Many years ago this rifle was a pretty good replacement for the old M-1 Carbine, cheap,easy to shoot, indestructible, and was completely at home sitting behind the sit of my pickup. The one I had would shoot 2 1/2 inch groups. After about 6 or 7 years, I replaced it with the Ruger Ranch Rifle. What a mistake that was, it would not hold groups smaller than 5 inches. It didn't take long to dump that one. I now hear that Ruger has re-engineered the rifle, and it back to being a pretty good rifle. Anyone shooting one of the new ones?
