I've not purchased a new firearm in awhile so figured it was about time.
I had a contender in 30-30 for many years and really enjoyed it, but traded it off a couple of years ago and regretted it ever since.
Found this little gem a few days ago and just had to have it.
Contender 14" custom trigger work, muzzle brake, G2 counter weighted forend, cerakoted, Kryptec Highlander graphics, Burris mount, Nikon Force BDC 2.5X8 scope, chambered in 30-30 Ackley Improved.
I've ordered a set of dies for it and have loaded up a hundred rounds of ammo for it using regular 30-30 dies to fireform the cases.
I've shot it a couple of times and it shoots well but it is LOUD!!!!! Price you pay for a muzzle brake I suppose but it sure keeps the muzzle jump down.
Now if I only had some deer here on the farm to try it out on...........

My first deer was with a contender in 7-30 Waters. I loved that rifle, but it was stolen.
