I've owned this rifle for 20 years and was interested if any of the forum members had come across one. It's a distributor's exclusive from Banger's, in Birmingham, AL. I'm not sure how many were made but it was a limited number. It has a 20" fluted stainless steel bull barrel on a pillar bedded synthetic stock. It also came in .223. Right out of the box, it was a tack driver. A sales rep, for Banger's, said they were intended to be sold to police departments, as sniper rifles. I had read, around that time, that some departments were taking heavy barreled Remington 700s and Winchester Mod. 70s, having the barrels cut back to 20 inches and putting them on McMillian stocks, so they were easier to maneuver in urban environments. A few years after I bought the rifle, I noticed that similar rifles were becoming stock items for Remington, Savage, FN, etc.
