That was the reason i sold the MXB400. My MXBCharge & MXB320 were smaller n lighter. They had better handling n balance. That is the pro's n con's. I live in a 5 window skoolie, i have very little room my Mrs. has most of it for her junk. Downsizing is very tough on an older hunter & fisherman. She does not care a whit about it, so it does not count. Have sold all my rifles but one, she said either it went or the ML's. So i am working on a new home for it.
