I built this rifle for myself in 1997 for hunting. There is nothing shiny on the rifle. It has been used for silhouette shooting, woods walks and winter biathlons (wooden snowshoes and traditional muzzleloader). It has hunted all over this country and Canada for deer, elk, moose and caribou. It shows a bit of wear, but I consider a little wear a badge of honor.
