I have great respect for all of those top-tier manufacturers. I've never owned an LMT but would have no hesitation to do so. I'm pretty much all Noveske these days, although I have a couple of SBR's on Noveske u/l receivers built with BMC barrels and BCGs.

I'll take your Noveske. Give you a chance to grab that LMT.

My buddy has a nice LMT. It is for sure top of the line. I'd recommend getting one in your hands to try.

I love my LMT, and I have a POF-308, I would suggest them as well, very good quality.

Now I have not shot a DD or Noveske, but they maybe next on the list.

As much as I respect LMT (or any of the other top-tier rifles), I'm completely satisfied with my current rifles and I don't think buying one would be an upgrade over my current armory.

Would you mind letting me know how much a base model centerfire Noveske would cost?

I suppose that the base model is the Recce at $1700.



http://shopnoveske.com/collections/rifles




My Recce is a few years old and they've changed the lineup. I ordered it with the VIS. It's been a superb firearm. It's been pushed hard at several 2000-round carbine courses (Jeff Gonzales, Kyle Lamb) without a hiccup.





I also use this 11.5 inch SBR built on a Noveske matched upper/lower and using a BCM BFH barrel. Very accurate, but I had trouble with it (FTF) at a carbine course this past June. I think I fixed it by replacing a defective gas tube. Only 500 rounds since I replaced it, but so far so good.

Thanks BigMac. The Recce sounds like, and looks like it is pretty capable of being the quality I want.

And how much do you have in yours for comparison? If you don't mind?

My Light Recce is about 5 years old. It was bought with a VIS upper and a Geissele SSA trigger and without optic is was right at $2000. The photo is old, it now has an Aimpoint PRO optic, a Raptor charging handle, a BattleComp compensator, B.A.D.A.S.S. ambi selector, and a VLTOR A5 system.

The 11.5 SBR cost me about $1500 as pictured above (about 4 years ago) without the optic. I changed the rail from a DD Lite to a Noveske NSR about 6 months ago. I love that SBR...it's what I shoot preferentially everywhere except 3-gun.

I would understand, that, you have some good quality with yours. Great to hear.
