So I am considering of buying one of these little gems in .243 youth for my new predator gun.
6.25 pounds, controlled round feed and compact little package are what appeals to me besides the price of course. This is mainly due to cause lets face it. It is going to ride on my back in a backpack while snowmaching so lightweight would be nice. As would the small overal length of the gun. Tought about going Tikka, but it doesn't come in a youth gun and I'm hoping that my predator gun in .243 could also do double duty as a first center fire big game hunting rifle for my little ones when I plan of getting some of my own or even for my niece and nephew, hence the youth model.
Anyone have any experience with this rifle?? Not looking to spend over $400 just for the rifle. So it really comes down to the Stevens or th Marlin unless I find a good deal on a used gun.
Thanks for any input.
Also does anyone know where I can get my hands on these locally?
