    Given the ease of mounting and available lightweight BUIS sets, I would install some too if I were using the gun for defense against a multiple angry bear attack.

    I've not peeked through the Swaro 1-6 before. Vision being the subjective and personal thing it is, do you find the T2 noticeably better for you than the Swaro on 1x?

    The appeal is lighter weight.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I got the impression GJM was talking about the micro as a backup instead of irons.

    I spent half a day in a class with a T-1 and switched rifles in the afternoon to a Z6i 1-6. The Swarovski felt like cheating! It was like poking through a huge window and my times were faster even though the optic and rifle were heavier. The FOV on them is insane.
    Unless you have a large, tubular optic on your pistol, front slide serrations are dumb and cosmetic. It pains me to see armed professionals get so excited over them.

    I had the distinct honor to know Finn, and at a Jeff Cooper Whittington reunion, break two successive thrown clay pigeons with Finn’s Mauser .30-06 rifle. Probably couldn’t repeat it no matter how hard I tried.
    The Mauser 30-06 you mention may be the one he described in "A Professional Rifle." My favorite thing about it is that it was cheap--you could probably build an exact replica for under $1k even today. He updated the build sheet to accept stainless the Model 70 in "A Professional's Rifle Revisited," and the 30-06 Model 70 that I've posted about here several times is built to that specific pattern.

    His rifle I shot had a Leupold 1.75-6, if there is a picture of it in his book.

    Actually, I plan BUIS like the Troy ones that solidly lock up, in case you get one of those weather days when it is raining or blizzarding.

    I believe that's the one. The scope was in Redfield rings and bases, with a quick-release lever and base that had a little peep sight built into it.

    Angled or traditional? I have the same ADM mount and Z6i and the traditional will fold under the glass.
