Keeping the Ruger SFAR Lightweight

Over the summer we’ve been experimenting with fixed-power optics, sometimes combined with a magnifier, sometimes with a 1X red dot. Our test bed has been the Ruger SFAR .308, this week fitted with a brand new Lucid P8 4X and a Lucid Litl Mo 1X red dot. Also, more from the Ballistics Summit at Whittington and a new advertiser with an eye on safety.

Two Great .22 Choices!
