You can also convert it to a take-down handy carry gun for the field or the vehicle. Bought one so converted - its a handy little guy.
I call it 'Junkyard Dog', because it has a mean bite on both ends (recoil is somewhat strident).
But for what goes bump in the night when camping, its of some comfort. And because your gun isn't finely finished, you don't mind getting it a little dinged up anyway.
I've used 'bar-b-que' pit paint for a no maintenance finish on some of my guns, the bottom SB one of them.
