IT would be nice if it was 7.62x51, that way you could shot two shells instead of just 308.

The 700 is one of my favorites, it's also the basis for the M40A1 USMC sniper rifle that has been used for decades. The downside to the SPS is that the stock touches the barrel if you use a bipod or forearm rest. It's a quick fix by reinforcing it via. gunsmith or a kit. Now, for the ATR, the scope isn't bad but if you're trying to hit the 3 at over 800, I'd ditch the scope and get a really good one. But, out of the 2... I'm partial to the 700.

Hey just seeing if this would be a good starting gun for wanting to shoot long shots. I have been wanting a new rifle and seen this one and read one good review and it seems the PRO's aka the people who use rifles daily or HAVE ACTUALLY SHOT IT have liked it. Im really wondering how its going to stack up to the 700 sps tactical. Thats the other rifle I'm interested in, I mean as far as the rifle to scope. Is the scope ok for just shooting or some thing that needs to be put on ebay as soon as it comes in? Thanks for any HELP.

I bought my 100 ATR Sprecial Purpose (NighTrain) at the end of the summer, in .308 flavor the same model on their website now. Out of the box... it's a decent rifle. I've qualified expert on the Marine Corps KD Course quite a few times, so I know how to shoot. So far, the farthest range I've taken the ATR to is 500 yds. Once sighted in... I had NO problems drilling the 3in ring. I had pictures up but some yahoo kept calling them "fakes" so I'll take my video cam next time. The only problem I've had with it is feeding 180 grain rounds. The barrel gets hot and the exposed lead tends to melt and stick to the lip of the chamber. I don't like the stock, it doesn't feel good in my opinion and it doesn't have a reinforcement plate built into it. The trigger is fine and is adjustable (much like a Savage Arms rifle). And if you want to add an after market barrel, you can get on from Shilen. The scope is Barska's $100 Varmint scope and will be more than enough for hunting deer and other game in the mid-west. Make sure you read the manual so that you have your wind/elev adjustments memorized for different distances. I haven't been able to find a replacement stock for it yet, so if anyone knows where to find one or if you have any ?'s let me know. All-in-all if you're planning on hunting and miss your target when it's less than 300 yards with this rifle... I am willing to give shooting lessons for a small fee (case of beer and lunch).

I just got back from the range with my night train 2. If I do my part, I can shot 3 shot groups under 1" at 100yds all day long. At 200 yds, its still a tack driver. As a retired SWAT sniper, I wonder were all the "experts" get thier info saying this rifle is a pos.

No use putting quality glass on a cheap rifle. :)

What's with the huge muzzle brake on a .308 rifle? It looks like it belongs on a .50 BMG gun. I would guess this is a "tactical" rifle, but I would hate to lug it very far with that brake and the monster scope on top.
