    20" SAM-R USMC Upper Half




    Nope. I'm just good at remembering what the experts (like Jon) post. I know that the CHF barrel is better but I can't remember if it will last longer or shoot better. I just don't know. I do know that the mid length guns are easier on the BCG and break less often over the long run.
    A Mk12 and SAM-R are not M4's, tech speaking. Yes, they are AR platform designed, but in no way are they an M4 Carbine.


    I've yet too see a "Sniper" use a typical M4 on any "Sniper" designated Ops.

    Oh, you where joking. But, If sent in deep with my spotter I'm not running a Mk12 or a SAM-R.
    Perhaps your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.

    Yes, I was joking. My reply was sarcasm in response to this guy.

    I am not a sniper. Nor do I play one on TV. I was a sailor. If you want to learn about rust prevention and gray paint then I'm your man.

    Snipers (military) carry an M4 as a defense gun with their mane rifle in certain situations, So I would agree with the statement. Why lug around an M16 when you can carry an M4 firing both I rather have the M16 if I had to snipe with but I much rather have to carry the M4 around especialy if I had a sniper rifle as well

    If he was implying snipers before the M4 as the "sniper rifle" then thats doubtful.
