If you want to you know whether a rifle is any good, look at the little stuff. When I get a test gun whose Weaver-style bases are not screwed tight, that means there was someone on the assembly line who did not give a s--t. It’s a warning flag. A few SHOT Shows ago I was shown a British heavy rifle whose makers were charging a fortune for it. The hand-rubbed oil finish had not filled the pores of the walnut. I would bet you a Bentley Continental GT that there were other things wrong with it, high price notwithstanding. Some gun companies don’t give a damn what they put out, and some do.
