So, I've lusted after the Scout Rifle that Cooper promulgated. I need a bolt action rifle. And Ruger came up with a version, reviewed in American Rifleman.
I learn through the magazine that they considered M14 magazines, but rejected them for various reasons related to feeding. Point against them. To sell me a rifle they should have tried harder to get that feature working. I would have found that nigh irresistable.
One other great big lack... No mention is made about Lefty versions. Sorry Ruger. My gun budget money stays in my wallet.
And now I've held it in my hands at the NRA Convention. Found out the why's for no M14 mags. The variation between them and between manufacturers is too great and plays heck with the bolt action for some reason. But there is a Lefty version planed.
I'd say it's psychosomatic, but that's all in my head. - I don't know how medical personnel do it. After taking care of a sick roomie for a day or two, every physical sensation I get is filtered through the light...
