    Well I added a M24 SWS to the family today. I know...I know... I could have built a better shooting rifle for far less money.

    I bit on Remingtons M24 rebuild program and after 5 months waiting it arrived today.

    So what do you gents think, should I shoot it or keep it as a collectable?

    Nice rifle, congrats!

    Shoot it IMO. I don't want any firearms I can't shoot myself.

    Been nice if the military and Remington would have left them in their original condition, in my opinion. Would have been worth more to me for its nostalgic value anyway.

    Shoot the gun!!

    What is the point in buying to be a safe queen?

    It won't be happy unless it's being used for what it was made! Shoot it and enjoy!

    Been thinking about the "Not Shooting" thing. I have a project on that we have been building as a commemorative rifle. A very close friend who was a USMC scout sniper that was killed. Anyway his son, out of respect and honor for his father joined the Marines and is now in MARSOC. Well, to make a long story short, we have been building a M40A3 like his dad shot and have for the last couple years been trying to find someone who is willing to do a custom air brush job on the stock.

    Not sure if this is something that you maybe interested in but here is a website of a group of guys that we are going with.

    What ever you do, have fun. That is a very special rifle, regardless.

    Seems your one of the first ones to take delivery, congrats!
    My general concern with the M24R is that the main parts (receiver/barrel/trigger) have all been replaced with new. Still great parts, but from a collectible side does that hurt the value and desire people will have for it?

    What kind of engravings do the action and barrel have? Which scope is that? What other accessories did it come with?
    Would love to see more detailed photos.

    Found out about the M24R deal a little bit ago but haven't seen solid details on it. A lot of $ for me to spend on uncertainty. .

    It is engraved with Remington M24 on action, 7.62 NATO on barrel. I believe it was only the 34th one they completed. The deployment kit had replacement lens covers, spair bolt / firing pin / spring and numerous other parts. The scope is the original Leupold scope for the M24. Cases are marked M24 Sniper Weapon System.

    Since I submitted my M24R packet I've been watching this thread for updates from anyone else. I finally received my M24R SWS this weekend after 6-months of waiting. No notifications, just a credit card charge and a call from my FFL. Awesome looking gun. Stock, scope, bipod, and case are all original with camo paint, wear/tear marks, and arms room butt number markings. There is even some old 100mph tape left on the stock.
