CVA Optima V2 or Optima V2 nitride. They start around $260 in SS or about $340 in nitride over SS. A little less if you wait for a sale.

Not too heavy...under 7lbs or too long.
Scope mount included too

If you want something even lighter with a few more bells and whistles the CVA Accura Mountain Rifle. Base model is around $400 but ive seen them on sale for about $350
Nicer stock
About a half pound lighter and an inch shorter
Adjustable trigger

CVA Wolf. Light, accurate, inline, easy to clean. I prefer it over some others because it has a hammer not a bolt.

My choice as well. Have one for my daughter, and then I got one for myself even. SS barrel.

I know you are probably looking for something a little more modern but this is a traditional just to show that it can be done...
I built it off a Pecatonica precarve youth rifle stock.
