Friday Update – 8 May 2015

Welcome to another Sniper Central Friday update! The whole purpose of these updates is to keep everyone up to date with what is happening at Sniper Central and, of course, to display a random rifle picture! First, what has been going on? Well, as you have noticed we finished up the review on the Superior Lens rifle scope. It is a Chinese made scope and it did pretty good for a Chinese made scope, then it was discovered the adjustments sizes were off. We have some additional scope reviews coming up soon. First up is a Burris XTR II which looks promising and then we have a few more on… Read more »

Friday Update – 17 Apr 2015

Well, it is another Friday and time for another update to what is happening around Sniper Central! The big news announced last Friday was that we have acquired Northwest Defense and will be incorporating NWD into our training and developing their class offerings to include many new and exciting things beyond our Precision Marksman classes. Of course, that has been taking some time to get the business side of that done. We continue to work toward opening our physical Sniper Central HQ facility this fall so that people can come and visit and see some cool stuff. All the BATF paperwork has been submitted for a new FFL for that… Read more »

Friday Update: 20 Mar 2015

Hello everyone! Welcome back to another friday update! This gives us an opportunity to let the community know what we are working on and what is coming up in the near future. We posted a book review this week on the book “Shooter” and it must be time to start the next Sniping related book. I have a couple of options and will pick something soon. Maybe a “how to” type of book is next up. The review on the Superior Optics scope continues and we’ll have that wrapped up in a few weeks. We’ll be starting on a new rifle review very soon after that as well. Next week… Read more »

Friday Update – 13 Feb 2015

Welcome to another edition of the friday update at Sniper Central! As you probably have noticed, we finished up our review of the Nightforce NXS 2.5-10x42mm Compact. Its a nice scope package.

Things are progressing on the Sniper Central HQ, our physical location to be opened in August of this year. Its a slow process, but it still progresses. Building up inventory, figuring out displays and more importantly, how to make it a destination… Read more »

Compact SASS in proposed Army budget

We have talked about the request for proposal from the US Army for a compact version of the M110 SASS, known as the CSASS. There was no budget allocated to the project in 2015 but the Army is requesting $2 million in 2016 to get the project moving. They indicate plans to purchase 3600 of the sniper weapon systems. The system sounds as if it is intended to replace the existing M110, but it is hard to tell for sure. Its specified to be more compact, more accurate, have better optics, and reliability, etc. I am a proponent of fielding the CSASS in conjunction with the traditional M24 bolt gun,… Read more »
