New Short Range Rifle

My wife calls it "Stubby"

308
Action, trigger and stock from a Savage Model 12
15" Lilja barrel, bedded and braked by ATRS in Calgary
Sightron 3, 1-7 scope

When I got the build back, I couldn't figure out if it was dog ugly or the prettiest thing I'd ever seen... Still not quite sure, but it shoots half a minute and with the Sightron on 1 power, I can shoot with both eyes open like a red dot.

I like it! Always room for a compact rifle in the collection. The scope seems a bit out of place visually, but likely works just fine.

I like it as well, like it alot. Not sure about the optic either. If It was mine, would have iron sights. Thats an ideal woods/brush gun for around here, for short range deer. No optic really needed, IMO neither is the brake.

Re: New Short Range Rifle

Nothing is 'legal' in New York State except what the gubbener deems legal.....

You can have a pellet rifle right???

We have some interesting laws here too. No silencers and if the stock folds, it's considered a pistol and is licensed accordingly. A silencer gets you 10 years in Marquette.

Still better than NY State and a whole bunch better than NYC. We were discussing the biker thing on another forum and the comment was made that if that happened here, the driver of the SUV probably would have used a firearm in self defense. As it was, he had nothing buit the police and seconds count, not minutes. Very sad.
