"Turn In."Skunk, what does the tag attached to the rifle say?
Hmmmm... Wonder whose house that is in those "dated" pictures?They had some variations of Remingtons built back in the 80’s and 90’s that can be seen on some vintage YouTube videos on the HRT that one can find. If that’s the era you and looking at...
Some were straight up M40A1 copies, and used Unertl 10x scopes, later versions had the same barreled action in a McM A2 stock. Given the proximity to the MTU/PWS at Quantico it’s probably reasonable they went to them for guidance in the early days of building their own rifles?
here are some screenshots from a dated FBI video on YouTube

AWESOME THANK YOU!!Ok.. This is the barrel marking on a Win 70 still in an FBI field office. Not a great pic, but it's all I've got right now. Every one I've seen is exactly like this. Very faint, right at the stock line about 4-5" forward of recoil lug. Kinda have to be looking for it....the kind of stamp easily filled with paint.
Nice job. Beautiful build overall.Wasn't happy with the bedding job I originally did. I skim bedded it over the top of the original bedding and the barreled action just sat too high. So, I ground it all out, down to the fiberglass, and re-did it completely. Much happier with the way it turned out.

Skunk im sure could answer your question.Thanks to my friend and fellow squirrel-enthusiast @168BTHPM I finally managed to get ahold of the grail of USO... the SN-9. Not just any SN-9. Serial number 2. Showed up at a Texas gun shop on top of a weird rifle... for $999 for the package. 168 took up the rifle... I got the scope...www.snipershide.com
So maybe someone here can help with a question... I just picked up this really nice SN9 USO scope. But it's a bit different from most of the production. It's a 6 x 30, not a 10x40. And has the serial number SN9-2a. Not SN9. And serial number 002. Very low.
While searching around the Interwebs for information, I came across a post from c. 2014 or so that says the FBI bought some 60 of the SN9's, which would be about 10 percent of production. But I'd never heard such a thing. That doesn't mean it's not true!
Anyone have any insight into this USO oddball?
BTW, it is from the era when JBWIII would build you anything you wanted, pretty much. This has right side windage turret. Dot reticle. No Illum. Serial 002.
I have an e-mail out to USO... hoping to get build sheet copy and info. But who knows what survived the move to NC.
Any of you guys have any ideas on whether SN9's were used? Were they custom if they were?
