In my head Winchester = made in USA. When I arrived home I look more closely at the rifle and saw on the barrel : made in Russia! I called the dealer and he told me that these rifles were very solid and well made...Yes it was solid but very unpleasant to shoot with. The bolt action was rough and very stiff. I told to myself that it's because it's new but it never changed. So last Thursday I sold it and bought a Henry the next day. It's a Golden Boy 22LR. What a difference! My wife hated to shoot with the Winchester but love the smooth lever action of the Henry. OK, a bit long but don't forget my question about your M.B.A.
No it's good, smooth, no problems at all, I really like this gun and choose it over my others for varmint control. Also the bolt comes out real easy, I can then leave it out with no worry , stash the bolt where only I know it is, With a squeeze of the trigger it's back in and ready to go. I have never needed to sight it in either. Made in Brooklyn New York to boot.
