3 more pics following. What is this thing?
with a scope the Marine's used in Veitnam.
The gun weights alot and only moves forward and backward like on a rail, very accurate at long range.
this must be a international benchrest assoc. type rifle?reach over and pull the trigger kinda thing?we have benchrest at our club but i aint seen nothing like this yet
this rifle is to heavy for benchrest.
and what's with the 50 cal shells on the monopod? It looks to me just a custom made rifle with a HUGE stock... but what is that steel block under the scope for? definitely one of those "unique" guns I wonder about the range on it?
are obviously designed for benchrest, at least a home thing. The scope appears to be a unertl, which uses outside adjustments, which allows a wider range of elevation and windage changes. It is mounted on a block away from the action and probably recieves little or no vibration from recoil. I agree with fordvg, this is a purpose-built long range gun.
doesn't use factory loads for this
what caliber is this stick? Love the scope.
Yep, i like to hunt a little white tail sometimes, what range ya say, heck i dont know we put the spoting scope on em and soon as i can make out its a deer and not a cow, guess maybe mile and a half, sometimes bit futher.. yep, drop them critters like a bad transmission, course i got to talk sweet to your aunt martha or she wont drag em back for me..
They love weapons like this and I'll just bet you one of them knows exactly what it is. However it's not a "Rail" gun. It's a Slide Rail Mount Rifle. A Rail Gun is a powerful electrical device that fires plastic "pellets" by squeezing them out between two magnetic fields, in much the same kind of way a champagne cork pops out of a bottle, except of course, that the Rail Gun uses electricity instead of hydrostatic pressure. I know I've seen that wooden cheek piece somewhere before. That's what's got my curiosity up about this weapon. I'm sure this a standard issue sniper rifle of some known manufacturer. I just can't quite put my finger on it. I agree with samD and some of my fellow older people on here, the memory is what goes first.
