Want a good utility rifle to keep in my truck. Tough, accurate and dependable.
it's no tack driver and it heats up quick.
but it never jams, has a self cleaning garand type bolt, uses either .223 or 5.56 Nato which is fairly cheap and easy to find. Factory mags are easy to find.
I had a trigger job done to it which lowers the lbs of trigger pull from 11 to 3.9 andd that helps keep me on target.
i have since taken the scope off and use the ghostring instead. Like I said, it ain't a tackdriver but it's reliable.
Oh yeah, and it's not as scary as an AR or AK or some black rifle. It's a ranch rifle and if the SHTF, my neighbors won't be so scared of it as opposed to an AR or AK
