Robar makes a very nice tactical rifle. They guarantee .5 MOA and thats right about where they shoot. They are built on the rem 700 action and overall make a very nice package.

If I wanted to buy a tactical rifle, I doubt it would be from Robar, for the price they want, you should be getting all of thier "Extras" for free, Polymax, trigger, etc.

You could buy a couple SC1's for the same price. And same gurantee.

I fully agree with Subthermal. For their price you can build one fine rifle, and have a MUCH better stock. The 1/2 MOA guarantee is pretty easy to accomplish.

Well... thanks for the comments....I should have come here first.....I have one on order which should be finished in four weeks. With all I had read the Robar seemed like a good choice. After I ordered (and payed for it) , I saw Mel's Bravo 51 and suspected I may have been a bit too quick......ces't la vie!

My last entry here (above) was back in June 04, I now have my Robar SR-60 and am getting aquainted with it.
I have run it in and roughly zeroed the scope ( needs a little tweeking)

I ran it in with Ausralian F4 ball and have today put some Lapua 185 grain through it.

My last five rounds were shot at 360 metres and three of the strikes were "clover-leafed" the other two were two inches to the right.

Now to say I'm happy is a bit of an understatement as the Lapua 185 grainers I was useing are not what this rifle is ment to like......it's ment to like 168 grain FGMM which happens to retail in NZ for $70 per box of 20 (approximately $49 US)
My plan is to collect the Lapua brass and work up hand loads with 168 grn projectiles and find the optimum.

Flea was correct earlier.....I AM very happy and it does seem to be "one heck of a good rifle"........I am looking forward to doing it justice..... :D
