Not for the price. For that coin, I'd rather have a PBR from FN.

EDIT: Case in point - http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id/58123

Give me a dollar.

I read that article in American Rifleman and was pretty impressed with the performance, but that kind of rifle doesnt really appeal to me. For long range accuracy I really am a bolt action kind of guy.

So do I think its a neat gun?
Yep.
Would I buy one?
Sure If I had oodles of money and a need for such a thing.

I've been floating that line for awhile of wether to get the pbr or the fnar. The last article I read reported the fnar shooting a five shot group that measured .45 inches, and thats well into bolt action accuracy territory.
