    Have any other photos of the SAR8? How's the accuracy of it? Does it already have the weaver rail on the top? Bipod lug?

    Kind of interested...


    Edit: I guess I should say "generally, how is the accuracy of it as compared to the SAR-8 HBCS (heavy barrel counter-sniper)?"

    As i said, i've never fired it, but by all accounts i've heard, it's accuracy is excellent for a battle rifle. It IS, after all, an H&K, save for the Springfield lower. ;)

    While perhaps not up to par with the PSG-1 derived HBCS, it is my understanding that with a good 6x or 10x scope, it would serve admirably in the role of sustained medium range precision fire out to 600yrds or so. This is what i bought it for, but i've decided i want to reach all my goals for my short range AR-15 system before moving up. (Yes, btw, the PSG did in turn come from the same G3 rifle as the SAR8, but i'd say the changes were enough to make it a unique system)

    It does have a Weaver rail attached from the factory, i don't have any rings or optics for it.

    i'll get some more pics up within an hour or two.

    PICS!!! :mad: :p

    Funny, I've been thinking about a good AR-15 based close to low mid-range rifle...I was contemplating one of the "flat top" ar-15's from Bushmaster, but their lack of prices on the websites haven't been encouraging. I've also considered the USC with a shortened barrel and a good 1-4x red dot scope coupled with a good light unit, however I don't think that the ATF would appreciate me doing that :o

    i took six more pics of the SAR8 for ya, tried to get some details you asked about. They're between 125-200k though, shoot me an email address i can mail them to you at. The OT price is $1100 plus $15 shipping. :wiggle: To someone from the site here, i'll take a little bit of a loss.

    :big grin: Don't let that Bushmaster page fool you, they're very reasonable. Mine is the Shorty AK A3 (A3= flattop) variant. It came to about $815 with my state's 6% tax included. Saved about $100 since i ordered it without the handle, which would end up in a drawer anyway. My local dealer didn't have it in stock and it wasn't on his computer of available models, but a check on the website and a call to his distributor comfirmed it could be ordered. You can see the newest addition, a GG&G MAD rear sight here. And below was a tricky shot of the sight picture, through the MAD sight and the Reflex.
