    Traditions quality

    My wife needed to shoot a 32 rifle because of a spine problem where she could have no recoil. I purchased a Traditions Crockett 32. After a few trips to the range, accuracy became terrible. I dismantled the rifle and found so many problems that a "simple fix wasn't going to correct them. The...
