All answers to the questions below are appreciated. I’m asking because DH has developed several rifles that fit the above criteria and some government agencies have expressed interest in buying them. We’re in the process of getting a FFL w/ 07/02 SOT. I’m trying to gauge if it would be worth advertising to the public as well, or if we should stick with the .gov contracts for now.

1) How much would you be willing to pay for a semi-auto .308 rifle system guaranteed to shoot 0.25 MOA or better? (AR10 or M1A)

2) How much would you be willing to pay for a semi-auto .308 rifle system guaranteed to shoot 0.5 MOA or better? (AR10 or M1A)

3) How much would you be willing to pay for a bolt-action .308 rifle system guaranteed to shoot 0.25 MOA or better?

4) How much would you be willing to pay for a bolt-action .308 rifle system guaranteed to shoot 0.5 MOA or better?

5) How much would you be willing to pay for a bolt-action .50 BMG rifle system guaranteed to shoot 0.25 MOA or better?

6) How much would you be willing to pay for a bolt-action .50 BMG rifle system guaranteed to shoot 0.5 MOA or better?

I used the phrase “rifle system” above. This includes a scope (Leupold or better quality w/ mil-dot reticle), sound suppressor (all NFA laws apply), aftermarket target barrel and trigger, hard case, bipod, and the appropriate gunsmithing to make the system work as advertised. The product will be a turn-key rifle system and will arrive zeroed and ready to go.

Accuracy testing would be done with a known load (e.g. Lake City Match) from a stable platform, not offhand. :-)

TIA!

Ah, you do realize the suppressor alone (NFA item) will cost about that much?
