    Yeh I make selections to get rifle to 2.7kgs then throw it away by adding 300grams of cover seems backwards.

    Just brought a bushbuck one, mainly after the thread on carbon stocks breaking after minor damage...... wont be used often but there are certain trips it will help.

    Seems to fit on the tikka with scope and brake no issues, yet to try carrying it with it on but like the idea of having it on my pack with out screaming firearm

    I have one that is used if taking a track to hike in before hunting or out after, and if camping in i'll cover it at night.
