    One of my buddies just got one of these for his 21st birthday in .17HMR and I was confused when I heard the name and saw the pictures of it. He does not have it yet as his parents bought it 4 days ago and there is a 10 day wait period (damn California!).

    Have any of you heard of this gun? I think it actually looks pretty cool and cannot wait to see this thing and take it out. I already have a .17HMR so I know the round is decent.

    This one is his model:

    His uncle bought him 10 boxes of ammo too. Damn that must be nice at ammo being $12+/box.
    So what are the opinions/general consensus on this gun or brand?

    I have heard everything from really good things to really bad things about them. I would be interested in what your friend thinks of it.

    Also, I would say with .17, ditch the irons and get a scope :o

    Yeah, we are already looking for a scope. From reading RimfireCentral, I see everyone has problems with the .17 and much less problems on the .22wmr.
