I have two of these rifles. Recoil is stout. It does however, make for a very light,accurate brush deer rifle. The action is very strong. I have never seen nor heard of one failing. The .32 WSPL was a common conversion in the 60's

One still has the original .310 adjustable sight. It shoots just a little high at 50 yards but shoots to the point of aim at 150 yards. The marks on the sight are very close if you use a 150 grain bullet. A 125 grain bullet really zips out of this little rifle.
The other barrel has Lyman sight and a very tall front sight. It still shoots high and a 6 o'clock hold is needed.
Years ago I tried the Remington 'Accelerator" sabot 22 bullet and had good accuracy at 100 yards. 3,400 fps was reachable.

Also, the bullet with so little spin rate is very unstable when it hits the target. Over penetration will not be a problem.
