    Lost River, that is a very nice rifle and some beautiful photos. Congratulations on your elk, may it not be your last.

    I am envious of you, sir. Thanks for posting the photos, it gives something to aspire to.

    I have a Tikka Big Boar in 308. They do not import them anymore. I love the way it moves and feels in the hand. I have to look and see if I have some pictures.

    Here's a picture of a stock photo of one:

    I played around with a Winchester 94 "scout" a few years ago, but don't have any pictures.
    At the time Burris made a mount and rings that mounted in front of the reciever by replacing the rear sight with a treaded base and drill / tapping the barrel band for the front base attachment point. Of course this took away the BUIS option unless you mounted Lyman or other peep sight on the receiver.
    If I remember correctly I got the idea from when Ted Yost was at Gunsight and was building a "tactical" lever gun during the bad ole AWB period. I always wanted to ask him what he did to make the loading gate smoother / faster to allow speed loading on the go, which was a part of what was advertised in the tactical lever gun package, besides the Burris forward mount and a Galco butt cuff and a Ching sling.
    Anyway, sold the 94 for some other project but kept the Burris mount / rings just in case I ever want to try it again.

    Light carbine with low power scope is a good general start.
    Purists do get a little carried away sometimes.

    There are a few basic characteristics that define a scout. Purist forget that they aren't as rigid as you would think.

    Here is the key characteristics http://www.steyrscout.org/project.htm

    And as mentioned above, the forward mounted scope is NOT required to be a "scout".

    It is my impression that Cooper felt over all weight, length, accuracy potential, and caliber was much more important to the concept of what made a rifle a "scout" verse just being another rifle.

    According to Cooper, there are some good reasons to go with a low powered, forward mounted scope. his arguments for such a setup are worth of consideration.

    While the forward mounted scope is an encouraged characteristic/feature, it's not defining one. simply having a forward mounted scope does not make a rifle a scout any more than not having one mean you don't have a scout.

    This is my Ruger GSR. No optic as of yet because I have been a bit strapped for cash. I threw on a spare BFG Vickers sling which works great in this application, and a Battle Comp BBAC. I hope to get a Burris or Leupold scout scope fairly soon, along with a ching sling to round out the package. I love this rifle, very light, short and handy. It is my only bolt gun and really is an "all purpose" gun.

    Thanks! Whats nice is that I can swap the stock back to the original (in 30 seconds) so I have a gun I can lend out to kids or women who can't deal with an adult LOP.
