Thank you sir. From what I have learned both versions are equally as reliable. You will be very happy with the Tac50. It is honestly my favorite 50 BMG made. It's recoil is not very bad at all. Have you given much thought to the glass you are going to put on it? The one I shot had a USO SN-3 5-25 on it and it just made the rifle shine that much more. As far as the 50's go, the best glass I have found are the S&B's,USO's, Leupold Mk4's and the Bushnell Elite Tactical's. all of these stand the "two stage" recoil of a 50.
You know you are going to have to post a picture or two so I can drool.. Enjoy that 50.
