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.

Bankers, the next gen of Varmint... There like racoons, only around when your not and always messing up your stuff...
