The barreled receiver most likely came from the US Military. And they were likely trying another configuration.

Default 1903a4 Heavy Barrel

I was lucky to get this one (aren't we all). I would love to know more about it so it could be put together in perfect form. Any help would be appreciated. Could this be used in the CMP Sniper matches as this came from the CMP?

I'm certain that rifle would violate the "Intent and Spirit" guideline in the rule book, considering heavy barreled A4s weren't "as-issued"; especially not in .308. They may have been an obscure US Army experiment, but it was not the issued condition of the rifle.

That said, I'd love to see pictures of it. Sounds very interesting.
