QuoteDavid you must have had a day off in the thinking department asking a young boy to carry a 9lb rifle! Were you trying to put them off?
QuoteOne reason I dislike the Thompson type single shots is they just look so ruddy awful to me. None of he lines flow and one can see they came from an angular design pistol. Oh I know others luv em ................................................ I just cannot see it.
Quoteonto the 270 majestic and made up some reduced load with 130 grain bullets. Drop the velocity down to about 2600-2700 and I feel they should cope well enough.As I know I can get a spare stock for one of these BSA's I would do so and cut the LOP down too. Doing this would end up with a rifle all up ready to hunt weighing less than 8lbs and closer to 7 1/2 lbs. Enough to help handle recoil but light enough for them to manage without too much trouble.
QuoteI hope you new Savage fit the bill for you and the boys.
QuoteBe aware of the influence the weight of the rifle has on felt recoil.
QuoteAs far as that stock goes, some green and brown paint would do wonders, but I know how you like the black plastic look, so it's probably just fine for you as is.
