Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?
Look at it this way. Feinstein hates detahable magazines in rifle application as well has hangun. Nothwithstanding, I prefer one when weight isn't a consideration.
If my ultimate goal was a super lightweight rifle, a side feed, multiple round rifle will be lighter in the same caliber as a bottom feed magazine rifle because the magazine weighs something even empty. Having said that, an alternative for me is a flush mount magazine. I don't care for one that sticks out, even though I have a couple rifles that do stick out, my 'go to' rifle is a flush mount.
It's a matter of preference and a matter of weight.
