  1. Guys, I'm looking for a carbine gas gun operator for a buddy of mine to go shoot a match. My friend is a bolt gun operator and he would like to enter the Tiger Valley Team Sniper Match September 19th and 20th near Waco, Tx. Here is a link to the Tiger Valley site: http://tigervalley.com/tigerpx/index.php?m...ex&cPath=16 Please contact me if you are seriously interested in shooting this match. Tiger Valley puts on a very physical and challenging match. You will need to be able to communicate effectively, resolve tactical problems, and work as a team. You will have to hump all your gear around the course, and there will be some very physical stages, so make sure you have tested your kit in the field. Being very proficient with your rifle and pistol are imperative if you are going to place well. I recommend shooting a .40 cal or larger pistol, as some stages require that you knock the steel down. I have seen guys dump an entire mag of 9mm in the top (head) of a steel plate to no effect. Most of the shooting for the carbine operator will be between 15 and 400 yards. You may be required to spot and ID targets at long range for the sniper (bolt gun operator), so using an optic with some degree of magnification will almost be a necessity. Last year most gas gunners ran AR-15 platforms using 5.56mm. A few guys ran the new gas piston rifles, and in various calibers like the 6.5 Grendel, Creedmoore, and 6.8 SPC. My partner ran an 18” SPR rifle in 5.56. He used a ACOG 4x with the BDC reticule, and had excellent results at making hits at 400 yards and at 300 yards on movers. You will find requirements for the match at the Tiger Valley web site or at The Sniper's Hide.com under the forums section: http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubbthread...d=28&page=1. My buddy is flying in from the east coast to shoot this match. He is a very good rifle and pistol shot, and typically places in the middle of the pack at matches (that's not bad considering the best shots in the U.S. normally finish in the top 25%). After you contact me I will send him your contact information and you can discuss the details of the match together. If you are interested in shooting this match, please contact me ASAP! Spots for the match are filling up, and there are only a few left. Please don't bother if you are not sure if you can do this thing. You need to be in good shape, know your rifle/pistol, have top quality gear, and have your head wired on the right way. This is a serious match, for serious prizes, shot by serious professionals! Thanks for you time and consideration, moaM4 T_Liggett2003@yahoo.com

    Best barrel for under $275.00

    Best barrel for under $275.00

    How about the E.R.Shaw barrels over at Model 1 sales? Or even White Oak barrels? Opinions are welcome!

    Best barrel for under $275.00

    Are the Wilson barrels accurate? Well made? Better than DPMS/Bushmaster/RRA barrels?
  7. My Bushmaster is not accurate, and I have pretty much eliminated all the possible causes with the exception of the barrel. I'm on a tight budget so I'd like to stay under $275.00 if I can. I wan't a 16', stainless match, 5,56 or Wylde chamber. Who makes the best barrel in this price range? Thanks for any and all,

    As you can see, I'm a bit of a bolt gun fan. Not to slight the mighty AR. They are great for 50 to 600yds. Beyond that, you really need to be looking at a .308, .260, or one of the new Rem or Win short mags. However, if you want to play in the 1000 yrd sand box you are going to need a bolt gun. Gas rifles just have too many things going on to deliver consistant 1000 yrd accuracy. You are on the right track with a Savage .308. The new Savages can be ordered with a McMillan A3 stock and detachable mag. There are a lot of after market products being made for the Savages now, and changing barrels and calibers is a snap. And, don't buy into the Remington hype, they are great guns, but Savages are more accurate right out of the box and are quite a bit less money! By the way, the green rifle in the pic above is a Savage 10FP in .308. It's just as accurate as my $3200.00 GAP 700 .260 Rem (the tan rifle). I recently took my Savage .308 to a shooting class and had no problem making torso hits at 1000 yrds. The only thing that is not stock on that Savage is the stock, the bolt handle, and the recoil lug. The action has been trued and timed, but that's it. Stock Savage barrel. Savage is good to go in my book! If you do get a Savage, you can send it to Stockade Gun World and for couple hundred bucks Kevin will true, time, bed, and set the barrel back a turn or so.... But only do that if it's not shooting .75 moa right out of the box (with quality ammo). Good luck,

    AR carrier key staking (pics)

    I was giving my Bushmaster a serious cleaning recently, when I picked up a hex head wrench and un-screwed the carier key hex screws. I know what you are thinking; nice work jack-ass. Can I resteak the key my self without damaging the bolt assembly? Or, should I play it safe and send it out to be done? Thanks for any and all, moaM4
