I have the older modle...the one with the Micro grove rifleing as opposed to the Ballard rifeling....they changed because the micro grove dont like cast bulletts. Mine works great..pleasent to shoot..pretty accurate. Ive only used factory ammo at 50 yards..plinking but it is a serious soda can killer. The only mod I made was useing a dremel to sand down some sharp edges near the feed ram and reciever opening...kept nicking my fingers and looked like I was bleeding to death. Mine came with a 4x scope on it...picked it up used for $300 last year.
