Long gun picture thread 2.0

#261

I’m a retired Vocational Teacher. I have been buying and trading guns many years. A lot of them were purchased before they got so expensive. back when you could buy a fully automatic Colt M-16 for 700 dollars and less.

Good cover story! I didn’t think, with the CIA still searching for you, that you were going to admit to being an international arms dealer…:joy:

Finally got through this whole thread. Really nice stuff you all have. :cool:

Got the itch to build my own long range rifle several years ago. Project started and parts got procured over a couple of years. All I can say is it was well worth the wait:

Base for the build is a Remington 700 SPS short action in 308 with 26” barrel. I’m really wanting a new scope with the Horus 3 reticle and may consider shortening the barrel. The best part of building your own rifle is the fun never ends. :slight_smile:

I went with .308. It’s a proven round & I figured the government already studied & paid for all the ballistic testing, not much unknown about it. Available just about everywhere, & its affordable. Topped with a Nikon Black 30mm mount, Nikon M TACTICAL 4-16×44mm BDC800 scope. UTG keymod mount bipod, Accu shot rear mono pod.

I know whose house I’m going to if the SHTF @Belt-Fed

All you guys have such nice rifles. All the threads showing off your revolvers, long guns, pistols are exciting to look at. However, I must say I feel inadequate. I don’t have any fancy guns or vintage items. My stuff is regular old guns you see at the local gun store. Nothing fancy or as pretty.

I am amazed at how many men out there turn professional photographer when it comes to photographing their firearms. Some nice photo work there guys.
