Yup. Mid 80's 308, made in Japan. With a 3-7x optic it's a nearly perfect hunting rifle for North America with a bit more class than a tupperware bolt action. The magazines are expensive, but other than having a spare there's not really any need for more. The pencil barrel profile heats up quickly and accuracy drops after 3 or 4 rounds.
Acchh. I get sweaty palms if I don't have 4-6 magazines for any firearm that needs them. My favorite .45, an HK pistol, only has three mags, and I have to keep it really far back in the safe, so I don't shoot it too much.
Hmm, didn't know that about the barrel. The Mini-14 disease. Thanx.
