I have been out of the loop for a while. Been busy making rifles, coming up with new stuff and working my butt off as a new Board Member of the FCSA.

If you have been to my site lately, ferret50.com (http://www.ferret50.com), you have seen the growing number of trophy winners listed on the front page. We claim top accuracy from our rifles, and the winners are proof of it. I do understand that most people want to shoot for fun and are not looking to compete. Its just not as fun if the bullets donít go where you want them. So we make every rifle as if it were going to show up at a 1000yd match.

You guys are FCSA (http://www.fcsa.org) members, right! The FCSA is a good organization and just so happens to be on the front line of the 2nd amendment fight along with the FCI and NRA. As I type this, the elections are happening. Who knows what we will be left with in the House and Senate, and I donít even want to think about two years from now. We all know that when the Dems have control, they will be coming for our guns. The 50 is a target and they want to stop further sales of these rifles.

If you have been keeping an eye on the Ferret50 for the past five years, you have seen that we make little changes here and there. In the pic below you can see that we have switched to a black oxide finish and improved the bipod. There are several other things that we have improved, but itís a matter of a thousandth here or there. We still make the best monopod in the business.

I will be nudging my prices up in Jan, itís the first increase in three years. So I wanted to touch base with you guys before I did that. I have a production run finishing and can ship you a rifle or upper before years end. As always, FCSA members, LEO and Military personal get a discount.

Safe shooting,
Dave Moore (aka Team Ferret)

How much more height does the new bipod offer over the original one?

How much for just the new bipod and could I call and order one by phone?

The new bipod is about 1.5" higher. I do make longer upper legs for the new bipod and have set on the shelf that are 3" longer.

Give me a call anytime.

Damn hopefully I'll have the money from my parents house in a couple weeks before the price increase.

Dave, we do not allow marketing on the open forums, so I will move this to the for sale forum for you. I appreciate your company and what it stands for! Anyone would be proud to own one of your products.

It would be unfair to our other vendors to leave this in an open forum. I hope you understand. PM me if you have any questions.

Thread closed; one must have more than 25 posts before posting new thread in For Sale.

If you want to PM Kestryll about it, he may be happy to give you an exemption, in which case I'll happily unlock your thread.

I have made an exception to the rule this time, as not only is it time sensitive, but I believe Ferret is on our side. They have made 50 caliber rifles available to us again. Thank you Grammaton for catching my mistake.:D

So we can buy these? I have a lonely stripped lower that might like one of those Farret uppers. But what about the magwell? Do I get it sealed, or fix a mag in place for jokes?

There's a thread about a group buy for .510 DTC for CA.
They need a few more people to make it worthwile to order.
The FCSA magazine had some articles on the .510DTC about
a year ago.
