Re: Light weight midrange rifle ??'s
I just wish Tikka had a 3 lug bolt. I love my Browning A-Bolt's low bolt lift.
That's why I'm looking at a Ruger American.
Surprisingly to me all the owners' reports on it say it is an accurate rifle. Guess that hammer forged barrel is a good one. Great trigger and bedding system too.
Yeah, the American has a cheap feeling stock but that can be remedied with some filling compound in the forearm and buttstock. There's a YouTube video on it.
Ruger needs to have a rubberized overmould on at least the pistol grip and the forearm.
Maybe some textured truck bed liner painted on those areas (masked off first, natch) and then painted over with a 2-part epoxy paint would do the trick.
Little customizations like that are what makes a rifle your very own and gives pride of ownership.
