The gun weights alot and only moves forward and backward like on a rail, very accurate at long range.

Whoa

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?

The gun and scope

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.

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.
