I had mine in 2015
Message permalink: 706988811048976416
I went big on my first rifle, and then made the mistake of getting a cheap scope, haha. It works... I guess, it's just I don't do MOA, and I got it because it was a mildot reticle, but the turrets were MOA.
Message permalink: 706988866543812658
I considered the qc thing but it has the best aftermarket
Message permalink: 706988893052076052
So I can't effectively use it without too much math.
Message permalink: 706988908176474123
It does have a really good aftermarket.
Message permalink: 706988960861126689
So if you were gonna get it, and use it to build from, then it's decent I guess.

I went with a Mossberg MVP Precision rifle.

Yea I was telling myself I was going to get a DMR for my next purchase but I bought that M6 IC DI instead lol

Message permalink: 706989288897642576
Which I’m very happy with
Message permalink: 706989332770062556
I made a 20" AR off of a Aero upper for my 'DMR', but I might make a new one in the future and use a 18" .308 barrel instead.

Let your gun grow into the glass not the glass into the gun Or in layman's terms, buy good glass one time and build the rifle to fit it
Message permalink: 706990418239291392
Yep, I learned that afterwards.
Message permalink: 706990538347511829
I've learnt that the hard way as well
Message permalink: 706990724083613716
Well, I already told Leopold Optics that my next LR glass purchase will be through them, haha.
Message permalink: 706991055672967251
I told them I'd buy from them if they got Daddy Thumb to do an advertisement for them, and of course they tagged him and I in the same post, and he agreed.

Haven't seen said ad yet... but I'm waiting to see it.

For the more budget minded out there, Nikon is a great alternative to the super high end stuff, not as much variety but what they do have is pretty solid
Message permalink: 706991910266470410
Oh yeah, heard great things about their glass. After all, they make cameras.

Sparrow your friends with Daddy Thumb?

Keynote on the Nikon is all of their scopes are discontinued

I like it quite a bit for a budget LPVO
Message permalink: 706997917713432718
I sent in one of my first ever scopes to bushnell for repair. Their 223 1-4x24. They ended up sending me a brand new LPVO 1-4x24. Didn’t even tell me they were going to do that
Message permalink: 706998601875718175
Im surprised how clear the glass is. It’s not a bad scope at all. I paid 50$ for the one I sent in. They send me a 299$ for free

This thing looks interesting. Apparently holds 0.5 moa. I wouldn't get the cf barrel version though since i don't trust it https://christensenarms.com/modern-precision-rifle/
Message permalink: 707031662655045633
For a 16" barrel, .5 MOA? Nice.

They also make carbon fiber stocks for the 700

Just gonna go with a magpul 700. Maybe some day when I'm good enough with it to warrant it, I'll have a fancy barrel put in like a krieger or something

So, SHTF, what to do with guns i can't carry? I dont wanna leave them puppies, but realistically I could carry a rifle and pistol on me with a backpack on
Message permalink: 707047566130544640
If you have close friends and family who you don't want dying, you could lend them
Message permalink: 707047882510958643
I mean, cache them somewhere real good? Bury them or something?
Message permalink: 707052654412693524
Doing some reading about tikka and it kinda seems you get more for your money than the remington 700 with a decent aftermarket too
Message permalink: 707071706547880058
Tikkas are great rifles from everything I've heard.
Message permalink: 707071888051929098

this has me convinced
Message permalink: 707072056508022805
Remington 700s are overhyped. Everyone wants them because it's what the military adopted, and then their prices raised. Good rifles, but overhyped.
Message permalink: 707072081443160114
If you have the money, Tikka is a good choice.
Message permalink: 707072144047341580
I went with the Mossberg MVP Precision, because it's still sub-MOA and I liked the furniture and stock better than the Ruger Precision.
Message permalink: 707072251911995392
It looks like the tikka t3x is about the same price, sometimes cheaper, but shoots .25-.5 moa
Message permalink: 707073178786201712
with what people seem to say is a better action
Message permalink: 707073215746408478
I may replace the stock later so it's no big deal to me
Message permalink: 707073302904045568
Wait, how much are Tikkas these days?
Message permalink: 707073561113919569
I was used to seeing them for around 2k
Message permalink: 707073590188703815
they have models that are 2k with fancy stocks but the one that the picture above is from costs right at about 1k
Message permalink: 707073807936126976
Oh nice. Yeah, that's a good price.
Message permalink: 707073937934123059
For that kind of MOA that is, haha.
Message permalink: 707074010529267732
but even that is with an upgraded stock. Their cheapest non-lightweight variants run about 800
Message permalink: 707074079399739483
Not bad. Yeah, the MVP Precision is also a .5 MOA gun, but MSRPs around 1400. But you can grab them for around 1Kish.
Message permalink: 707074364549365770
Closer to 1200, but still.
Message permalink: 707074421822849104
Message permalink: 707076738269839410
mostly factory, minus the rail, scope, and I'm assuming muzzle device
Message permalink: 707076821316796449
Seems like a good deal man.

Well the Remington 700 is more than that at this point. 80% of precision rifle manufacturers use a modified r700 receiver

Message permalink: 707079846609813504
thinking about the tikka tx3 ctr. They basically threaded the varmint barrel and called it tactical. Then maybe later on the mdt lss gen two stock looks promising. Under 2 pounds, solid aluminum, and people seem to say good things about it.
Message permalink: 707080077707313225
Ah I mean good companies make it controlled feed and use dual M16 extractors

Message permalink: 707080280841912332
I had the earlier gen with a rather short forearm, I was very impressed with the build quality, I was underwhelmed by the ergonomics. But that was years ago and it appears their stuff is more thought out now, I would get one again.
Message permalink: 707081009946034228
Cool. I haven't heard anything bad about it so far. Stable, comfortable, tough but light, takes ar10 mags, has a thumb rest, barricade stop, and other features
Message permalink: 707081326632632338
Yeah, the new ones with the long handguard with integrated Swiss arca rail seem super functional

At the price point of that, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t get a JPC, and I know several people who have had that carrier and sooner or later felt the need to upgrade. That being said the build quality seems decent on those, I haven’t heard any complaints of unusually wear or failures
