No, but I do have the .300 Blackout version of the same and love it.
Any questions I can answer let me know.

This is the same except for chambering / caliber.

I have one in 7.62X39 and am loving it. Soft shooting and very accurate. It uses Mini-30 mags which is great since I have a Mini 30, and plenty of factory mags!

Well I bought one .........

Added a Leupold 1-4x20 Turkey Plex scope, 2 Pro-mag 5rd AR mags and a paracord sling.

Completed 2 range trips now ....... sighting in at 27yds 2shot one hole to .3 inch groups with Winchester white box were the norm.

Today hot and muggy at 100 yds 1-2 inch groups were the norm..... IMO not bad with a 4x scope shooting at a 3" red dot. Winchester white box FMJ was shooting about 2" lower ( hitting at POA) than .55 gr soft point (hitting 2" above POA).

The Pro-mags hold 5 but will not cycle from closed bolt so I'm downloading the carry mag to 4 rounds.


I think this will be a handy little utility Coyote rifle for Penn's Woods.
