    Wow, very cool

    A brand new, unfired (!!!) Remington 700 sniper on the CMP's auction page. Super cool.

    The Remington might be brand new because of this; the replacement, an XM-3.

    Also on the CMP auction site at the same time. They are both currently at 11,000.00+. I don't have a spare 11k in my back pocket but if I did I would be hard pressed to pick which one I would want more, ...

      I love sniper rifles and would love to have either. I think at those prices, I can easily justify getting a 2nd FN SPR for a backup lol. No collector value but they shoot lights out.

        Still digging these.

        Personally, IMHO, I think the XM-3 is the more significant piece - it is a documented USMC piece that was actually there (My question is; if they are surplussing these then what has replaced it?).

        I still don't have any idea what something like this might actually be worth, nor do I have that kind of scratch to throw at it regardless of how cool it might be, but it is fun to see them, ... both. Very cool.

            Still neck and neck at 19k, but the Remington goes off today while the XM-3 has another week!

              One day left and holding just under 20k.

              It was cool just to see these things.
