its a real nice gun but it needs some tweaking to get it just right. Would prefer SS as well. That thin steel barrel would get hot after only a couple shots.

FG, I haven't had any problems with my barrel getting hot, ever,
and anyone that feels the need to tweak a weapon that shoots sub-moa out of the box
probably has a lengthy history of dealing with poor shooting or low quality weapons that always required tweaking!

i shoot over 5,000 rounds year from an assortment of muzzleloaders that the Vortek while a nice gun would start throwing shots after 2 shots out the barrel. A good solid 5 minute cool down was needed in order to achieve solid accuracy. The trigger shape is also uncomfortable and tends to make you pull in an upward motion, increasing the trigger pulls feel. That was one huge reason I did not do an entire lot of shooting. They need to straighten that trigger design out and then add a good recoil pad, then it will be almost perfect.

The ceracoat itself is easily scratched off.

We'll see how my cva accura mountain rifle compares.
