Our Assessment: This is a classy well-built high quality hunting rifle. The .308 has become perhaps the most versatile caliber now used. You can find factory rounds from 110 to 200 grains with and without lead cores. Kleinguenther made rifles in Seguin Texas from about 1973-1980. These rifles are considered top quality.
