    For small bore hunting rifles, the weight is capped at 8.5 lbs.
    The barrel has to be tapered, not a bull barrel. Not exceeding 26". No muzzle accessories. Stock cannot be a thumbhole type or special ergonomic stock. Trigger weight must be 2 lb. or greater. Scope can be any power of magnification but there cannot be more than one and a half inches of space between the bottom edge of the scope body in the gun's receiver.

    I have a Ruger 10/22 that almost fits that definition, but the stock is a Fajen Legacy, which counts as a thumbhole. I may see if I can put it in a Hogue overmolded stock.
