Lightweight Gear Delivers Major Advantages for Mountain Hunters
Planning a mountain hunt? Weight is a major factor on mountain hunts and whittling away every possible ounce translates into more strength and mobility on the mountain. The rifle is the one area where hunters are traditionally willing to allow for more weight. In part, the extra weight allowance is attributed to the lack of high quality, lightweight firearm options previously available in the market.
2A Armament is making major breakthroughs with extraordinarily lightweight, durable and accurate hunting rifles. Ultralight options are available for every piece of gear imaginable. Your backpack, sleeping system and layered clothing are all measured in ounces. Your rifle shouldn’t break that trend by adding 15-pounds to your shoulder. Hunters with a lightweight pack and rifle have a major advantage when scrambling on rocks and hiking through steep inclines.
The 2A Armament XLR-20 AR10 6.5mm Creedmoor in Kuiu Camo is a great example of the perfect mountain rifle. It weighs about the same as many 4-season backpacking tents at an incredibly light 6.88 pounds. The overall weight reduction helps balance your pack and body on uneven terrain. It eliminates the wear on your shoulder from lugging around the dead weight of a heavy rifle and does not sacrifice ounces for quality or performance. Based on rigorous military and tactical field requirements, the rifle is made to perform at the highest level, in the harshest conditions.
If you are hitting the backcountry for elk and deer for days at a time, hogs and coyotes in Texas or simply tackling the most vertical slopes to escape other hunters, a lightweight rifle gives you a major advantage.
