Come clean for us. We know it's a 270 Win, what is the action type(probibly bolt), what is the Manufacturer, what model, and what is the barrel length now. I also like short rifles that have some mass to them.
It is a Rossi Wizard with a 23" barrel. The over-all is only 38.5" though. The break action makes it short. The recoil pad helps tame down the felt kick as well. It is the same idea as the TC Encore, but with the more traditional break design.
