I ordered it, they sent it, and everything went through very smoothly.

Since the product wasn't made by Gunprime, it does not reflect on them the quality of the product or the packaging it was boxed in.

As for the rifle itself (Ruger American 30-06), it is an inexpensive rifle, and as such, my only "buyer beware" caveat is that you will need to do some work to it if you're looking to build out as a quality rifle. The chamber and barrel are where Ruger put their money, and that's the reason I went with this choice. That, and I love to tinker and turn inexpensive things into works of art.

A few things to note:
- The stock is synthetic, so anticipate using some sort of compound to stiffen it and bed the receiver. Don't bother with a full bedding; these barrels are designed to float. It's a decent stock shape, however, and unless you're going to spend $250+ on a new stock, you may be better off just modifying this one.
- The stocks forend, on mine, has been reinforced from the factory to keep it from flexing so much when on a bipod. Some older versions didn't have this and the have to modify it to keep the stock from contacting the barrel.
- The finish is rough. Very rough. The stamped marks on the action were not filed down or smoothed out in any way. I plan on refinishing it in time, but it'll be the last thing I do.
- The picatinny rail is a really good rail, so you don't have to change it out unless you have to for some good reason.
- The bolt and receiver were never finished, so they still have milling marks on them, and it sounds like a zipper when you work the action. They'll work out in time, assuming I don't polish them out first.
- The bolt is NOT designed to be disassembled by anybody other than Ruger, so tuning it will be a bother. Fortunately, they did a pretty decent job at the factory, so the internals aren't really something to worry about.
- The style of union between the action and barrel is a screw in type that leaves a gap - this is how they adjust the headspace for the cartridge - and that can be a pain to keep clean.
- The magazine/well pairing is the worst I've ever seen in my life. It does the job, but I am excessively disappointed in it. To make matters worse, Ruger has no conversion kit for it (long action) to use AI magazines. I'm working on a remedy for this, and only one company I've found has an existing fix, but you have to do some surgery on the stock in order for it to work. It also costs almost $300. Not sure if that's a worthwhile investment for this rifle.
- The trigger is a good trigger. It just needs some work done to it to make it a better trigger. There are plenty of online sources for modification suggestions. At worst you would get a Timney trigger, but is 180$ worth it for *you*?

Overall, is it worth it? Yes. Unless you hate working on rifles yourself, or have undue expectations on a budget rifle. The magazine/well fitment is going to irritate you, at the least, but it does work for the magazine they provide. On a scale of five stars, I give this rifle a 3. It would have been 4 (price being considered here), if the finish were better and the magazines didn't feel toy-like. If they'd finished the receiver and bolt, I'd go ahead and give it five stars *for what it is*, even if they added another $50 to the price tag to make up for it.

All that being considered, I'm going to be holding onto this rifle for a long, long time.
