im 16 and just got this today. my dad has the Ruger Blackhawk and i wanted something to compete with him. so far its a great gun, although the scope is incredibly hard to set compared to the ruger. i love the tru-glo fiber optic sights. it feels fairly powerful and as far as i can tell, is AMAZINGLY accurate. the ruger has more power, but the winchester is a better aimed shot. at a fraction of the cost to the $250 ruger, go with the $130 winchester. its very comparable.
Pros: accuracy, style, great scope and sight, the weight is absolutely perfect for long distance sniping.
Cons: everything is extremely stiff (the barrel is hard to crack, the safety is hard to switch etc) but hopefuly this will get better as it gets more used and broken in. aswell, the trigger pull is agonizingly long. you have to drag it probably close to an inch.
overall, i recommend it.
