It's an American company, American made - more accurate (IMO) than the old Ruger M77, it's a good, handy, accurate and light rifle..and on top of all of that, very inexpensive. Nothing really not to like about them.

Cheap rifle, accurate and durable. Bought my wife a lh model in 7-08. Sucker shoots lights out to 350 which is the furthest I've shot it. My only real gripe is the action could be a little smoother. No other complaints considering what you're getting and what you're paying.

Hey Chongo here is a link to a RAR LH .223 that I had listed in the classified. Just in case you want to get her another. Gun is ready for the field with good glass and a Timney trigger I dropped in it!!! Damn good buy

I have the Standard in 7m-08 and really like it. I bought it before I made the decision to get suppressors for my long guns, otherwise I'd have bought the Predator model. Took three deer with it this past season with 120gr Fusion-it's a killer.

Handy, fun, comes threaded for suppressor, I love those things. I haven't bought one, but I fired one in .243 and it was very pleasant.
