at first i really didnt see the difference between a 300 dollar combo gun and a more expensive gun without a scope or anything, i really just thought how much of a difference can the quality be?? well after buying a ruger american which isnt even that expensive of a gun and comparing it to my mossberg 100 atr i really do see the difference in paying for quality the ruger shot alot smoother and had way better recoil pad compared to the mossberg haha now i know!!

Go shoot a browning a-bolt or a Winchester model 70
And your head will spin.

Ive handled but never shot the ruger American. I have two M77's and ruger puts out a quality product

If you like the American when your ready to upgrade again I strongly suggest you take a look at a M77

Good, but a Ruger compared to some other options will surprise you again

You should see how much I spent on scope rings before I wised up.
I have a gallon zip lock bag full of stupid ring and mount choices.
