Not this specific model, but I do have the JW-27 sporter and the TU-KKW clone of the Mauser KKW WWII training rifle - all have the same Chinese-copy of the basic BRNO action. I call it the "CZ for half the price!"
Fit&finish are lacking, but they are superb shooters.
I put a Tasco 4x on mine when i got it and never regretted it. When I lived in Valdez I was a ptarmigan hunting fiend. That is where i really learned how to shoot accuratelly and just how accurate these little bolt guns are. I regulary took ptarmigan with headshots, offhand, at 30-80 yard ranges with that set up and bulk .22lr ammo.
Everyone should have at least one of these, I dont know of a more accurate for the price firearm out there.
I purchased mine in 1991 and mounted a 4 power Browning scope (made by Burris in those days) on it in Weaver 1" tip-off rings and have never looked back. A fine little rifle. If you ever look underneath that syrupy dark finish on the stock you will find a very white piece of hardwood.
Unfortunately, the Chinese had a habit of using a very soft wood for many rifle stocks - I've seen this on Norinco SKS carbines as well as the JW-series .22 rifles. It dings and scratches very easily - one reason these guns tend to look ratty with time.
