First of all, Sorry for the blurry pictures. I bought this on January 2 I believe, It was packed in cosmo. I got it for 100$ OTD I'm guessing it was one of the long rifles in 8x50 but redone to 8x56r. Its a fun rifle to shoot but somewhat painful after 5 rounds. the rifleing is very strong but the bore is a little dark. Nice little rifle though. And look where they put the horrible import stamp..right over the serial number...shameful..
