Well said Boattale And right on FrankenMauser about that great 77/22 - 10 shot mag.
"Iron sights" nope don't what them or need them.
NOW, all of what has been posted really points out the truth of what I said earlier about your itch being scratched, OR maybe better said, "what floats your boat."
No offense intended here, but with the itch I HAD, - gone now it's been scratched - many of the rifles listed would not have made the grade.
Doesn't make your choice bad, just points out that your "needs" were different then mine.
Sure would be fun to get together for a shoot out like my friend Jack and I had. Same day, same bench, same boxes of ammo.
