Use to seeing this with bolt action rifle's instead of the Barrett's. Have to be an Amry patch, because the Corp does not include the Barrett as a sniper rifle.
leave it to a Jar Head. LOL just kiddin. I actually touched this up a bit. I was wandering if anyone would notice. I thought it was cool, sumthin differn't
do the same logo with the savage arms 110 series rifles and it would be my next tattoo!
Was the Corps using Remingtons when Gunny Hathcock set the standard?
is the rifle Carlos used with an Unertil scope.He had a scope mount made up for the Browning M-2 .50 cal.which he also used.He also helped design the M-40 sniper rifle for the Marine Corps.The M-40A1 is a Remington 700 in 7.62x51(308).
you would be better off to ask somebody like reaper308 or fordvg. one of them will know for sure.
The hunting of man...
this is solid evidence the luckybychoice is right on the money in his Winchester mod 70 comment.
Hathcock generally used the standard sniper rifle: The Winchester Model 70 .30-06 caliber rifle with the standard Unertl scope. On some occasions, however, he used a different weapon: the .50-caliber M2 Browning Machine Gun, on which he mounted the Unertl scope, using a bracket of his own design. This weapon was accurate to 2500 yards when fired one round at a time. At one point, he took careful aim at a courier carrying a load of assault rifles and ammunition on a bicycle. He had second thoughts when he saw a 12-year-old boy in his sights, but after considering the intended use of those weapons, he decided to disable the bicycle, hitting the bike frame. The boy tumbled over the handlebars, grabbed a gun, and immediately began firing back, so Hathcock returned fire, killing him
i don't know if you have already but carlos Hatchcocks autobiography should be reguired reading for you my friend,there are some great accounts of what can be done with a sniper rifle in the hands of a Marine
Carlos tho,i got to see him once and it was very cool.
Did you get to meet him or just watch him shoot? Either way it would have been a great thing to see/do. I read a article about his son and I guess he's a kick ass marksman as well.
at San Onofre range in Camp Pendleton,i had shot 2nd award expert and got sent to San Onofre T.A.D. to coach,he was swarmed but very good motivating speaker
My consin Randy was a Marine sniper himself back in 1978 to 1981 and met Carlos after he graduate from sniper school at Camp LeJeune.
Must have been a honor.
