Santa brought me another Arctic Warfare:


This one is pretty much like my other ones but with a few tweaks. The receiver has the pic rail rather than the dovetail. The comb is adjustable for height. And there's a butt spike:


Brake is the double brake from the Arctic Warfare Super Magnum:


I dig that brake, but I think the best part of this rifle is the 5-25x56 scope:


It's not just the windage knob. This is a legit AI 5878 scope with laser filtration coatings and AI reticle. Even the 28 MOA AI scope mount is factory cut to clear the turret bell of the 5-25x56.

Fell in your lap? (as you like to say)

It did fall in my lap. One of my shooting friends had another shooting friend who was selling this rifle and scope. I wanted only the scope but the complete package was only $5,000, so there's no way I could say no. I bought everything.

Santa also dropped off an AW barrel change kit:




I always wanted one of these, but they were just too ridiculously priced. This used set was $600 on Calguns of all places, so I couldn't say no. Even $600 is a lot, but I'm a sucker for factory stuff like this.

The anvil on the torque wrench slides off and the action wrench fits into the torque wrench like so:


I love the shitty chain.

I made a mistake on the AI part number for the scope. It's not 5878. It's 5848:

Hot damn.

So what's happening here?

Is that a gun you used to own that somebody else is flipping now?

That's Ho's old AE. It went from Ho to my friend Steve and from Steve to my friend Aaron. Aaron is now a starving student, so he needs to sell the rifle for tuition and books.

For John, who may love nothing more than a shitty box for a cool gun.

I wonder if the same company that made those cases made these cases:

I love the swoop on the G22's bolt handle:

Unusual G22:

Quote:
A sniper of the Infantry School of the German Bundeswehr holds up his G22 gun during an exercise in the uninhabited village 'Bonnland' in Hammelburg, Germany, 3 February 2003. 'Bonnland' is a village of vacated and empty buildings used as scenery for military drills. The 100-year-old houses have no window panes and no furniture, which makes them an ideal site for the training of how to conquer villages and towns in a war.

It almost feels like a prototype or test weapon. The scope is clearly not the Hensoldt SSG scope and looks like a Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 PM1. The mount looks like the scope mount seen on a lot of Belgian AWs. The reserve rear sight is the Belgian type as well. The butt is not quickly adjustable for length and the buttplate seems to be non-adjustable as well. Compare that weapon to this one:

Another weirdo G22:


The rifle looks pretty standard G22, but the iron sights are gone and the Accuracy International bipod has been replaced with a Harris.

The scope and mount are weird too. The scope looks like a Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 PM2 scope and the mount is an uber-tall AI mount.

Compare that weapon to this very standard-looking G22:

I wonder if Claus Josef was issued that shitty shoulder holster or if he scored it at tactical.de.

LOCATION: Nahr-E-Sahraj
UNIT: 1 LANCS
JOB NUMBER: TFH-4MechBde-2012-175
PHOTOGRAPHER: Cpl Mike O'Neill RLC

CAPTION:CORRUNA COMPANY, THE 1st BATTALION THE DUKE OF LANCASTER’S REGIMENT (1 LANCS) DEPLOY ON OPERATION QALB 11
Deploying repeatedly on the ground in the lower Nahr-E-Sahraj district as part of Operation QALB 11, the soldiers of 2 Platoon, Corrunna Company (Coy), 1 LANCS kept up the pressure of patrolling onto insurgent held ground. Letting their Afghan allies, the Afghan Uniformed Police (AUP), lead the way, they supported and advised to take the emphasis off the building of a new bridge in a spot where the Taliban had previously destroyed an old one.
The patrolling was a success with repeated IED finds by the AUP who destroyed them in place. They also confiscated or destroyed items used by insurgents as they went along searching compounds in the area, which were known to be used as firing points or places for Insurgents to live.

Exercise Peregrine Sword took place in Wildflecken, Germany in September 2012. Aim of the exercise was to train the comprehensive approach and train subordinate units such as 11 Airmobile Brigade from Arnhem, The Netherlands. This exercise was also one of the first times the combined fire support batallion of Germany and the Netherlands trained together.
