Thanks for posting. I get American Hunter but I don't remember seeing that article in the magazine.

I like this comment: "The only complaint at all about the gun’s cycling is that it makes a metallic “boing” sound that reverberates after each shot."

I thought the same thing when I first shot mine, particularly with a set of muffs that touches the stock. Whether it is the material or the geometry, something in the stock allows that harmonic. It did not take long for me to put some polyethylene foam inside the stock to damp that reverberation.

Concerning the sound, not that it bothers me, but i had the idea to fashion a little oval rubber damper, and fit it inside the wood where it meets the receiver, you have to disassemble the stock for that, this way the rear of the bolt makes very little contact with the back end of the receiver because the end that protrudes from the oval hole at the back of the receiver meets with the rubber damper which absorbs most of the resonance, try it, it does no harm.

The gun writer reviewed the synthetic stock version. Mine is synthetic as well. Closed cell foam did a good job of damping out the vibration.
