Please let me know what you have. Should have bought one of those beat up 601 RT's when I had the chance! Thanks,

Casey

I have a decked out Steyr FT gun for trading and also a big Nikko 10-50x60 scope.

Yes, I own one. They are characterized as "extremely rare" and often the rifle/scope combination and fine tuning of the stock are custom made to the original owner. Mine has a Leupold M8 scope fitted with a Premier booster with a custom reticule in both: the Leupold has one single vertical line with a dot in the center; this is zeroed in with Leupold's own adjustments. The Premier unit has vertical lines with dots as well, these can be adjusted up/down and left/right from four towers in the Premier unit, which also boosts the magnification from 4X to 8X

The shooter preferences are a significant factor: in this case the scope is intalled very high even though the shortet loading hatch of the RT version would allow for much lower installation. Also, the Premier unit is installed significantly tilted to the right, but the stock is setup so that when you lift the rifle into shooting position, it sets equally tilted to the left, thus the reticule is perfectly straight when shooting.

These kinds of peculiarities make these (and other rifles that have actually been used in serious competitions) so fascinating. :) I knew literally nothing about this rifle when I bought it, other than that it's an FWB. Now I know all that and also a great deal about Leupold/Premier relationhip, which is quite interesting in itself.
