.300 AAC “Blackout” Sniper Rifle

vt syria_057vt syria_061vt syria_059vt syria_056vt syria_058

This is a personal favorite.  I built this one around a barrel, .300 blackout, capable of handing sustained fire.  The NC Star scope is extremely bright, a bit heavy and balances out the weapon.  It’s 9x performance matches the “above 500 meter” hitting power of the blackout round.  This is a great target acquisition optic.  The look is clean, uncluttered, rail all the way to the threading.  With a soft ergo grip and capable of handing rapid fire with heavily loaded blackout ammo hour after hour, one might have been able to defend the Alamo single handed.

M4 “Super Carbine”

vt syria_066 vt syria_069 vt syria_067 vt syria_064 vt syria_068
We cloned the blackout above with some key exceptions.  We cut down barrel weight, going with a premium M4.  We went to .223, cutting ammo cost as well, picked up a premium stock and did everything right once again.  The NC Star tri-rail scopes mimic very high end combat optics and allow for rapid target acquisition.  In “black on black,” you have to admit, there is a certain brutal elegance to this.

.308/7.62NATO Precision Sniper Rifle

get-attachment vt syria_052 vt syria_050 vt syria_049
Jewel quality “first” barrel in full 24 inch allows this .308 to deliver full ballistic performance at ranges above 400 meters.  This converts quickly for use as a “field gun” as the barrel weight and design are suitable for both hunting and tactical use.  Priced out at less than “parts only wholesale,” consider this a Christmas/Chanukah gift.

Shipped optics will be better consumer grade scope or “superior” tactical ACOG/CQB. A target enthusiast would spend much more on a scope than the weapon itself. In this case, the weapons will be well worth the effort. All questions to go Mike Chester at Chet’s Firearms :  517 548 9558 or email:  [email protected] A Licensed Federal Firearms Dealer.

For those who follow this, the gun blog within VT,a few updates. We have a “build day” coming up this week. For those within Michigan/Ohio, we will be doing barrel and muzzle brake mods to .30/.223 weapons using CNC tooling. (cost is nominal) We will be testing out custom reloads including seeing what it takes to blow ourselves up. (as usual)

I include the video above for a variety of reasons. Jim Dean can explain it better, perhaps. If you don’t understand, then perhaps you don’t know what “walking the walk” really means to us. Anyone remember Richard Kiley? In 1965, this was a “hit single” on the rock charts. Do you want to ask why some of us seem to want “out of Dodge?”



Mosin Nagant Tactical Platform

1939 Mosin Nagant

Given a fine pre-war Mosin, I was hesitant to butcher this classic. Barrel is at original length, making this the closest approximation of a .338 Lapula or .300 Win mag. available. The powerful 54R cartridge, cheap enough to shoot all day, has exceptional range and power. Custom modifications, bent bolt and professional receiver scope mount are available. Optional optic is 50mm 6×24, though all but unaffordable optics suffer at above 15x. Eye relief on the current scope is exceptional, allowing straight bolt loading but bolt can be easily modified. When done professionally, the “handle kit” is more than adequate and rock solid with excellent fit and finish. Michael asked me to list this. It hasn’t been fired since it left the arsenal nor has it been zeroed. This is the nicest Nagant I have yet seen.

Yes, I have a carry handle on this.


1939 91/30 Mosin Nagant (finest ever made “cherry”)

Caliber: 7.62x54R (dirt cheap/available/devastatingly powerful)

Barrel Length: 28.5 inches, perfect bore

Stock: Archangel Tactical

Magazine: Included 5 round (10 round available)

Bolt: Straight, unmodified (modification available)

Rail/Mount: UTG Tri-Rail (original iron sight available for reinstallation)

Muzzle Brake: Mosin Plus

Optic: 2×7 Long Eye Relief (excellent “scout” scope)

Dragon Claw barrel mount bipod

SAW carry handle ($18)




 SCCY CPX-2 9mm Pistol


The SCCY CPX-2 pistol has been rated by Guns and Ammo and Handguns Magazine as a best buy. It is ideal as a lower priced (but not lower quality) pistol. This one is brand new in the factory packaging and includes 2 premium steel magazines with both flat and “pinky ” floorplates and a trigger lock. This is a hammer fired double action only pistol that is ideal for concealed carry due to its small size. It shoots the 9mm cartridge which is available for a reasonable price and in many target and anti-personal varieties. We are offering this for $269 including shipping to your local FFL.

VT Enhanced Tactical Pistol

[youtube PYfzf70jLEA]

The AR pistol has proven itself to be, perhaps, the most versatile and enjoyable platform available.  Note that this is technically a pistol and ownership falls under that category.  Make sure you are allowed to own such a thing in your locality.  We began with a premium “Wylde” barrel, chrome lined and went full premium all the way.  We added scope matched to expected performance and mounted it for perfect balance.  Set down to 5x, this gets a sight picture easily and can hit a tin can at 150 meters in 2 seconds.

 CZ-70 Pistol  7.65 Browning (Mil Surp)


This is a used CZ-70 pistol chambered in the 7.65 Browning (32ACP) It is the civilian model of the famous VZ-70 used by the Czech military and is based on the world famous Walther PP design. We have gone through this gun completely and replaced all of the internal springs and the sear. The exterior has been touched up, but it has not been totally restored to new condition. It is all black, but the photos show reflections from the slide that make it appear as a two tone. It comes with 2 7 round magazines and a hard plastic case. It is fully capable of shooting modern .32ACP ammo, both full metal jacket and hollow point. We are offering it for $249.00 including shipping to your local FFL.

Bargain Bin Items

I have been asked by one of my customers to handle the estate sale of her late husband’s guns. He was a Desert Storm veteran and died suddenly last year. The following guns are used and I will try to describe their condition.

Rossi 4 Barrel Rifle/shotgun Kit

MOS_8192b This Rossi kit consists of a single stock and foregrip and 4 interchangeable barrels. There are two .22 LR barrels; one with iron sights and one with a Redhead 4×32 scope. There is a .243 Win. Barrel with a Bushnell 3-9×40 scope and a 20 Gauge Shotgun barrel. A carrying bag is included. All of the pieces are in good used condition. We are asking $299 for the complete kit.

Shown with .243 barrel


Rossi 12 Gauge Single Shot Shotgun

MOS_8199b This is a single shot Rossi 12 gauge Shotgun. It has some cosmetic damage as shown in the pictures, but it is in good shooting condition. It functions perfectly. There is a scrape on the receiver which is much less visible than it appears in the photo and the end of the stock has teeth marks from the owner’s puppy. The cosmetic condition lowers the price to a very good buy point. This would make a great home defense or “truck” gun. We are offering this for $139.00 MOS_8203b

For further information or to purchase any of these guns, please contact Mike Chester at Chet’s Firearms of Howell, Michigan. [email protected] or phone 517-548-9558. Ask for Mike. Prices do not include shipping to your local FFL except for the SCCY and the CZ-70 pistols. Their prices include shipping.
