Mine weighs 5lbs 12oz. It’s a stainless fluted bolt model though. Hopefully that helps.


That makes sense. 5.12 + 12.6 in scope and 4 on talleys. Puts it just over 6.12


Check your math, 5lb 12 oz is actually 5.75lbs. Total weight would be closer to 6 3/4 lbs. Still a nice light rifle.

My math works out to 6.75 lbs. Nice rifle no matter how you weigh it.

6lbs 12oz is 6 3/4 lbs, no? Last time I checked my math it was anyway. Rough crowd on here!


Oh, and believe it or not, deer bite. Fairly hard.

Yeah he makes a sweet rig after he rebarreles, rebeds and repaints. I have multiple “poor man’s” NULAs.

I've owned a couple of "poor man" NULAS that I liked better than the real ones. One started life as a 270 that I had Melvin convert to a 7x57. I still regret selling that one!
