Mixflip post this on YouTube. 

It's a Model 99 in 416barrett (although they mis-identify it as 50 cal).

Just picked up my third bullpup (my first love being the Tavor, sloppy seconds a CQC AUG), low and behold it's a 50! Went shooting with some buddies a couple of weeks ago and one of them brought out his M99, two weeks later it's mine! Got some ammo and a Nightforce on order. Anyone interested in a Swarovski Barrett Habicht Christmas Tree DeCaf Soy Latte 10 Power Scope?

So after about a year of owning my M99 and changing out the scope to the above configuration I finally got the opportunity to take it out and sight it in (brother in law was on vacation from Suisse and took him out to the range/desert).

HOT DAMN! That's one fun rifle to shoot, once sighted in it was shooting sub MOA groups at a 100 meters. BOL nailed a Coke can at 230-250ish first shot. Will post some pics of the sighting in target later. Another buddies son's first shot was less than .75" high and .75" to the right of his POA.

Scope has 25MIL adjustment from zero so I'm good out to 1500 meters, then have to hold over. Hopefully I'll get to a 1000 meter range soon and be able to stretch it's legs.

Here are the sighting in groups from last Sunday.

4.1" First group after a basic zero was a little spread out as I got used to the trigger (and recoil).
1.6" Next group started to show the potential but I pulled the last shot.
0.8" Last group was sweetness.

This is off the integral bipod on the front and monopod on the back. I think it will get better if I sandbag it.

Looks like long range is in my future!

So took it out again yesterday with some friends, scope kiss split one of the shooters head open right above her eyebrow. I did warn her that she was too close to the scope, maybe next time she'll listen (if there is a next time).
Did I mention this is a fun rifle to shoot?
