Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Very nice rifle. Does it shoot as good as it looks?

Looks good!
Was it hard to get the license to have it there?

Nice rifle. I'm also curious on the rules of ownership in your country.

My 'A3 is one of my best shooting military rifles, competing with my Carl Gustav M96. Here's a 100 meters 5-shot group (issue sights, front rest). I was looking to duplicate the original M2 ballistics and finally settled on 150SMK/N140/50.0.

About gun ownership in Belgium. Since 2006, all firearms are under license, including the formerly free hunting and sporting arms. A facility was preserved for active hunters and licensed sporting shooters. Both groups may acquire their, respectively hunting and sporting firearms, on presentation of a valid hunting or sport shooting licence. A simple gun registration will suffice as long the owner remains active ; passed this term, the owner either sollicites a regular gun permit or get rid of his guns. The only positive side of the new gun laws is the abandon of the formerly restriction on "military calibers". Since, the latter are considered regular hunting calibers.
