    Our 308 prototype is off to the machine shop for the first round of revisions.

    Why did people hate on you so much Boxy? You did no one no harm!

    New Additions:

    Fully Integrated JP Enterprise (large profit) muzzle brake with matching "port-out" plates on the shroud.
    Reconfiguration of the picatinny rails so we can move to a CAA side mount bipod setup.
    Less Box More Octagon'ish
    Very slight cut down in the dimensions (about 1/2" over all, not much)

    You forgot to hire a tiny Japanese girl in skimpy clothes to hold that for the picture!

    A little bench rest application we've been working on. I posted about it a while ago.

    Although I always assumed it was pretty obvious, its a specific design for a specific application. Some people can't seem to wrap their head around the fact this is not a battlefield weapon nor do you use it like your 6lb carbine with a 16" barrel.

    it appears that its primary purpose is to make forum members ask "what is it?" so the owner can make snide comments back to them

    Not sure why you think anything I said is snide. But then again baseless attacks and knee-jerk reactions are pretty normal for the internet right?

    Good grief, lighten up. Can you clarify what made you think I was being snide?

    edit: Is teasing people about a yet to be finished item now taboo or something? Building anticipation or pulling peoples curiousity strings now off limits? Man I'm stumped. Help a guy out.

    Does the shroud do anything other than mount the bipod? I guess I don't quite get it... :confused:

    Be neat if you could add an integral laser range finder to it. But then again where this would be used the range would probably be known.
    Anyway, it needs something, some pizazz, ya know.

    Ian it houses a custom modular weights and recoil system. Though we are toying with some water cooling ideas as well.

    Dmitri - thats what revisions are for. :)

    Perhaps instead of Water cooled, a system of heat sinks and PC fans could be used.
    Would probably reduce weight, and overall complexity.

    Rent out ad space on the sides? Could help pay for ammo and range fees.

    How does it shoot?
    What do you use it for, mainly?
    How long is the bbl?
    Magazine capacity?
    What does it like to eat?
    Can you feed it after midnight?

    That is counter-productive to its application. Its suppose to weigh more. A lot more than usual. Its slowly approaching the weight of a Barret M107.

    That seemed to be the running joke when ARFCOM ripped me a new butt hole. That place is brutal. Photoshops of ol' boxy with ads on the side and all. haha

    I think one guy even put a cardboard box filled with weights (the kind you lift for exercise) ontop of his rifle and said he was going to compete in the market with me.

    Poor Boxy :(

    Awesome. I love it when I see someone come up with an idea and then use his hands and skills to make it take form.

    Lots of reduced felt recoil - I imagine once the muzzle brake is installed it will be approaching the goal of .22 recoil

    Its a bench rest application. With that kind of weight you can guess its not a CQC or battlefield rifle.

    Standard 20+1 capacity (until someone will get off their butt and manufacturer a double drum 7.62 - currently there is only a single drum and that won't work from a bench because it hangs down in the middle)

    It likes to eat American and Russian (we've fed it lots of Russian for fun).

    The scope on ol' boxy is 10-40x50 is that the correct way to say it?

    Have you considered putting slots on the side for a magazine or individual bullets of different calibers? That way, it could function not only as a recoil reduction and cooling system, but also as an ammo carrier.

    We have numerous ideas we are toying with, what you mention is one of them.

    Believe me its got a bit to go before I would venture to say its out of 'prototype' status.

    This revision we are also added slits that run up and down the side panels where a user can position picatinny rails in any configuration they want.

    Our only dislike for giving it mag carrier capability is what would be the purpose? With its intended application usually your "range cart" is nearby anyway.

    Now that I don't get. I understand making a heavy BR gun, but making one that'll accept gobs of accessories that are completely useless for BR shooting?

    Couldn't water also mess with the balance? Sloshing water may interfere by rocking the gun, being detrimental the extreme accuracy this thing would be designed for. Not trying to nit pick, just offering ideas because I want you to be as successful as posssible.
