Good riddance for me

I bought one. The wing safety was too difficult to operate. Sent bolt to factory. They loosened it up to be operable with left hand. Not a sporter. Excellent from a bench. Bought it after reading Chuck Hawks review. I called him and he did not know squat about the rifle. He suggested hunting with it off safety after I explained the problem. Squirrel hunting though bush off safety, dumb. Coming on target and then struggling with a safety, stupid design. Hence, discontinued. Chambered original polymer tips, not the brass hollow points at all.
