Was looking for a mid range, economical target/range gun with moa accuracy. Might also serve as a deer rifle for my daughter to learn with if she is adamant about pursuing it and maintains interest. It seems quality is, or at least was very hit or miss and I read a pretty dismal review from ChuckHawks and the two test rifles sent for review were total duds back to back with no resolution from Ruger. I was just wondering what the consensus is on them here because I know quite a few of you guys have them. I'm specifically looking for input on the .223 variant. I'm hoping the handful of negative reviews I read were just the results of a glitch in QC. Often times these problems get sorted out...verdict?
