    They garentee a 1 MOA 5 shot group... nothing impressive. Its a "cheap" copy of the M-40A3... not only how it looks but how it is built. Doesnt mean its not a good rifle... but it doesnt impress me any. And with how much they charge for those things... they should be imprisoned for robbery. Id much rather buy an SC rifle with a .5 MOA garentee. My 2 cents... maybe a few more.

    $649 NIB is not to bad.................How does it hold up to a LTR or 700P?

    this is all I can find
    Specifications:

    Caliber: .308 Win (7.62x51mm NATO)
    Weight: 9.0lbs (empty)
    Length: 38" overall length (with 18" barrel)
    Action Type: Bolt
    Magazine Capacity: 4 round
    Rail: Two piece Mil Spec M1913 rail
    Stock: Specially designed FN/Hogue
    Bedding: Aluminum pillar full-length bedding to block

    Thanks for the accuracy info..............do they shoot better than 1moa? Are parts easy to get? How hard is a trigger job? I know not one thing about a FN bolt gun.....

    AH... looks like im mistaken... i was thinking of a different rifle. The prices im finding for the FN PBR (the one your talking about) are as follows..

    http://www.csmetall-werkes.com/tactical.htm $600 (this is an FFL price)

    http://www.greensupply.com/sale/fn3.pdf 895.00

    http://www.cmmginc.com/inventory_a/AR_R ... s_tbl.html $849.95 (scroll about 3/4 the way down)

    Personally... id rather get either an Rem LTR or a even a Howa 1500 varminter.

    already have a LTR Just hard to pass up a good deal. So what is the accuracy of this rifle on average (I know what the factory says)?

    I can not find one review on it :?

    What about the 1:12 4 grove barrel?

    I may see about sending it out for a review, if I buy it. :wink:

    What worries me is the "med heavy" barrel, how lite is it? How will it work as it heats up? Shows to be about 9lbs.................still no luck on finding review................. :?
