Whats intended goal for the new rifle? That is how I would determine what type of device I'd put on the end.
A compact easy handling rifle for night-time pig hunting would be the main purpose. My 30/30 is an heirloom I don;t want to get into the wet or mud. .270 is nice but I am not getting a very quick second shot for another pig with it. I have a 20" A3 style AR that is a bit big and want a more powerful bullet.
I want accuracy and I would like to place the rifle muzzle down in the truck without worrying about getting the crown damaged or a piece of mud getting down in barrel.
I want something functional without looking over the top "tactical"
