Butler Creek vs Choate Folding for Mini

Trying to decide on one ......and realised, they may be substatially different in weight.

I emailed both, and, of course, next day, got Choates reply (as CMT is NOT part of a multi faceted conglomerat)

Choate, from the factory, no ruger metal on it, is 2 lb, 4oz.


Can anyone that has one tell me the exact weight of a BC folder, preferably stainless, without stock reinforcement, or the forend liner?

Any help would be appreciatted, thanks !!!

wxl; excellent info. Thanks for sharing. I have the SS Butler Creek folder on my Mini 30. It fits great, locks up tight in both positions and is comfortable to shoot. I can only speak for this one, but I'm very pleased with it.

The stainless B.C. weighs 2 5/8 lbs. on my postal scale. A factory wood stock weighs 2 lbs even.

Thanks !!!

Exactly what I was looking for !!!

So 2.25, vs 2.625, or 6 ounces heavier, if my conversion is correct.

Oh, just to be sure 40nascar ....those numbers ARE naked, without the interior reinforcement or barrel channel liner, right?

Both stripped, or both with the metal?
