I would love to try one of these high end firearms. I would probably never be in a financial position to buy one.

I would love to try one as well. I’d also want to shoot it next to a standard carbine and see how my groups differed. I think that would be the true test of the marksman and really show you how good you are vs the tool you are using.

I was fast becoming sort of a fan of LMT rifles but I didn’t own one. So, I bought one. I bought a LMT Sharpshooter Rifle chambered in 7.62x51mm with Pelican Case, Harris Bi-pod, 8 magazines and all the other stuff that goes with it. I received it 19 weeks after I placed the order and I paid about $4,700 for it. I’m not rich guys so paying that much for a rifle really, really hurt the pocket book. What hurt even more was seeing the rifle I had ordered when it was delivered. What a disappointment… At first glance I knew the rifle I had just received needed to go back to LMT to be re-manufactured /refurbished. To LMT’s credit they apologized, paid for the return shipping and promised to make it right. I’ll keep you posted as to how well they do…

I would love to buy a weapon such as this – thanks to the push to ban these, they are rapidly becoming impossible to find! Going to a gun show this weekend in the hopes of still finding one.
