    .308Win; 18", 21" or 26" Lothar-Walther-bullbarrel; optional flashhider or compensator; 10 or 20 round H&K G3-magazines;

    For the discriminating shooter! Available from 9/14/04! :cool:

    Rejoice Rebs and Yanks, the future looks bright! ;) :) :evil:

    Great, just what the market needs, another Stoner/AR-based rifle. It looks great, but I'm a bit bored with the AR-style platform myself.

    That looks so big and so heavy and so unwieldy and yet so COOL!!!!
    I want one!!

    Looks way cool and hyper deadly, but it is German. This means that it will cost at least 3 times what it could be produced for here. When working (some 1.3% of the time) it will perform better than any similar rifle in the world, but it will have many more parts than needed and be either in, on the way to or on the way back from the factory. It will only be repairable by some guy named Dieter, who's on vacation about 10 weeks per year, only works about 14 hours/week the rest of the time, charges $185/hour to do so, and who has a 3 1/2 year backlog. Oh, and he's 1 year from retirement.

    Nah, I'll buy American and keep the money home (and much more in my pocket).

    @ KestryII: No problem! Just shell out 3.150 bucks and it's YOURS! Without the flashhider you pay only 3 grand. :)

    @Sam Adams: Yes I know..........old stereotypes and prejudices die hard. :D

    AWB and import restrictions are 2 different things.

    Yep. Most people don't know about all the stupid import laws.

    I love how people think because some piece of machinery is German, it must be better and will be willing to pay double or triple the price of a comparable American firearm. Last time I checked, the U.S. still ruled!

    Not a jab at any posters, just an opinion.

    Well......:scrutiny: from the number of rails, you'd never run out of room to hang stuff off it.:rolleyes:

    the rails aren't so you can hang a lot of crap on the rifle, they're so you can hang the crap where you want it.

    *psst* The bipod is on backwards in the first pic. :)

    *psst* no its not. A lot of people mount the bipod that way so it folds forward, if you had to shoulder the rifle, your hand would be grabbing a bipod instead of forearm if it folded backwards.

    Interesting...but I have to agree with the naysayers. Bushmaster makes a .308 now...that uses Fal mags (@ $10 buck a pop) for a suddenly more appealing $1500.

    That looks ugly and heavy and plastic and ultra-tactical and everything I don't usually like in a rifle, but I STILL WANT ONE!!!

    My mistake, I only glanced at the pic for a second and thought something was wrong. :eek:

    No worries.

    Never ever buy a weapon made/designed in a country that has not won a war since before your great grandfather was born.

    I remember when the Eifel Vista IPSC club used to give away HK hatpins to thos who had reps as "Hostage K illers". Best thing that was ever done with one.
