    Better than Rossi, know of a couple of guys in Kapiti NZDA that use them.

    Baikal single shot also another option, takes apart and fits into a daypack...

    I have one in .44mag and it is a much better rifle than my mates Rossi in the same caliber or a biikal .308 I once had.

    Very solid but gunworks took a lot of meat out of the barrel for me

    I have one in 308. Have a Reflex suppressor on it, which is quite heavy. Still a compact little gun though. Seem to go for that before my bigger noisier machines most of the time.
    My only dislike is it has an ejector, which makes a hell of a click. And if I am not very particular about keeping the chamber clean, full shells stick and the ejector doesn't have enough grunt to pop them out. I would prefer an extractor.
