It makes for a readily totable long gun (roughly 16X9 when folded). A lot of times I'll stash mine in a paintball gun bag and toss it in the back when traveling. The sights were ok, not great - my front sight may have been slightly canted... I mounted a Weaver converta-mount on the forestock and use it with a Millet red dot. That was a homebrew project - not a factory enabled option!
