Bought a Ranch Rifle back in the early 1980's, and put a lot of ammo thru it. I liked the ease of scope mounting on the Ranch version. Never a target gun, it would group between 2 and 3 inches at 100 yards, depending on what I fed it. Always reliable, fun to shoot, and wish I had kept it. I did add a Choate folding stock to make it easier to carry behind the seat of my truck, and a scope in quick detach mounts.

Personal opinion is a good thing, and everyone is entitled to one. The hard part is separating informed opinion from someone who is just blowing hot air....
