    Closest thing I have to a "sniper rifle". I call it a deer rifle, but you could call it a "sniper rifle" if you wish, because its plenty accurate.

    Savage 110 .30-06 with 3-9x scope:

    Here's my home built 91/30 replica w/red star 4x scope, and even though you can't really call it a sniper I'd feel more confident taking shots with my old reliable savage.

    Not the best pic but one heck of a sweet shooter. ;) This one is my USMC DMR clone. It started as a rack grade M1A but I did a little work to it. The flash suppressor is a national match reamed style, sights are national match M2A sights, the barrel is a medium weight Douglas barrel. The gas cylinder has been unitized and the pistol was replaced with a BPT match grade piston. The scope mount is another BPT item and the rings are Leupold Mk-4 rings. Mounted is a Leupold Vari-X III M3LR 3.5-10X40mm scope. The stock is interesting in that it was actually a surplus stock from the DMR program which explains the selector cutout on the stock and has been bedded with Devcon to free-float the barrel.

    Here's another one that has always been a pretty decent tack driver as well. She started out as a Remington 700VS but I upgraded the stock with a McMillian A4 instead of the older H-S stock it came with. In the nose of the stock a spigot for the bipod is fitted into the stock and sports a Parker-Hale steel bipod. The trigger was replaced with a Timmeny trigger and the scope is again another Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10X40mm but this time with the M1 turrets instead of the BDC. A little more precise adjsutments but not nearly as fast to adjust. The rings and mounts are Leupold however I may replace them with a Badger mount and rings in the future.

    Not much has been done to this one. This is a NDM-86 Norinco copy of the SVD in .308 Winchester. When I got it, I wasn't expecting great accuracy out of it but I was plesantly surprised to find that Federal Gold Medal Match ammo would go into 3/4MOA groups with it. What limits it's long range ability is the lower powered 4X scope. Yeah, I could get a better scope but I like it with the original scope design the SVD came with.

    This is the wife's rifle. This is a Savage 10fp in.308 as well. Not too much has been done to it other than replacing the crappy factory trigger with one from Sharp Shooters Suply. The scope is a Tasco Super Sniper scope in 10X and for the low price, I am impressed by it's performance. It's mount and rings are again Leupold and the bipod is a Harris model. Again, it's not complete as I want to replace the sock with another McMillian, perhaps an A5 this time, sometime in the future.

    [​IMG]


    Finally, this one is more or less around just for the historical sense of having one. This is a Soviet 1891/30 PU sniper that I wound up getting after watching "Enemy at the Gates" one too many times I guess. Not a bad rifle and it's a lot lighter than the others. I'm still woking on brewing up some match grade ammo with Lapua brass and Sierra 174 grain match grade bullets. However, like the SVD, I think it's limited by it's low power 3.5X optics. Still a fun rifle to shoot but not for anything serious.

    Grunt, sir, may no one ever piss you off at more than 100 yards.:evil:

    Where did you happen to come across your DMR stock?

    Well, it's been several years now and I don't remember exactly but I think I got it from McMillian directly.

    I'm surprised that no one has posted any M-24's. I know they're expensive but not any more so than alot of the ones up here.

    Here it is. I finally got my rings on Friday but didn't get it put together until Sunday. Hopefully, I'll be able to get to the range this weekend.

    This thread didn't last too long. What happened?

    it's not black and evil looking and it doesn't have a bipod... but i reckon this is as close as i have with a "sniper rifle"... hand built as a winter "boredom" project... i'm quite content with the performance...
