Re: New rifle value shopping
I'm partial to the A-bolt, but you're really comparing apples to oranges when it comes to price at least. The Ruger($300) is far less expensive than an A-bolt($500).
That said, the Ruger looks like a fine rifle with features that are similar to the Browning. I've been a fan of the short bolt lift, the tang safety(where it's supposed to be) and the box mag. Browning has used for decades. The Ruger looks to be a very nicely priced option for those same features. The magazine is a little different, but the bolt lift and safety are comparable. The pillar bedding/free floated bbl is a nice feature...Brownings are glass bedded and free floated.
You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!
