Well you would never guess. It's a rifle I know will shoot at the point of aim and in which I have complete confidence there will never be a jam. The action is smooth and swift and it is good for 200 yards. There is no doubt the safety works. Just don't pull the hammer back or depress the the lever. It's a Winchester 375 Lever Rifle, a Big Bore HTR. No, it's not a dangerous African game rifle, but then that was not the question now, was it :) A 225g bullet at 2300 fps is nothing to take lightly, however.
