So far so good. I wanted the tan ranch rifle version but gave up trying to find one went with the green stock threaded one. Been great little shooter for the money. And availability of bigger mags.

I bought one that was factory threaded a few years ago. I really like mine. Great trigger.

I have the compact version like the one in your link. I used it for kill shots on caught gators and trapped hogs. It works just fine.

Great shooters. The rotary magazine has a little to be desired. I had no problem getting replacements from Ruger.

Yes I have that exact rifle. I’ve killed about 20 coyotes, 5 fox, 4 hogs, many coons. It rides with me everytime I go to the lease. You’ll be pleased.

The compact is so handy. Makes a great truck gun.
