A practical, and shared caliber rifle in the GSR model. Now that bolt gun would be fun (and economical) to shoot.
Yeah, my take on the "scout rifle" is an SKS with a rear mounted see-under scope and tech sights... I'm sure that would send groupthinking gun forum automatons into a frenzy! :lol:I may be splitting hairs here, but the whole scout concept kind of debunks the smaller 5.56 round vs the 308.

That said....I have a 10/22 scout rifle :lol:
^^^ +1still gotta say i love my gunsite scout. It is my favorite rifle. It is lite and handles well. I am not a preacher of the scout concept i just like the look and feel of the rifle. Some will argue that it is not a true scout for this reason or that reason. I really dont care i just love it for what it is even if they called it the zombie apocalypse tin can slayer jack rabbit elephant gun.
.223/5.56 gun scout that would take mini mags.. that would be a hell of an idea to chase mossbergs mvp withI would also like to see one in 7.62x39 that is capable of digesting steel cased, in a synthetic stock to cut down on costs. Make it so they take mini-14 and mini-30 mags, respectively.
They could also do away with the "ruger rings" in favor of an industry standard like weaver mounts, and updating the rear sight to something that adjusts with clicks.
You know, same old complaints from the mini-14.
Ruger did make a .308 mini but it was discontinued shortly after production.i have the scout rifle and it is awesome. i have an fal also to complete my bolt/auto combo in 308 and a savage axis in 223 to go along with my mini for my 223 bolt/auto combo. so i guess ruger need to make a mini in 308 and a scout in 223 to make me happy.
the axis is a great bang for the buck. 300 with a scope and it shoots sub moa with my hand loads. i can put 4 rounds in a penny at 100 yards.
the rifle you are refering to is called the XGI. they produced some and it appeared in a catalog but none were sold. they had issues with receivers cracking due to the power of the 308 round. someone posted at the last shot show that there was one behind the scenes at the ruger booth that was being give to some one as a gift. (2nd hand info dont hold me to it)Ruger did make a .308 mini but it was discontinued shortly after production.
