Wouldn't strapping the rifle onto a sled eliminate the human from the equation?

Kinda like the guys claiming to have a dead Bigfoot in their freezer. Okay,a chimp,I might believe. Especially when it's something he's trying to sell.

It's a phenomenon associated with mythical things like unicorns. Some time back during the American Dark Ages there were a couple guys one in particular that were turning slow speed CS6 Lister Diesels into these amazing power houses that would run continually for 100k hours. These of course are engines from a bigone era that are interesting and useful but are never going to be super stars running generators. And about every 6 months someone on the board would find his website and post all the amazing stuff they'd just discovered only to have the folks who know shoot it out of the sky.

It used to be that you should be that you believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see. Now it seems that it relates to most of what you read.

This reminds me of the fellow that sells the worlds finest coat hanger, will hold up to 200 pounds, can be fasten anywhere, easily transported, so ya can take it with you when you move, and its guaranteed for life!

One for 19.95, but with a one day special of 2 for 19.95 with free shipping.

Of course when ya get your super duper coat hanger, it's simply a 16D common nail.

It was normal for me to eat 2 with the lot and a chocolate milk for lunch a few times a week so you must be a light weight when it comes to eating. I have been 200 pounds for 30+ years. Went to the sun burnt cow in NY and ate 3 a few times. If you have not been to the sun burnt cow you need to make a trip there

I bashed him because his claims were so outrageous as to be unbelievable.

If it was me and I had genuinely built several L1A1's that were MOA or sub MOA, I would take my own personal rifles (that Ant says he has two of) and shoot them on video. Sleds don't need to be built, there are plenty of them out there for not much more than $50.

Once I had the video, I'd take great pleasure in posting it far and wide to show the Pom bastage just how wrong he was. If the guy lived in the same state, sure, I'd invite him over, ask him to bring his own match ammo and either let him shoot the rifle or demo just how good mine shot. Very, very simple and easy as hell to do.

2007: I'm working for LWRC as VP Operations and I'm part of a team flown out to Jordan to demo our rifles for the Jordanian Royal Guard, Special Forces and Police Spec Ops. We were trying to sell them on the 6.8 PDW, the piston drive system and the .308 Sniper, Assaulter and Battle Rifle. (SABR) When it comes to demo day for the SABR, the SF guys have one of their 'snipers' shoot the gun. As are most things in the ME, the process is corrupt and the sniper has been paid to make the rifle shoot poorly. Not only that, they are using 1970's Paki 7.62 ammo so you can imagine how well that crap grouped, not.

Our local rep makes some complaints and we get a do over. This time the coppers provide some SAKO match ammo and I do the shooting. Multiple sub MOA groups make the 'sniper' look like shit and our rifle performs according to our claims. Now, the Jordanians didn't buy anything because we didn't pay anyone off like the Europeans do but the demo at least showed the ability of the rifle: why is it so hard for Ant to do something similar?

Hell, Anthony has his own FAL Files account but was having you post for him so the whole thing was kinda shady to start with. You may be right about us sharing a beer or something similar but whenever someone has called me on making claims about my life or things I have done, I have taken great pleasure in showing them the proof of my claims.

Because the mods know when they see it and don't want it disseminated either. See Tac's meme post above as proof.

For the record though I've climbed Everest, had tea with the queen, taken a hot-air balloon around the world in 79 days, swam the English Channel, wrestled aligators, and had Kim Jong Un in my crosshairs but didn't take the shot. No pics though, you've got to just believe me.

Who remembers the early Isuzu commercials with Joe Isuzu? Like him "you can trust me!"

So a few pages ago, I posted that about 12 years ago, I had built a very specific FAL in order to see what I could wring out of the system and I dug it out of deep storage this weekend. I haven't shot it for about 12 years, it is a pig but it is built to perform. Even so, I couldn't get repeatable sub or even MOA groups out of it. I might take it out next weekend and see what she will do now...

Has a custom match barrel made by Blood of Tyrants from a blank I supplied. Has an OPS Inc muzzle brake, Izzy HB GB, Birdman fully adjustable stock and pistol grip with a tuned trigger and trigger shoe. Its built on one of the finest receivers ever made anywhere, a DSA Grayslake Stainless, no carry handle, machined from billet by LMT type 1. Rigid, solid and made right. Minimum headspace set and a match chamber. Williams QD Pro scope mount, Swarvoski scope in a LaRue Tactical mount and rings. No expense spared and the only thing I couldn't figure out was a freefloat hand guard. I think it weighs about 17 pounds...

Maybe I needed to live in either Enfield or Liege to make this sucker shoot...

Cool

now now gman go back and look I posted 3 responses for him and by that time he figured out his pw issue. you might be a little paranoid, its not like Anthony started any of these threads , he had like 5 or so posts for 2006 I guess conspiracy abound at every turn . I've never meet Anthony I don't know what he looks like ive spoken to him on the telephone for all I know you are him posting these threads to rev up business

I'm saying this Gman you are a world class C&^t I don't believe you were in the brit army or that you did anything else you have ever said on here and while I'm at it F&*K u you godless savage brush your teeth I can smell em from here you old shit . Now I'm going to drive to your house l,ets hang out , no you would want to I doubt I would be welcome ,well that's my point! I wouldn't either I would have my back up , no way I would ever trust you. do you think Anthony might have his back up? its not Aussies are know for our patience good temper and not hold a grudge till the end of ******* time.

look I'm just as curious as the everyone to see if his rifle can shoot sub moa . but then again i've a life and a week from I will forget all about this , I think most you will as well old as you are <----joke

really what's in it for him? sales wont jump through the roof there are 3 more left wait he gets to appease a group of people that have been bashing him from the get go . well hell I bet he gets right on it . I think it would annoy you all more if he didn't show it. For myself this has been a real eye opener poor dave cant eat more than one burger in a sitting for his whole life or he gets SUper FAT oi dave you fat C^&t have some chips mate I mean think about that poor bastard . Hell I'm still waiting for an explanation of how you add mass when machining more grooves and twist rate into a bore.

far be it for me to point out the obvious Australians cant spell but its seems Yanks cant read or comprehend what's written that's all I've really got from this Thread

now you lot can get back to yelling at each other I'm out



Cheers cocklovers

Will

btw Gman I don't think your a C%^t
