I have a buddy who will be traveling overseas instead of hunting this year and isn't really that interested in it anyways. We got him a Remington semi-auto .308 at a gun show and it shoots pretty good. I'll try to contact him and get back to you.
Location: From Grand Junction CO, stationed in Germany
I ended up getting a rifle for him yesterday. We picked up a weatherby vanguard .308 in the youth model. Topped it with a Nikon pro staff 3x9 glass. More money than I was planning on spending but that’s ok because I will be able to put the adult model stock on it as he grows up.
