    • So when you fall in the mud you can spend all day cleaning it out of all them holes.
      I’m sure this is a fine rifle but I’ve got to have a stock that doubles as a canoe paddle and a war club.
      That forend looks more for bench rest bipod then hunting.
      I do not think I would trade this for my Mossberg 800B

    • “Why do so many new bolt rifles have to look like an AR?”

      Because the AR platform lines are more easily ‘morphed’ in design into the ‘edgy cool’ look lines that are popular with the newer ‘younger’ generation of gun owners.

      • I am the ‘younger’ generation. I’m thoroughly exhausted by angular designs at this point and want people to go back to making pretty things.

  1. Cool, fine, cool. Price?

    I went and checked, $2600.

    Hmm, 35% premium on a Ruger RPR in .308 or 6.5 CM. Worth that? Hard to say. I look forward to a review.

    • This is probably one of those cases where it wasn’t made for those who want to know the price. But, there’s a market for them, and they’ll do some business, which is a good thing.

    • “Sorry Faxon, that’s likely trademark infringement.”

      I was thinking along the same lines…

  2. christ this page has turned into a fudd hangout. Just because you can’t afford it doesn’t mean it isn’t better. go play with your savages poors.
