I looked at both as new, but then an ex-Israeli sniper M82-A1 fell into my lap. I couldn't pass it up for the price and have been very happy with it.

The Mason-Dixon FAL Association wants YOU!! Ask me for details.

You never know what's going on inside the mind of a crazy man!!

I have a Serbu BFG50a, and like it because of the gas impingement system. No experience with the Barrett.

I worked at both Barrett and Serbu.
I liked the BFG-A better because of the much better accuracy of it.
50 BMG, when it absolutely, positively has to be destroyed right now!

Get a CWA M2 or M3. Might as well go belt fed!
They will live a long time, these men of the South Pacific. They, like their victories, will be remembered as long as our generation lives. Longer and longer shadows will obscure them, until their Guadalcanal sounds distant on the ear like Shiloh and Valley Forge. --- Michener, Tales of the South Pacific
