It is fairly light. Hopefully a 1-4 or 3-9 scope wont make it to much heavier.

Do you have a particular bullet in mind? What is the length and twist rate on the barrel?

Lets see how it shoots and if ammo becomes as common place as they say it will be. Im sure ammo (fmj) will be flowing as soon as they are happy w/ the design.

Well I received some 130gr Sierra SP ammo last week. I ordered a 3x9 for it Mon. planning on it being here before the weekend. To bad it just shipped today. Last time I order from that place. I think I'm going to give it a once over tomorrow regardless.

Oh yea, you gotta shoot that thing. Even if it's just with the irons or your Aimpoint. The itch to go shoot a new gun is worse than the one you get from a $2 hooker.

Gotta say again, that is a beautiful rifle, MJ! Fine job, and I have to say I'm partial to the receivers, name's got a nice ring to it!
