Beauty and accuracy all in one package

Bought this gun at local gun shop before things go down. Bought a decent set of sights to go with it. Took to the gun range 2 weeks later and man I can’t say enough about the quality and accuracy of this beautiful rifle. Zev please keep building these rifles to the same specs you always do. So happy to spend the extra money and get something so reliable. If you can find one it’s worth every penny. Thanks Zev for such a beautiful piece of equipment.

Accuracy and beauty all in one

Went to local gun shop a couple of weeks ago and saw her sitting on the shelf. Asked to hold and just admired the looks. Got a set of sights and went to the gun range a couple of weeks later. After shooting her and looking at the accuracy of the gun I say keep up the great work. To have something look so hot and shoot so straight I was impressed. Don’t know how you did it Zev but keep on building them. I can’t say enough about how great she shoots. If you want accuracy and looks spend the money. I’m so happy I did.
