this is a good weapon you want, but if it were me i would give serious consideration to the AK 5 Basic, but it depend on what you want to do with the new weapon at home. another good choice would be one of the lighter caliber and weight rifles from DPMS Panther. you should check out their site and see if there is something you like. their prices are reasonable and you get a fine quality weapon. other people will talk to you about remington rifles and these are all quality make weapons and you should listen to some of these guys who will promote the remington 700 and 700P and the 10/22. these are very good rifles too. but again it just depend on what you want to use the rifle for. good luck.

the thing i like about the rifle is that it is compact..i am a short armed man..so you can understand why i want a rifle with these dementions

it one reason why my pops got the Walther G22 Black A3 .22 caliber bullpup carbine for ryo. and it fit arm perfect and ryo just love it so much. there are nice carbine to choose from at DPMS Panther too with adjusting stock. ryo new carbine have ajusting stock too. small size weapon for us little guys can still give us big firepower neh.
