I'm impressed too. Good Ol'e American engineering and machining. The built in scope mounts on the receiver is a very nice touch as well. When you figure on paying 200+ bucks for a good stable mount the receiver is not to much more expensive than going the traditional route of building a rifle. Hopefully as they start selling more the price may even come down a little more. I want one bad, but am financially embarrassed at the moment . Things will turn around, God has always provided for me very well .
