Did you read the article all the way to the end? This part really caught my eye:

"The base price of the rifle is $4,800, and evidently there are a wide array of custom options available to enhance your enjoyment of the new weapon platform."
POLITICIANS & DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON

A person properly schooled in right and wrong is safe with any weapon. A person with no idea of good and evil is unsafe with a knitting needle, or the cap from a ballpoint pen.

I remain pessimistic given the way BATF and the anti gun crowd have become tape worms in the guts of the Republic. - toad

Well, Precision did not list price point as one of his criteria ;)

For the record.
Unless I win lotto or win the heart of a very loaded women, price will be a criteria.

Seeing as I forgot to buy tickets for the big powerball, I guess it is back to manwhoring. lol

upon further research, it looks like I will have to limit the projectiles to the 123-129 weight range and perhaps exclude some of the VLD's due to COAL issues.

I have two people with machining ability to help with the project. If it entertains them enough, we may build one or both of them and see what happens. Not sure I want to put a grand or two into the process, but it might be fun. Doubt it would be a commercially viable idea, but having a +2800 fps 129 gr 6.5 in an AR-15 would be awesome fun.
