    Mjoiner, I'm shocked they didnt sell more of those rifles for DMR rifles to our boys, makes no sense

    I have a NIB, unfired A3G. Iíve been far too busy in life to take the time and stretch itís legs.

    I also bought an SPR action - should have bought two or three.

    I initially thought/was told that FN would barrel that action for me but when I spoke to them they said it would be too labor intensive for them at that time.

    Iíll get Mike Rock to put a 17-4 PH stainless steel barrel with a 1/10 twist (if he can locate the steel) or perhaps get a Carbon-fiber PROOF twisted on it. Not sure and my life circumstances are such that I am not in a position to do a lot of long range Precision shooting/training so maybe Iíll do nothing.

    I adore the FN rifles and should have purchased a basic one after the A3G. I kick myself everything I look at itÖ

    For the life of me, I wish FN would have continued with that rifleÖ

    When I went out with them a couple years ago I saw Markm make a few hits on a target at 1300ish yards with that rifle shooting (I believe) 175 SMK. It's an amazing rifle. The reason I had my APR built was because of that rifle, and I couldn't find a FN for sale anywhere.

    Mijoir, you have got the ultimate stash. Post a pic of that FN goodness. Their actions are highly sought after, as you know. Well done.

    I keep telling myself I don't really need a .223 bolt action, but I know it's going to happen sooner or later. It just seems like it would be too much fun.

    I'd argue that MOST people ONLY need a .223 bolt gun. I always chuckle when guys ask what gun to buy and they say they can only shoot to 400 yards in their area.... yet they think they need a 7.62 or a 6.5cm, etc. WTF? Save a fortune on ammo and run a .223 that will get you to 1000 yards easy.
