Dude - Don't kill a nitch market for us here in the PNW... LOL

We sell "S" word rifles all the time, we just don't market them on the internetz for all the Lefties to point their fingers at...

The "S" word is thrown about on all sorts of "kit" ( Oh yes, you know I went there ) for build requests coming through the door.

Discretion is the key - not ADVERTISING it in the Left's face...

Ineffable

Let me give you an example of what a 4" target at 660 yards looks like-- with a 25X spotting scope--


Target is small huh-- that's with a 25X scope--- at 660 yards-- what would it look like with a 3x--- you wouldn't see it-- not at 660 yards, not at 500 yards, not at 300 yards.

Just to get you thinking in the right direction-- and to dispel any dreams a granger and Hollywood movies. Not everyone can just pick up a rifle and shoot out that far. So take it serious and we'll get you pointed in the right direction.

PS KEEP THE SIG!

Although my SB scope was a tad more than 2K.

I've got a A5 stock on order for this rifle:

been on order for 5 months now

And a BIG +1 on building a long range precision rifle---- NOT a SNIPER rifle.

Ineffable-- I was just poking at you-- I'm sorry if I offended you-- it was not my intention. I just feel strongly against the whole hunting bad guys at 500 yards coming from a non LEO (which they wouldn't normally try anyways) or military personnel.
I am former LEO if that makes any difference (which it shouldn't) Nice weapons...want to trade?

Sorry my bad-- go rent Shooter and run to your favorite Smith and tell him you want a bolt action Barrett M82 rifle just like the one Marky Mark used in the movie!

Am I the only one that notices that stuff?

*literally laughing out loud*

That scene is classic. Why is he racking that bolt each time? LOL You know, they did so well with the mil dot usage too - and got that so far off...

I may have been the only one in the whole theater pointing out the fact that "paper patching" from a .50 caliber Barrett isn't going to match a direct bore fired, proprietary Chey Tac .416...LOL

Ah, that was funny. I need that this evening. Thanks JP

Sure that makes a difference-- thank you for serving.
Thank you for your kind words. As for your offer:
I'll give you a set of Badger scope rings, 20 MOA base, and a HS PRECISION "tactical" stock for your SIG. Now that is a fair trade. Literally

If the Scope Base is Badger Ord also, and the rings aren't some whacked out size, that's not a bad deal Ineff... depending on the condition and model of the HS Precision of course. If it's in two pieces, then I would shy away... LOL

Then you only need an action, a barrel and a scope to get into the realm you are talking about. All quality stuff there...

I'm thinking a piecemeal kit starting with the rings is not in my best interest. Hey, I got an idea...I think I saw in a movie once where bad guys get free stuff just for point THEIR guns at people. Can I just do that?

Pointing guns at people with guns--- yea I think you can do that---- one time. But don't make any plans after that.

The Rings are 30mm Badger low mount
The Base is Badger 20moa for a Remington short action
The HS is bedded-- and has a 4lbs "sniper" fill in the buttstock.
It has maybe 200 rounds through it.

But alas-- I have a action that I can put on it and a R5m barrel-- humm I think I'll have to reneg on that offer and built me another stick.
