    after a huge 40 day wait I picked up my Winchester last week. here's a picture.
    It has an octagonal barrel (in case it's not clear in the photo).

    Yes it is. I understand the irony of me buying a canadian centenial version of the most American gun ever.

    LOL,

    I would have NO problem, buying the Canadian Centennial.
    If I could find one, at a price I could afford.
    Anyone, who wants to give you a hard time over it.
    Does NOT know, what a great rifle is.

    Nice rifle Sam. Is that barrel bent? If you want, you can send it to me and I'll shoot it some to make sure it isn't... LOL!

    well, i'm off to montana next week, I'll be sure to range test it and let you know how it is. I'm also gonna take my AK, but i'm going to be embarrassed by my California bullet button. :-(
