Re: Light rifle

My 280AI is built on a pre 64 M70 action with a 24"fwt pac-nor barrel and bedded in a rimrock (28oz.) stock, with a 3x9x40 leupy in talleys it's at 7 3/4 lbs. and carries/balances very nicely. I also have 2 mcm edge stocks, the one on my pre 64 M70 fwt '06 weighs 23oz. and is a great stock. If you hurry over to 24hourcampfire.com you can save some dough on the edge, just look for santa.

Re: Light rifle

Wondering if the 22" barrel in the 280 ackley if your gaining what the benefit of the ack. Maybe a regular 280 would do as well. As far as weight i have the ultimate light weight gun. 25x284 from ultra lite arms. I bought it used from a friend though. It has 24" barrel, 30 mm 4.5-14 leupold 40 mm lens, uncle mikes sling with 4 loaded rounds, harris bipod, weight: 7 1/4 lb. I got it with dies, and brass for 1k.

Re: Light rifle

Look at Lone Wolf
The Summit XL I have finished at 16 oz with buttpad, bedding, texture and paint.
We are working on a new build using a Summit that should finish at 18 oz or so.

Light, strong, and worth the money if you do the work yourself.

Did I read correctly on a different site that Lone Wolf will only sell you the light stock if they bed your rifle into it?

Re: Light rifle

Well, sort of! I believe the stocks they finish themselves I think are a little lighter like 14oz.
I did the work on an XL blank that came out to 16oz.

Its finished now with one elk under its belt. Gotta get some new pics of it.
