Like mine on my 196 series bought new, with mods, Accu-strut, front and rear shock absorbers, Masen flashhider/stabalizer, hand loads, 65 gr Sierra
3/4" at 100yrds. Scope Bushnell 3-9x40 multi-X. Lock up with the trigger group and action is very tight. Action doesn't have any movement I can detect front to rear or side to side. Guess it depends on what you get when you buy. My action and barrel are stainless so I liked the look. Shot around 800rounds through it before I did the mods and handloads. Before that accuracy was the typical "3-4" at 100yrds.
