Once again I've discovered another candidate in my search for a top notch varmint rifle. From what I see and read on the website this baby looks preety sweet. Any educated opinions?

I saw a guy at my range shoot truly sick groups with a Les Baer...pretty much one ragged 9mm or smaller sized hole at 100 yards, and there were a BUNCH of them on the paper.  At $2000 or so, it's a *little* pricy for me...but it was a beautiful rifle, and if my budget allowed, I'd probably have one.  

Having said that, my mix 'n match Armalite/Eagle 20" rifle will shoot sub MOA all day, and is capable of 1/2" IF I can do my part...I get lucky occasionally!  I paid $800 for the upper and lower w/ match trigger.  So, you gotta ask, is that 1/4" or so worth $1200?  For $2000, you could get 2 ARs, AND put a pretty good piece of glass on one of them.  

Once again, though, if your budget allows it, go for it!  I certainly don't think you'll be disappointed.

The Les Baer is a great rifle but the cost is extremely high. I reccomend:

Buy:

1 SET fitted upper and lower from LES BAER $300
2 1 Jewel trigger $175?
3 lower completion kit $60 (I have one for $30 shipped without hammer, trigger disconnector that are included with the Jewel unit)
4 A2 buttstock $60
5 Krieger double cryoed heavy barrel with gas block $500
6 Free float tube (whichever you want).

[b]The Krieger barrel will outshoot the Les BAer barrel and the gun will cost about $1200 as opposed to the LesBaer $2400[/b]
