Anybody have any experience with these rifles good or bad. I see they chamber for the 416 Rigby Remington and Ruger.
I just placed an order for an MRC X2 in 270 win in leftie. Will report back in 6-10 weeks. Haha
I agree the sights are not close to what should be on a DG rifle. They are functional at best but are quite ugly, and I am hoping not to need them with a nightforce NXS on the 505 and a VX-6 on the 416 RM. I would gladly pay more for a quarter rib with some folding leafs though for sure. And a barrel band! I really have no plans for either of the rifles to see DG use so I'm not running out to get the work done but I damn sure would have ordered them so configured had the option been available.If you get one in a heavy, go with the Seven Continents Rifle. It has a synthetic stock and should therefore hold up better to heavy recoil.
All in all, they seem to be decent rifles, comparable to others at the same price point. The only thing I cannot get over is how they put such a crappy set of sights on their heavy rifles. It matters to me because all I shoot is open sights (so, if I bought one, that'd be the first thing I would change...along with trimming the barrel were it a SCR, and adding a band for the front sling swivel).
Using my MRC (Colorado Buck edition) in 375 H&H currently on my trip with PawPrints. Outstanding accuracy! Only complaint is it might could use a stronger magazine spring. Or maybe I need to learn how to load it to make certain the cartridges are pushed upward.
It wasn't an issue with loading my second shot on the Cape buffalo I just too a couple of days ago.
Best of luck on your decision!
