Reproduction Sniper Rifle

Remington 700/US M40 Reproduction Sniper Rifle. Official limited number copy of the rifle used by Chuck Mawhinney in Vietnam; fitted with a variable power 3-9 x 40 Redfield, made by Leupold, green anodised day scope. The rifle is based on a commercial Remington Model 700 fitted with a 1:12 RH twist and non-gloss black finish barrel pillar bedded into a walnut stock with an alloy butt plate, in a faithful reproduction of the original rifle. The rifle has a clip-loading slot in the top of the action, just like the original, even though the scope prevents relaoding via clips. The crown is not recessed and the stock is plain and unchequered, as matched to the original rifle. The bolt side of the receiver is etched with Chuck’s initials and the number 8541, which is the Marine designation for scout-snipers. The rifle action has been pillar-bedded in Marine-Tex to the same details performed by the USMC and the barrels are free-floated. The rifle has been replicated to exacting standards and weighs in at 9 3/4 pounds, just as the original did. This rifle is no 92, of a limited production run of 103,the number of confirmed kills attributed to Chuck Mawhinney. Chuck has personally fired this rifle putting the first rounds through the barrel to check for accuracy and a round log book, signed by Chuck, and a signed limited edition print are included in the purchase. One of only a handful of the 103 ever made that are in this Country, 75 rounds fired only
