some parts and get it working well.

    I agree with you, though, it's too bad that gun companies selling $1500+ guns can't sell great products that look nice and function well from the factory.

    Some do (Daniel Defense, for example), but many are losing significant reputation points.
    Donít order from Wolverine Supplies. PM me for details.
