My lightweight deer rifle is a remington model 7 in 7-08. Mine is the older version with an 18.5" barrel and walnut stock. It has open sights to use if I want and I have a leupold 2x7 mounted on it. Nice little rifle.

As to the suggestion of a lever in 357 I totally agree. My Marlin is my favorite of all my guns. I reload and have loads from full power 160gr softpoints to 36 caliber round balls loaded in 357 cases so they will feed through the action loaded for small game use. Its the one gun that could do for all my hunting from now on. Add a shotgun and I have it covered for hunting. At least where I hunt.
