The LGS has a very tempting joog deal (about $700 after all fees) on a new .308 Ruger Scout Rifle with a finish like picrel.
Is the gun itself worth that price? Mechanically seems like basically a modernized Mauser in an easier to source and slightly cheaper caliber so I could afford to shoot it more than my actual surplus Mauser.
My plan is to throw a cheaper LPVO like the new Primary Arms 1-6x Nova Gen 4 and a Magpul RLS sling I have lying around on there and use it for general innawoods stuff.
Is this idea rarted? Is the Ruger Scout Rifle rarted? Is the whole Scout Rifle/brush gun concept rarted?
