Thanks all for the compliments! As far as weight, it is listed by Chambers as 8.5 lbs. in .58 cal. I'll let you know once I receive it. One thing that concerns me that John mentioned after he sighted it in today is that it has no cast off and the comb is very high. A few years ago I bought a used T/C Renegade and that stock would not work for me at all. The comb was so high that I couldn't get my eye down to look through the sights, or just barely. I never had that problem with T/C Hawken rifles, though, and those line up well. I ended up selling the Renegade as I was not even going to attempt to shoot it. Everyone is a bit different, so hopefully this one will fit me.
