I wonder if that magazine fits an M1A?

Big 5 sporting goods sells em for 100 or so on sale all the time. Not sure how to pick a "good one", I just compared the ones the shop had where I got mine and picked what I thought looked the best. They should shoot right out of the box without issue.

The barrel is really short, the rate of twist isn't disclosed. Not certain what market they're trying to tap into- Remington and Savage black bolt guns have been selling well lately and you have to retrofit most of them to take a mag.
Price is pretty dear... for a Ruger....

Thinkin about a ruger model 77 "tactical", 308 with a short-ish 20 inch barrel...

Anyone own one/thoughts/similar in other brands

I own a couple smaller bore rifles, wanna go bigger.
Like the 308 (size, ammo cost, range), want something "sniper-like" that I can carry. Cost of the Ruger is good, leaves room for optics dollars.

Would be lots of fun would like the mag to be less "prominent", perhaps hold 6+1 instead of 10....

twist 1:10, weight 7 lbs barrel really short at 16.5 inches

Edit: The inexpensive Savage bolts are excellent for the dollars

+1 on the $299 Savages! I got one (22-250) for a kitchen coyote gun, sitting out on the back porch in the crap, put a 120 dollar scope on it, got some good quality factory ammoes, came home and sighted it in with a .7" group at 100 meters. You can't beat that combo for the money.

My 870...

Thought I would add to this thread with a pic of my trusty 870. I just got a cheapo mount from Dealextreme and added a old school Surefire 9Z with an upgraded LED bulb. The gun is an 870 Express with a Scattergun Technologies mag extension and 6 slot side saddle, Speedfeed forearm and a Vang extended safety. Pretty simple compared to some but effective nonetheless. I'm going to replace the buttstock with a shorter one for easier shouldering, so if any of you have one for sale let me know! Sorry for the crappy iPhone 3g photo. Happy New Year!

Not exactly a 'gun', but...

Can anybody recommend an airgun tuner for my Beeman R1?

The Enfield had a faster action than any Mauser and have a stripper clip loader. Ishapore Enfields make a nice Scout rifle.

$1K is really steep for what it is.

There was a time when I would have recommended the Remington 700 or Winchester model 70 without hesitation. I've owned both, and they're capable of exceptional accuracy. But in terms of price and performance, Savage rifles set a whole new standard.

I found one of those things on a portage along the Sturgeon River. I'll show it to you sometime. It's pretty neat. Has a built in folding sling shot and everything. Very indispensable.

It's in the box where I put it after finding it eighteen years ago.

What exactly is a 'Scout rifle'?
