The contents of the box were:

  • 300 AAC Blackout Handi-Rifle
  • Gun lock, locking hardware and instructions
  • Owner's Manual
  • NRA Pamphlet

I was a little surprised to see that the rifle didn't come with an offset hammer spur for cocking when a scope is installed.

First Impressions

My first impression was amazement on the shortness of the rifle.  The combination of short barrel, break open action and youth stock gives this rifle a 29.7" overall length.  I viewed shortness as a good thing considering I plan to add a suppressor.  My next impressions were the rifle felt light weight and the trigger pull seemed firm but OK (nothing great, but nothing bad).
