Need some pointers, education, please.
Okay, this post has officially been cleared for take-off after an initial misunderstanding.
Experience has taught not to buy a "new" type of firearm or a "new" version of a firearm until it has been manufactured for at least a year and (hopefully) given the manufacturer some time to work the bugs out.
I'm thinking of breaking the rule. I really like takedowns (I've got a Browning SA22, a Marlin Golden 39A and one of the elusive Marlin 70PSS I was offered $350 for recently) and am thinking of getting a 10/22 TD.
Anyway, I've read a few posts here from disappointed buyers of the 10/22 TD. While these folks appear to be vastly outnumbered by satisfied owners, I still thought it would be prudent to ask the following question.
What should prospective buyers of the 10/22 TD looking for in terms of proper fit and finsih and so forth when inspecting one of these rifles before purchase?
I'll be sure to inspect the rifle closely before accepting it, but I could use some tips on what to look out for. Pictures would be great.
