Ruger American 270

Purchased a Ruger American 270 based on positive reviews setting expectations for a reasonably good "economy" rifle. So far, favorably impressed with quality of manufacture. Reviews led me to expect a less than smooth bolt and just OK trigger. Wrong on both counts. Nothing wrong with the bolt smoothness of operation. See no reason to lap or otherwise fool with. Trigger is fine with no creep and crisp break. The adjustment does not provide the advertised range, but I have no problem with a 3 lb trigger for a hunting rifle. Accuracy has not been checked yet, but everything else better than expected. Good job Ruger.

great gun for the price and more accurate than most more expensive when adjusted for inflation from 30 years ago.
