I am really interested in a single shot rifle but was slightly disappointed when I got my hands on a Ruger no1
it weighed a ton!
just looked it up...
8.5 lbs for the varmint edition (which this was)
7.25 lbs for even the "light sporter"!
thats without scope or anything like a sling/studs etc
It is not a design area I know well but....
surely removing bolts and large actions should reduce weight considerably.
the Browning Low Wall looks light at 6.5 lbs
what else is there?
