You won't like that rifle.

Let me take it off your hands.

I owned one just like it.

I shot it twice and I gave it away. Not sold, I gave it away to a a guy who was 6'-7" and weighed over 300 pounds. He shot it only one time and sold it.

Cajun Blake is wrong though. It kicked worse than a scalded mule.

Can you change the recoil pad?
I put a Sims AirTech pad on my 7mm mag- Tikka hunter and itís a pleasure to shoot.

Put a muzzle break on it. I have a Browning x bolt 7 mag with a break and it kicks less than my 25-06.
