You guys LOVE the AR-15, we've established that. The ergonomics., etc., does anyone have one of those world champ David Tubb designed TUBB 2000 rifles which uses a bolt action in the body of an AR design?

I find the idea of a super accurate, totally LEGAL rifle that feels like an AR but is match accurate kind of appealing.

I don't think my pocket book could afford anything like this.

If your goal is to have a super-accurate fully legal bolt rifle that feels like an AR, get a 700 and drop it in a MAK. Save some cash.

"drop it in" is a understatement. i looked at the installation instructions and said "no thanks!" you have to have some experience with bedding and be real good at it too!

I should say, have a smith drop it in. Randy uses the 360 degree recoil lug on it and makes it a switch barrel.

Either Tubb or tube, sounds like a cool deal!

Those things look like something from Star Wars or Star Trek.

I'd love to make one of these in 308 with the Magpul sniper buttstock...

MAK takes AI magazines -- Bolt action -- try and ban THAT California!

Or, opt for the Made in California tube gun kit for either Remington 700's or the Barnard: http://www.competitionshootingstuff.com/index.html

I've had the pleasure of shooting a TUBB - and I do mean pleasure - the fit and feel was out of this world - just not to sure if the tactical model would actually stand up to my "300lb gorilla" abuse

That one's nice, and the route I'd go if i wanted a tube and a 6br repeater, but I got a bunch of AICS mags that need usin'!:D I think the biggest draw to the eliseo r5 is that it reliably feeds 6br.

The Eliseo R5 Repeater Kit is probably the best way to go. About half the price of the Tubb 2000. Many of the SoCal HP Match Rifle shooters are apparently buying the R5 from Gary Eliseo and having Doan Trevor do the barrel work.

If you want to talk to Gary Eliseo in person, he tends to shoot the Mid-Range prone matches (3x600, 300/500/600) in the area (e.g. Santa Margarita Gun Club via Camp Pendleton, Burbank Rifle and Revolver Club via Castaic). Go to one of those monthly matches, and he'll probably be there. Or you can just call him up.

Rumor has it that Creedmoor Sports will be selling rifles built on the R5, but in 6.5 Creedmoor. That *is* a rumor though.

ALSO....... just for poops and grins... Tubb may shoot a Tubb rifle... but he sure as heck doesn't use the same barrels that are used on the production rifles.....

For the money you might look at this too.

I like that RT-10 Tactical a lot. I've been toying around with the idea of building a bolt action tube gun using AR-10 parts. The AR rifles are basically tube guns anyway. Run a bolt handle out of the left side of the receiver, and it would be an extremely fast straight pull action. Build the magwell to accept HK-91 mags, much cheaper than either DPMS or AR-10. One of these days I'll get around to it..... :rolleyes:
