  • Maj Culver on sniping

    Unsure if this has been posted before, id be surprised if it hasnt, but some great history and a familiar picture of an M40A1 that looks to be sporting a T10 Weaver.....

    "...But they would never find anything to beat the old Springfield ...the long sleek streamline, very slim but with potent bulges, all in the just exactly right places to give it that pugnaciously forward-leaning, eager look that marked the Springfield. Beside it, the M1 looked like a fat old man puffing with a lack of training...the two most beautiful things made in America were the ax-handle and the clipper ship? ...they should have added one more thing: The Springfield '03 rifle..."

          Very interesting the see that the Canadian Snipers and the USMC Snipers helped each other out. It makes a lot of sense now though with the Canadian C3 Sniper Rifle. Looking at them, it's easy to see how the USMC had a hand in their development. Heck, we even used the same MST-100 scopes.

            Here is a Canadian C3A1 rifle that is missing the MST-100 scope and instead has a Weaver T10 mounted on it.

                That scope has been messed with at some point, the detent in the front bell should be on the bottom on original Unertl that was not modified by USO. Im sure its probably fine operationally just saying though.

              This is not a C3A1, that is closer to the C3, the C3 rifles did not have Weaver scopes, they had 6X Kahles scopes. This is a Parker Hale 1200TX but it does have the C3A1 magazine that was specific to the C3A1 and would fit in the 1200/1200TX detachable magazine set up.

              The C3A1 was based on a completely different action, the Parker Hale M87 and it had a proprietary scope base and rings, similar to the M40A1 for the 10X Unertl.

                Yes I should have clarified, that isn't a real C3A1. It was cloned to be a transition model. There were a few C3 rifles that were given the magazine conversions as well as the Unertl 10x scopes but before the Mcmillan stocks came along. They were called C3A1. As for the rifle, the receiver is a 1200TX, the stock, barrel, bipod, etc are real. The scope bases/rings/weaver are of course nothing from a C3/C3A1.

                The C3A1 also used a Mcmillan A2 in an OD and Grey marble finish, and the C3 Unertl 10x elevation BDC was cammed in meters for the Norma Match ammunition used, with an 800m max setting.

                Correction on the ammunition - IVI Match not Norma
