Have seen a few folks on here with pre64 lighter weight rifles. Can I ask what stocks you've used, and resulting weights, with/without optics if known.

I've a Pre64 FWT being rebarreled with a 24" Krieger #1 @ Long Rifles Inc, and am now looking at stock options. Would really like Brown Pound'r (8 months out), also considering MCM Edge.

Got a 308 Winchester featherweight. Slapped a 14 oz scope on with Talley rings.

Ordered and installed a McMillan featherweight stock with the edge fill.

Rifle weighs 8 lbs fully loaded, scopes and slung. It feels perfect and has just enough weight to make offhand shots easier.

If you wanna shave even more weight then you could order the stock to be made for a blind mag.

Or just buy a Kimber Montana and hope it shoots right.

Out of curiousity how long has LRI had your m70? They’ve had mine for almost a month with no updates on their system beyond it being checked in.
