Huh keep us up to date on this I would like to see which one wins out. I am sure that the boys in the field would like either one as I think both have a lot of good to offer.
Will do - I will continue to pass along as much good intel as comes through the shop.
We do get lucky in that we have some folks who like to "show off" some new stuff before it hits the market, so anything I can get my hands on and play with, I usually do.
This new rifle platform is a real departure from what the basic service rifle has been since it's inception. With this modular platform you can tailor to mission specific needs.
That said, I can't see the military going $5K plus per unit on Sniper Rifles. I can see them spending $2500, but double that per piece is stretching the limit. This submission is one hell of a good match though, that Surgeon Action is T*TS in my book and would be great for the HOGs out there.
I personally think Remington still has the inside track, but we will see what happens.
More to follow as it becomes available...
