If you could build a dream rifle, what would it be?

Mine would be based on a Remington 40-x action, jewell trigger group set at 1.5 pounds, tactical knob on the bolt handle. This would be sitting in a McMillan A5 stock, with adjustable cheekpiece, textured grip surfaces, jet black. The barrel would be a Shilen Heavy Bull barrel, 416 stainless, 26 inches long. Chambered in match grade .308, 1in 9 twist. All steel surfaces would be matte teflon coated. Sitting on top of it would be a Nightforce 5.5-22 x 56 NXS scope NP-R1 reticle in Nightforce rings and one piece steel base. On the front of the stock would be a swivel stud for a sling, along with another stud with a Harris bipod attatched.

That would be my rifle. :gun:

My dream is to have and shoot a Lahti or Solothurn. I have original advertisements for these rifles for sale to civilians which date back to just after WW-II.

Now, if Mr. Hammer will see fit to guide me through my stupidity at not being able to handle posting a pic, I will show these ads.

These rifles were on the order of 20mm hand-held cannons.
