I have the RA Compact in 7mm-08.
I reworked the trigger (replaced the trigger spring with a spring from a Bic pen, hey it works). Trigger is now a very sweet 2 lbs.
I used Bondo Fiberglas Resin and two 1-24 threaded rods to stiffen the forend. This also added weight, but not too much. I then added the resin to the butstock area, but I used too much there and now the rifle is a little heavier than I wanted.
All, it's a very handy and compact rifle, just like my son's Rem M-7 also in 7mm-08.
I've killed five does with this RA and all except one were one shot kills.
I also have a RA Predator in .223 with the 22" barrel. currently, I've got a free china-made 3-9x40 scope on it and it's accuracy is only ok. I've also added the resin to the forend and butstock but not too much unlike last time. It doesn't shoot as well as I'd like yet but it could be the chnia-made scope.
If I was you, I'd get one and go kill hogs with it!
