Will one of the US makers ever make a tube gun?
« on: February 22, 2008, 11:55:32 PM »
 With the growing popularity and acceptance of the AR-15 and its ergonomics will any of the US makers ever mass make tube bolt guns.It makes a lot of sense with the success of the Tubb 2000 and the knockoffs that eventually someone may give it a try. There is no reason why bolt rifles shouldn't be just as modular as AR's, without having to resort to spending $2500+ on a Blaser R-93. This would seem to be a no brainer especially in regards to target/tactical rifles where stocks that are easily and readily adapted are good things. Also the quick change capability of barrels from various calibers using the same high quality scope is a lot easier today with scopes that have the ability to have multiple zeros(although Kahles stopped making theirs(?), Burris still does)or just using a normal scope and just recording where the clicks are. Surely gun makers can see the profit potential from offering guns that have the various options like the AR's(multiple barrels, triggers, stocks, float tubes, etc) .

Lego bolt guns? Why not multiple scopes for multiple applications ? I can tell you why it won't happen, Then you would have 1 rifle that you could customize to the shooting situation, as it is now if you have 2 separate requirements you have to buy 2 rifles. It's mathematics  $x1<$x2
