This is a good buy, too bad they don't have the wood stock (also avail for lefties).
Working bolt, rather than a pull knob, good adjustable trigger (start heavy for the kids and then lighter during their learning/training curve), excellent peep sights. Good working sprung single shot "ramp" = easy loading. Two position safety that you can engage and safely eject live cartridge w/o pulling trigger. And accurate. Have to buy separate scope bases though, now available through Savage, but may have issues loading w/ the scope in the way; may be a way to use a small red dot on front base only? But prolly good to teach kids basics w/o scope anyway.
