    The price is way out on this one. There is no way that is worth well over $2K.
    1944 - 18 year old men stormed the beaches of Normandy into almost certain death.

    2018 - 18 year old boys need a safe space because words hurt their feelings.

    i ask because i have a Ruger Scouts and ill be getting one of the Ranger guns next year (so they tell us) just wondered how they compare, cause they sure look the same!
    They are night and day. I found the sights on the Tikka to be much better.

    Tikka Sights




    Ruger Scout sights

    That rifle on the wall of the laborer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there!

    well lets compare.
    to get a Ruger Scout in 308 right now your looking $1400 (todays price at WWS)
    and the Rangers gun comes with all the goodies, so a pelican like case, sling, soft case and trigger lock.
    if you source those out from WWS like i did with the Ruger your looking hard case $460, soft case $60, sling $50, trigger lock $25 (all estimates)
    total $1995.

    so roughly 2k to buy roughly the same kit off the shelf at WWS.
    Things either are what they appear to be;
    or they neither are, nor appear to be;
    or they are, and do not appear to be;
    or they are not, and yet appear to be.

    I believe the civilian version comes with nothing but a cardboard box. At $2500-2700 it is certainly expensive but after handling one in Edmonton recently I'm sure one will end up in my safe
