Pancho, the overall length is 36 inches, nice and handy for a truck or in a blind. I do a lot of coyote hunting and it's very maneuverable in small spaces, where I don't want to show a lot of movement. It will do close to MOA at one hundred yards, and probably most effective out to 200 yards or so.. I don't see that well beyond that so it's perfect for me. Ballistically its about the same as the old 30-30 round, which has killed a lot of game. It weighs about 5.9 pounds without a scope. I really like the rifle and the round.Congrats on the new rifle. Chicked out the website. Looks real handy and short. What is the actual lengt? Also, what is the caliber of your gun? Noticed there were some in 5.56, .223,450 Bushmaster, 300 B.O. & 7.62X39., so I assume it is a shorter action. Looks real easy to get into & outta vehicles.
I have the older style rifles in walnut & blue. They are nice, but hat to drag them around the old rancho. So I have a couple of poly stocked guns that are full size. Have been looking at a 700 Remmy youth model in .243 for some time. It is a good bit shorter on both ends than my other 700s. Just never got round to getting one.
Too bad they don't make it in .243, That would probably require a slightly longer action. then you could stuff .308, 6.5, 7-08 etc. in it.
Gonna do a range report on that one?
No....they don't.The American Ranch rifle takes all Mini-30 magazines.
True, but then this thread was started concerning the 7.62x39mm version of the RARR.No....they don't.
Depends on the model. Only the 7.62x39 takes mini 30 mags. The 450 Bushmaster takes a single stack, the 5.56 and 300 Blackout takes either a rotary or an AR mag, depending on model number.
Guess they won't be making one that will take the AK mags. I got lots of those. Even got a 75 round drum. Yeah right!!!!
Well, I do have an AR in .300 Blackout. Just haven't shot it much cause of the cost of the ammo. Don't reload for that one.......yet. And I don't have a bolt gun in that cal.
I do have a bolt gun in 5.56 to go with my ARs. Works better than I thought it would. A Savage Axis I got off a buddy for 2 bills. He bought a Mossberg Predator IIRC. It took an AR mag.The Axis is cheap at Wally World for 269. I had not bought one cause I did not expect much. The guy had put a betterr scope on it than the one that came with the package. It was right at an inch MOA. However, it is a full size cal gun with a mag blocked for .223. It fed perfectly well, but is limited to 5 rounds.
Pancho, you will like the American rifles. Mine are either the Predator or the Ranch models. I like the flush fit of the rotary magazines but not the rotary mags themselves. The 450 Bushmaster mag is not rotary, but a single stack. It works better than the roatary ones. Works well with the 308, and I imagine it will work just as well with any of the 308 sized cartridges. Personally I would only be interested in the American rifles that take the AR/AI/Mini14 mags. Wish they were available when I bought mine.Muy bueno compadre. Ain't no gunshows down hee till the second week of August. I will be there all weekend swapping a few. Maybe I can find a few of the RARRs to look at.
