    Not real computer savy or I would have,that is why I said to email for pics if you are a serious buyer.If not you can go to EDM Arms website and see the same thing that I did when I placed my order.I really encourage anybody that is interested to go to their website in order to realize they are saving $600 plus and they can have it now not 30 something weeks down the road IF you pay in FULL up front.Just FYI I was told 12-14 weeks and received it 26 weeks later and it was paid in full the day I ordered.

    Not flaming EDM in any way as they build fine rifles.

    Most of the members here either have or are interested in building a custom rifle on the .408 case. They use a custom action, match grade barrel, custom stock, and all the pieces in between.
    These rifles can be built for way less than the EDM, and are most likely more accurate.

    Well after several years of hands on field use in some of the most God forsaken enviroments I have no complaints all things considered.Can you build one cheaper?Absolutely.Can you build a more accurate replacement?Definately.Are these other cheaper built more accurate guns readily in production?Probably Not.Are they readily broke down for ease of carry and concealment?Doubtful but Maybe.EDM's cost almost half as much as one of Cheytac's own version to boot.Kind of like the old saying,There's an A$$ for every seat but each one is different.Make no mistake I appreciate and Respect your opinion,just trying to help out a buddy that needs to move it due to unforseen circumstances that arose after he ordered it.Can't wait for some down time to build a custom Titanium takedown with a Carbon fiber barrel an intergrated suppressor.That way I can carry more ammo.Pretty cool huh?

    No offense taken, I was just trying to give you some insight as to why there wasn't much interest.
    I'm sure your friend appreciates your help, perhaps he can carry some ammo when you get yours built...
