Agreed!! The Stevens mod.15 is a single shot bolt gun and it is an excellent shooting gun. Actually, when I want to concentrate on my shooting form, it's a great little gun to practice with.If you can shoot it at a target ... it's a target gun!! LOL I have an old Stevens single shot and it's a little tack driver. I do shoot it alot and it's my backup gun for the 50yd scoped class.
