Looking for rifle for myself and son to have fun
What I want out of my rifle is American made, reliable, easy to clean and able to be used by both right and left handed shooters. I'm the lefty so I can deal, if its too pricey to take that into consideration. I have had a few casings go down my shirt after ejecting from my service weapon.
In fact my M16 is the only rifle I've ever had. So I'm new to all other rifles.
As mentioned in the subject, this rifle is for me and my older son to have fun and learn on. The future option for a scope would be nice but not a deal breaker.
Chamber load preferences. Bolt action is fine as long as I don't have to keep reaching for another round to load. Semi-Auto, only if it is not jamm sensitive. Like after 100 rounds it needs to be cleaned before continuing to shoot that same day/time.
New is not a requirement but local selection is very limited so new is fine. I'd like to keep the weapon and a carrying case (soft is fine) at or under $200.
Please let me know which of the above preferences, the rifle you suggest, does not fit. I don't expect a perfect rifle for under $200.
Thank you for your suggestions. I do have a Gander Mountin not to far from me, otherwise its some local dealers which deal in top price due to low volume (except for used which I will check before pulling the tigger on the buy)
