Tryin' to figure the finished OAL of this rifle so I can go ahead and get a case before it's ready.

Thanks guys.

This is from a thread by Kirby.

Quote:
Not only that, its weight has been reduced dramatically. The standard medium 3 port PK weighs 6.5 oz. The "Slim" version is only 3.2 oz. They are the same length at 2.25" of length and add roughly 1.6" to the barrel length.

ss7mm,

Thank you very much. I'm sure glad somebody has a handle on this stuff and knows where to find it!

PS: Good luck elk hunting this year. I decided to hunt the westside elk season this year but I'm having second thoughts and biting my nails a bit... Have had good luck over east the last couple of years, but tired of watching branch antlered bulls walk by waiting for a spike, or, having to wait 'til the last 5 days of a 9 day season to shoot a cow IF I drew a permit. We'll soon find out how 'smart' my decision was...
