Birthday present for a Marine

Trying to decide what to give a 49 year old Marine for his birthday.
Standard builds have worked in the past, but my son is looking for something scoped. Well, digging around the shop and putting things I think he might like I came up with this.
All Bula XM21 CBR with Leupold VXR-Patrol 1.25 - 4 in a composite stock with Harris bipod. Can't wait to see the look on his face when he gets this one.

Beautiful, Art. Just beautiful. As a son, any handcrafted present from a father is precious. As a Marine, that’s a beautiful piece.

Your taste and workmanship is exquisite. I’m glad to share a state line with you.

Semper FI to your son; we are just a few years off, he and I.

And Good Lord, Semper Fi to you too.

Happy son Sean and I packed up the truck for his trip back to Maine today.
We managed to shoe horn an old bush hog in the back. Should help in maintenance of his acreage up North.
