I did three flavors, but it took over 4 years, a bit of luck on the A1 parts, and lots of $ along the way.What is your favorite Marine Corps Rifle? M40A1 or M40A3
Now thats a gorgeous rifle! What bag and size is that?I fell in love with the "USMC Sniper Rifle" after watching Sniper with Tom Berenger in theaters as a kid. Wanted one ever since. Found a "clone" build and snapped it up even though it was pricey ($5000 CDN) which included the MST-100 (these scopes go for about $3500-$4000 on their own).
That being said, I wouldn't mind having an A3. They are even more expensive though, about $5000 for the rifle without an optic. But the ergonomics of the stock is better for the longer range shooting I find.
All in all though, the A1 is a rifle that everyone knows. They see it and know it's the "USMC Sniper Rifle".
It's the Blackhawk Long Gun Drag Bag! Picked it up used from a kid getting out of airsoft for about 1/4 of it's original price.Now thats a gorgeous rifle! What bag and size is that?

I bought it originally for my Tikka Mcmillan but decided to keep it for the A1... seemed to just suit it.
Trust the bag trusted and currently used by Special Forces. The Long Gun Sniper Drag Bag is made of rugged 1,000 denier nylon and closed cell foam with internal weapon-securing straps for complete firearm protection. There are also two internal utility pouches for additional storage.blackhawk.com
If you choose to do an M40A1 build, I recommend that you start by hunting down the four key ingredients seen in the 1st pic (barrel, mount, scope, and stock).Im thinking of doing the M40A1 first
