I wish I bought both! Both were on the rack when I got this.
I agree after the season is over I may replace scope rings with QD style warne rings just because. Likely never remove the scope. Just for the cool factor. And highly unlikely but never know may bang up the scope hunting and then could use irons.
If you can check one out I'd recommend it. The recoil factor alone. It's a trade off with weight I know. But it's also not a 10-12 pound target rifle, everytime I touch one off it surprises me the lack of felt recoil and makes me smile lol. I dig the African safari look too. Big fast back up irons. In case an upstate ny white tail charges me
Weight can be good or bad depending on where and how you use it. Where I hunt that is more than I'm wanting to carry.
Just got some 30-06 anmo today too. Including a box of the novel 55gr accelerators.
Great pictures to go with a great rifle.
A dremel tool. Added a bit of grip.
For what it is worth, I agree, you should do that. The Warne QD rings are superb and do hold zero.
It could very well be, Ill weigh it tomorrow loaded. I have a couple lighter options if I'm doing some walking though. My .308 Ruger American's billed weight is 6 pounds. And if I'm taking a scoped rifle on a drive its the one that follows me. Thick woods walking is a 870 smoothbore slug gun or a Ruger 44 carbine.
Nice rifle and pics.
Great guns! Mine is the newer rotary mag version. They are so light and handy, and pack a big punch.
Yep. Exactly for up close and personal... can't beat it.
that radial brake that Ruger is using does a great job, my GSR has very little recoil and it's nonexistent with my 350 MPR
Beautiful rifle. Are the sights usable when the rifle doesn't have a scope on? The stock made mine close to useless on the CZ I bought.
Yes it shot a bit to the right and I adjusted the rear but didn't like how it looked adjusted so I put back to "centered"
