Re: What are you shooting?
It was a brand new reciever and the serial number is recorded as a handgun. I know this topic has been discussed many times on this sight. Not really anything an XP can't do, I just didn't have an XP to go off of.
"What is it's purpose?" are you talking about the gun itself? If so, its purpose is so that I can put it in a backpack without a big barrel sticking out and catching on things, and run miles and miles way back into the backcountry, scale rock faces, and perch atop a high mountain ridge and still be able to take game at long range, if need be.
What doesn't look long enough? The reciever? Must just be the angle.
