  1. OK, I got mixed up alittle, here's a quote from the book -

    "Whereas the Winchester/Remington and M14 sniper rifles began to lose accuracy over 800 yards, the specially prepared single-shot .50 caliber M2 was able to hit targets nearly 1000 yards away in darkness (the book was previously talking about night vision devises for sniper rifles), and in skillful hands, over double that distance in the daylight. Joseph Ward remembers sinking an empty sampan with an explosive bullet at a range of 2000 yards, and Carlos Hathcock killed a VC supply carrier at the extraordinary distance of 2500 yards using an M2 with an Unertl scope."

    It doesn't say whether Hathcock used a semi-automatic or fully-automatic M2, but there were semi-automatic M2s... I'll take your word for it though ;)

  2. I'm not very keen on the subject, but I do recall reading Hathcock actually used a modified M2 that was only capable of single shots. This may or may not be true, either way a impressive record. Just wanted to add to the conversation.

    You're right. Hathcock did use a modified M2 that was capable of semi-automatic fire. I'm currently reading Sniper by Adrian Gilbert, it talks about Hathcock's amazing shot using the M2.

  3. Dude u r lucky so VERY lucky....insurance should be cheap on that thing depending how u do it. Get that baby insured and drive her to KC, MO so I can take her for a spinĀ  :D

    Insurance may be, but the gas won't ;) Anytime time I plan on heading south, Stinger, I'll be sure to stop by with her :thumbsup:

  4. 1960-70's Pontiac GTO, any of 'em! Especially the '69 Judge. And BTW, I own a blue 1971 Pontiac GTO 400 :rocky: It was given to me by my father. Right now it just sits in the shed, with a cover over it, I don't have it insured :unsure:

  5. I tried taking a look a at the scope/mounting, but there was always a bad view or there was ghillie material on it.

    I also got a good look at "Flea's" (the sniper's) suppressed M4 when he was in the tree during the raid of the villiage that was being cleansed. It's definately not an ACOG (or an actual Aimpoint). I don't know what it is...

  6. the second rifle, was a xm-21, i belive, u can see it clearly when he goes to shoot the "spy" damn, what a shot. HOOYAH!

    The M25's forestock (muzzle end) looks just like the M21's. And since the M25 has replaced a majority of the M21's in the Navy... I'm betting my money it's an M25/XM25. I'll have to watch the DVD again, see if I can spot any distinguishing features.
