FX-05 Xiuhcoatl 2

FYI the word Xiuhcoatl literally translates into Turquoise Serpent but is actual a metaphorical term for Fire Serpent. It is really a very fine weapon and is an amazing accomplishment of the Mexican Military. It has been in service since 2006.

In spite of cost saving measures for their original design, (our friend Gary who is shooting in competition against my little brother with one of these very fine rifle,) they are very expensive! lol!

Hoping you have a wonderful birthday when it comes in the mail! lol!

Who alway try to love and trust everybody. Sometime it get ryo in trouble, but would rather that than give up personal value. Ryo have been hurt by people that self once trusted, but still, personal value more important than personal hurt neh.

ryo not like the boy who own it, but was nice to see him drop from first place down to third in competition against my little brother and our friend gary using using the black diamond rifle yesterday. Th FX-05 seem very well balance and shoot very very far for rifle of this caliber with good accuracy.

As for your second question, the FX-05 is more expensive than Mexican Army intended, but not know if this is answer to question or not.

Your friend,
