I think all 50BMG owners have heard of them, they make a good rifle IMO.

Sure, started in 1975 by Klause Horstkamp. Run by larry Lyle now after the death of Klause in a truck accident. They both made/make great rifles that are very accurate and reasonably priced. I have been shooting them for over 12 years now and shot sub .5 MOA groups at 1000 yards with them.

My wife and I have a Rebel and love it. VERY accurate and very mild to shoot. A number of small children have shot it and all came away with the ".50 cal grin."

They have a great trigger, great/efficient muzzle brake, perfect bipod included, high quality barrels, good stocks, nice fit/finish/machining.

If you shoot one you will quickly discover there is zero need for a magazine.

You should be able to get either a standard base that is made by Larry or a tapered base that he makes.

Surprisingly enough the Rebel can be shot offhand standing up.

I remember seeing that at BRC 1 with TBK1's Rebel...if I remember right you hit the gong as well. You still got the M99?

Brc1 was Urdojis m82 offhand. I shot TBK1's the same way at another shoot. Both were pretty heavy but could still shoot pretty accurately offhand.
