Originally, I was just going to cut open a DML 50. cal sniper rifle and glue a DID brass 50 cal round to the bolt. So that when I pull the bolt handle back, the receiver will not be empty, and a round will be sitting inside the receiver nice and happy. After I disassembled the rifle. I decided to make this a single shot, bolt action. So I started to cut here and cut there. Drill here, and drill there. Glue this, and glue that. Next thing I know. I ended up with a whole new bolt and receiver. At that point. I'm thinking, WTH. I don't want the norms anyway. So I junk the DML and built a new one from scratch and parts.

I kept the original DML 50 cal mag, lower receiver , butt stock and barrel. With the barrel, I off the front half of the flash hider, and glued a muzzle from a WW2 German anti-tank rifle. I thought that made the rifle looks more fear. Front half of the lower body and bipod base came from Accuracy International sniper rifle L96A1. Pistol grip from PSG-1. Scope, laser aim pointer, top rail and flip-up sights from DML. Stock support top half came from Police knife stick. Bottom half from WW2 German paratroops FG42 rifle flash hider. Both DML. Now that I'm done. I think maybe I should to go back and rework the stock support to make it foldable for transport.

I don't know, maybe because of the size, I guess. This one took a little more work then all my M4 and M14 mod. You can see all that in my website www.goodduck.net

So, now. I need to bash a figure for this gun. Hope you all enjoy this built.

Wow, great work Good Duck, its a beauty of a rifle. I'm unfamiliar with .50 caliber rifles aside from the barrett series, is yours based off of a 1:1? It looks quite familiar but I can't put my finger on it. Thanks for the breakdown as well, nice resourcefulness to find parts, its almost something I could do. :p
