    I haven't shot that particular model, though I haven't heard of any issues with it.

    The new versions of the 817 with the oversized muzzlebreaks are about the silliest add-on I've seen, though if I were 11 years old and pining for a rimfire rifle the sight of it would probably make me shake like a Lab in a duck blind with excitement.
