Show Show: SIG SAUER SIG50 = New McMillan TAC-50

“We needed an anti-material rifle for international customers.” How Tony Stark does that sound? Of course, the real world of military sales is not all Iron Man suits and Gwyneth Paltrow. It’s about negotiating a bureaucratic labyrinth with so many moving parts it makes a Patek Phillippe Grand Complication look like a Swatch. Or making a McMillan TAC-50 look like a SIG50. Dave Grimshaw was the man who made that happen; he’s surprisingly candid about the rifle’s genesis. Still, it’s who you know, not what you clone. Or commission. To be fair, no wheel was reinvented for the same old reason: no need. If you want to reach out and touch someone at 2000+ meters, this one will get ‘er done. Click here for the stats. And make the jump for a snap of the new “prototype” SSG 3000 with a spec-ops-friendly modular chassis. You know, as you’re already here . . .

    Just what I always wanted: a $9,000 rifle that can shoot international customers.

    That answers my question about optics on a .50 cal sniper rifle. SB 12.5 x 50 x 56: $3150.00 at Optics Planet.

    The chassis system on the center rifle in the second picture has to be one of the most novel and inventive uses of adjustment and rail spaces I have yet to see on the Blaser. Several notable foreign Operational Forces make use of that rifle particularly the Australian SASR, optimizing that action into this century with a stock that accepts VAS and different lasers is outstanding. The work does not look common to Sig and I speculate as to where it was acquired. Thank you for the update!

    The stock you are refering to was amde by Spec Ops 2 in New Jersey, Mark is very creative and does work for HK, SIG,S&B,USO and the like.
