Buds lists the Ruger stainless at $606 My Marlin target stainless was about 1/2 that AFTER I added a $75 rear sight to it.
HOw much is it going to cost to have a smith cut a dovetail?
I've not been impressed with the accuracy of the ruger rifles I have handled. It is sufficient for most hunting, but not target. Everywhere else they are great.
