Re: Deep cut Fluting on Barrels
So basicaly what you guys are saying is that because a guys wants his rifle as light as possible that he needs to loose weight ? what if one can't trim any more off his waist or butt , or what if just maybe a guy has a heart condidtion and evry ounce of extra weight counts when he has to pack that rig?
Pesonaly , I'd be willing to say that I'm in better physical shape than probably anybody else here. At 6'3" right now I'm weighing in at 285lbs at about 8% bodyfat withing the next 6 weeks I'll drop another 8-10lbs and and the body fat will be around 2-4% thats stage weight. I also train with the local SWAT team where we run at a fast ass pace 1.5 miles in full gear weapon and all the run has to be done in less than 10 min. I also do some competive powerlifting in the off season , I'd say that with a 500+lb bench and a 700+lb squat that carying a 15lb gun woulden't be a problem. But if I can get the same accuracy with a 10lb gun I'd much rather carry that
In short I guess what I'm saying is that just because a guy wants his rifle a light as possible doesen't meen that he "NEEDS" it as light as possible thats just what he "WANTS"
Anyway , so with Badger making alloy trigger guards and scope bases what is the weight differance between their steel ones and the new alloy ones. I would think that if you used an Alloy base rings and triggerguard that you could probably trim off a pound? What alloy is it their using?
Chris did you ever get a chance to play with that Aluminum/lithium alloy I sent you? I have been tinkering with a bit at work and personaly I don't care for how it cuts.
