This rifle has been on my bucket list for several years now. Found one at my LGS about a month ago for a pretty good price. Explained to my wife how important this rifle is to me and she agreed to let me buy it on the credit card and sell a few rifles to pay for it. I sold two AK74's with mags and ammo and sold an old SKS that I haven't shot in years and all three rifles have just been sitting in the safe. Yesterday the weather was finally good enough to shoot and was it worth the wait. That thing shoots like a champ. I was shooting a silhouette target at about 125 yds open sights and it is as accurate a rifle I have shot, even shooting surplus ammo. Checked the serial # and the rifle was made in 1982. Feels good to be able to cross a firearm off of the bucket list.
