Here are some better pictures of the wood and a couple of the the sights and action. The action is smoothing out slowly with a bunch of cycling and the trigger is still heavy with fair amount of creep but at least it's smooth. You'll note that the action, barrel, and magazine are a satin finish blued steel rather than highly polished. Yes, it's cheaper to produce but I like the low glare effect and overall the carbine looks very nice, surprisingly nice in fact.
The forearm is nice and thin and the checkering on the forearm and pistol grip is cut, not laser burned in or pressed. Length of pull is 13 7/8" which is the same as my Rossi Rifle (1" longer than my Rossi carbine). The schematic shows that the stock is held on with a rod through to the recoil pad which makes for a stronger stock; nice touch. The drop of the comb is similar to my Rossis and it shoulders perfectly for me as the sights come up ready to go.
Nice rich walnut makes me smile!!
I'm very happy with these sights.
Wood to metal fit is decent by today's standards and yep, it's got a rebounding hammer with no half cock. We'll have to see if it has the same problems the Japchesters do. Note the d&t on the rear receiver top for a 'carry handle'. The receiver is an angle eject version. If you look closely at the hammer, you can make out a threaded hole for the supplied hammer spur; again for a 'carry handle' which can be screwed into either side.
