rifle

I would start with the Remington 700 platform. You could get a stock one and add a new bbl, stock, trigger, scope etc... as $$ allows, our you can buy one already pimped out from the factory. Its cheaper when you buy it already set up. I like the 700P. FN makes a nice rifle as well.

AWESOME gun. very light and the trigger is awesome, fully adjusable...he went to the remmington armorer school and they gave him a big discount. lucky guy, lol. his was some wierd green color though.

green 700P?

the 700P comes with a black HS Precision stock, unless he changed it already. Maybe it was a 700 VTR? Did it have a three-sided bbl, with a green plastic and rubber stock?

...or, if it has green speckling over the black stock, with a stainless action and bbl, its the mil-spec 5R.

three sided meaning...

The barrel has a triangle shape to it.
