An oversized knob allows for easy manipulation; it can also be replaced. Working the bolt in the action was very smooth.
The tapered two-lug bolt has a Sako-style extractor.
The cheek riser allows better eye placement when mounting a large-objective scope.
Note the slots in the spacers, which allow them to be removed without completely unscrewing the recoil pad screws.
The ambidextrous magazine release is pressed forward to dump the magazine. The magazine was easy to feed into the CTR. The steel magazine is rugged. Replacements are harder to find than PMags for the Ruger and much more expensive.
