Re: Mountain Rifles Inc 30-378

I own a couple of 30-378's but they're SAKO M995s and fairly heavy but no brakes. The 30-378 does have a bit of recoil. You might want to use hearing protection.

Here's all I know about Mountain Rifle Inc. (just a web search).

BBL: 26 inch round
Stock: composite
Gauge: 30-378
Finish: black
$3,750.00USD (sold at auction).

It looks like an ultra-light design. Is that what your's looks like? . What does yours weigh?

X2 on the hearing protection. I don't have a 30-378 but I do have a Accumark 338-378 and I wear plugs and muffs cause it is LOUD!!!

Recoil is reasonable but the report is off the chart.
