M24 Commemorative Rifle, 1 of 500

According to the Remington Defense website link to the europtic website, 500 special edition M24 rifles will be available for civilian purchase.

The rifles were built to commemorate the founding of the US Army Sniper School and Army Sniper Association in 1987.

$2900? They are out of their fucking minds, unless that is for the entire SWS (M3A, Coffin Hardcase and all contents of the SWS).

No way in hell I would pay that for just the rifle. They aren't bad for a production gun, but overall they are a very mediocre rifle compared to what I can build for $3K.

I guess if it's worth $3K for you to be able to say you own one of the 500.....Not me.

Yeah, when I built my rifle I did it for a good bit less than that. I don't see me dropping 3k in one anyway since I tell everybody I meet I was a cook anyway.

Still shooting an out of the box Remington 700 Varmint synthetic, that I bought in 1994 for $500 bucks and will drive tacks, with no mods, for 26 years now.

Shot the USMC Scout Sniper qual course (out to a 1000) with it, many times and it always shot near perfect scores. I don't get the need for 2,3,4000 dollar guns nowadays.

I have a high end 300wm, probably 3-$4,000 gun that shoots great, but I didn't pay for it Id'e probably sell it if someone wanted it.

Those Varmint Synthetics were what I used to always recommend to guys to buy. For the money you couldn't beat them.

Remington Varmint Synthetic, the Winchester Stealth and the FN Police Special were all heavily over performing rifles back in the 90's and early 2000's.

Now, I wouldn't buy a Cerbero-Remington if you spotted me half the price. S/F....Ken M

I have also seen several out of the box Savage 110s that would outshoot the average M24.

Those Sendero's they used to make were good rifles also.

I guess this would be neat if you were a collector, but from a rifle standpoint it's no kind of deal.

Nope, it comes with a $32.00 Plano ProMax PillarLock Scoped rifle hard case, no scope, no bipod, no iron sights.

And just for the record, SOTIC was graduating snipers in 1985.

Ayep.

The are still what I recommend to beginners. As a bonus it leaves a bunch of $$$ for decent glass.

As for the commemorative? For 1K to 1200? Sure.

3K? What drugs are they on?

I wouldn't mind having a nice 21 to tear apart and play around with.

My first issue rifle was a 21 with an ART 2. I was never a huge fan, but there is the nostalgia factor there.

After seeing some comments on the civvie versions, I am a little surprised to see this, in a good way.

Educate please: what is it about the M21 and ART 2 you have a story to tell about?

Simple version: An accurized M14 (AKA an M-21) is a work of art done by an artist. An accurized AR is take this piece off and stick that piece on. Any dumbass can build an accurate AR.

They had a program going selling old-service M24s to different tiers of the military service.

“B4” Classified guys getting the first pick and it went down from there. I love the M24, and there’s nothing wrong with a .308, but not for that kinda cash.

And I agree, the M14 rocks.
