Shooting my USMC 40-X
 
Since no one on the forum wanted to buy the rifle I decided to take it out to my farm this weekend for a work out. My bench and rest are definitely less than ideal but I slapped a 10 X Fecker scope on it and I think it shot pretty well at 50 yards. Guess I donít mind keeping it! https://imgur.com/a/hs0ER3G

One of these days I’ll get a USMC 40X

Nice looking rifle and scope. I'd love to have both.

How did you shoot it; prone, bench or...? What conditions? Wind, etc.

Nice rifle and good groups. What year was your rifle made? Great scope too.

Having a 40X to shoot effects your whole rifle owning/shooting scheme. Every time I see some new model of rifle that claims to be the greatest I say that looks interesting then I say what would I do with that, I have a 40X. They are great to have around.

40x’s are pretty nice rifles. I have 2 as well. I’ve only shot 1 as the other I have (Navy SATU) trainer I have not.

I recently acquired a very nice commercial Win 52C and found a Canjar trigger for it on eBay. I want to put them through their paces and compare the accuracy of each.

Still looking for a trigger guard for mine; a 4-digit.
Has a pretty well figured stock for a Military rifle.
WMC.

I don't know for sure the years USMC 40Xs were made but every one I have seen was manufactured in 1958. I think the barrel codes were all the same. Please don't flame me if I'm wrong, just tell me politely. Wayne
