Yup like Don said - pick the one that will be most beneficial to you, the one you like. Shoulder each one and see which one fits you best. Ask to dry fire the trigger (make sure gun is clear first). Feel which one has the better trigger.
I would pick both of them up in your hands, throw them up against your shoulder and see how they both feel before making a decision. I think that has more to do with a good hunting rifle than make or model is how it handles in your hands
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
