    Shot a packet of 20 factory rounds off no problem. More a good push than a hard recoil.

    I did take off the peep site though as found easier with open sights.

    I have now only got 2# 45/70 rifles for my club shooting, a Pedersoli falling block and a Harington and Richardson trapdoor,It's an awesome calibre and very easy to reload being a staight case.
    This is a nice rifle with good providence, Earl Wyatt stock, Din Collings barrel!
    You get used to the recoil!

    I had a case of the Green Monster when I saw this Rifle the first time.
    Pleased that I got it.
    I have recently bought a Springfield Trapdoor in 45/70 but its a bit too original to shoot alot.
    This however...
