I sat on this link long enough for everyone else to have already covered it, but, hey, I need something else to write about today.
I have never really seen the need to add a .50 BMG rifle to my armory – the rifles themselves cost a bleeding fortune and weigh a metric ton, the ammunition is absurdly expensive, and aside from causing anti-rights cultists to involuntarily lose bladder control, I would have no real use for one.
That said, I want a GM6 Lynx. Badly.
28 inch barrel in a 44 inch overall package (compressible to 36″ for traveling purposes), long recoil action (which is not a concept I will claim to understand, but apparently does interesting things for recoil), five-round capacity, bullpup style, and supposedly able to plug a one-meter-square target at 1500 meters. Yeah, I could work with that.
And, really, with what other .50BMG rifle can you honestly expect to pull off this:
Granted, all of the guys in the demonstration videos are a bit on the hefty side, but that recoiling barrel gives you the opportunity to mitigate the impulse over one hell of a distance, and with one hell of a counterweight.
Unfortunately, Sero does not have a commercial presence here in the States yet, which means importation of this particular beast would be difficult, but something tells me that they would not have a hard time engaging in a rather brisk business with the right kinds of people…
