    Yeah, $1500 so I'm definately interested. I also dug up some Korean Magazines which after a bit of attention work fine. How are you getting on with accuracy now? Had a chance to play with loads yet?

    One of our local gun shops in Tulsa had a new RFB (briefly) for $1269. Manufacturing seems to be catching up.

    They have released a RFB-C (non-restricted Canada legal) up here guys are just now getting them and the reports are all good so far.

    They are having a few issues with getting any kind of accuracy but from what I am reading the guys that already have them are blasters over people that work up loads for accuracy so not get good accuracy reports yet is understandable.

    There is a thread I read yesterday; I forget which forum it is in now; stating that they will have one at SHOT.

    I'll be impressed if Alex shows up to the Range Day with a bunch of functional M's in various barrel lengths.

    I'd like to see that too. If he turned up with a couple fo rifles with decent triggers, showed quality construction, good acuracy and reliability he'd be able to stick two fingers up at all of us, me included. Would I like that, yes, believe it or not.

    The platform has serious potential, but only if he actually delivers it.

    Subject: [Dtiquips] 2011 SHOT Show, Range Day

    17 Jan 11

    2011 SHOT Show, Las Vegas, NV, Range Day:

    We're here in Las Vegas, NV for the 2011 SHOT Show, starting tomorrow.
    However, the live-fire Range Day was today at a local outdoor range complex.

    Aimpoint, LaRue, Gemtech, US Ordinance, Hans Vang, and LMT all had their
    wears on display and available for live-fire for those inclined.

    My notes:

    There are currently a number of attempts to combine optics suitable for
    close-range shooting with long-range capabilities, creating a rifle with a
    wide spectrum of capabilities. Most are bulky and require close eye-relief,
    but there is clearly significant interest in such a system.

    Leupold's HAMR (Highly Accurate, Multiple Range) optic combines a compact,
    ruggedized four-times optic with a piggyback, zero magnification
    mini-screen on top.

    Their CQBSS Mark-8 is a 1-8 times optic with multiple functions.

    LaRue combines a long-range scope with a piggybacked Aimpoint T1.

    Aimpoint has a offset mount that permits the shooter to sight through his
    scope on top of the rifle, but, with a slight move of his head, switch to a
    T1 mounted at a forty-five degree angle on the right side.

    Again, all are designed to allow a sniper to fight his way to a position,
    engaging close targets on the way, then switch to effective long-range
    shooting once he gets there. And again, the price one pays is bulk, weight, and
    close eye-relief.

    LaRue and LMT, both well-known for high quality and superb customer
    service, had on display 308 rifles, on the Stoner System. LMT also chambers
    theirs for 243, 260, 338 Fed, and 7mm/08 Rem.

    US Ordinance, makers of heavy weapons for the military, had on display
    their M2 (Browning 50cal HMG). It ran fine, but the days of tediously
    adjusting head-space (using "go" and "no-go" feeler-gauges) when changing
    barrels is over! Head-space is "set" at the factory, and a barrel change now
    takes less than ten seconds! Quite an advance.

    There upgrade of the troublesome M60 LMG, called the M60E4, has finally
    turned a historically untrustworthy weapon into a reliable one. In Vietnam,
    we could not keep M60s running, despite meticulous maintenance. Those days
    are now over! The E4 runs well, and US Ordinance will be busy for the
    next several years refurbishing all the old M60s, now found throughout the
    world.

    I talked this afternoon with Alex Robinson of Robinson Arms. He will be
    down tomorrow with his XCR, now available in 308. I'll have my hands on it
    shortly! So, those in need of a battle-rifle in 308 will now have yet
    another excellent choice!

    Show officially starts tomorrow morning.

    More later!

    /John

    Any more updates?

    I really enjoy the XCR-L and would certainly be interested in the M,

    Thanks
