Thread: Recommendations for a lightweight 223

    Recommendations for a lightweight 223

    Anyone have anything to recommend? Not using any Mauser derivative please - especially no CZ's.

    how lightweight do you want ? i know an RFD thats got a carbon wrapped barrel .223 in a very light stock the setup is silly light

    Tikka T3 looks pretty good. Not shot one in .223 but have in .243 and it is very light and easy to use.

    Tikka action is likely to be a little on the heavy side, I'd like 24" of barrel and 'silly light'!

    Silly light is easy, Kimber Montana.
    But as you said no Mauser actions you'll just have to buy something heavier

    Do they make a lightweight action or is it only a bolt face swap?
    Blaaaaaser would not be much higher than a Mauser action on my list!

    By Mauser, do you mean bolt actions? I have two T-3 Lites in .223's (a 1-8 and a 1-10) and they are plenty light enough, but my lightest is a Kel Tec SU-16C auto loader. Only comes with an 18" barrel though, and I believe there would be some legal issues with you owning one. Very accurate though, considering it's weight. ~Muir

    A thought: a Single shot? The good ones aren't that much lighter (If any) than the bolt guns.
