I am in the market for a new ultralightish mountain rifle. I have an NXS 2.5-10x42 on order for it. I have had really good experience with Christensen and have kind of narrowed it down to these two rifles, but I am open to others. Want the bare rifle to be sub 6lbs and want a shorter barrel - 16"-20" without brake would be ideal, but can go up to 22". Needs to be threaded for brake or suppressor. Anybody have any experience with the Ridgeline Ti or FFT? I see that they are coming out with a Ti FFT, just not sure I want to spend more than $2300 on the rifle. The FFT's floor plate seems a little weird to me, but maybe its not a big deal. I appreciate anybody's input who has experience with either of these rifles, or if I should be considering something else in the same price point with the features I am looking for. Or maybe a regular ridgeline will work fine for what I am looking for and I don't need the Ti or the FFT? I wish CA listed the actually weights for specific guns and not just "starting at 5.8lbs".
