Here she is Bronco ....bit more shiny stuff than the NE but still a good looking gun.
She has a 28" barrel with 1:66 twist and weighs in at 7.5 lbs.

NICE! Sleek lines. It will be interesting to see how it shoots It appears to have a straight trigger, what is the pull on the trigger? Keep the info posted.

Say spit,
Why don't you carve out a patch box for it. You can order it from TOW. That will give you a little project during the rainy season.  Looks like a hawken without the box..........Nice rifle.

Ray.......... t up

Ray I don't particularly care for patch boxes on my rifles , like the simple lines of this one . Just need to get the shine off the brass.

Man, if you want the shine off of something, I'm your man. Be it gun, truck, eyeglasses, whatever; I can easily take the shine off anything with almost no effort .. no additional charges for scratches either.

Is it light? My Renegade is almost 8 1/2lbs with a 2" shorter barrel, and a larger caliber than yours.

You have to be nudging up close to 9lbs.
