Re: Vortex Scopes?....

Just remember to read and follow the torque instructions attached to the scope. It's real easy to over torque and damage the scope when mounting.

The tag on mine said 18 in/pds.

Re: Lightest trigger pull on a DA revolver...?

Buy a used S&W revolver and send it in to the factory for the Master Revolver Action Package. It's well worth the $150 I spent several years ago.

It's $165 now. https://www.smith-wesson.com/customer-s ... unsmithing

My point is the lever action platform is still very viable and perhaps could even be considered ideal in certain locations due to laws inhibiting semi auto ownership.
