From website: For those desiring the ultimate in long range (1000 yard plus) accuracy and precision, with extreme requirements for strength and durability, the Chandler Sniper M40 Long Range Precision Rifle is in a class with very few peers. Many rifles can hold one minute of Angle (MOA) accuracy at 100, 200, or 300 yards. The Chandler Sniper Rifle has been designed with the purpose of achieving that level of performance at distances out to 1000 yards, day after day, week after week, even under the most miserable and demanding field conditions. It is a hardened field rifle that will hold zero through the worst of any situation.
The recognized standard of performance in long range military sniper rifles was the USMC M40A1. All other rifles strive to meet its level of performance and ruggedness. The Chandler Sniper is a custom rifle built to exceed the USMC specifications. All Chandler rifles are made by select USMC RTE armorers who realize that only by paying attention to the smallest detail will their products perform as required.
Starting with a Remington 700 Action, the Chandler Sniper Rifle also incorporates a McMillan stock, Hart barrel, high quality Leupold tactical scope with Mil-dot reticle, Iron Brigade Armory one-piece scope mount, Badger Ordnance M5 steel one-piece steel trigger guard, and all required accessories. The Chandler Sniper Rifle is chambered as a standard in .308 Winchester for the Sierra 168 or 175 grain Matchking bullet. These rounds are available through Black Hills and Remington Arms Co. Other calibers are available such as 300 Win-Mag, 30-06, .223/5.56, 7x61 S&H, 6.5-.284, 7MM Rem Ultra Mag, .300 Rem Ultra Mag, .338 Rem Ultra Mag, .300 WSSM and .338 Lapua.

Delivery and Accuracy
All Chandler Sniper M40 rifles come assembled, test fired and zeroed for 100 yards. Given correct maintenance, ammunition and shooter's skill, these rifles will deliver consistent SUB-MOA groups out to 1000 yards. Note: Some calibers require handloaded ammunition for the best accuracy. While attempting to chamber all
calibers for a factory load, handloads will always perform the best. The .308 and .223
are the only exceptions to this rule.
Chandler Sniper Rifles are warranted for life with the following exceptions:
--Damages caused by line of duty or neglect
--Weapons/parts found unserviceable due to extended service life (i.e., barrels, finish, bedding, etc.)
Considering the above exceptions, Iron Brigade Armory will repair all original weapons at current actual cost. Unauthorized work performed on IBA Rifles may void the warranty.
too bad this quasi-M40A1 clone isn't topped with the Unertl 10X USMC Sniper or even the USO MST-100 day optic
also wish it had a more authentic M40A1 McMillan HTG stock rather than that with the adjustable cheekpiece and extra swivel stud, as well as Badger M5 bottom metal rather than a modified Winchester Model 70 steel floorplate
