Attached: The T3 with new 3-9x Leupold VX-2. The action length provides good ring spacing for the scope.
For those who don't know, the rifle comes with mounts and a grooved receiver. The forward base screw fits into a groove in the receiver to eliminate recoil- induced sliding.
The rifle with the new scope, but without sling weighs 7.6 lbs. It balances about a quarter-inch ahead of the front stock screw.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
