Yup It's an awesome weapon for sure, the only bad thing about it is that it has a stainless steel barrel..
Under some hunting conditions those barrels give off a lot of glare.
It's just my opinion but I think Stainless steel barrels are the worse types to use for most hunting conditions, they are COOL but it isn't the best choice for a hunting Rifle.
A guy I use to hunt with had a greyhawk. I could find him any where and it was easy to see him move through the woods with that thing. That being said I do have a couple that are stainless, one is that Savage long range heavy fluted barrel so its a sit and shoot long range. Thought about painting the whole gun with that paint that's made for such.
Guys, I resisted buying a stainless for years. But I love the one I got last season. It's a Tikka and it has a matte finish - NO glare. I also noticed that the new Ruger Hawkeye is different from their original stainless which was like a mirror!
