Advantages and disadvantages
This rifle mass production, but its utility and relative cheapness of not be affected. Appearance will satisfy the most demanding aesthete gun, and shooting performance of the sniper world.
Very simple but reliable design with two docking lugs locks the barrel with the optimal node for this rifle density. It is traditionally, though erroneously, called “mazeroski”. However there are some fundamental differences: the striker is cocked is not at the time of lifting of the handle, and the last millimeters of the turn and the shutter when it is lowered.
In addition, the third tooth is missing, will the rear ring of the receiver. It is worth noting the usability of this item rifle, the ball of the handle which is slightly flattened and has a notch. Due to the special polishing technology, looks like fish scales, the shutter glides smoothly and not wedged in the rearmost position.
- The barrel is tight to the forearm, which does not meet today’s fashion on the cantilever design, but it does not affect shooting performance, and the lack of clearance between it and the stock makes the rifle more protected from debris and dirt that inevitably occurs in any hunting. At the breech a massive steel tooth, transmitting all the energy of the impact at the box. The strength of the pairing is impossible, even too much, but it’s not bad.
- The trigger mechanism is very simple, in the American fashion descent similar to the scrapped glass swizzle sticks – a short and without warning. Force classic – four pounds (1.6 kilograms), the majority of hunters considered the best.

Fortunately, unlike the ADL model, it is equipped with a hinged lid with spring loaded feeder, so that the process of extraction of the cartridges is simplified.
- Varnished bed wood, American walnut is just gorgeous. In ergonomics, and appearance. Elegant slim fore-end with a well-developed notch ends black, plastic tip, between which is set a white strip. The same is and between a plastic butt plate. He is not cushioning, it’s gun classic. The comb of the butt is provided with a low pillow Monte Carlo, it does not interfere when shooting without optics.
In the splendor of the Lodge there is a small drawback: extremely sorry for this beauty to climb the woods. Although the durability of the paint coating and polishing is very high. If to avoid direct kick butt on the trees, over a dozen years of operation is only slightly scratched. AWO comfortable firing from all positions.
The rifle is relatively lightweight (3.3 kg with cartridges) and compact (just over a meter in length), it is not burdensome for the suspension of hunting and is suitable for use as a forwarding weapons.
