This rifle is not made for decoration, only. It has a fine brass front sight for long distance shots as well as an approximately 4 mm white flip-up-front sight for fast and close shots. The rear three fold sight can be used on 50/100/150 meter. The 63.5 cm barrel is extremely precise and adds some weight to the front.
The trigger is set to 1000 gram and allows clean shots, but also has a hair-trigger option. The system has an extended top strap and trigger guard to distribute the pressure even to the rear stock. To transport smaller spares the extended trigger guard ends up into a pistol grip compartment. The butt plate is leather covered and allows a fast and smooth shouldering.
The fore-end (stock) has an engraved cross pin and a sharp checkering. It ends up in an black ebony nose. The rear stock has a length of 39,5 cm but can be fitted for free to the buyers measurements.
The rifle is scoped with a Swarovski Z6i 1-6 x 24 EE. It has a "circle dot" reticle and is mounted with a pivot mount. The pivot mount is engraved as well as the barrel. For completion, the gun is coming with a gun case. 8 Kynochi Softnose bullets are part of the set.
The caliber is shooting relatively smoothly for the size of the caliber. More information about the caliber is also available at this website under "Caliber" in the section bolt-action.
