Default Mann Device

Hope this is the correct sub-forum to ask.

What exactly is the MANN ACCURACY DEVICE and what is it used for?

I've looked it up on the internet and I didn't find much info. Other than the collectable aspect is there a use for them? Conversion to a shooter maybe?

They were used to test ammo lots for accuracy. I don't know a lot of the details but this info might help you broaden your search. Good luck.

The CMP sold a bunch of them a few years ago and I know of at least one who made it into a shooter.

Actually maybe I should have said consistency. I heard the story while in the SS last month. Some guys have turned them into bench shooters.

As I understand it they were used for lat acceptance testing for various calibers.

The ones the CMP now have are 7.62x51/.308 only.

They make a very nice, though heavy, rifle.

I put mine in a cut down M1903A3 stock, with an S&K no tap scope mount, and a high power scope. Shoots very well.

Others have done the same. Do a search on "Mann Rifle".

Technically it belongs in Bolt Action Rifles.
Here are two thread links still on this forum.

Do a search for 'MANN Accuracy Device' or 'MANN rifle' or just 'MANN' and you will find some more threads.
Most of the old threads were lost when the forum software was changed.
