Tubb's 2000T

I haven't had such a feeling of unadulterated visceral lust in years

Steve Malloy's June 2002 article & review on this David Tubb/Rock McMillan collaborative rifle was superlative.

Oh my!

After flipping through the pages, I zoomed in on Clint Smith's article on vintage sniper rifles. His observation that lessons were forgotten has been oft repeated (hey, we forgot after WWI, WWI, Korea and for a while after 'Nam) and that we send our snipers out with inadequate equipment (true in WW I and WW II) holds true.

There was one slight error in the identifying of the Lyman Alaskan (or M81/M82) as a Weaver 330C (M73B1).

I want the Tubb.

I'm curious though, and the article doesn't say, but the rifle accepts 20 round mags? Are they M14 magazines?

That rifle was just bad. For that rifle, I'd get a membership at ORSA and become a complete range bum.

I've wanted one since Gale McMillan showed it to me at Shot 2000. Thats the only rifle that I still CLEARLY remember.

That puppy printed some pretty impressive 10 shot groups.
Oh my!
