    Thanks Doc & Exo on your explanations!
    No probs ladz... I was never a sniper myself, but had an interest in long barrels and ballisitics which was incouraged in the field craft and weapons training modules of my own training... interesting stuff... that said, they never let us zero our own weapons... LOL... close but no cigar for Uncle Exo....

    We kinda got off topic on this thread, so I'll start a new one on a recent development in the sniper community - but after extensive research, consultation with my fellow Master Gunners, and offline conversation with Exo1, we've established that the Bravo 51 has never been typed or issued, though it has been purchased by a few select units as a non-standard item. Which also kills the myth of the 'Kate' rifle. But that's all right, truth is indeed more fantastic than fiction, which brings us to my next post, on the NEW mark for the longest sniper kill on record...

    Is that the one where the Canadian Soldier made a kill in excess of a mile out, Doc? I believe he shot at a concrete wall & saw a huge splatter of blood behind it!

    Nope - that was the old record, set by Canadian Master Corporal Rob Furlong of Princess Patricia's Light Infantry - see my new thread for the latest story.

    OMG- I just asked that question on Doc's record setting thread. I heard from my fellow Soldier's that a canadian with the help from US SF set the record a few years back with a kill shot thru two cinder block walls for the record setting sniper kill shot in afganny..Something about changing the caliber so it would maintain it's flight for a much greater distance..
    Congratulations Night, Welcome to the team and back into the game, different department, agency, the same game. You'll roll over your days and be golden. Welcome back to the continental breakfast highway, lol. - Del The S**t.

    As long as the M25 receiver is not a rear lug set up. Sage EBR stocks only accept non-rear lug receivers.


    Standard Receiver
