Anyone own one of these? I like the iron sight option if this is versatile enough to use as a hunting and varmint rifle too. Thoughts and opinions?

I donít own one but I have shot them before (in .308, a friend was trying to sell it to me but it just did not do it for me. I think they are available in .243 as well). Frankly it was way too heavy for a medium game hunting rifle and the utility of open sights is over rated. In .243 it may make an alright predator gun but I think there are better ways to spend ones money. But that is just my opinion.
