This rifle looks pretty interesting, I just want you guy's opinions on it and how you think it would cost to build. I think it's a brilliant build/idea, here's the video of it in action.

I think that would probably cost exactly the same as a Del-Ton or DPMS kit.

I've never seen one dolled up like that before. Let's put it this way, I doubt it's a few hundred bucks. There's some cash involved in that build. How much, I am not sure without looking it up and checking prices. It's unique for sure.

it would appear he has taken a russian m44 and put on a folding stock and a scope.
if u do this in CA u will be thrown under the bus, see assault weapon penal code. title 11 CA code of regs sect 971-972.3.
the m44 is a fantastic weapon mostly used to shoot deserters on the russian front. fits nicely in the seat of the truck. u dont need a scope for that. the iron sights on it are dead on, 1st time up every shot in the center. the rounds are so strong most ranges wont even let u use it.
another unsung genius invention of the russians.

It looks like the barrel has been chopped and a flash hider or muzzle break has been added. The pistol grip in the back was too. That scope is a tactical front mount. It looks like maybe even a rail has been added someway. There's some money invested in that build.

The guy in the video is "kinda" a gunsmith. He's got a lot of videos up on the Tube. When I first watched some of his videos I thought he was just an Uncle Earl redneck type at first. The more I see of his stuff, I'm starting to not think so anymore. He does have some knowledge and skill under his belt. His projects are a little odd or different but he always seems to get the job done. I'm starting to like this guy! He's very clever and out of the ordinary. He Jerryrigs a lot of his gunsmithing shop and tools out of nearly garage junk as well.

I hate that word 'tactical' but for any tactical (read combat) use, I think a semi-auto would be much prefered over a bolt action. MW defines tactic as 'planning or maneuvering to accomplish a purpose.' So tactics lie in the brain, or maybe in a training manual--not in the gun itself.

Dont get me wrong, I am sure the guy is good at what he does. My point was why?

The dudes I knew who modified their pintos did a great job. But in the end it was still a pinto that went faster.
