Do you want one as a collectable military weapon? Or because of it's accuracy?

I don't know anything about the m24. I had to read the links to see what it was. But how does it differ from a standard model 700 in .308 with a match barrel and externally adjustable trigger?

I think I'd rather have something like this, but to each their own.

They are just Remington custom shop built 700s. The original barrels for M-24s were outsourced, but I think they are all in house now.

Other than nostalgia purposes, what would be the reason for owning such a rifle? Long action, 308, bdl style floor plate, hs precision stock. None of those things seem to add up to an efficient rifle.

On the other hand, who am I to judge? Buy the GAP, and shoot the heck out of it.

The 5R is basically the civilian equivalent. I have one, shoots lights out with a jewell trigger.

Chris Kyle used a 300 Win Mag for most of his kills. He also used a McMillan TAC 338 Lapua on his last tour.

I think there's a good chance he used a M110 more if he was in urban environments a lot. I don't know when he deployed though. I think those were issued starting in 2008.

I can't think of any, but I have a lot of firearms that I own that are purely based on nostalgia.
