That would be awesome with the barrel cut down, a Krinkov flash suppressor, and a kick ass scope.

A scope on that thing would be about as effective as one on a Musket.

It's truly amazing the diversity of the favorites in here...

It seems to me that what tickles peoples fancies are what they are emotionally attached to.

One of these looks nice!


And I like the gun too!

I also Like these:



And another one of my favs, a tactical shotgun...

Yep they aren't cheap. I've only shot a standard K31 once but really like the straight pull action. It's too bad there aren't that many modern straight pull bolt actions out there.

Money no object I'd prefer something along the lines of an AICS in 338 lapua with the Anschutz match 54 bolt action or similar that takes a 20 round mag.

Nicest I've shot in a long time, Sig P226 .40, all stainless (body and slide). It's a little heavier than the standard P226, and just feels so good in your hand. I was shooting tighter groups with it from the start than anything else I've shot before. Sweet.

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on one of these.

I've heard that accuracy is a non issue.



We'll see.
