I spent the last couple of days putting the finishing touches on some rifles I've been putting together.
First one is a M700 Classic .300 Savage that I traded for, this will probably be my daughters elk rifle when she is able to tolerate the recoil. All I did was put the old Burris FF on top of it. Looks like I need to get new rings as the ones that came with it are a little tall.
This one is an old stagger feed .243 that is finding new life as a .250 Savage. 24" Shilen barrel, and 2-7X32 Vortex Viper, Sharp Shooter bolt handle, and Leupold weaver style bases and rings, tuned older three screw trigger, B&C Carbelite stock, and weighs in at 8lbs 4oz.
Not a new rifle but one I put on a diet.
M70 Extreme Weather in .270 Win weighed 9lbs 8oz with the old scope Vortex Viper 6.5-20X44, stock, sling, and 5 rounds down the magazine.
New weight with McMillan FWT stock Edge technology, Talley mounts, and 3.5-10X40 VX3 with CDS a svelte 7lbs 13oz.
