Hi everyone. What are your opinions on the Remington “Urban Sniper Rifle” (factory version)? I’m an Australian ex "gun snob". Back in the day when I first got into bolt rifles, I fell for the “European made must be best” camp, to me, Steyr, AI, Blaser, Mauser etc MUST be the best. About twenty years after, buying/shooting/selling I thought I’d give something else a try and bought a factory new M24. Needless to say, I’m now a convert. I still like/appreciate Euro rifles (love the SSG-69 & Mauser 98), however fully appreciate non-Euro engineering. For all the high tech actions available now, I find the basic “2-lug” of my M24 smooth as. Anyway, I’m thinking of getting a USR as a short barrel option (just for fun!), any thoughts?

    If your M24 is 308 then yes, why not a 18”-20“ barrel for it. If you already have a 308 barrel that is shooting good I would shorten it and get a WM bolt and spin up a 300WM barrel for theM24 and let the fun begin, I would go with a 24“ for the WM.
