This winter I plan to put together a lightweight mountain rifle with a fixed 6x scope and have heard nothing but good things about Sightron.
Before I decide on this model, I figured I'd find out what others had to say about it.
My henry 22 magnum is 5.5 lbs and is horrible to shoot offhand due to the lightweight. It doesn't settle down in the offhand position which is my bread n butter shooting position. Because of this experience with this rifle, I'd never own a dmn sheep/goat rifle that is that light like others who go this route. A 6 lb. model 94......great off hand. A 6.5 lb Browning lever rifle......even better.
Here's the rifle I'm going to put together and a fixed 6x is a definite.
Browning Lever Rifle chambered for 358 Winchester (6.5lbs)
Talley lightweight rings (3 0z)
Sightron fixed 6 (12 0z)
225 grain Nosler Accubond fullpower handload handload (2550 fps-2650 fps). I just received my chonograph so load development will start after the end of moose season.
