How does it shoot? Did you do anything to hop it up, or is it stock?

Mike Melick or Randy Mitchell may have the lever catch.

The stock was broken in two places when I got it. It would not cock. The inletting was too small. Looks like the action may have been forced into the stock. I had to press it out of there. Sanded the inside to make the action fit.
Since I was going to spray it with beadliner, I glued up the stock and gave it a rough sanding but did not put too much effort into making it pretty. The stock was very wavy. Used a block to level it out a bit.

Lubed it up, but left the internals alone. The trigger is very stiff, and creepy. It has enough travel to feel like a 2 stage at this point. Its very hard, then when it gets halfway, it gets much lighter. I expect it will get better with use.
It shoots ok, though I have not sighted it in yet. A ear plug on the right ear would be a good idea as you are right up against the piston/breach area.
