If you were to purhase a new Ruger Hawkeye in .257 Roberts, would it be the standard or ultra light? I noticed that Ruger has taken the ultra light our of there lineup on their web page. Wonder why? They quit making them?

So do the Ultra Lights always have the black on the end of the forearm?
I'll probably get the standard and leave it be.
I checked out a Remington Model 7's barrel & it is thicker than the Ruger's in the same .308 caliber. Before I sold my Ruger Ultralight I called Ruger and told them their barrel on this particular model 77 was simply too light for a caliber like a .308 & that it vibrated all over thhe place when fired. I've never owned a rifle with such a thin whimpy barrel as what was on their untralights. NO WONDER THEY DISCONTINUED IT!!
It seems the answer to my question has been satisfied. I'm getting the standard.
2 nd that
Now will that be wood or in the black ?:)
Wood. I don't think you can get it any other way.
