I have heard of the carbon fiber or graphite barrels, haven't seen one or played with one.
I will agree that plastic stocks have a lot of advantages, and I have a few. But when it comes to frames, receivers or barrels, I draw
the line. My guns are made out of real steel.
That would give you the taper free barrel needed to accept the rail and scope without the bull barrel weight
bull barrel weight on a 22?? Cowboy up son............
I just checked, you may be right. My bathroom scale says my heavy barreled 77/22 weighs 6.5 lbs, with sling, scope, and loaded
Maybe I better check the scale in the shop.
Hard to believe I have been lugging around that much iron at my age
Heck, my 1911 weighs less than half that !
